Dodgers | Howie Kendrick deferred money

Thu, 04 Feb 2016 09:30:38 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick has $10 million salaries in 2016 and 2017, but he deferred $5 million per season without interest.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick may see time in left field and third base as well as second base, so it sounds like he'll approach 500 at-bats to keep his midrange 2B fantasy value.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick could play hot corner

Sun, 31 Jan 2016 07:20:31 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is reportedly willing to play third base, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is still expected to receive the bulk of his playing time at second base, but he could see action at the hot corner if Justin Turner (knee) isn't ready by the time the regular season starts. Kendrick is also likely to see time in left field during spring training and has prior experience playing the position. He should be viewed as a midrange second baseman who could fall down the draft board due to the timeshare situation in Los Angeles.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick could play some LF

Sat, 30 Jan 2016 13:05:21 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick could see time in left field during spring training, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick will likely be stuck into a timeshare, which will hurt his value, but the team seems willing to get creative to find him his 500 at-bats. He's a midrange second baseman that could slip in drafts due to the logjam.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick finalizing deal with Dodgers

Fri, 29 Jan 2016 14:23:49 -0800

Updating an ongoing report, free-agent 2B Howie Kendrick (Dodgers) is finalizing a two-year deal, pending a physical, with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Friday, Jan. 29, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick tips the scales -- albeit slightly -- across all the counting stats and has a .293/.333/.423 slash line for his career. He is a solid middle-tier option at the keystone given his respectable floor and reliability. Still, entering his age-32 season, don't expect a step forward statically.

MLB | Howie Kendrick in decline?

Thu, 28 Jan 2016 09:04:44 -0800

Free-agent 2B Howie Kendrick (Dodgers) has hit between .285 and .297 in each of the last five seasons, but he'll be 32 this season and played in only 122 games in 2013 and 117 contests last year. His percentage of extra-base hits has been 6.7% the last two seasons, which are the lowest figures of his career. Kendrick also doesn't walk that often, and his walk rate declined rapidly in the second half of 2015, when he had only three walks in 136 plate appearances.

Fantasy Tip: As Schoenfield notes, Kendrick's only real asset to his fantasy owners is his excellent contact rate, which allows him to have high batting averages. Aside from that he wont' give you much, which makes him mainly a deep mixed middle infielder.

Diamondbacks | Howie Kendrick still not an option in AZ

Thu, 21 Jan 2016 07:23:01 -0800

Free-agent 2B Howie Kendrick (Dodgers) is still not an option for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who are reluctant to give up their second pick (No. 39) to sign him. The team also thinks 2B Chris Owings will bounce back offensively.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is still an upper-echelon second baseman wherever he signs after the elite guys are taken in drafts.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick not likely to return

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 20:25:23 -0800

Free-agent 2B Howie Kendrick (Dodgers) is unlikely to return to the Los Angeles Dodgers. General manager Farhan Zaidi said Wednesday, Dec. 30, that "the way things are right now, we feel we're pretty set at second base with (2B Chase Utley) and (2B/OF Enrique Hernandez)."

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick might get a look from an NL West rival of the Dodgers, as the Arizona Diamondbacks have put out feelers.
