For the past year now, the name of Andre Ethier has come up in various trade talk around MLB, and considering the Los Angeles Dodgers' current bankruptcy issues and ownership issues, it's certainly understandable.
In his latest ESPN Insider-only blog, Buster Olney once again broached the subject, this time talking about the New York Yankees' possible interest in Ethier, especially with Nick Swisher facing free agency at the end of the 2012 season.
Ethier, who will be 30 at the beginning of next season, is currently rehabbing from arthroscopic surgery on his right knee that ended his season on Sept. 6. The knee issues were probably a good reason for Ethier's declining offensive numbers in 2011—just 11 HR and 30 doubles, his lowest numbers since his rookie year.
However, Ethier will be 100 percent healthy come spring training, and a healthy Ethier is certainly a productive Ethier, and there is no doubt teams beyond just the New York Yankees, who would be very interested in Ethier's services.
