MLB Note - Los Angeles Dodgers Ethier, Andre

Nov 6, 2017 - 7:55 AM OF Andre Ethier received a $2.5 million buyout and will become a free agent after the Dodgers declined his $17.5 million option for next season on Sunday.

The 35-year-old was the longest-tenured Dodger after 12 seasons with the club. However, his role was sharply reduced due to a fractured tibia in 2016 and a herniated disk in his back this year. Ethier drove in Los Angeles' lone run with a pinch-hit single in the Game 7 World Series loss to the Houston Astros on Wednesday. Ethier was 4-for-13 (.308) with a homer in the postseason after having just 34 at-bats and hitting two home runs in the regular season.
