Dodgers | Andre Ethier on the block?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are willing to trade a veteran piece on their roster in order to add prospects that could help them out beyond this season, and OF Andre Ethier is the name most mentioned in trade rumors. They are also willing to carry Ethier as a fourth outfielder for the rest of the season as insurance. OF Yasiel Puig's emergence has made Ethier expendable, and OF Joc Pederson is a year away from making his impact at the big league level. Los Angeles seems content to stick with 3B Juan Uribe at third base.

Fantasy Tip: Whether the team trades Ethier likely depends on how confident they are in Carl Crawford (hamstring) returning to full health. Ethier would likely benefit from a change of scenery, especially if it's somewhere that will guarantee him consistent playing time.
