Los Angeles Dodgers news, rumors and injuries
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 20:16:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers are not likely to deal Puig for young players, simply because they're overstocked on prospects and do not need more. Look for Puig to stick around in L.A. for a while.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (neck) did not start Sunday, July 26, but he came into the game against the New York Mets. Van Slyke is battling a stiff neck following an accident where he hit his head in a taxi.
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has mostly been bench material and should continue to be, but with all the injuries you never know when he might get an extended period of at-bats at the plate. Keep an eye on how much play he gets.
Mon, 27 Jul 2015 00:06:34 -0700
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.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 15:06:37 -0700
Fantasy Tip: A-Gone ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) battled neck stiffness the last two nights and has to deal with Matt Harvey tonight. He's not a real good start on FantasyScore today.

Updating an earlier report, Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (neck) is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, with a stiff neck. There is a chance he is a late addition if batting practice goes well.
Fantasy Tip: A-Gone ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) would face Matt Harvey, so it's not a fruitful matchup even if he is added to the lineup. Avoid him on FantasyScore today.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:42:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: CC ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has the tall task of facing Matt Harvey and he's not a real good buy on FantasyScore.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 14:41:29 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting .342 this month and is an excellent play on FantasyScore even against Matt Harvey. As for A-Gone, there is no word yet about an injury. Stay tuned after the game to see if something is disclosed.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 08:19:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) should continue to have a regular starting role with the Dodgers since he will not be traded this season. He is hitting only .200 this month but does have three home runs and 12 RBI during that span. Owners on FantasyScore could consider starting Puig, but may want to see if other options are available.
Sat, 25 Jul 2015 04:59:58 -0700
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.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 20:05:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Turner ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) continues to destroy left-handed pitching this season, and for the price, he is a borderline must-start option at FantasyScore against lefties.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:21:30 -0700
Fantasy Tip: A move to the senior circuit would increase Price's ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) fantasy value somewhat but he is an excellent starting pitching option in FantasyScore regardless of the team he is playing for.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 18:11:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: In other words, don't expect Puig ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) to be included in any potential deal for Cincinnati Reds SP Johnny Cueto or Detroit Tigers SP David Price. Through 50 games entering play Friday, July 24, Puig was batting .259 with five home runs and 20 RBIs.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:36:36 -0700
Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Alex Guerrero (back) is a late scratch against the New York Mets Friday, July 24. OF Enrique Hernandez draws into the lineup in left field, and he will bat sixth against Mets SP Jon Niese Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) from all fantasy lineups Friday. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an upside source of cap relief for FantasyScore players, and he'll likely be scarcely owned in daily contests, too.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 15:33:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Niese ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) still isn't a great FantasyScore option going against the Dodgers. View him as a high-risk, high-reward option in all fantasy formats Friday. In the majority of leagues, he is nothing more than a streaming option, too.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 14:39:42 -0700
Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (Achilles') is expected to start against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, July 28, according to manager Don Mattingly. Mattingly noted he wanted to provide Anderson with extra rest for his ankle.
Fantasy Tip: Anderson ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) carries a slight injury risk for his next start, and it wouldn't be out of the question to fade him at FantasyScore. Prior to his injury-shortened outing Tuesday, July 21, Anderson had a 3.17 ERA with 77 strikeouts over 18 outings and 108 innings pitched. He has settled in as a low-end fantasy arm in all mixed formats.
