Dodgers | Trayce Thompson to DL

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 14:11:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 16, with lower back irritation.

Fantasy Tip: Joc Pederson (shoulder) could return Tuesday, and he'd take Thompson's spot. Andrew Toles is starting in center and hitting eighth today. He's 3-for-8 (.375) in his short stint thus far and may be worth the basement flyer against Archie Bradley.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson could land on DL

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 11:42:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson (back) could land on the disabled list because of lower back irritation. According to manager Dave Roberts, Thompson felt a tweak in his side while swinging during the game against the San Diego Padres Sunday, July 10. "The only thing it affects is his swing," Roberts said. "We'd like to not go there. But it's still a possibility."

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is just 5-for-35 (.143) with 13 strikeouts at the plate this month. He should be avoided in daily fantasy games but is worth stashing in NL-only seasonal leagues if a DL stint is deemed necessary.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson experiencing side pain

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 17:41:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson (side) is continuing to experience pain in his side after taking an awkward swing Sunday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson's injury is not considered to be serious. He has struggled mightily over the past four weeks, batting just .149 with two home runs and six RBI in 74 at-bats and should be avoided in daily fantasy games for the foreseeable future.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sitting out

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 15:20:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and OF Trayce Thompson are not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Friday, July 15. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in center field and is batting sixth. SS Chris Taylor will start at second base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke is hitting .278 with one home run and four RBI against left-handed pitchers in 18 at-bats this season but is not the best option for owners. Taylor is hitting only .211 this season and should be avoided in all leagues.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson draws a start Sunday

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 12:23:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson is back in the lineup for the first time in three games Sunday, July 10, against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich. Thompson will bat sixth and start in center field, while OF Scott Van Slyke will bump 2B/OF Howie Kendrick from left field to second base and hit eighth. Kendrick will replace 2B Chase Utley, who will get the day off, atop the order.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson appears to be in a platoon with Andrew Toles at the moment as a result of his long slump and may struggle for playing time once Joc Pederson returns from injury. Van Slyke has 15 strikeouts and only one homer in 55 at-bats the season and hasn't exactly done much with the little playing time he has received. Kendrick is hitting .303 in July and .302 for the season against left-handers, making him the lone decent option from this group to use in fantasy today.

Dodgers | Andrew Toles draws second straight start

Sat, 09 Jul 2016 15:38:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andrew Toles is in the lineup batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Luis Perdomo and will play center field for the second straight night in place of struggling OF Trayce Thompson on Saturday, July 9.

Fantasy Tip: Toles went 1-for-4 with a double in his major-league debut on Friday and displayed a ton of ability to swipe bags in the minors, but he is obviously far too unproven to use in fantasy quite yet. Thompson could be in danger of losing his starting job once Joc Pederson returns from a shoulder injury, although he hasn't been cleared to swing a bat yet.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson resting Friday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 15:19:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 8. OF Andrew Toles was called up from the minors and is starting in center field and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner.

Fantasy Tip: It looks to be just a normal day off for Thompson tonight. Toles, a former third-round pick of the Rays, started the year at Class A Rancho Cucamonga and made it all the way to Class AAA Oklahoma City. He hit a combined .330 with six home runs, 37 RBI and 23 steals in the minors. Power isn't his game, but he could be useful in NL-only leagues for his speed depending on how much he plays and how long he sticks around.

Dodgers | Justin Turner takes a seat

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 15:37:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, July 5. SS Chris Taylor is at the hot corner and is hitting eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Chris Tillman. Also, OF Trayce Thompson moves up to hit third in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Taylor doesn't have many offensive skills and is hitting just .200 (2-for-10). He's never hit a home run in 92 career major league games. Avoid him in all formats. Thompson hasn't hit for average (.237) but has valuable pop (13 home runs, 32 RBI) and is a great value play in DFS this evening in the middle of the order.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson remains absent Friday

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 15:33:41 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson (shoulder) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, July 1. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting in left field again and is hitting fifth, with OF Trayce Thompson starting in center field against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson has been one of the more productive hitters for the Dodgers this year. He could be in line for a DL stint, so stay tuned on his progress. Kendrick has seen regular playing time recently, but Thompson has the higher ceiling with more power despite fading a bit of late.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson busts out of slump

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 17:49:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson went 2-for-5 with his 12th home run of the season Thursday, June 30, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He finished with one run scored and two RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson was a putrid 2-for-26 since June 20, so this was an important performance to get him back on track. The former second-round draft pick had a nice run going for awhile a few weeks ago, and while he's fallen far off that pace, he can still be useful in some deep fantasy formats. At the very least, he's capable of being a cheap source for power.
