Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is unsure if he will return next season even after his $1.4 million option for the 2014 season vested with the team's series win over the Atlanta Braves in the National League Division Series. "When you're put in this situation, the organization basically says, 'We don't know if you can manage or not,'" Mattingly said. "So, that's the position I've been in all season long, so that's not a great position for me as a manager. That's the way it is, that's the way the organization wanted it last year, that's fine." General manager Ned Colletti said the issue will be "resolved very quickly."

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (knee) left the team's game Monday, Sept. 2, with a strained knee. Puig said there are no plans for additional tests, and Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he does not expect Puig to be out for long.
Fantasy Tip: It does not sound like this is a major issue for Puig, but it is something to keep a close eye on in the next few days. Keep an eye on the lineup, and be prepared to get him out if he can't go.

Los Angeles Dodgers RP J.P. Howell and INF/OF Skip Schumaker have been suspended for two games for their aggressive actions during the incidents of the game on Tuesday, June 11, against the Arizona Diamondbacks. RP Ronald Belisario has been suspended for one game for a similar reason. Manager Don Mattingly has been suspended for one game for the actions of his club and his conduct during the incidents. Hitting coach Mark McGwire has been suspended for two games for his conduct during the incidents. Mattingly is scheduled to serve his suspension on Friday, June 14. McGwire will serve his on Friday and Saturday, June 15.
Also, SP Zack Greinke and OF Yasiel Puig were fined undisclosed amounts. All player discipline is subject to appeal.
The organization has also been fined for allowing players who are on the disabled list to enter the field during the incidents. The Dodgers will not be allowed to have players who are on the DL to sit in their dugout for their games throughout this coming weekend. Those players may return to their benches on Monday, June 17.
Fantasy Tip: Phew. Thankfully, for fantasy owners, Greinke and Puig escaped without suspensions. The rest of this is inconsequential for fantasy purposes, essentially.
