Andre Ethier OF LAD 2 Months

Rob Bradford of WEEI.com hears from an industry source that the Red Sox have not shown interest in a trade for Dodgers' outfielder Andre Ethier.

The Red Sox are exploring the trade market for outfielders, but Either isn't considered an option at this time and GM Ben Cherington said teams aren't really in the trade mindset quite yet. Ethier still has three years and $53.5 million left on his contract after 2014, a large sum of money for someone who is best utilized as a utility player due to his poor production against left-handed pitching.

Andre Ethier hit a three-run homer off Mike Bolsinger in the win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Ethier is hitting just .214 in 56 at-bats, but he's driven in 13 runs anyway. That he's sitting against lefties makes him a mediocre play in mixed leagues right now, but he should have more value as the year goes on.

Andre Ethier went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles, a steal, and an RBI Wednesday against the Padres.

Hopefully this contest spurs Ethier from his sluggish start; he entered 2-for-15 with two singles. Once Matt Kemp returns, Ethier can finally be confined to a strong-side platoon role analysts have been demanding for a few years now. He can handle Joe Ross, sure, but southpaws give him fits. Over the past three years, Ethier posted an .892 OPS against right-handers and a .596 OPS against lefties.
