Dodgers | Corey Seager, Yasmani Grandal return

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:14:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager (illness) and C Yasmani Grandal (illness) are both back in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, July 22. Seager is hitting second and Grandal slots in at No. 6 in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Seager missed three games with an illness this week but appears fine now. Get him back into all lineups immediately. The young shortstop is an elite fantasy commodity at his position with a .301 average, 17 home runs and 43 RBI. Grandal's overall .206/.321/.425 line looks bad, but he's come on strong in July with a .317 average, six home runs and nine RBI. Consider adding him if he's out there in two-catcher or NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal dealing with illness

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:08:02 -0700

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (illness) was out Thursday, July 21, due to a stomach virus.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal has a .317-6-9 line this month, and he's a daily consideration when he returns. A.J. Ellis warrants no fantasy consideration in the meantime.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal, Yasiel Puig out

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:55:43 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal and OF Yasiel Puig are out of the lineup Thursday, July 21. C A.J. Ellis is hitting eighth, and OF Andrew Toles is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Toles is hitting .267 in 15 at-bats, and Stephen Strasburg presents a tough matchup. His spot in the order doesn't lend him the upside worth the risk. Ellis isn't worth consideration with his .188 average.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal quieting catcher concerns

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 11:26:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal has five home runs and a 1.270 OPS in July, which has limited the interest of looking outside the organization for a catcher. Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy was of some interest to Los Angeles earlier in the season, but it has waned with Grandal's recent production.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal's a rising fantasy commodity after a slow start to the season, and he is a viable starter in all formats while playing well. Lucroy owners can expect the backstop to be traded, but it likely won't be to the Dodgers.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez gets a day off

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:05:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray on Sunday, July 17. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will replace him in the field and bat cleanup. 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal and OF Andrew Toles are also not starting, and will be replaced by INF Chris Taylor (hitting sixth), C A.J. Ellis (seventh) and newly promoted rookie SS/OF Zach Walters (eighth), respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez remains a very good hitter (.287), but he has only homered twice and driven in 17 runs since the end of May, so he can be benched in most fantasy leagues. The same can be said for Utley, while Grandal emerged as a back-end starting catcher option with a strong first-half finish. None of the today's four replacements need to be considered outside of deep mixed or NL-only formats.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal has huge night

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 23:42:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal was 5-for-5 with three home runs and six RBI against the San Diego Padres on Friday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal, the former Padre, stuck it to his old team with the kind of performance that's usually reserved for video games; the ones that let you know it's time to crank up the difficulty level on MLB The Show. To put it in perspective, Grandal hadn't hit more than three home runs in any of the previous three months -- this gives him five in July. With his low average, Grandal is strictly a power option in NL-only and two-catcher formats.

Dodgers | Chase Utley, Yasmani Grandal out

Thu, 07 Jul 2016 16:06:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres left-handed SP Drew Pomeranz Thursday, July 7. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at the keystone and hitting leadoff, while C A.J. Ellis is doing the catching and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Utley and Grandal get the day off in the tough lefty-lefty matchup. Kendrick contributes modestly across the board, but even in the leadoff spot he's a low-end daily commodity unlikely to fill out the stat sheet. Ellis is at the Mendoza Line (.200) with a homer and 11 RBI and can be avoided everywhere.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig, Yasmani Grandal out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 10:29:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with OF Scott Van Slyke and C A.J. Ellis hitting seventh and eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke is a basement flyer if a lefty were on the mound, but he doesn't hit righties as well. Neither are good options against Kevin Gausman.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal homers in second straight

Mon, 04 Jul 2016 21:41:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal went 1-for-3, including his third solo homer in the last four games, against the Baltimore Orioles on Monday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal's four-game hitting streak has increased his miserable average from .178 to .188, but at least his nine homers and 31 RBI for the season are less unsightly. Given the sad state of the catcher position in fantasy, the 27-year-old Cuban is a starting option in most two-catcher formats and wouldn't need too many 1-for-4 efforts at the plate to force his way into starting consideration in most normal-sized leagues.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sit out

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 15:35:43 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Saturday, July 2, with 2B Howie Kendrick leading off and C A.J. Ellis hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has underwhelmed this year, but he has upside in the leadoff spot against Chad Bettis. Ellis doesn't deserve DFS consideration.
