From -- thru  --


Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sitting vs. Giants

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 16:35:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. C Austin Barnes draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has been battling a bad back, so he may play sparingly over the final regular season games. Check back for updates on his status. Barnes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players Wednesday. He only have 32 plate appearances in the majors.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sitting vs. Colorado

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:00:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16. C Austin Barnes draws into the lineup and is batting first against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. The veteran has a .704 OPS over his past 24 games, so a breather against a southpaw makes sense. Barnes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Dodgers | Enrique Hernandez lands on DL

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:45:47 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed OF Enrique Hernandez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 31, due to a strained left hamstring. The team recalled C Austin Barnes from the minors to serve as a third catcher.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is expected to be sidelined at least until the end of September. Joc Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will serve as the club's regular center field for the next couple of weeks, so FantasyScore owners will likely find him to be a mid-level bargain.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal remains out

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:00:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (face) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Tuesday, July 21. C Austin Barnes will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is still dealing with his injury but should be able to return soon. Barnes has gone 3-for-9 since being recalled from the team but is not a great fantasy option at this point.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal out vs. Braves

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:51:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels C Yasmani Grandal (undisclosed) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 20. C Austin Barnes is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) left the game Sunday, July 19, after taking a ball off of his mask. Expect an update on his status soon. Barnes has shown nice contact skills in the minors, but with just six plate appearances at the major league level, he is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Monday.

Dodgers | Austin Barnes catching Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:57:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Austin Barnes is making his major league debut against the San Diego Padres Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes was promoted from the minors when Yasmani Grandal was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Despite getting the start behind the plate today, expect A.J. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) to get most of the playing time while Grandal is sidelined.
