Dodgers | Julio Urias sent to minors

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:48:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias was optioned to Class AAA Oklahoma City Friday, July 22. C Austin Barnes was recalled in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers are handling the 19-year-old southpaw with kid gloves, and for good reason. He's shown flashes in his nine starts this year but has a 4.69 ERA and 1.51 WHIP despite fanning 48 in 40 1/3 innings. He could come up for another spot start down the road in the second half or be used out of the bullpen, but his value in seasonal leagues is limited from here on out. He should remain stashed in all dynasty formats, though. Barnes should be ignored, as he'll back up Yasmani Grandal and A.J. Ellis.

Dodgers | Will Venable joins Dodgers

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:15:12 -0700

Free-agent OF Will Venable (Phillies) signed an undisclosed deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday, June 14. In a corresponding move, C Austin Barnes was optioned to Class AAA Oklahoma City.

Fantasy Tip: The Blue may have use for Venable as part of a platoon in left field between Howie Kendrick and Scott Van Slyke now that Carl Crawford is no longer with the club. Venable's best asset is his speed, but he likely won't see enough playing time to be considered outside of deep NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Four Dodgers regulars sitting out

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 15:27:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, SS Corey Seager, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Wednesday, June 8. C Austin Barnes is starting at second base and is hitting eighth, OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at shortstop and is batting leadoff, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and hitting cleanup and C A.J. Ellis is doing the catching and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers typically sit a handful of their lefty hitters against southpaws. After Thompson's walkoff blast last night, he now has 10 homers and 22 RBI on the year and has carved out an everyday role. He's a great player to have in daily lineups this evening. Hernandez's daily value soars while hitting leadoff, too, and he's a fine value play. Barnes and Ellis are light-hitting catchers that are low-end DFS clicks.
