Dodgers | No Yasmani Grandal against Tampa

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:18:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. C A.J. Ellis is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal has seven home runs and a 1.132 OPS in July, and while he's hot at the dish, he's a viable starter in all fantasy formats. Ellis is nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and NL-only leagues, and you shouldn't fret fading him in daily contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Chase Utley sitting vs. Tampa

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:08:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. SS Chris Taylor is starting at second base and batting sixth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Utley rarely plays against left-handed pitchers, which slightly curbs his upside. Leading off has helped him pound the runs column, and he currently sits with an impressive 50. He's worth starting in deep mixed and NL-only leagues. Taylor is receiving limited playing time and is nothing more than a flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig sitting again vs. Rays

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 10:02:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting fourth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Matt Moore Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Puig has been a headache all season and is having a career-worst campaign with a .255/.316/.376 slash line and just seven home runs. He's not a must-start outfielder in most leagues at this point. Van Slyke owns a .308/.379/.538 slash line against left-handed pitchers this season, and he's a strong option in daily contests Wednesday.

Rays | Steven Souza starting vs. Dodgers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 09:51:58 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays OF Steven Souza is starting in right field and batting fifth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy. Rays OF Brandon Guyer is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Both Souza and Guyer are fringe owns in deep mixed leagues given their poor batting averages and modest power upside. Souza is a potential flier in daily contests Wednesday, though.

Rays | Steve Pearce sitting vs. Dodgers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 09:35:13 -0700

Tampa Bay Rays 1B Steve Pearce is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 27. 1B Logan Morrison is starting at first base and batting sixth against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Pearce is having a nice season with a .313/.386/.530 slash line and is worth owning in the majority of seasonal leagues. Morrison is 11-for-51 (.216 batting average) in July with an underwhelming .660 OPS. He should be left to cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, and he's nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Wednesday.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal stays hot in July

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:30:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal was 1-for-3 with a solo home run against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, July 26. It was his seventh home run in July.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal is now hitting .309 with seven home runs and 10 RBI this month; for comparison, no other major-league backstop has more than four jacks in July. After two brutal months, Grandal's overall line isn't great, but he could be picked up if your own catcher is struggling or you're in need of a little extra pop.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick hit streak over at 16

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:25:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick went 0-for-3 against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, July 26, to end his streak of consecutive games with a hit at 16.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick has been a beast this month (.363-3-10 in 80 ABs) and should keep being utilized until it's clear his bat has truly cooled down.

Dodgers | Bud Norris shines against Rays

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:16:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris worked 6 1/3 scoreless innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday, July 26. He allowed two hits, walked two and struck out six to improve to 3-2 with the club.

Fantasy Tip: After taking the loss in an impromptu relief appearance on July 22, Norris bounced back with his best outing since joining the Dodgers. The bullpen made it interesting, but they held on for a 3-2 win. Norris is worth owning in NL-only setups and has spot start potential in deeper mixed leagues as well.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig sits out again

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 16:01:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer Tuesday, July 26. OF Andrew Toles will start in right field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Toles is hitting .333 since being recalled from the minor leagues but still has not recorded any RBI. He should be a starting option in NL-only leagues but can be avoided in mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Scott Kazmir picks up ninth win

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 04:14:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Kazmir improved to 9-3 overall with a 9-6 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday, July 24. Kazmir allowed three earned runs and struck out three in five innings of work.

Fantasy Tip: Kazmir is one of the last healthy starters left in the Dodger rotation, which has lost Hyun-Jin Ryu and Clayton Kershaw to injuries in recent weeks. Kazmir belongs in regular fantasy rotations and also should be played in DFS.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez smacks grand slam

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 23:22:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez hit a grand slam Sunday, July 24, in a 9-6 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is hitting .284-9-51, including six hits in his last four games. It looks like any signs of a slow start might be fading, and Gonzalez will need to have a solid second half to help the Dodgers do well. Keep him activated.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out Sunday

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 15:03:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 24, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Andrew Toles is in the lineup and will hit seventh against Cardinals SP Mike Mayers.

Fantasy Tip: Depending on if the Dodgers are successful in trading Puig, you could be looking at Toles as a starting right fielder in Los Angeles before too long. Toles hit .391 in his first 10 games with the parent club, so watch and see what happens.

Dodgers | Andrew Toles' fast start continues

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:52:35 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andrew Toles went 3-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in a 7-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, July 23, and he is hitting .391 in 10 games since being called up.

Fantasy Tip: At the very least, Toles is worth a look as a sleeper in daily games. His average will certainly dip going forward, but he could also be worth a speculative grab in NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Justin Turner drives in two more

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:48:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a steal in a 7-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals Saturday, July 23, and he is hitting .378 with 14 RBI in eight games since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Turner's bat just won't cool off. Needless to say, you should be riding his hot streak in daily games.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out Saturday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 13:51:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 23, with OF Andrew Toles hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Toles is hitting .316, but he's facing a red-hot Mike Leake tonight. He's a low-end option devoid of upside tonight.
