Dodgers | Howie Kendrick could start rehab this week

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:30:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring) could begin his rehab assignment by the end of this week.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) won't be back until sometime early in September, but when he's back playing, he should go right back to being an excellent value on FantasyScore as L.A.'s starting second baseman. Chase Utley ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will likely move to some sort of utility role, which will make him tougher to rely on in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick will return as starter

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 09:46:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring), who is expected to return in roughly three weeks, will return to the starting second base job when he's healthy despite the acquisition of 2B Chase Utley, according to general manager Farhan Zaidi. Utley has worked at first and third base, so he could move to a utility role when Kendrick is back.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is having a great season for the Dodgers and should be held in all formats. Utley's ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) daily value will be more intriguing playing for the first-place Dodgers, especially when considering he's hit well since returning from the DL. However, his boost in value in standard leagues will be short-lived, since he'll likely be in a utility role in several weeks.

Dodgers | New timeline for Howie Kendrick

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 14:23:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring) could be out until mid-September. He received a platelet-rich plasma injection Monday, Aug. 17, and manager Don Mattingly said an MRI exam on Kendrick's left hamstring showed a strain between a Grade 1 and 2 Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Hence the pending acquisition of veteran 2B Chase Utley ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) from the Philadelphia Phillies. Kendrick's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) seasonal value drops considerably, and at this stage of the season, it isn't out of the question to replace him in the majority of formats. Continue to check back for updates.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick to DL

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 16:12:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring Monday, Aug. 10, and the Dodgers called up 2B Jose Peraza from Class AAA Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick, who was hitting nearly .300, should be retained in all formats. Peraza, who was recently traded to the Dodgers from the Atlanta Braves, is a notable second base prospect that should've already been owned in the majority of dynasty formats. He can definitely help owners in NL-only and deep mixed formats, too. You should take a wait-and-see approach with him in shallow mixed and daily leagues.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick expected to land on DL

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 09:26:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring) is likely headed to the DL after leaving the game Sunday, Aug. 9, against the Pittsburgh Pirates with a strained left hamstring. Kendrick missed 10 weeks in 2008 with a hamstring strain and he said this injury felt similar. Manager Don Mattingly has stated that OF Enrique Hernandez is likely to be the full-time second baseman while Kendrick is out.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is expected to get full-time at bats in Kendrick's absence, which provides some short-term value in NL-only and deep mixed leagues but his offensive profile is limited. Jose Peraza, who the Dodgers just received in a trade from the Braves, could find his way to Los Angeles if Hernandez is unable to perform, and he has stolen base value if he gets an opportunity.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick leaves game

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 05:39:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring) left the game Sunday, Aug. 9, after he suffered a strained left hamstring. OF Enrique Hernandez replaced him in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: It's too soon to tell whether Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) will miss a big chunk of time, although he could be day to day. Keep an eye on this for now and take him out of your lineup until more is known.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick has three-hit game

Wed, 05 Aug 2015 22:07:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick went 3-for-5 with a run scored Wednesday, Aug. 5, against the Philadelphia Phillies, his second multi-hit game in three outings. He also has two or more hits in four of the past seven games.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has re-emerged as a strong FantasyScore option at a cut rate price while he is red hot.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick sitting vs. Mets

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:21:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 23. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at second base and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is receiving a night off, but the second baseman is also currently slumping through July with a .265/.301/.625 slash line. FantasyScore players should view Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) as a potential source of cap relief Thursday.

Dodgers | LAD will try to re-sign Howie Kendrick

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:35:09 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to try to re-sign 2B Howie Kendrick, who is a free agent after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) is a player likely to garner plenty of interest if he hits the open market. Right now, he garners plenty of interest from FantasyScore players, as he has a .730 OPS against left-handed pitching and an even better .766 OPS against right-handers.

Cubs | Chicago hungry for Howie Kendrick

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:34:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is expected to be pursued by the Chicago Cubs in the offseason, according to sources. Cubs manager Joe Maddon was a bench coach with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim when Kendrick was a minor leaguer in the organization.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick still has a little left in the tank. At $4,200 (or 8.4% of cap) right now, Kendrick is a decent mid-level value in FantasyScore.
