Dodgers | Zack Greinke loves Petco Park

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:31:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke will start on the road against the San Diego Padres Friday, April 24, and he is 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA in five career starts at Petco Park.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) allowed one earned run on two hits in a home start against the Padres April 7, and he has been dominant in San Diego. If you pay up for a starter at FantasyScore Friday, make sure it's Greinke.

Dodgers | Alex Guerrero delivers at the plate

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:20:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Alex Guerrero went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and single in a 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants Thursday, April 23, and he is hitting .474 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 19 at-bats this year.

Fantasy Tip: Although Juan Uribe ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has returned from injury and is expected to remain the primary starter at third base, Guerrero ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has shown plenty of offensive upside. When he does start, he is a great value play at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen to throw bullpen

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:52:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) said he will throw a bullpen session Saturday, April 25, and then throw a simulated game Tuesday, April 28. He'll go on a minor league rehab assignment after that if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen will immediately return to the Dodgers' closing role when fully healthy, especially after the Dodgers' bullpen imploded Thursday. Until Jansen's return, Joel Peralta is the Blue reliever to own in all formats for his short-term window for save opportunities.

Dodgers | A.J. Ellis available

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:59:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C A.J. Ellis (hand) is available off the bench and was able to throw Thursday, April 23, after X-rays on his hand came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has lost considerable playing time to Yasmani Grandal to open the 2015 season, and he's not of much use to FantasyScore gamers. Ellis really is only worth owning in deep NL-only leagues at this point.

Dodgers | Juan Uribe resting vs. Giants

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:54:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 2B Alex Guerrero is starting at the hot corner and hitting seventh in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hit his second pinch-hit home run of the season last night in a loss, and he has three long balls on the year, to go along with a .438 batting average (7-for-16). He has the pop to turn heads at FantasyScore, and his low price could really pay off Thursday against the struggling Vogelsong.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins out Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:50:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 2B Justin Turner is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) won't turn heads in typical fantasy baseball leagues, but he should tip the scales a bit Thursday at FantasyScore as a cheap flyer. Vogelsong (0-1, 10.45 ERA, 2.81 WHIP) is off to a horrendous start to the season.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson being rested

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:40:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. OF Chris Heisey, who was just called up from the minors, is starting in center field and hitting sixth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey will be a very cheap FantasyScore outfield option tonight against Bumgarner, but he should be avoided everywhere, especially since he hit only .205 (17-for-83) with three of his eight home runs against southpaws in 2014 with the Cincinnati Reds.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:36:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) surely won't be a popular daily pick tonight against Bumgarner, but he could help you get ahead of your competition at FantasyScore. Besides, Van Slyke hit .315 (34-for-108) with eight of his 11 home runs against lefties in 2014, so he's not a terrible pick. He's also 4-for-13 with four walks in his career against Bumgarner.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sitting against lefty

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:35:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. 2B Justin Turner is starting at first base and hitting second in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has the benefit of hitting near the top of the Dodgers order, but he's a weak FantasyScore play tonight while facing Bumgarner, even though he's struggled so far in 2015.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig returns to action

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 17:27:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is back in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Give Puig at least one game to prove his health without any lingering effects of the injury before plugging him back into FantasyScore lineups at $5,300 (or 10.6% of cap).

Dodgers | Corey Seager playing third

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

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager played his second game at third base 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.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig back in there

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.
