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.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed SS Hanley Ramirez (oblique) on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained right oblique. The move is retroactive to Saturday, Aug. 9. In a corresponding move, 2B Darwin Barney was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez could end up missing more than the minimum 15 days. Miguel Rojas is expected to get the bulk of the playing time at shortstop while Ramirez is sidelined but should only be considered in NL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is not in the lineup Friday, July 11, due to an arthritic shoulder. In his place is SS Miguel Rojas.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez just can't seem to get himself back to full health. His shoulder injury doesn't seem to be too serious, though, and he'll have the All-Star break to rest up. Remove him from your daily lineups.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Miguel Rojas (finger) is dealing with a split fingernail on his throwing hand but thinks he can play Thursday, July 3.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (calf) is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, July 1.
Fantasy Tip: Begin considering short-term options to replace Ramirez if he goes on the disabled list. Miguel Rojas has been playing in Ramirez's absence and holds NL-only value as long as he is starting in a solid Dodgers' lineup. Ramirez only has three plate appearances since Monday, June 23, which is tough for fantasy owners, because he is taking up valuable roster space without any production.

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the lineup once again Wednesday, June 25. Miguel Rojas is starting in his place.
Fantasy Tip: The A/C joint continues to give him issues, and he could be out at least the next few days. Prep for a long absence, though -- maybe a DL stint? Rojas is NL-only filler that probably warrants only desperation ownership if Ramirez lands on the DL.
