Dodgers | Yasiel Puig tests hammy

Sun, 03 May 2015 05:50:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) tested his injured hamstring by running lightly in the outfield Saturday, May 2. He is still expected to begin a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Puig's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) status and progress through his rehab assignment and look out for an official return date. He has nice upside at his cap hit for FantasyScore players, and Puig is surrounded by solid bats in a strong lineup. It might be time for seasonal players to accept injuries as part of the package with Puig, though.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson flashing power

Sun, 03 May 2015 05:08:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson hit his fourth home run over the past five games against the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: It was also the second consecutive game Pederson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) led off for the Dodgers, after he spent all season batting sixth or lower. He carried plenty of hype entering the season and his solid run in spring training helped. Pederson is currently sporting a .447 on-base percentage, which is excellent for points leagues and daily contests. Add his recent power surge, and Pederson should be on your FantasyScore radar.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen won't close right away?

Fri, 01 May 2015 18:33:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) will resume his closing duties at some point, but he might not close immediately upon his return from injury, manager Dan Mattingly said Friday May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Although Jansen may have to wait a bit to close games, he is still worth owning in all fantasy formats. He will start logging saves again eventually, and in the meantime, his strikeout potential makes him worth keeping inserting in your lineup when he returns.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig to rehab soon

Fri, 01 May 2015 18:19:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) could begin playing in rehab games next week, manager Don Mattingly said Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had been heating up when he went down with the hamstring injury, but when he returns, it is still a good idea to wait until he has a game or two under his belt before paying for him at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Juan Uribe sitting out vs. Arizona

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:23:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 1. 2B/3B Justin Turner is starting at the hot corner and batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday. He has hit .313 over his last 521 at-bats, and hitting behind Adrian Gonzalez helps, too. The 36-year-old Uribe ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is in danger of losing additional playing time, and he is best ignored in the majority of fantasy formats.

Dodgers | Alex Guerrero returns to the lineup

Fri, 01 May 2015 15:18:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF/2B Alex Guerrero is starting in left field and batting eighth against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is locked in at the plate this season with a .423 average (11-for-26), five home runs and 13 RBI. He is an excellent FantasyScore option given the lack of upside at second base around his price point.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu spins bullpen session

Fri, 01 May 2015 14:14:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Ryu ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) in a DL roster slot in the majority of formats and check back for updates. Over 344 innings in his career, Ryu has a respectable 3.17 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 7.7 K/9, and pitching for a strong team helps, too.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson has best walk rate

Fri, 01 May 2015 11:29:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson currently leads the majors with a 22.1% walk rate at age 23. He also has the third best on-base percentage in the league at .461. However, he also ranks 19th in strikeout rate, but he was moved to the leadoff spot Wednesday, April 29. Pederson currently has a slash line of .298/.461/.596 on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is off to a great start and could see his fantasy value skyrocket even more with the move to leadoff of a potent lineup. At FantasyScore, he's much more attractive batting leadoff, especially since it should give him more opportunities to run.

Dodgers | Corey Seager promoted to AAA

Fri, 01 May 2015 09:49:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager was promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: Seager torched Double-A with a .375-5-15 line and has been spending time at third base. He is likely on the cusp of a callup at any time.

Dodgers | Inquired about Josh Hamilton

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 19:24:33 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers asked the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim about OF Josh Hamilton before the Angels dealt the outfielder to the Texas Rangers, according to sources familiar with the discussions. The Dodgers are believed to have discussed both straight deals and three-way scenarios which would have sent Hamilton to Texas, but apparently they were unable to satisfy their cross-town rivals.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton had a no-trade clause, and he was clearly interested in returning to Texas where he has enjoyed his most success as a big leaguer. It will be interesting to see if BroHam can straighten his game out and re-emerge as a FantasyScore threat back in Arlington where he is obviously more comfortable.

Dodgers | Carlos Frias expected to start Friday

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 16:08:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Carlos Frias is expected to start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Through two career starts, Frias has a 10.80 ERA and a 2.10 WHIP, and he allowed a .406/.424/.531 slash line to opposing hitters. He allowed 18 hits over 12 2/3 innings with Triple-A Oklahoma this season, too. Until he strings together a few quality outings with the Dodgers there is no reason to start Frias. With a potential rotation spot, he is worth a speculative add in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, though.

Dodgers | Scott Baker pegged for Saturday start

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 16:03:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Baker is expected to start against the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, May 2.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to check back for an official announcement, but outside of cavernous mixed and NL-only formats, Baker ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) isn't worth starting. There is upside, but he has only made 12 starts since 2011, and at 33, you'll want to see him prove he can still retire batters consistently.

Dodgers | Brandon McCarthy set for Tommy John

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 15:50:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Thursday, April 30.

Fantasy Tip: It is safe to drop McCarthy in all seasonal fantasy formats, and likely everywhere outside of cavernous keeper/dynasty formats. Keep an eye out for Julio Urias, who is a young left-handed pitching phenom, and could earn a rotation spot later in the year. In the meantime, Scott Baker ($3,000, 6.0% of cap), who started Sunday, April 26, and Carlos Frias are candidates to start, however neither projects to have any significant fantasy impact.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke sporting a strong run

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 15:32:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke has not been credited with a loss since Aug. 9, 2014. Since then, he has an 8-0 record and a 2.00 ERA over 12 regular season starts.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) has been excellent since joining the Dodgers, as he boasts a 35-12 record, a 2.59 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and a 8.3 K/9 mark. While rarely included in the No. 1 fantasy starter discussion, Greinke has certainly pitched like one over the past two years and thus far in 2015. Start him with confidence in all formats, including FantasyScore, until he provides a reason not to.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal dropped down order

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 15:09:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is batting seventh against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has struggled in his first season with the Dodgers, as he is currently sporting an uninspiring .196 batting average. Still, he has proven to be a streaky hitter in the past, and he has a favorable mound matchup Wednesday against Ryan Vogelsong. Consider Grandal a nice upside play in FantasyScore contests Wednesday.
