Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Darwin Barney is expected to share shortstop duties with INFs Miguel Rojas and Justin Turner with SS Hanley Ramirez (oblique) on the disabled list. "We will mix and match a little bit," manager Don Mattingly said. "We'll see what Darwin looks like there. I know he's played a little bit (of shortstop) in Triple-A, but I can't just sit here and say I will just use one guy all the time. It will be a little bit of mixing and matching." Rojas figures to see the most time at the 6 because of his defensive prowess. Barney has only 19 games of experience at shortstop at the major league level.
Fantasy Tip: This is probably a situation to avoid. But if you are desperate for a middle infielder in an NL-only league, Rojas is probably your best bet, because he'll see the most PT there. However, he's a defense-first player, so don't expect much from his stick.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed SS Hanley Ramirez (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right oblique. The move is retroactive to Saturday, Aug. 9. In a corresponding move, 2B Darwin Barney was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez could end up missing more than the minimum 15 days. Miguel Rojas is expected to get the bulk of the playing time at shortstop while Ramirez is sidelined but should only be considered in NL-only leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Barney can be ignored in most leagues, since his playing time will be very sporadic.
