The player expressed his views on his time spent with the Dodgers in a recent comment,
“I look forward to coming back to Los Angeles and Dodger Stadium, places I’m so lucky to have called home for the last 12 years,” Ethier said in a statement. “There’s nothing like stepping out on the field at Dodger Stadium and looking up and seeing the faithful Dodger Blue supporting you, and I’m grateful for the reception and support I received in all my years playing there.”
Due to his leg and back injuries in the 2016-17 season, he has lost his edge but has been a fantastic player throughout his career and will most certainly be missed by his teammates at Dodgers and his fans.
