GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier was scheduled to have a bone scan Monday on his sore right shin.

Ethier has been on crutches since fouling a ball off his shin Friday during a spring game against the Arizona Diamondbacks. X-rays on Friday revealed no broken bones.

“He’s not feeling well and not responding,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Monday while awaiting results of the scan. “After a contusion, even if it hits you pretty good, you should still feel less discomfort and he’s just not there yet.”

Ethier batted .294 with 14 homers and 53 RBIs in 395 at-bats last season. He also had seven triples and a .366 on-base percentage.

He is the Dodgers’ projected starter in left field this year.

“Sometimes X-rays don’t tell the whole story, so that’s why we wanted to get a bone scan,” Roberts added. “Either the X-rays hold true or there is a fracture.”
