Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez in three-hole

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 06:56:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is hitting third Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: A-Gone is hitting .327 this month with 10 RBI. He is 4-for-9 (.444) off of Stephen Strasburg in his career. He's worth a midrange play in DFS, but the power has not been there this season with seven homers.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez gets a day off

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 12:05:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Robbie Ray on Sunday, July 17. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will replace him in the field and bat cleanup. 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal and OF Andrew Toles are also not starting, and will be replaced by INF Chris Taylor (hitting sixth), C A.J. Ellis (seventh) and newly promoted rookie SS/OF Zach Walters (eighth), respectively.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez remains a very good hitter (.287), but he has only homered twice and driven in 17 runs since the end of May, so he can be benched in most fantasy leagues. The same can be said for Utley, while Grandal emerged as a back-end starting catcher option with a strong first-half finish. None of the today's four replacements need to be considered outside of deep mixed or NL-only formats.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez ends home run drought

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 17:10:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez homered for the first time in 25 games, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 3-1 win over the San Diego Padres Sunday, July 10.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has remained a must-start fantasy option despite the power outage. He has five multi-hit efforts in his last six games, and he is hitting .455 over his last 12 games.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez owns Cashner

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 14:24:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez has a .344/.432/.750 slash line with four home runs in his career against San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner, who he faces Friday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: At 34 years of age, A-Gon is beginning to show signs of fading, mainly in the power department (six home runs). Otherwise, he's been respectable with a .281/.361/.391 slash line as a low-end fantasy first baseman. Look to get him in all starting lineups this evening because of his excellent history against Cashner.

Wed, 29 Jun 2016 21:43:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez was ejected after striking out in the fourth inning on Wednesday, June 29. He finished 0-for-1.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez didn't like a call on a check swing and let the third base umpire know about it, which resulted in his fifth career ejection. Expect him to be back in the lineup tomorrow.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez smacks three hits

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 21:37:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-3 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday, June 28. He also walked and was hit by a pitch.

Fantasy Tip: After back-to-back days off, Gonzalez reached base all five times he came to the plate on Tuesday night. Hopefully that gets the veteran first baseman going, as even with his big night Gonzalez is posting a weak .216-1-7 line this month. Keep him reserved until he strings together some good performances.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sought extra day off

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 16:23:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (rest) requested an extra day off this past weekend Sunday, June 26, opposite the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was always supposed to be out of the lineup Monday, June 27, but after an 0-for-3 performance on Saturday, June 25, Gonzalez went to manager Dave Roberts with the idea of having back-to-back off days, thinking it would be better for him mentally.

Fantasy Tip: It's understandable A-Gon would want time off to clear his head, as he's struggled mightily in June to the tune of a .181 batting average, while having just one home run and six runs driven in for the month as well in 83 at-bats. With a .261 average, six homers and 33 RBI on the year, Gonzalez is on pace for career lows across the board over a full season. Considering he first came up in 2004 with the Texas Rangers, that's really saying something.

Dodgers | Monday Dodgers lineup light

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 07:04:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, 2B Chase Utley, OF Joc Pederson and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Monday, June 27. OF Enrique Hernandez is leading off, OF Trayce Thompson is hitting third, 1B Scott Van Slyke is hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis hit seventh and SS Chris Taylor hits eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has struggled this month, but he has upside in the three-hole against Francisco Liriano. Hernandez and Van Slyke are worth low-end consideration against the lefty. Ellis and Taylor don't move the needle much.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez won't play Monday

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 05:41:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez, who is hitting .181 in 23 June games, will be out of the lineup Monday, June 27. Manager Dave Roberts is giving Gonzalez a "mental break" from regular duty.

Fantasy Tip: The team is unlikely to sour on Gonzalez like it did on Carl Crawford earlier this month, but keep Gonzalez off your active roster until he shows signs of turning that bat around.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out Sunday

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 13:52:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 26. 1B Scott Van Slyke is in the lineup and batting eighth against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Chad Kuhl.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off, as Gonzalez hasn't been out of the starting lineup all week. Van Slyke has minimal at-bats and low fantasy value as a result, and it is best to stay away.
