Ethier returning to lineup Monday

DENVER -- Andre Ethier is expected to be activated off the Dodgers' disabled list for Monday night's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks, manager Joe Torre said on Sunday.

"Last night went well," said Torre. "I expect him to play tomorrow, or the next day."

Ethier completed a two-game Minor League rehabilitation assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque on Saturday night in Memphis, going 2-for-3 with two RBIs and three runs scored.

He was placed on the DL on May 15 after suffering a broken little finger on his right hand during batting practice.
