Ethier (leg) will begin a rehab assignment at High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Thursday, JP Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier is yet to play in 2016, but the team recently revealed that its hoping to have the veteran back sometime in mid-September. It's unclear how long he'll remain on rehab, but with the minor league season winding down, he could join the Dodgers when rosters expand next month. Any expectations for the 34-year-old should be relatively low, though he hit .294 with 53 RBI in 142 games last season. On Thursday, Ethier will go up against the Padres' Tyson Ross, who is also on a High-A rehab assignment at Lake Elsinore.

Ethier (leg) has increased baseball activities and is now running the bases, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier had been taking batting practice, but is now running bases at 75 percent. The club has yet to indicate when he'll head out on a rehab assignment, but his eventual return from the DL will add another sound bat to the lineup, as the 34-year-old posted a .294/.366/.486 line during the 2015 campaign.

Ethier (leg) took batting practice on the field prior to Tuesday's game, David Vassegh of AM 570 Los Angeles reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier cleared a fairly significant hurdle Tuesday, taking on-field batting practice for the first time since he suffered the injury in March, but he remains out a timetable to return. A bone scan earlier this month showed that Ethier's fracture was still not completely healed, but the outfielder said he is optimistic that he can return and contribute this season.

Ethier (leg) had a bone scan conducted Friday, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

The results have yet to come back but Ethier will be looking for positive news as he's been recovering from a tibia fracture for nearly four months. The 34-year-old has progressed to soft toss and light jogging in recent weeks and is shooting for a return to the majors sometime in August.

Manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that he's hoping Ethier will be able to return as early as August 2, Andy McCullough of the LA Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier remains on the 60-day DL, and he's still about a month out from a return to the Dodgers. He's making steady progress, though, and could begin playing in rehab games in roughlytwo weeks. The August 2 return date is oddly specific for such a long-term injury, but it marks the start of a three-game set against the Rockies in Colorado and comes on the heels of an August 1 off day.

Ethier (leg) is with the Dodgers in Los Angeles and has been cleared for increased baseball activity, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier will be able to return to soft toss swings and light jogging, though this report does little to establish a potential return timetable. The Dodgers are down a left-handed outfielder due to the placement of Joc Pederson (shoulder) on the DL, so Ethier's return may get the fast track if the team feels he responds well to the increased workload.

The Dodgers clarified that Ethier won't get another scan on his injured leg this week, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier was originally scheduled to get a scan on Thursday, but the Dodgers now say that this will not occur, as he has a lot of other things to do before he'll be evaluated again. It's likely more updates will come out as soon as he is rescheduled for evaluation.
