Dodgers | Yasiel Puig hitless in return to lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:58:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) returned to the starting lineup and went 0-for-2 with three walks against the Miami Marlins Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have derailed Puig's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) season, and he hasn't been able to stay on the field long enough to develop much of a rhythm. He offers plenty of upside, but it is best to wait until he strings together a few solid games before paying his hefty salary at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig back in the lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:43:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) is in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena Sunday, June 28, and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) returns to the lineup after not starting any of the last four games with a hand injury. Puig is a risky option on FantasyScore because of the injury but could be a solid option since he is hitting .323 this month.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig remains sidelined

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:23:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Saturday, June 27. OF Andre Ethier, who normally plays left field, will bat fifth and play right field. OF Enrique Hernandez will get the start in left field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown when Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will be able to return to action. Following a hot start to the season, Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is only batting .197 during the month of June and should be avoided in FantasyScore until he turns things around. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .256 with three homers and eight RBIs in 86 at-bats and is a viable option for owners who need salary cap relief.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig remains out

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:16:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Alex Guerrero is starting in left field and batting sixth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) continues to miss time because a callous on his hand opened up, and it is painful for him to swing. While not a serious injury, it continues to keep him out of the lineup and could linger. Expect him back sooner than later, though. Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was off to a torrid start this season, but he is currently mired in a 6-for-36 slump dating back to Thursday, June 4. FantasyScore players should view him as a high-risk, high-reward option Friday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig moved into five-hole

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:44:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is batting fifth against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) had been in the leadoff spot the past five games, but he is likely best suited in a position to drive in runs. His fantasy value is higher in that role, too. Puig currently has a .333/.391/.524 slash line with eight runs, a home run and six RBI over 16 games since returning from injury, and he is a strong play in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig loves to hit at Wrigley Field

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:16:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig has hit .486 with six extra-base hits and 13 runs scored through nine career games at Wrigley Field. With a hit Wednesday, June 24, he would join Pittsburgh Pirates 2B Neil Walker and retired OF Ray Lankford as the only players in the last four decades to hit safely in each of their first 10 games at Wrigley.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is also sporting a .333/.391/.524 slash line with eight runs, a home run and six RBI over his 16 games since returning from injury. He is a solid FantasyScore play while hitting well, and especially in favorable matchups.

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 17:10:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) has his left hand heavily taped Tuesday, June 23, against the Chicago Cubs. Puig is trying to protect a large patch of raw skin on his palm where he tore a callus.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore owners should wait to see how Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) fares Tuesday. Owners may need to avoid Puig until his hand is no longer taped.
