The decision to send Andre Ethier to the 15-day disabled list or not will have to wait until Monday or Tuesday. Team physician Dr. Neal ElAttrache and hand specialist Dr. Steve Shin both examined the broken first knuckle on Ethier's right pinkie.
There is no treatment for a fracture this small, apparently. It simply has to heal on its own. The question now is whether or not Andre can tolerate the pain or not.
A splint was put on the finger today. Ethier could still make a trip to the disabled list.
