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.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like a normal day off for Gordon against a left-handed pitcher. Make sure he's not in your daily lineups this evening.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (knee), OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) and C A.J. Ellis (knee) will not be in the lineup Saturday, Aug. 2, but manager Don Mattingly said all three players could pinch hit in an emergency situation. 2B Justin Turner will make his first start of the year at first base in place of Gonzalez, 1B Scott Van Slyke will replace Puig in the outfield, and C Drew Butera will start for Ellis.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez, Puig and Ellis should all be considered day-to-day at this point, but make sure to remove all three from daily lineups.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (calf) and 2B Justin Turner (hamstring) both left in the second inning Saturday, June 28. Turner is expected to go on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring, and SS Carlos Triunfel is expected to be recalled to take his place. The extent of Ramirez' injury is not yet known.
Fantasy Tip: Both players just returned from injuries, but if there is a silver lining, it is the fact that a trip to the DL wasn't immediately talked about for Ramirez. Consider him day-to-day at this point.
