Andre Ethier trade rumors: Dodgers reportedly open to offers for OF

The Dodgers aren't looking to trade Andre Ethier, but they are listening to possibilities.

Multiple teams have inquired about the possibility of trading for Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier, but the team isn't actively looking to trade the veteran, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Ethier is signed through 2017 on a six-year, $95 million contract, so it is likely that the Dodgers would have to fork over plenty of cash in any deal.

Rosenthal identifies the Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, and Seattle Mariners as possible trade partners in a deal for Ethier, but nothing has been offered that would propel Los Angeles to move the outfielder.

Ethier hit .284/.351/.460 with 20 home runs and 36 doubles last season. He has been named to two All-Star teams, and awarded one Silver Slugger and Gold Glove award in his time with the Dodgers. The 30-year-old finished sixth in the NL MVP voting in 2009 after hitting 31 homers. 2012 was his second-best season in terms of value, as he contributed 3.4 wins above replacement.
