Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood (elbow) will have a surgical procedure that the Dodgers are calling an "arthroscopic debridement," and Wood is estimated to need eight weeks of recovery time.
Fantasy Tip: Wood could be available to return for a potential playoff run, but that likely kills off any remaining fantasy value he may have had if you were holding him in deeper leagues. The lefty had a 3.99 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 9.9 K/9 on the season in 10 starts for the Blue.

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Dodgers SPs Clayton Kershaw (back) and Alex Wood (elbow) are each scheduled to throw approximately four innings or 60 pitches during simulated games Saturday, July 16. SP Brett Anderson (back) will throw a simulated game using the same guidelines Tuesday, July 19.
Fantasy Tip: If all goes well for the three southpaws, Kershaw should be back by the end of the month, with Wood and Anderson possibly returning sometime in August. Kershaw should be stashed in all fantasy formats, while Wood and Anderson are worth keeping tabs on in NL-only and cavernous mixed seasonal leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Enrique Hernandez (rib cage) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with left rib cage inflammation Wednesday, June 29. SP Alex Wood (elbow) was also moved to the 60-day DL.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez has seen his playing time reduced drastically, so he can likely be left to the waiver wire now in most formats. Scott Van Slyke and Howie Kendrick are serving as outfield depth in the meantime but are mainly useful in daily play in the right matchups.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood (elbow) has been cleared by the organization's medical staff to begin a throwing program next week. The 25-year-old left-hander recently had some fluid drained from his elbow and received a cortisone shot.
Fantasy Tip: Wood is 1-4 with a 3.99 ERA through 10 starts this season, with 19 walks and 62 strikeouts through 56 1/3 innings. He has been sidelined because of left elbow inflammation since May 31, but is considered to be ahead of schedule with his rehab. Wood should remain stashed in NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues if you can afford the roster space.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Alex Wood (elbow) received his MRI result and it showed he has an elbow impingement requiring approximately four weeks of rest. He landed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 31.
Fantasy Tip: Wood will be replaced by prospect Julio Urias starting Thursday. Avoid Wood in all fantasy leagues for at least a month, but keep him on the roster if you can afford the spot.
Tue, 31 May 2016 15:22:20 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias will return to the major leagues with SP Alex Wood (elbow) going on the disabled list with elbow soreness.
Fantasy Tip: Wood owners are surely disappointed after he allowed two earned runs or fewer in his last four starts prior to his injury. In deep mixed and NL-only leagues he must remain stashed. Urias, the Dodgers' top pitching prospect, had a forgettable debut against the Mets last year but has tons of upside and should be owned in all formats. Just keep in mind that the Blue will limit his innings this year and could move him to a relief role eventually.
