Los Angeles Dodgers SP Joe Wieland avoided arbitration with the team, as the sides agreed on a $590,000 salary for 2016.
Fantasy Tip: Wieland may be used out of the bullpen, but there is always a chance he could sneak into the No. 5 spot in the rotation. Where you draft him depends on his position. If he's a reliever in the early innings Wieland carries little to no value, but a fifth starter could place Wieland in the very late rounds of NL drafts.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mat Latos (neck) was scratched from his start Wednesday, Sept. 9, with a stiff neck. SP Joe Wieland will start in his place.
Fantasy Tip: Wieland ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't a smart last-minute switch for your second pitching spot on FantasyScore, even against a Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim team that has struggled to score runs in the past month. Stacking some of the safer Halos hitters against Wieland is a good daily strategy tonight.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Joe Wieland has been recalled from the minors and will make the start Wednesday, May 6.
Fantasy Tip: Wieland will be a low-priced FantasyScore commodity that should be avoided in his first start Wednesday against the Milwaukee Brewers. However, he could become a matchup play, especially pitching his home games in a pitcher-friendly park. Wieland has a chance to stick in a rotation spot due to the Dodgers' starting pitching injury woes.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) has shut down his throwing program after experiencing pain in his left shoulder when he played catch Sunday, March 22, and he will start the season on the disabled list, according to manager Don Mattingly. Dr. Neal ElAttrache will examine Ryu Monday, March 23. SP Joe Wieland may enter the rotation to replace Ryu to start the year, but the Dodgers are also looking to trade for a starter. The other pitchers being considered to fill in are Ps Carlos Frias and Mike Bolsinger, and both are in minor league camp.
Fantasy Tip: Before the injury, Ryu was an intriguing sleeper pick in the late middle rounds. However, he's now extremely risky, especially since he dealt with left shoulder problems throughout the year in 2014. Stash him late in mixed league drafts. Wieland may be worth a dollar investment in NL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Joe Wieland may be in the starting rotation to begin the 2015 season, with SP Hyun-jin Ryu (shoulder) likely headed for the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: The team has said it would likely look for help elsewhere, considering SP Erik Bedard is already out with a lat strain. But it looks like this job might be Wieland's to lose. It's hard to tell how long he will have a spot, so don't go too crazy in your fantasy drafts. It may be worth an end-of-draft flier in some leagues or an occasional pickup in daily leagues, depending on how he performs.
