Los Angeles Dodgers SS Dee Gordon will play for Tigres del Licey in the Dominican Republic during winter ball, and he is being listed as an outfielder.
Fantasy Tip: The outfield is pretty packed in L.A., but middle infield doesn't appear to be an option for Gordon either, with Hanley Ramirez and Alexander Guerrero in the mix. If he does gain eligibility at OF, it will help his fantasy appeal somewhat, but he still has a long way to go before re-emerging as a must-start fantasy option consideration.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (ankle) worked out with the team Tuesday, Oct. 1, and is hoping to make the playoff roster for the National League Division Series as a pinch hitter and later get into a game in the outfield. "It's probably just a hitting role, that's what our best hope is," Ethier said after the workout. "Who knows, maybe we wake up Saturday and Sunday and it feels good enough to go full-go. Hitting-wise it feels good enough. We'll worry about what to do after I get on first base then. I just want to figure out a way to contribute anyway I can and not become a hindrance." He hit and threw Tuesday but didn't do any running. The team would like to see Ethier run before putting him on the roster. 2B Skip Schumaker will start in center field in Game 1 Thursday, Oct. 3, but SS Dee Gordon and OFs Scott Van Slyke and Jerry Hairston Jr. worked out there Tuesday.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Dee Gordon took grounders at second base during pregame warmups Friday, Sept. 27. "I don't think Dee playing second base is part of the equation," manager Don Mattingly said. "I think the value of Dee is to use him late to steal a bag in a close game."

The Los Angeles Dodgers have recalled SP Stephen Fife, RP Peter Moylan, INF Dee Gordon, OF Scott Van Slyke and C Drew Butera from Triple-A Albuquerque.

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled OF Scott Van Slyke from Triple-A Albuquerque Friday, Aug. 16, and optioned SS Dee Gordon to Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke will likely just be used as outfield depth and probably isn't worth grabbing in fantasy circles unless Andre Ethier's calf issue worsens.

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled SS Dee Gordon from the minors Monday, Aug. 5, and optioned SP Stephen Fife to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: This could be a sign that Hanley Ramirez is heading to the disabled list with a shoulder injury. There is no update on Ramirez's MRI exam. In deep mixed leagues, it wouldn't hurt to stash Gordon if you own Hanley or Jhonny Peralta or Everth Cabrera, who were suspended for 50 games Monday.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have optioned SS Dee Gordon to Triple-A Albuquerque. In a corresponding move, the team activated OF Jerry Hairston Jr. (knee) from the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon being sent down could indicate Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) could be close to returning. Nick Punto and Luis Cruz could see time at shortstop until Ramirez returns. Neither should be considered in mixed leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Dee Gordon snapped a hitless streak of 25 at-bats Saturday, May 25, against the St. Louis Cardinals, with a fourth-inning single.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) is doing running drills Tuesday, May 21.
Fantasy Tip: It appears as though it may be tough for Ramirez to beat his initial timetable of four weeks. There's a chance that the Dodgers shift Ramirez back to third base when he's ready to return in order to keep Dee Gordon at shortstop.

The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled C Tim Federowicz from the minors Wednesday, May 8, and optioned SS Justin Sellers in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Ramon Hernandez hasn't been contributing at all with his bat, so expect Federowicz to be the primary offensive backup to A.J. Ellis. Sellers being optioned confirms that the Dodgers will run with Dee Gordon as their primary shortstop with Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) out. There's a decent chance Gordon will stay at short when Ramirez returns, too.
