According to Dodgers insiders, Andre Ethier is on his way to Miami joining the Dodgers for the 3 game series and could possibly be reinstated by as early as tonight.
Ethier has been sidelined with a fractured tibia after fouling a foul ball off his shin in a spring training game on March 18, against the Diamondbacks.
Andre Ethier will not be activated for tonight's game, but plan is to activate him tomorrow. #Dodgers

Ethier, 33, was one of the best hitters on the Dodgers last year posting an .852 OPS with 14 home runs in 142 games.
As the Dodgers come down the final stretch of the season, the potential addition of Ethier this weekend, adds even more depth to a Dodgers outfield that is currently getting strong production from Puig and Reddick in right field.
