Andre Ethier To Rehab With Class A Rancho Cucamonga

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to get their pair of two-time All-Star outfielders back on July 13, as Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier are both expected to return from the disabled list for the Dodgers' first game after the break. Kemp is currently playing in a minor league rehab assignment, and Ethier will do the same next week.

Ethier, who is on the disabled list with a strained left oblique, will play in two minor league rehab games with Class A Rancho Cucmonga next Wednesday and Thursday, per Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times. This was a change in thinking from earlier in the week, as manager Don Mattingly said on Wednesday that Ethier likely wouldn't need to play in a rehab game before returning to the Dodgers.

Ethier suffered the oblique injury on June 27 in San Francisco on a check swing against Tim Lincecum of the Giants. He missed six games before getting placed on the disabled list on Wednesday, retroactive to June 28. Ethier was able to return to taking batting practice with the team on Wednesday.

This season, Ethier is hitting .291/.357/.491 with 23 doubles, 10 home runs and 55 RBI in 75 games. He and Kemp have combined to hit 22 of the Dodgers' 48 home runs this season.
