LOS ANGELES – Say this about the off-season rumors that had the Dodgers shopping outfielder Andre Ethier – they were persistent. Ethier called them more "entertaining" than unsettling. He said his mind was set at ease early on when both Dodgers CEO Stan Kasten and GM Ned Colletti publicly shot down the rumors. Colletti and manager Don Mattingly called to assure him he was in the team's plans for 2013, Ethier said.
