Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Either has a huge setback with his ankle injury and could miss the start of the postseason, according to a report by Mark Saxon of ESPN.com. If true, this could negatively affect the Dodgers pennant hopes.
From ESPN :
"It's frustrating to be where we're at right now, but we still have time," Ethier said. "Not a lot of time."
Ethier has been out since Sept. 13 with the injury, although he had a pinch-hitting at-bat Sunday in which he struck out. The Dodgers were fortunate Matt Kemp returned from a lengthy stint on the disabled list just three days after Ethier was hurt. Kemp once again has taken over center field, batting .300 in the 20 at-bats since he returned.
The Dodgers originally hoped Ethier would be in Tuesday's starting lineup. Now, they're targeting the regular season's final series, this weekend against the Colorado Rockies, to get Ethier back on the field.
