Prospect Profile: Andre Ethier

Andre Ethier can flat out hit. After dominating the junior college circuit at Chandler-Gilbert CC, Ethier transferred to Arizona State University, where he was one of the top Pac-10 hitters. The Phoenix, AZ native starred for his hometown school, compiling a career collegiate batting average of .371. He was first-team All-Pac-10 during both of his seasons as a Sun Devil. He was also an honorable mention All-American during his final season.

All of these accomplishments served to entice the A's to use a second round pick on Ethier in 2003, although their interest in the rangy left-hander had been piqued years earlier when Oakland had selected him in the 37th round of the 2001 draft.
