How does Andre Ethier figure historically?

As expected the Dodgers bought out Andre Ethier today making him a free agent. That doesn’t mean he won’t return to the Dodgers but given the crowded left field situation, it would seem doubtful.

Now that the Ethier era has ended, how does he figure historically?

How about the metrics like OPS+?
22nd in OPS+ for LAD with at least 1,000 PA.
10th in OPS+ for LAD with at least 2,000 PA
6th in OPS+ for LAD with at least 3,000 PA
4th in OPS+ for LAD with at least 4,000 PA
2nd in OPS+ for LAD with at least 5,000 PA – note, only nine LAD have ever had at least 5,000 PA.

How about the metrics like bWAR?

14th in bWAR for LAD with at least 1,000 PA

If Andre had been able to play even 100 games the past two years he would have moved up in quite a few LAD categories but when you lose two years to health issues, instead of becoming one of the all time LAD you kind of get stuck in the middle.

Andre hit the 8th most home runs in LAD history.

Andre was 9th in runs scored, Andre was 5th in RBI.
Andre is basically in the top 10 of every offensive category for the Los Angeles Dodgers .

Andre started playing for the Dodgers in 2006, so how does he stack up OPS+ and bWAR as an outfielder in the NL during his run?

Interesting how Ethier and Kemp are connected at the hip all over this page.
