According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andre Ethier has made it clear that he is now open to signing a contract extension with the team before he hits free agency. While Ethier "seemed to have issues" with the McCourt regime, he's happy under the new ownership group.

The 30-year-old slugger reportedly met with GM Ned Colletti last week, though the two sides aren't close to signing a new deal. Estimates for a new Ethier contract range from 6 years/$90M to Jayson Werth money (7/$126M).
