LOS ANGELES (AP) — Andre Ethier went on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with a strained left oblique, leaving the struggling Los Angeles Dodgers without two of their All-Star outfielders. Matt Kemp has been out since May 30.
Ethier’s move was retroactive to June 28.
The right fielder was batting .291 with 23 doubles, 10 home runs and 55 RBIs in 75 games this season. Matt Kemp, who plays center field, has been bothered by a recurring left hamstring problem.
Kemp is currently on a minor league rehab assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga. He went 2-for-3 with two singles, a walk, a strikeout and a run scored as the designated hitter in his first rehab game on Tuesday night.
