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.

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.
