Manager Dave Roberts said Ethier (back) may not return until September, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier, who has been sidelined since spring training, appears to have suffered yet another setback in his recovery from a back injury. A clearer timetable for his return should start to materialize once he resumes baseball activities, but Ethier appears to be a ways away from returning to the big club.

Ethier (back) has not partaken in any baseball activities yet and is not expected to return until after the All Star break, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier has been sidelined since spring training, and it doesn't seem like he's making any progress at all in his recovery process. A firmer timetable for his return should be revealed once he's able to ramp up his activity.

Ethier (back) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

With Ethier off the 40-man roster for the time being, it allowed the Dodgers to claim Justin Marks off waivers from the Rays. This is more of a procedural move than anything, as it still would line Ethier up to return sometime in June. More details on his recovery progress should emerge as his return date nears.

Ethier (back) is not expected to be ready to return to the Dodgers until June, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier still hasn't begun baseball activities and is expected to require somewhere near a full spring training prior to returning to the lineup, which pushes back the embattled outfielder's timetable even further. Nothing is set in stone as of now, but a more specific gameplan should come forth once he's able to ramp up his activity a bit more.

Ethier (back) is uncleared for activity and remains without a timetable to return, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Timesr reports.

EDGE Analysis

It has been over two weeks since Ethier began running, but the herniated disk in his back is still bothering him. Ethier will likely need a substantial rehab assignment before he can return to the majors, so expect him to miss at least another two weeks, if not more as this injury lingers.

Ethier (back) began running Wednesday but has yet to be cleared to resume baseball activity, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier is still feeling some discomfort in his back, though he did begin running again. He still remains without a timetable for his return, so it will be a situation to monitor as the date he is eligible to come off the disabled list approaches (April 9).

Ethier (back) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Ethier was diagnosed with a mild herniated disk in mid-March and has been shut down for the past couple of weeks. He is set to resume baseball activities during the first week of April and is eligible to come off of the disabled list on April 9.

Ethier (back) will not resume baseball activities until the first week of April, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

The soon-to-be 35-year-old might be the odd-man out when the regular season begins, as L.A. has a glut of outfielders. He isn't a bad stash option, especially in NL-only formats, as he still has plenty of power. However, expect his season to get off to a rather slow go.

Ethier (back) will visit with a doctor Friday or Saturday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran likely will land on the disabled list as the season begins. However, Ethier, who turns 35 in April, could be worth a cheap stash in fantasy leagues, but the Dodgers' large collection of outfielders allows them to take their time working him back into the fold.

Ethier (back) has been diagnosed with a mild herniated disk and will be shut down for 7-10 days, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports.

EDGE Analysis

While manager Dave Roberts said the injury is not as severe as the herniated disk Clayton Kershaw dealt with last year, he added that it would be "tough" for Ethier to be ready for Opening Day, AM 570's David Vassegh reports. It is unlikely that he will be able to get right back into game action when he is declared ready for baseball activity, so a DL stint to start the season seems likely.
