Dodgers | Joc Pederson remains out Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:58:35 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is out of the starting lineup for the second consecutive day Saturday, Aug. 1, against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney. OF Enrique Hernandez will start in center field again and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers are facing another left-handed starter, which explains Pederson's ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) absence from the lineup. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) went 2-for-3 with a double Friday, and is an excellent source of cap relief for FantasyScore owners.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier remains out Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:58:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out of the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Saturday, Aug. 1. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in left field for the second consecutive game and bat cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is sitting out because the Dodgers are facing their second left-handed starter in as many contests. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) went 1-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Friday, and is hitting .286 versus lefties in 42 at-bats this season. He's a good value play in FantasyScore this afternoon for owners looking for an inexpensive outfielder.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke wins fifth straight

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 04:31:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke won his fifth straight start Friday, July 31, as he allowed two runs and five hits in eight innings in a 5-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9.800, 19.6% of cap) leads the majors with a 1.41 ERA and has a 23-5 home record at Dodger Stadium. He is a must start in all fantasy formats, but Greinke is particularly deadly at home.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier not in lineup Friday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:15:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Friday, July 31. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in left field and bat cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is out of the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is batting .282 with two home runs and five RBIs in 39 at-bats versus southpaws this season, making him a nice sleeper play in FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson not in lineup

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:12:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Friday, July 31. OF Enrique Hernandez will start in center field and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) finds himself riding the pine tonight due to the fact that the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .346 with four RBIs during the month of July and can be viewed in FantasyScore as a productive means of salary cap relief.

Dodgers | Alex Guerrero grabs fleeting value

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:34:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Alex Guerrero will receive the majority of starts at third base while 3B Justin Turner (leg, illness) is on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has upside, but he is also sporting a .176/.189/.315 slash line over his past 50 games. FantasyScore players should consider him a high-risk, high-reward flier, and while seasonal owners could take a speculative dice roll on his fleeting opportunity, they'll want to keep expectations in check.

Dodgers | Justin Turner timeline

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:29:49 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (leg, illness) will need another six to seven days before resuming baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) to miss two weeks, at the most, and it is unlikely he'll require a minor league rehab assignment. Continue to monitor the situation, and expect Alex Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to see the majority of starts at third base with Turner out.

Dodgers | Justin Turner has a skin infection

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:15:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (leg, illness) has a skin infection on his right thigh.

Fantasy Tip: While it is never ideal to have a player miss time, Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) isn't dealing with an injury that'll significantly impact his baseball activities, such as a knee, shoulder or hand injury would. Continue to check back for updates.

Dodgers | Mike Bolsinger demoted

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:02:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger was optioned to the minor leagues Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: With the additions of Alex Wood and Mat Latos, Bolsinger was bumped from the rotation. Bolsinger can be dropped in the majority of leagues, but he is also likely the next man up, if there is an injury to the Los Angeles rotation.

Dodgers | Justin Turner placed on disabled list

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:55:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (leg, illness) was placed on the disabled list Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners will want to check back for a return timeline for Turner ($5,300, 10.6% of cap). He has emerged as a legit force this season, and over the past two seasons no one has a higher wOBA (.420) than he does against right-handed pitchers. Expect Alex Guerrero ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) to receive the majority of starts at third base, but the young slugger's offense has fell off the map since his hot start to the season. Guerrero has a .176/.189/.315 slash line over his past 50 games.

Dodgers | Kershaw scratched, Greinke starting

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 15:15:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (hip) will not start Friday, July 31. Instead, SP Zack Greinke will start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday. Kershaw will pitch against the Angels Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kershaw ($9,700, 19.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday, and ensure Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) is in your starting lineups in seasonal leagues. At FantasyScore, Greinke should be viewed as a top-tier arm with risk. The Angels boast a capable offense, and Greinke is the most expensive player in the entire player pool. Still, Greinke should be on your radar.

Dodgers | Carlos Carrasco of interest to Dodgers

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:25:41 -0700

Cleveland Indians SP Carlos Carrasco is of trade interest to the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: There is no indication of the severity of the Dodgers' interest, and they may just be kicking tires. Carrasco ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) would receive a nice boost moving to the National League, but fantasy owners will want to wait for an official announcement and not make any hasty decisions.

Dodgers | Michael Morse, Brandon Beachy DFA'd

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 16:31:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon Beachy and 1B Michael Morse were designated for assignment Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) managed just a .214 batting average in 173 plate appearances for the Miami Marlins this season. He is still just 33, and he should receive another major-league opportunity, but he likely won't have any fantasy value again this season.

Dodgers | Alex Wood, Mat Latos acquired by LAD

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 12:01:02 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired SP Alex Wood, SP Mat Latos, 1B Michael Morse, RP Jim Johnson, RP Luis Avilan, 2B Jose Peraza and SP Bronson Arroyo as part of the a three-way trade with the Miami Marlins and Atlanta Braves Thursday, July 30. The Braves acquired 2B Hector Olivera, RP Paco Rodriguez, SP Zachary Bird and a draft choice, and the Marlins added SP Kevin Guzman, SP Jeff Brigham and RP Victor Araujo.

Fantasy Tip: Wood ($6,200, 12.4% of cap) and Latos ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) receive a huge boost starting for a strong team, which boasts an excellent offense and bullpen. They can both be started with confidence in the majority of matchups. Morse ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has struggled significantly this season, and he will have a tough time receiving enough at-bats to tip the fantasy scales. Johnson goes from closing duties in Atlanta to being a set-up arm for the Dodgers, and he is nothing more than a desperation saves stash, as he is unlikely even the next man up.

Dodgers | Jose Peraza in proposed deal

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 09:45:57 -0700

Atlanta Braves 2B Jose Peraza is included in the proposed deal with SP Alex Wood, RP Jim Johnson and RP Luis Avilan headed to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Miami Marlins would send SP Mat Latos and 1B Michael Morse to the Dodgers as well. The Marlins would receive P Jeff Brigham, P Victor Araujo and P Kevin Guzman. The Braves would receive RP Paco Rodriguez and 2B Hector Olivera.

Fantasy Tip: The deal is still pending because of physicals. Peraza probably doesn't have a role with the Dodgers this season, but he's a dynasty league commodity. Jim Johnson would lose much of his fantasy value as a setup man in LA. Arodys Vizcaino is expected to be the front runner to close in Atlanta if the deal goes through.
