The Los Angeles Dodgers activated SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 4, and placed SP Chris Capuano (forearm) on the 15-day DL in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Get Ramirez back into your lineups. Luis Cruz will be pushed back to third base, but he could be part of a platoon with Jerry Hairston Jr. or Nick Punto. Capuano will head to the DL for the second time this year. Stephen Fife could remain in the rotation for the time being after a nice outing against the San Diego Padres last night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed OF Matt Kemp (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Thursday, May 30. RP Stephen Fife (shoulder) was activated from the DL and optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque, and C Tim Federowicz was recalled from Albuquerque.
Fantasy Tip: Kemp has been a major disappointment for his fantasy owners. He missed two months last year with a hamstring ailment, and his second-half power and speed suffered. This hamstring injury isn't believed to be as serious, but it could linger if he's not careful.
Scott Van Slyke will reap the benefits of more frequent playing time with Kemp out, making him more intriguing in deep mixed affairs. Skip Schumaker and Jerry Hairston Jr. might be mixed in at center field, too. Federowicz could be an addition to NL-only rosters that start two catchers. Don't rule out the Dodgers getting desperate and summoning Joc Pederson or Yasiel Puig, either. Pederson wasn't in the lineup at Double-A Chattanooga tonight, meaning a call-up could be imminent.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have optioned SS Dee Gordon to Triple-A Albuquerque. In a corresponding move, the team activated OF Jerry Hairston Jr. (knee) from the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Gordon being sent down could indicate Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) could be close to returning. Nick Punto and Luis Cruz could see time at shortstop until Ramirez returns. Neither should be considered in mixed leagues.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will place OF/INF Jerry Hairston Jr. (groin) on the disabled list Tuesday, May 7, and INF Elian Herrera has been recalled from the minors to take his spot on the roster.
Fantasy Tip: Hairston was mainly being used as a super utility player with the rash of injuries that the Dodgers have suffered this year. Herrera will be used in a similar fashion but will only be useful in deep NL-only fantasy leagues.
