Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw unlikely to go on short rest

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 09:23:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw is unlikely to pitch on short rest if necessary in Game 4 of the division series against the New York Mets under the new front office led by president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman. The Dodgers haven't committed to a Game 4 starter but would decide between Kershaw on short rest or SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) becomes an extremely risky FantasyScore pick as a sleeper for your second pitching spot since it's still up in the air that he'll be included in the division series rotation. Pay up for Kershaw ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) as your ace and take your chances.

Padres | Cory Spangenberg not in lineup

Sat, 05 Sep 2015 17:01:45 -0700

San Diego Padres 2B Cory Spangenberg is not in the lineup against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood Saturday, Sept. 5. SS Clint Barmes is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Barmes ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting just .251 with three homers in 88 games this year, and you should look elsewhere for cap relief at FantasyScore.

Cubs | Kyle Schwarber out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 14:56:45 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Kyle Schwarber is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Matt Szczur is hitting sixth against Cubs SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Schwarber ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) is mainly out due to the left vs. left matchup, but a .160 batting average in the past week is another solid reason to sit Schwarber. Szczur is hitting .226 in the past week and really has little fantasy value.

Cubs | Chris Coghlan not starting Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 14:46:22 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Coghlan is not starting the Sunday, Aug. 30, game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. OF Chris Denorfia is in right field and hitting second against Cubs SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Coghlan ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is hitting .158 in the past seven days, so with the left vs. left matchup it is an appropriate time to sit him. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has four hits in five at-bats against Wood and may be worth the small FantasyScore price.

Dodgers | Alex Wood suffers loss

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 18:56:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood (8-8) allowed three runs on five hits over 5 2/3 innings in a loss to the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, Aug. 19, with three walks and one strikeout.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers fell to 1-3 in games started by Wood ($6,800, 13.6% of cap), although he has limited the opposition to four or fewer runs in each of those outings. He will make his next start against the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, Aug. 27.

Dodgers | Alex Wood to start Wednesday

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 20:13:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood will start Wednesday, Aug. 19, against the Oakland Athletics with the team skipping SP Mat Latos in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) is a solid FantasyScore option, especially on the road, going 5-4 with a 3.16 ERA in 15 road appearances with a 3-3 record and 4.89 ERA in eight home outings.

Dodgers | Alex Wood loses in debut with Dodgers

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 20:30:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood allowed four runs on eight hits and and two walks while striking out eight through 6 2/3 innings during the Dodgers' 6-2 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday, Aug. 4.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) had allowed a single run through six innings, but the Phillies finally got to him in the seventh, and he was pulled with the bases loaded. Phillies 3B Maikel Franco hit a grand slam to up his earned run total to four. FantasyScore players should continue to find sneaky value with Wood going forward, and he should be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues.

Cubs | Dodgers moving Alex Wood to the Cubs?

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:11:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood is being included in trade negotiations with the Chicago Cubs, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: This would be a shocking move, as Wood just landed with Los Angeles Thursday, July 30. Continue to check back for updates, but regardless of whether Wood stays with the Dodgers or is dealt to the Cubs, it should be viewed as an upgrade on starting for the Braves.

Marlins | Miami adds prospects in blockbuster

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:32:28 -0700

The Miami Marlins acquired SP Kevin Guzman, SP Jeff Brigham and RP Victor Araujo as part of the a three-way trade with the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers Thursday, July 30. The Dodgers acquired SP Alex Wood, SP Mat Latos, 1B Michael Morse, RP Jim Johnson, RP Luis Avilan, 2B Jose Peraza and SP Bronson Arroyo, and the Braves acquired 2B Hector Olivera, RP Paco Rodriguez, SP Zachary Bird and a draft choice.

Fantasy Tip: This was strictly a salary dump for the Marlins. With Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) gone, Justin Bour ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should continue to receive the majority of at-bats at first base. It is unknown who will join the starting rotation, and it is unlikely the Marlins are finished their roster makeover. Stay tuned for updates.
