Los Ángeles – The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed outfielder Andre Ethier on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique (retroactive to June 28) and reinstated Mark Ellis from the disabled list. Ethier was batting .291 with 23 doubles, 10 homers and 55 RBI in 75 games this season.
Ellis, who suffered a left leg injury in the Dodgers’ May 18 game against St. Louis, was hitting .273 with 27 runs scored, two home runs and nine RBI in 37 games prior to his stint on the disabled list. The 35-year-old went 4-for-13 (.286) with three RBI in four rehab games with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, including a two-hit game for the Quakes last night.
The Los Angeles Dodgers, pioneers in sport and world culture, have won more games than any other club in the National League since moving to Los Angeles in 1958. Since the start of the modern era in baseball, the Dodgers of Brooklyn and Los Angeles, combined, have won six World Series titles and 21 National League pennants with a cumulative attendance of more than 190 million, the highest total in the history of baseball or any other sport.
