Ethier who has started 50 games in right field and 47 games in center field this season for the Dodgers is expected to return to the lineup either Wednesday or Friday.

Andre Ethier missed Tuesday's game against the Mets with what was first termed as tightness in his left calf. But it turned around to be much more serious than a scratch from the lineup as Ethier went to the hospital to have it checked out.

Ethier's calf tightness stemmed from getting hit by a pitch on Aug. 4 at Wrigley Field per Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. Ethier said his calf hadn't healed properly and he was sent to the hospital per J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News.
