Andre Ethier made two consecutive starts on Friday and Saturday for the first time in over a month. Some may call Ethier’s 2014 campaign as frustrating however, Ethier described this season as humbling.
The 32-year-old veteran outfielder expressed that he made the conscious decision to sacrifice pride and playing time for the betterment of the team. Though he isn’t an everyday starter, general manager Ned Colletti sees Ethier as a valuable player who can provide power off the bench this postseason.
This season, Ethier is batting .249 with four home runs and 42 RBIs over 130 games. It’s the fewest amount of games Ethier has played in since his rookie reason.
