Ethier Injures Ankle

Andre Ethier injured his left ankle in Wednesday's game, and subsequently missed Thursday's game. Ethier injured the ankle returning to first base on a pick-off attempt, and he was noticeably grimacing a couple of times in Wednesday's game.

Andre also has been dealing with a bruised knee, so some time off will hopefully take care of both injuries. Ethier anticipates also missing Friday's game, but hopes to return Saturday.

"He's got some discomfort," said Torre.

After Thursday's game, Ethier said the ankle was improved but still sore. He said he didn't expect to play Friday, but was hopeful he could return by Saturday. He said he hasn't had an ankle sprain since high school.
