Dodgers | Mike Bolsinger rocked in ND

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 23:16:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger allowed five earned runs, nine hits and two walks with one strikeout over 2 2/3 innings in a no-decision Saturday, June 18, against the Milwaukee Brewers. He threw just 44 of his 73 pitches for strikes as his ERA ballooned to 6.83.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger cannot be trusted in anything but the deepest of NL-only fantasy leagues. He faced a rather favorable matchup in this one and he failed miserably.

Dodgers | Ross Stripling sent down

Mon, 23 May 2016 15:48:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Ross Stripling was optioned to Class AAA Oklahoma City Monday, May 23. SP Mike Bolsinger and RP Luis Avilan were recalled from Oklahoma City in corresponding moves.

Fantasy Tip: Stripling was sporting a 4.53 ERA and struck out a mediocre 6.7 hitters per nine innings for the Dodgers in eight starts this year. He was only rosterable in cavernous mixed and NL leagues for depth. Bolsinger did strike out just over eight hitters per nine last year but allowed three runs in only 4 1/3 frames in one start this year. He can be ignored in all mixed leagues for now.

Dodgers | Mike Bolsinger demoted to Class AAA

Thu, 19 May 2016 14:58:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger was optioned to Class AAA Oklahoma City Thursday, May 19. In a corresponding move, RP Chin-hui Tsao was recalled.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger pitched well for Los Angeles last season (3.62 ERA and 8.1 K/9 through 21 starts), but he didn't have a strong first start Wednesday, May 18. It was expected the Dodgers were going to go with a six-man rotation, and they still may, which would make Bolsinger a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only setups. Tsao isn't a fantasy option at this point.

Dodgers | Mike Bolsinger returning Wednesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:57:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger (oblique) will be activated from the disabled list to start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Wednesday, May 17, and temporarily give the Dodgers a six-man rotation. Bolsinger had a 2.25 ERA in two starts for Class AAA Oklahoma City on his rehab assignment. A solid start from Bolsinger could trigger a competition with SP Ross Stripling for the fifth spot, at least until SPs Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) and Brandon McCarthy (elbow) are ready.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger's fantasy value is limited to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, especially since he's not guaranteed a rotation spot past his start Wednesday. The 28-year-old posted a 6-6 record and 3.62 ERA in 2015 while fanning 8.1 per nine innings. If he wins a spot over Stripling and pitches well, those in deeper mixed leagues could give him a shot as a matchup play.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu close to rehab assignment

Fri, 06 May 2016 14:26:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SPs Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) and Mike Bolsinger (oblique) could go on a rehab assignment in the next week or two, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: It's good news for the Dodgers, who could use the rotation help badly. Ryu should remain stashed in the majority of deep mixed and NL-only leagues, and those in shallower formats should keep an eye on his progress. Ross Stripling is likely the odd-man out when Ryu is ready to rejoin the rotation.

Dodgers | LA Dodgers send several players to DL

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 13:13:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (leg) was among a number of players placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 3. Joining him were SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder), SP Brandon McCarthy (elbow), 2B Howie Kendrick (calf), INF Alex Guerrero (knee), C Yasmani Grandal (forearm), SP Brett Anderson (back), SP Mike Bolsinger (oblique) and RP Josh Ravin (wrist).

Fantasy Tip: Los Angeles' pitching depth figures to be tested right off the bat, as Ryi is expected to be out another month while McCarthy and Anderson may not return until the second half. Ethier's absence should make Carl Crawford a full-time player again until around June, making the ex-Tampa Bay Ray standout a fine under-the-radar fantasy option. The other notable name here is Grandal, who should be a serviceable catcher in fantasy if he is healthy. He is expected back in mid-April.

Dodgers | Mike Bolsinger won't be ready

Tue, 22 Mar 2016 15:19:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger (oblique) won't be ready for the start of the season, according to team president Andrew Friedman.

Fantasy Tip: There must be some kind of curse concerning the back-end of the Dodgers rotation this year, as Bolsinger is just the latest injury casualty. Nonetheless, that's arguably a blessing in disguise for LA, as despite notable progress last season in his sophomore campaign, Bolsinger is a below-average pitcher with a a very low ceiling. He was struggling in the second half of 2015 anyway, and probably wouldn't hold down a spot on the staff in the long term. With him out of the picture for now, Brandon Beachy or Carlos Frias will step up and assume the fifth slot.

Dodgers | Mike Bolsinger is much improved

Mon, 21 Mar 2016 20:57:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger (side) was improved Monday, March 21, as he works his way back from a side injury. He appears to be the team's choice to serve as the fifth starter, which would mean he would make his first regular season appearance April 8.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger appears to be in line to serve as the No. 5 in L.A., but his fantasy appeal is limited to deeper NL-only formats. If he is not ready for the regular season it would be Zach Lee getting the nod.
