Los Angeles Dodgers SP Carlos Frias pitched 6.0 innings of one-run ball against the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, May 19, mixing in his changeup and curveball with a high-90s fastball. He appears to be forcing the Dodgers to keep him in the rotation, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com's Mark Saxon, by using a four-pitch arsenal. Frias said he is gaining confidence, and Saxon believes the Dodgers would be foolish to not find out what Frias is capable of becoming.
Fantasy Tip: Frias ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is not scheduled to start again until Sunday, May 24, against the San Diego Padres. He is a viable low-priced option in traditional leagues and on FantasyScore, given the pool of midrange choices expected to be available.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Carlos Frias is expected to start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 1.
Fantasy Tip: Through two career starts, Frias has a 10.80 ERA and a 2.10 WHIP, and he allowed a .406/.424/.531 slash line to opposing hitters. He allowed 18 hits over 12 2/3 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma this season, too. Until he strings together a few quality outings with the Dodgers there is no reason to start Frias. With a potential rotation spot, he is worth a speculative add in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, though.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) has shut down his throwing program after experiencing pain in his left shoulder when he played catch Sunday, March 22, and he will start the season on the disabled list, according to manager Don Mattingly. Dr. Neal ElAttrache will examine Ryu Monday, March 23. SP Joe Wieland may enter the rotation to replace Ryu to start the year, but the Dodgers are also looking to trade for a starter. The other pitchers being considered to fill in are Ps Carlos Frias and Mike Bolsinger, and both are in minor league camp.
Fantasy Tip: Before the injury, Ryu was an intriguing sleeper pick in the late middle rounds. However, he's now extremely risky, especially since he dealt with left shoulder problems throughout the year in 2014. Stash him late in mixed league drafts. Wieland may be worth a dollar investment in NL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Carlos Frias became the first pitcher in the modern era to allow 10 hits while recording fewer than three outs in a game. The Dodgers are considering a "bullpen" game the next time SP Hyun-Jin Ryu's (shoulder) place in the rotation comes up, and that could come against the Chicago Cubs Sunday, Sep. 21, with RPs Paco Rodriguez or J.P. Howell starting. Frias' ERA went from 3.91 to 6.58 in the outing.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (elbow) is still listed as the probable pitcher for Thursday, Aug. 21, against the San Diego Padres. He has been dealing with soreness in his elbow. Manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday, Aug. 19, that P Carlos Frias would start Thursday if Greinke is unable to go.
Fantasy Tip: We'll monitor Greinke's status and update you if he is unable to make his start. Daily fantasy owners would be well served not to risk it, as he might be working with restrictions if he can make the start.
