Dodgers | Carl Crawford becoming everyday LF

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 15:39:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is back in left field over OF Andre Ethier Monday, Aug. 11. Ethier has started only three of the team's last 17 games. However Crawford has hit just .196 during that stretch. "Carl, before he got hurt, was probably swinging the bat better than anyone we had," manager Don Mattingly said. "I feel like Carl's going to get back to that." Mattingly also prefers Crawford's speed and versatility over Ethier. OF Scott Van Slyke has been drawing most of the starts in left field when the team faces a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: More playing time for Crawford will make him appeal to those in deep mixed leagues, but not if he continues to stink it up at the plate. Crawford definitely is more intriguing because of his speed than Ethier. Ethier should only be owned in NL-only leagues right now.

Dodgers | Juan Uribe out

Wed, 06 Aug 2014 15:25:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 6. 2B Justin Turner is starting in his place. Also, both OFs Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier are starting, with OF Matt Kemp serving as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Uribe receives a day off after his big night Tuesday. Take him out of your daily lineups if he's in there.

Dodgers | Hanley Ramirez claimed

Tue, 05 Aug 2014 11:11:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez was claimed/blocked on non-revocable waivers, while OFs Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford and SP Josh Beckett cleared waivers.

Fantasy Tip: Relax folks. This doesn't mean Ramirez is being traded soon. The Dodgers now have the right to pull Han-Ram back off waivers and keep him, or work out a trade with the claiming club. It's highly unlikely Los Angeles wants to trade Ramirez.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford on lineup card, not starting

Thu, 10 Jul 2014 15:42:29 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (ankle) is listed as a reserve on the lineup card Thursday, July 10, against the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Expect the Dodgers to activate Crawford from the disabled list before tonight's game. Crawford will likely be eased back into playing time, but he was scorching hot before his injury. He is worth considering in all formats. His activation will leave the Dodgers' outfield stocked with options. Scott Van Slyke and Andre Either are likely to see the least playing time going forward. To a lesser degree, Matt Kemp will also see less playing time.

Dodgers | No changes when Carl Crawford returns?

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 13:56:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford's (ankle) return isn't expected to change the lineup, according to manager Don Mattingly. There could be a logjam with OFs Matt Kemp, Yasiel Puig and Andre Ethier also in the fold.

Fantasy Tip: What does this exactly mean? We're not sure, and we probably won't know until Mattingly starts filling out his lineups. There's a chance he could ride the hot hand. If anything, it likely means Crawford won't see enough consistent playing time to be considered in standard mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke playing important role

Tue, 10 Jun 2014 09:48:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke hit two home runs in the team's victory Monday, June 9, and currently leads the team's outfielders with a 1.060 OPS. Van Slyke has played in a very limited role off the bench for the Dodgers, often matching up against left-handed hitters. Eleven of his 20 hits have gone for extra-base hits, and he has walked 18 times in 40 games. Manager Don Mattingly said he is considering platooning Van Slyke with OF Andre Ethier in center field.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke's playing time is too thin and unpredictable to make him a fixture in a standard mixed league. But he should be owned in NL-only leagues and considered in a deep enough mixed league, especially if he starts platooning in center with Ethier.

Dodgers | Won't call up Joc Pederson yet

Thu, 29 May 2014 05:45:43 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers refuse to call up OF Joc Pederson until an everyday lineup spot opens up. "We don't feel like it's the right time right now for Joc," said manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: After Carl Crawford's ankle injury, they'll keep rolling with Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, with a sprinkle of Scott Van Slyke, instead. Pederson is having an MVP-like year for Class AAA Albuquerque, so whenever he does come up, he'll be an instant fantasy add.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier getting consistent PT

Wed, 28 May 2014 08:33:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is receiving consistent playing time as the team's center fielder lately ahead of the struggling OF Matt Kemp. Ethier drove in the first four runs Tuesday, May 27, and increased his RBI total to 25 on the year. Kemp wasn't in the starting lineup for the fifth straight game Tuesday, and the coaching staff is waiting for Kemp to be comfortable enough in left field to play there on a regular basis alongside Ethier.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp's poor defense in center hasn't done him any favors, either. Ethier should now be owned in most mixed leagues now that he's playing everyday. With Carl Crawford (ankle) injured again, Kemp should be able to start seeing more consistent at-bats in left.
