The box score is here.
Andre Ethier is in Los Angeles this week for a CT scan on his fractured right tibia. Ethier said he had the scan this morning but is still waiting for team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache to read the results.
Potentially, Ethier could begin weight-bearing exercises on an Alter-G machine soon if the results of the scan allow. But that’s getting a bit ahead of ourselves. For now, Ethier can put weight on his right leg while walking with crutches. He said he’s been able to do that for about two weeks.
Ethier was given a 10-to-14 week timetable for recovery when he fouled a ball of his leg March 22.
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier returned to the clubhouse two days after he was diagnosed with a fractured right tibia. Ethier is still walking in crutches and probably will be for six weeks. That’s how long he was told not to put any pressure on his broken leg.
“It never felt right,” he said. “Still isn’t.”
GLENDALE, Ariz. — Andre Ethier remained on crutches Monday, three days after he injured his right shin on a foul ball. The veteran outfielder was scheduled to undergo further tests to rule out the possibility of a fracture.
“He just is not feeling well,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after the Dodgers lost 6-3 to the Seattle Mariners at Camelback Ranch. “He’s not responding. … Trying to stay positive, but just the way he’s moving around so gingerly and not able to bear weight. We’re waiting.”
Ethier was diagnosed with a contusion after his initial x-ray Friday and was expected to miss just 2-3 days.
“After a contusion, even if it gets you pretty good, you should feel a little less discomfort,” Roberts said.
A fracture could take weeks to heal and would almost certainly land Ethier on the disabled list to begin the regular season. Ethier was named the Dodgers’ starting left fielder early in camp, and his absence would open a door for veteran Carl Crawford to seize more playing time.
Results of the scan could be announced as early as tonight.
