Dodgers | LA Dodgers send several players to DL

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 13:13:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (leg) was among a number of players placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 3. Joining him were SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder), SP Brandon McCarthy (elbow), 2B Howie Kendrick (calf), INF Alex Guerrero (knee), C Yasmani Grandal (forearm), SP Brett Anderson (back), SP Mike Bolsinger (oblique) and RP Josh Ravin (wrist).

Fantasy Tip: Los Angeles' pitching depth figures to be tested right off the bat, as Ryi is expected to be out another month while McCarthy and Anderson may not return until the second half. Ethier's absence should make Carl Crawford a full-time player again until around June, making the ex-Tampa Bay Ray standout a fine under-the-radar fantasy option. The other notable name here is Grandal, who should be a serviceable catcher in fantasy if he is healthy. He is expected back in mid-April.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson out three to five months

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 08:41:01 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) will miss three to five months after surgery to repair a bulging disc in his back Thursday, March 3.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Bolsinger might re-enter the fold now as Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is out until at least May. Bolsinger had some flashes last season and is an NL-only option and one to watch in camp for mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson has back soreness

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 08:56:25 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) was given the day off Wednesday, March 2, after experiencing back soreness after his batting practice session the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is a fringe mixed-league starter that has had significant health concerns over the years. If he's able to stay healthy, he's on a good enough team to be worth rostering.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw leads tentative rotation

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 13:41:45 -0800

The Los Angeles Dodgers appear to have set their starting rotation, with SP Clayton Kershaw leading the way. He would be followed by SP Scott Kazmir, SP Kenta Maeda, SP Brett Anderson and SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: The two K's, Kershaw and Kazmir, should go in the first half of most drafts. Kershaw will be among the top 10 selected in most drafts and could even be the first or second pitcher off the board.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson accepts offer

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 14:59:32 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson accepted a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer from the Dodgers Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Returning to the Dodgers should help Anderson continue his career resurrection. His ground-ball tendencies aided him in limiting opponents and posting a 3.69 ERA, but otherwise, his stats were mediocre at best -- 10 wins, 1.33 WHIP and 5.8 K/9. He should be viewed as a spot starter or streaming option in favorable matchup in the majority of seasonal leagues entering 2016.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson receives qualifying offer

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 17:42:16 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson received a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer from the team Friday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has one week to accept the team's qualifying offer or become a free agent. If he signs with another club, the Dodgers would receive a compensatory pick in next year's draft. Anderson went 10-9 with a 3.69 ERA in a career-high 31 regular-season starts this year, following several injury-plagued seasons. He should be drafted in the middle rounds of NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues next spring.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson a ground-ball specialist

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 14:22:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson posted a 66.3% ground-ball rate this season, which was the highest mark in the league and the highest since the 2006 season. Anderson is starting Game 3 of the National League Division Series against the New York Mets Monday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) faces a tall task attempting to limit the Mets lineup, although his ground-ball tendencies should help. He also pitched much better on the road this season with a 3.07 ERA over his 15 road outings. Still, Anderson is nothing more than a dice roll as your No. 2 starter at FantasyScore Monday.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson on plenty of rest

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 09:10:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson will be on 11 days of rest when he takes the mound against the New York Mets in Game 3 of the division series Monday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) had a pretty solid 2015 season but did allow 11 runs over two starts in September in an otherwise clean month to enter the playoffs. It's hard to say what how the long layoff will affect him against the Mets Monday, and he's a risk/reward pick on FantasyScore for your second pitching spot.

Dodgers | NLDS rotation for Dodgers

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 16:43:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw will start Game 1 of the division series against the New York Mets Friday, Oct. 9, followed by SP Zack Greinke Saturday, Oct. 10, and SP Brett Anderson Monday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: It's hard to argue against Kershaw ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) or Greinke ($8,800, 17.6% of cap) as one of your FantasyScore aces in the divisional round, but they're all the top two most expensive playoff pitchers. Anderson ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is a sleeper as a second starter.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson earns win Thursday

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 17:46:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (10-9) allowed two runs on four hits over 7 2/3 innings in a victory over the San Francisco Giants Thursday, Oct. 1, with no walks and three strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($6,300, 12.6% of cap) set career highs in games started (31) and innings pitched (180 1/3) this year and ended the regular season on a high note, after having allowed 11 runs over 8 2/3 innings in his previous two outings. His inconsistency makes him a somewhat risky play in FantasyScore.
