Dodgers | Platoon at 2B likely for Dodgers

Tue, 26 Jan 2016 13:58:49 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers 2Bs Chase Utley and Enrique Hernandez are likely to platoon at second base in 2016, with Hernandez mainly starting against left-handers, who he hit .423/.471/.744 against last season. Hernandez played second, shortstop, third base and all three outfield positions last year, so he can also spell other players around the diamond.

Fantasy Tip: While Utley will have the strong side of the platoon at the keystone, Hernandez is the much more attractive fantasy option in deep mixed and NL-only leagues for roster depth. Where Hernandez lacks for playing time at second base, he should be able to make that up elsewhere spelling other starters at other positions, and you can't argue against his positional versatility.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick not likely to return

Wed, 30 Dec 2015 20:25:23 -0800

Free-agent 2B Howie Kendrick (Dodgers) is unlikely to return to the Los Angeles Dodgers. General manager Farhan Zaidi said Wednesday, Dec. 30, that "the way things are right now, we feel we're pretty set at second base with (2B Chase Utley) and (2B/OF Enrique Hernandez)."

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick might get a look from an NL West rival of the Dodgers, as the Arizona Diamondbacks have put out feelers.

Dodgers | Chase Utley to play every day?

Wed, 09 Dec 2015 15:15:03 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley could be the Dodgers' everyday second baseman next year despite hitting a career-low .212 last year with a career-worst .629 OPS. Utley was signed to a $7 million deal for the 2016 season, and the Dodgers suggested he could play second, third and first base. Utley could seize the everyday keystone job since Los Angeles doesn't have any other obvious candidates at the position. The in-house candidates are 2B Jose Peraza and OF Enrique Hernandez, and the Dodgers might want to keep Hernandez in a utility role.

Fantasy Tip: Utley isn't ruling it out, but let's be realistic. He's nearing the end of his career and the Dodgers will want to keep him as healthy as possible. That probably means some type of utility role while switching off with Peraza and/or Hernandez at the keystone. Utley's production has fallen off a cliff. While it might not be as bad as last year, he won't be applying for a roster spot in shallow mixed leagues anytime soon.

Dodgers | LA interested in re-signing Chase Utley

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:02:17 -0800

The Los Angeles Dodgers are interested in re-signing 2B Chase Utley to be a left-handed hitting option at second and third base. OF Enrique Hernandez and 2B Jose Peraza are the leading options at second base if 2B Howie Kendrick leaves in free agency.

Fantasy Tip: At age 37 next year, Utley will never be an everyday player again, but he can be useful for a team in certain matchups as a guy off the bench. He hit just .202 with three home runs in 34 games for the Dodgers last year. Only single-universe managers should have any interest in Utley next year.

Dodgers | Enrique Hernandez undergoes surgery

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 18:50:20 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Enrique Hernandez (shoulder) underwent minor arthroscopic shoulder surgery Wednesday, Nov. 4. He will begin physical therapy next week and is expected to be completely healthy when spring training camp opens.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez hit .307 in a super-utility role for the Dodgers last season, including a .423 mark versus left-handed pitching, while playing every position except first base, catcher and pitcher. He could compete for regular playing time at second base or in center field next year and could be of interest to owners in NL-only fantasy leagues.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson sitting Game 3

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 13:35:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup Monday, Oct. 12. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in center field and batting eighth in Game 3 of the National League Division Series against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) reached base three times in Game 2 Saturday, Oct. 10, and he has been a fantasy spark plug whenever called upon this season. FantasyScore players should view Hernandez as a potential value play for contests Monday. Make sure to avoid Pederson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap).

Dodgers | Joc Pederson not playing

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 13:34:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the Game 2 lineup Saturday, Oct. 10, against the New York Mets. OF Enrique Hernandez is playing center field and batting eighth in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is a cheap play if you want to spend more at other positions, but don't expect a lot from him against Noah Syndergaard.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sit out

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 16:17:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson and OF Andre Ethier are out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, against a left-handed starter. OF Enrique Hernandez is leading off, and OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a great start against lefty Robbie Erlin as he has a .427-4-16 split against lefties. Ruggiano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hits lefties to a .309-5-11 clip this year, and he's a low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson not in lineup Friday

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 17:07:35 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Casey Kelly Friday, Oct. 2. OF Enrique Hernandez will bat eighth and play center field.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is batting .362 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 94 at-bats since the All-Star break. He's worthy of consideration as a FantasyScore value play this evening.

Dodgers | No Joc Pederson Thursday

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 10:45:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Oct. 1. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in center field and is batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is hitting .318 (61-for-192) on the year with seven home runs and 22 RBI and is worth considering as a sleeper in one of your outfield spots when he draws into the lineup. However, the one knock today is that his low lineup spot will limit his ceiling.
