Dodgers | Corey Seager to provide depth

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:52:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager is expected to back up SS Jimmy Rollins at shortstop and could also provide insurance behind 3B Justin Turner (pinkie), especially after Turner was hit by a pitch in his left pinkie Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Fantasy Tip: While Seager will be a utility infielder for the Dodgers in the last month, he could see decent playing time spelling Rollins and Turner, especially if Turner needs to rest his finger this week. Seager did nothing but hit in two minor league stops this year and is one of the top overall prospects in all of baseball. He's already owned in all keeper formats most likely, and he's worth adding in NL-only leagues, too.

Dodgers | Justin Turner has injured pinkie

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 09:28:29 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (pinkie) was hit by a pitch in his left pinkie Wednesday, Sept. 2, but X-rays came back negative. The Dodgers don't have a true backup third baseman, which may explain their call-up of SS prospect Corey Seager Thursday, Sept. 3. Seager is primarily a shortstop, but he started 19 games at third base in the minors this season in case the Dodgers needed to use him there. Seager has batted .293 with 18 home runs and an .831 OPS in 124 games in two minor league stops this year, and he was 11-for-35 with six extra-base hits in his last 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Turner's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) injury doesn't appear serious, so it's a bit of an unknown how much Seager will play this month as the Dodgers look to hold onto the National League West lead. Seager should already be owned in all keeper leagues, and he could be relevant in NL-only leagues, too, but his playing time could be sporadic.

Dodgers | Corey Seager coming up

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 07:15:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager is being recalled from the minors Thursday, Sept. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Seager is one of the top prospects in baseball. It's unknown how much he'll play, but he should be owned in NL-only leagues and is a watch list player in mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier has success against Leake

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 16:32:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is 7-for-15 with a double and two home runs against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake, who he faces Wednesday, Sept. 2. Ethier is also coming off an August in which he hit .375 with three home runs.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is both hot at the plate and has good career numbers against Leake, which is a good combination for FantasyScore gamers. Ethier could be an excellent value pick tonight.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw has owned SF

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 09:53:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw has a 1.63 ERA in his career against the San Francisco Giants, which is the lowest ERA by an active pitcher against any single opponent with a minimum of 25 starts, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Fantasy Tip: Everyone already knows that Kershaw ($9,900, 19.8% of cap) is legit, and he's the highest priced player on FantasyScore for Wednesday's games. Selecting him could make it tough to field a competitive lineup around him, but the Giants have also been pretty bad on the road recently, too.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sitting out

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:23:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Tuesday, Sept. 1. C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a defensive-minded catcher that should be avoided on FantasyScore this evening against the tough lefty.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out vs. southpaw

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:20:29 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Tuesday, Sept. 1. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier and Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) are effectively platooning in left field now with Ethier facing righties and Van Slyke starting against lefties. Van Slyke hasn't stood out while facing lefties this year, and it won't get any easier against Bumgarner. Look elsewhere on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Jose Peraza draws into lineup

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 16:15:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Jose Peraza is starting at second base and batting second against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner Tuesday, Sept. 1. 2B Chase Utley has the day off against a lefty.

Fantasy Tip: Peraza ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has fantasy intrigue for his stolen base potential but doesn't possess much power at all. He's only had 11 major league at-bats to this point, so he's one to avoid against the MadBum tonight.

Dodgers | Corey Seager won't be recalled yet

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 14:09:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager will not be recalled Tuesday, Sept. 1. He may still be called up later this month, though.

Fantasy Tip: Seager is a high-end prospect, and potentially the best hitter currently outside the majors. Over 102 games with Class AAA Oklahoma City, he owns a .276/.329/.448 slash line with 61 runs, 27 doubles, 13 home runs and 56 RBI. At just 21, the shortstop could likely use a little more seasoning in the minor leagues. He is worth stashing in the majority of keeper/dynasty formats, though.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke likes facing Giants

Tue, 01 Sep 2015 09:59:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke is 6-0 with a 2.28 ERA in eight career starts against the San Francisco Giants, who he faces Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Taking Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) against another ace, Madison Bumgarner, might be dicey, but you can't argue against starting Greinke on FantasyScore otherwise.

Dodgers | Justin Ruggiano added by LAD

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 22:48:07 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired OF Justin Ruggiano from the Seattle Mariners Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano can play all three outfield positions, but he is likely to serve in a reserve role. FantasyScore players will only want to use him if he starts and faces a favorable matchup.

Dodgers | Enrique Hernandez lands on DL

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:45:47 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed OF Enrique Hernandez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 31, due to a strained left hamstring. The team recalled C Austin Barnes from the minors to serve as a third catcher.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is expected to be sidelined at least until the end of September. Joc Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will serve as the club's regular center field for the next couple of weeks, so FantasyScore owners will likely find him to be a mid-level bargain.

Dodgers | Three arms coming to help out

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:45:06 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers will promote Ps Mike Bolsinger, Joel Peralta and Ian Thomas to the big club Tuesday, Sept. 1, when rosters expand. The team is expected to make additional moves later in the month.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger has started games in the past and could be used in a pinch if the team feels there is a need. FantasyScore players likely need not bother with any of them, although Bolsinger likely is the best bet to make a splash again.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson starting vs. Giants

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 15:36:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is starting in center field and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Monday, Aug. 31. OF Enrique Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has fallen off the face of the fantasy map since early June. Over his last 270 plate appearances, he has six home runs, 15 RBI and a .165/.322/.294 slash line, which shouldn't inspire confidence for Pederson at FantasyScore Monday. Make sure to avoid Hernandez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), too.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 15:02:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Enrique Hernandez is playing third base against Cubs SP Jake Arrieta, and OF Joc Pederson is in Hernandez's place.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) may be due for a day off with a .136 mark in the last week, and the right vs. left matchup may be just what Turner needs. Sit him down for the night.
