UPDATE: The Dodgers just announced that Ethier has a left oblique injury. That’s tough stuff, as it figures to mean a DL stint. The Dodgers are already crippled offensively, so this is not what anyone needed. Well, the Giants will take it even if they know better than to gloat, but no one in Dodger Land needs it.

4:06 PM: They’re dropping like flies today, first Andy Pettitte, now Andre Ethier.

Ethier left the Dodgers-Giants game after sliding awkwardly into second base following a walk in the first inning. There have not yet been any updates regarding his condition, but he is gone. Some have tweeted that it seems like a hand injury.

Updates as warranted. Any updates that involve an extended absence of Ethier when the Dodgers have already lost Matt Kemp will be preceded by a warning for Dodgers fans to sit down before reading.

    Well this is great, first Kemp and now Ethier. Dodgers lose 3 straight and now I have to hear my girlfriend gloat that the Giants are now tied with the Dodgers for 1st.

    The dodgers are the NL team I root for but I can see the writing on the wall. It’s in Arabic and starts with Allah Akbar. Not good.
