Ethier Injured

All-star right-fielder Andre Ethier has been held out of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ starting lineup because of a sore right knee, and the team is disputing the nature of the injury. Ethier went public with his problem in Sunday’s Los Angeles Times, which caused a clamour throughout the clubhouse and resulted in a 15-minute closed-door meeting with manager Don Mattingly and general manager Ned Colletti.

The outfielder’s remarks to a Times columnist gave the impression that Ethier had repeatedly told the Dodgers he couldn’t play and that they instead insisted he did.

Mattingly denied that implication, saying before the series finale against Colorado that he was blindsided by the information in the column.
