Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:36:36 -0700

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig still out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:53:58 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Puig's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) return to the lineup will be delayed for at least one more day, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Andre Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig expected back Friday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:27:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is expected to return to the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Friday, April 17, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: It is worth double-checking Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) does in fact return Friday, but otherwise return him to your lineups with confidence. Opposing pitcher Kyle Kendrick doesn't evoke any matchup concerns, either.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out again

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 14:38:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against the Seattle Mariners Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) from your lineups Wednesday. He is dealing with a minor hamstring ailment, but it is still worth checking back for updates on the severity of Puig's injury and when he'll return. Andre Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could be worthy of starting in FantasyScore contests Wednesday as a low-priced flier.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out as precaution

Tue, 14 Apr 2015 16:13:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is out of the lineup as a precaution Tuesday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: Puig should be good to go tomorrow after sitting out tonight. In his place, Andre Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will receive the start. Ethier doesn't move the fantasy needle much these days, but he might be a sneaky sleeper play against Colorado Rockies starter Christian Bergman Tuesday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig uncertain for Tuesday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 22:40:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (leg) suffered an apparent leg injury in the game Monday, April 13, against the Seattle Mariners. Manager Don Mattingly said after the game he was "not sure" if Puig would play Tuesday, April 14.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players would be wise to avoid Puig at $5,300 (or 10.6% of cap) until his situation becomes a bit more clear. Give him a game to prove his health before shelling out over 10 percent of your cap.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig not in lineup

Sat, 11 Apr 2015 14:41:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is not in the starting lineup Saturday, April 11. OF Andre Ethier will take his place in right field.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has struggled so far this season but should return to the lineup Sunday, April 12. Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has only seen a handful of at bats this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig returns to lineup

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 15:59:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (neck) is in the starting lineup Friday, April 3.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) returning to the lineup erases any injury concern. The 24-year-old outfielder has been a streaky hitter in the past, but with 1072 plate appearances at the highest level, 2015 projects to be a breakout season. His five home runs and 13 RBI this spring are nice to see leading into the year, too. When Puig is in a groove, he can be counted on as a lineup building block for FantasyScore players.
