Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (ankle) worked out with the team Tuesday, Oct. 1, and is hoping to make the playoff roster for the National League Division Series as a pinch hitter and later get into a game in the outfield. "It's probably just a hitting role, that's what our best hope is," Ethier said after the workout. "Who knows, maybe we wake up Saturday and Sunday and it feels good enough to go full-go. Hitting-wise it feels good enough. We'll worry about what to do after I get on first base then. I just want to figure out a way to contribute anyway I can and not become a hindrance." He hit and threw Tuesday but didn't do any running. The team would like to see Ethier run before putting him on the roster. 2B Skip Schumaker will start in center field in Game 1 Thursday, Oct. 3, but SS Dee Gordon and OFs Scott Van Slyke and Jerry Hairston Jr. worked out there Tuesday.
