Andre Ethier left the Dodgers briefly Wednesday to have MRI and CT scans on his sprained left ankle in Los Angeles. The team announced that the sprain hasn’t healed, and Ethier won’t be cleared to play until he is able to run the bases without pain.
Ethier attempted to run the bases below full speed prior to Tuesday’s game in San Francisco, but cut the session short. His availability for the playoffs is still to be determined.
The National League Division Series begins Oct. 3.
