Ethier's Little Bro has a Baseball Card

Well, I was checking out the checklist from the recently released 2012 Bowman Baseball card set and discovered that a certain prospect with family ties to the Dodgers has just received his very first real Baseball card.  Check it out above.

It is of Devon Ethier, who is Andre's younger brother.  The Dodgers drafted him in the 32nd round of the 2010 draft.  I did a little bit of searching and discovered that he didn't play much in 2010, but became more of a fixture in the Arizona Rookie League the following year.  Unfortunately, his numbers there were horrible.  I have not been able to find any current stats from the 2012 season.  Does anyone know where they might be?  Is he still in the Arizona League, or did he get move up to Single A?  Anyone know?
