Dodgers | Zack Greinke wins fifth straight

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 04:31:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke won his fifth straight start Friday, July 31, as he allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings in a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9.800, 19.6% of cap) leads the majors with a 1.41 ERA and has a 23-5 home record at Dodger Stadium. He is a must start in all fantasy formats, but Greinke is particularly deadly at home.

Dodgers | Kershaw scratched, Greinke starting

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:15:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (hip) will not start Friday, July 31. Instead, SP Zack Greinke will start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday. Kershaw will pitch against the Angels Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and ensure Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) is in your starting lineups in seasonal leagues. At FantasyScore, Greinke should be viewed as a top-tier arm with risk. The Angels boast a capable offense, and Greinke is the most expensive player in the entire player pool. Still, Greinke should be on your radar.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke's shutout streak ends

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 00:06:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke saw his shutout streak end at 45 2/3 innings Sunday, July 26, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) has been the epitome of success for the Dodgers, as he came within striking distance of Orel Hershiser's scoreless innings streak. Greinke is a lock for FantasyScore lineups or pretty much any lineup.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke tabbed for Sunday

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 04:59:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke will start against the New York Mets Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: The only concern for Greinke ($9,800, 19.8% of cap) is starting opposite fellow ace Jacob deGrom ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) Sunday. Otherwise, he is a slam-dunk No. 1 starting pitcher option at FantasyScore with a great matchup. Greinke is chasing history, too, as he enters the game with a 42 2/3 scoreless innings streak.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke will start this weekend

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:35:58 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (personal) will start against the New York Mets Saturday, July 25, or Sunday, July 26, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets are reeling at the dish, so it is a dream matchup for Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap), regardless of which day he takes the mound. Check back for an official announcement, and strongly consider building your FantasyScore lineup around Greinke and his 42 2/3 scoreless innings streak the day he starts.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke officially on paternity list

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 12:02:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (personal) was officially placed on the paternity list Friday, July 24. He is in Los Angeles for the birth of his first child. The Dodgers have not named their starter for Saturday July 25, or Sunday, July 26, and Greinke could theoretically make one of those starts.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to check back for updates, as when Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) will return to the mound is up in the air at this point. He currently has an active 43 2/3 innings scoreless streak and has been a top-tier hurler in all formats all season. With that said, don't rule out selling high on Greinke in seasonal leagues.

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 11:46:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Ian Thomas will start in place of SP Zack Greinke (personal) Friday, July 24, against the New York Mets. Greinke is away from the team for the birth of his child.

Fantasy Tip: Thomas isn't a real good start with his limited experience and his 4.14 ERA at Class AAA this season.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke likely to miss start

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 15:05:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke returned to Los Angeles Thursday, July 23, to be with his expectant wife. Greinke is considered unlikely to start Friday, July 24, against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) has a scoreless innings streak of 43 2/3, and an ERA of 1.30 for the season. He would've been the top FantasyScore option if he had been able to start against the Mets, but he will likely receive a boost with some extra rest as well.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke extends streak

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 17:15:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed three hits and struck out 11 in eight innings in a win over the Washington Nationals Sunday, July 19, extending his scoreless streak to 43 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) is starting to approach Orel Hershiser's record of 59 straight scoreless innings, and he is a must-start option at FantasyScore when he takes the mound.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke Ks four

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 18:08:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke became the first pitcher to strikeout at least four batters in an All-Star Game since Pedro Martinez had five in 1999, Tuesday, July 14.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9,200, 18.4% of cap) has a 7.74 K/9 on the season, but he had little trouble with the best in the game. Greinke should continue to be used on FantasyScore whenever possible in the second half of the season.
