ST. LOUIS -- Andre Ethier is back on the Dodgers' bench. Skip Schumaker will start in center field for the Dodgers in Game 2 of the National League Championship Series on Saturday. Ethier limped out of the visiting clubhouse after a 3-2 loss on Friday night with a team doctor by his side. Ethier started Game 1 in center field, his first start since Sept. 13. Ethier has been hampered by discomfort above his left ankle -- a condition similar to shin splints -- and he was limited to pinch-hitting in the NL division series.

Now comes another honor. According to figures released by MLB.com, Puig's No. 66 jersey is among the 10 bestsellers in baseball, outdrawing the last two American League MVPs -- Justin Verlander and Miguel Cabrera -- as well as teammates Matt Kemp and Clayton Kershaw and Boston's Dustin Pedroia.
