Dodgers | Corey Seager playing third

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 07:52:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager played his second game in five days at Double-A Tulsa Monday, April 20. The team insists shortstop will remain his primary position.

Fantasy Tip: The team could be grooming the top prospect for a major league callup at third base. Seager is hitting .478 with two homers and 11 RBI in 11 games at Double-A. He needs to be owned in NL-only leagues, and he's worth watching in mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu not cleared

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 09:02:50 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) has still not been cleared to throw off a mound as he progresses from a sore throwing shoulder. He has played some catch but hasn't moved to a long-toss routine. Ryu isn't sure when he'll get back on a mound or when he'll return to the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Ryu ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) had been hoping to return sometime in late May, but that timetable may need to be pushed back because of his slow progress. He should continue to be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed leagues, but if you don't have the room in shallow mixed leagues, there's no reason to stay loyal at this point.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig not starting Sunday

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:36:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, April 19, because of a left hamstring injury. He is listed as day-to-day. OF Andre Ethier will start in right field and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) went 2-for-3 Saturday, after having missed the previous three games with soreness in his hamstring, but still appeared to be in pain while running the bases and playing defense. Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is batting .292 through 10 games this season.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford scratched Sunday

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:20:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (illness) is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, April 19, because of flu-like symptoms. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in his place in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will miss his second consecutive start due to illness but could be back in action when the team begins their road trip Tuesday, April 21. Van Slyke ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a career .300 hitter against Rockies pitching and makes a good sleeper option in FantasyScore.

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 15:25:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) returned to the lineup Saturday, April 18, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of your cap) is a daily consideration on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier starting Saturday

Sat, 18 Apr 2015 14:47:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is in the lineup Saturday, April 18.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of your cap) draws the start against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles. He's a late plug-and-play option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | DL unlikely for Yasiel Puig

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 16:11:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) likely will not have to be placed on the 15-day disabled list because of his hamstring injury, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: There is no official timetable for Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap), but it appears that he will be able to return to the lineup in a few days. Owners should avoid Puig until he continues playing.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier in lineup

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:54:35 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is in the starting lineup Friday, April 17, in place of OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring). Ethier is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has recorded six hits and two RBI in his last four games. He could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig still out

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 15:53:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: Puig's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) return to the lineup will be delayed for at least one more day, so owners should continue to monitor the situation. Andre Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is taking his place in the lineup and could be a cheaper option for owners to consider.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez has simple approach

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 10:43:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez, who set a franchise record with 19 hits through the first nine games of the season, said he has kept his approach at the plate simple to begin the year. He's now batting a major league-leading .528 and has reached base two or more times in each game this year. "I haven't really been trying to hit home runs in BP. I've just been trying to hit line drives up the middle. I think it's played out, especially when I've been facing lefties, where I've been hitting the ball up the middle, the other way, more than I did last year," Gonzalez said.

Fantasy Tip: While Gonzalez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) likely already reached his fantasy peak in 2015, he could very well be in the beginning of a return to the 30-homer mark if he can stay healthy. You should continue riding him at FantasyScore while he's scorching hot. A matchup against Colorado Rockies starter Kyle Kendrick looks juicy, too.

Dodgers | Shift hurting Clayton Kershaw?

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 14:54:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw was hurt by defensive shifts early in his loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks last weekend. "A lot of people do a lot of research and a lot of homework to put guys where they're supposed to be," Kershaw said. "You execute the game plan, the theory is they'll hit it where they are. Sometimes, it works. Sometimes, it doesn't." Manager Don Mattingly does not believe hitters have the ability to hit the ball where they desire to foil defensive shifts. However, Mattingly also said the team may need to alter their defensive approach to certain hitters if they prove that they are adept at beating the shift.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) remains one of the best pitchers in baseball, if not the best, despite his slow start to the 2015 season (0-1, 5.84 ERA in 12 1/3 innings). You shouldn't hesitate at all to use him in his next start at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford available off bench

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:43:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (foot) jammed his foot Tuesday, April 14, but he is still available off the bench Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) still needs to be avoided in all formats Wendesday, but it is encouraging he isn't likely to miss an extended period of time. Expect Crawford to return to the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Friday, April 17.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig expected back Friday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:27:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is expected to return to the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Friday, April 17, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: It is worth double-checking Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) does in fact return Friday, but otherwise return him to your lineups with confidence. Opposing pitcher Kyle Kendrick doesn't evoke any matchup concerns, either.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta being treated for stiff neck

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 16:06:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (neck) was treated for a stiff neck Wednesday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown if it will impact his availability, and if it does, for how long. Consider Chris Hatcher the stronger saves candidate in the short term, though. However, neither have anything more than fleeting value in deep leagues, as Kenley Jansen will take over closing duties when he returns in mid-May.
