The Los Angeles Dodgers activated OF Matt Kemp (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 4, but he is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants. OF Mike Baxter was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: This move was expected. It's not a shock that Kemp isn't in the lineup, though, as the team will likely give him plenty of days off to keep from overworking him initially. When he's back in the lineup, he should be in your starting lineup.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said OF Carl Crawford will not travel to Australia for the team's series against the Arizona Diamondbacks next weekend so that he can attend the birth of his third child.
Fantasy Tip: With Matt Kemp (ankle) and Crawford unavailable for the two-game series in Australia, OF Scott Van Slyke will likely get the starting nod for both games in left field. OF Mike Baxter and either OF Nick Buss or OF Joc Pederson are also expected to be on the roster, but these players carry very little fantasy value.

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said he will likely use 2B Daniel Murphy at third base and move OF Eric Young Jr. from the outfield to second base with 3B David Wright (hamstring) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: This opens up a spot in the outfield for Mike Baxter and Andrew Brown in left field. They should be considered, starting with Baxter, in NL-only universes.

The New York Mets have placed 3B David Wright (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list with a right hamstring strain. In a corresponding move, the team recalled OF Mike Baxter from Triple-A Las Vegas.
Fantasy Tip: Manager Terry Collins mentioned Josh Satin, Justin Turner and Daniel Murphy as options to play third base while Wright is out of the lineup. Satin and Turner could be options in NL-only leagues if they get a majority of the playing time at third base. Murphy already receives regular playing time and probably is not available in most NL-only and mixed leagues.
