Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier will remain the starter in left field when teammate Carl Crawford returns from the disabled list, according to the Orange County Register. Ethier is hitting .287 with 10 home runs and 33 RBI on the season, but has really turned it up in July, as he has posted a .996 OPS in 13 games this month. “At this point, Andre’s kind of taken that spot, to be honest with you,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “Carl’s going to have to work his way back in. We’ll figure a way to use him, for sure. But he’s going to have to work his way in.” Crawford is expected to rejoin the team on Monday after finishing up a minor league rehab assignment, but it sounds as though it will take a trade or injury for him to regain a starting spot in the Dodgers' outfield.
