Dodgers | Yasiel Puig expected to be sent down

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is expected to be sent down because he won't earn enough playing time in the outfield on the major league roster. The team can also delay his free agency clock if they start him down on the farm. Puig is hitting .527 this spring, and manager Don Mattingly has hinted that he could make the opening day roster.

Fantasy Tip: Puig's inclusion on the roster would probably be directly tied to the fact that the team wants insurance for Carl Crawford (elbow) in the outfield. Don't expect Puig to be on roster, though, but he will probably be in the bigs at some point this season. Consider him in keeper leagues and NL-only formats.
