Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out of the lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:52:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Carl Crawford draws into the lineup and is batting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) pulled up abruptly after running out an infield single Thursday, Aug. 27, and it is believed he aggravated his right hamstring injury. Check back for updates, and while it isn't time to make hasty roster decisions, looking for potential replacements isn't a bad idea. Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) stands as a viable value play at FantasyScore Friday, and he projects to see an uptick in playing time for the duration of Puig's absence.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig remains sidelined

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:19:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Friday, Aug. 21. OF Carl Crawford is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers.

Fantasy Tip: While Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) won't run nearly as much as he did earlier in his career when he was healthier, he can still be useful against right-handed pitchers. He's batting .293 (22-for-75) with both of his homers and all 10 of his RBI against righties this year. Not a bad option as a value selection tonight.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out with hamstring injury

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:24:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug 19, against the Oakland Athletics. Puig left the game Tuesday, Aug. 18, with tightness in his right hamstring. OF Carl Crawford will play left field and bat second against A's SP Jesse Chavez.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is batting .800 in his last 10 at-bats and .371 with a home run and three stolen bases the last month. He is a strong matchup play at an affordable price on FantasyScore and should be the primary beneficiary in yearly leagues if Puig is placed on the disabled list.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig has hamstring injury

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:04:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) left the game early with tightness in his right hamstring Tuesday, Aug. 18, and he's scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Wednesday, Aug. 19. His right leg was wrapped in ice after the game, but he didn't think it was as severe as his last hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list. Puig missed 38 games earlier this year with a strained left hamstring. OF Carl Crawford replaced Puig last night, and he would probably become an everyday outfielder if Puig misses extended time again.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as though Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will at least miss a few days, so be prepared to avoid him on FantasyScore. Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has hit well in limited duty this year and would be worth adding in deep mixed leagues if he becomes an everyday player.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out against lefty

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 15:58:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 15, with OF Carl Crawford hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: CC ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is in there against lefty David Holmberg. While Crawford is left-handed as well, he's hitting .429 this month. It's a shot in the dark, but we're in favor of starting him on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford leading off vs. Nats

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 15:39:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is leading off against Washington Nationals SP Jordan Zimmermann Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Setting the table for the Dodgers, Crawford ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) presents nice upside for his cap hit. He has just 77 plate appearances this season, though, so there isn't a lot to draw from his numbers, especially with only three starts in August. FantasyScore players should view him as a potential low-priced flier Wednesday.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford to see more time

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 11:24:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford received the start in left field Thursday, Aug. 6, and manager Don Mattingly said Crawford will start to see increased playing time. "I want to try to get him in at least once a series, get him to be part of the mix," said Mattingly. "We know going forward guys need days here and there." OF Yasiel Puig took the day off Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: The increase in playing time for Crawford ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) probably won't be substantial enough for him to be owned in shallow mixed leagues, however. He could become a very nice value pick on FantasyScore, though, if he gets enough at-bats and gets hot against certain right-handed pitchers.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out Thursday

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 07:52:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is out of the lineup Thursday, Aug. 6, with OF Carl Crawford hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has a paltry .219-1-4 line on the season and isn't worth the start on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford playing Sunday

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 12:12:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, batting sixth against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) is in the starting lineup for the first time this week, and his .308 average at Dodger Stadium may be part of the reason why.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig sits

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:42:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with OF Carl Crawford hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: CC ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has the tall task of facing Matt Harvey and he's not a real good buy on FantasyScore.
