Dodgers | Alex Guerrero cut by Dodgers

Tue, 31 May 2016 16:26:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Alex Guerrero will be designated for assignment Tuesday, May 31, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero hadn't played for the Dodgers this year, but he managed a .233 average with 11 home runs and 36 RBI in 106 games last year. He has decent pop for a utility player, and he could latch on with another organization and become relevant for depth in single-universe leagues.

Dodgers | Alex Wood DL-bound, Julio Urias returning

Tue, 31 May 2016 15:22:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias will return to the major leagues with SP Alex Wood (elbow) going on the disabled list with elbow soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Wood owners are surely disappointed after he allowed two earned runs or fewer in his last four starts prior to his injury. In deep mixed and NL-only leagues he must remain stashed. Urias, the Dodgers' top pitching prospect, had a forgettable debut against the Mets last year but has tons of upside and should be owned in all formats. Just keep in mind that the Blue will limit his innings this year and could move him to a relief role eventually.

Dodgers | Kenta Maeda has swelling in hand

Tue, 31 May 2016 15:15:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda (hand) has residual swelling in his right hand, and he's questionable for his start Thursday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: Maeda bounced back with five shutout innings in his last start before yielding four earned runs in each of his previous three outings before that. His hand injury isn't believed to be serious, so he should miss just one start maximum. Maeda is a midrange fantasy starter in all leagues but is a bit more risky next time out if he toes the rubber.

Dodgers | Alex Wood in doubt for next start

Tue, 31 May 2016 15:12:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Alex Wood (triceps) is dealing with some triceps soreness, and manager Dave Roberts is unsure if Wood will make his next start.

Fantasy Tip: It's unfortunate for Wood owners, as the lefty had just started turning things around on the hill before his latest injury after he discovered a few notable mechanical tweaks. Stay tuned for more updates, but consider him a risky proposition if he winds up making his next start.

Dodgers | Justin Turner with a day off

Tue, 31 May 2016 13:47:59 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 31. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at third and batting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.

Fantasy Tip: Nobody should be looking to roll with Kendrick in daily setups Tuesday against one of the best all-around pitchers in baseball.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford hitless in return

Tue, 31 May 2016 00:00:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (hamstring) returned to the lineup Monday, May 30, against the Chicago Cubs, but he went hitless in three at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford is ambling along right at the Mendoza line. He is only worth using in NL-only fantasy leagues at this point.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson to start Tuesday

Mon, 30 May 2016 23:59:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson (back) was 100 percent and available off the bench Monday, May 30, against the Chicago Cubs. He is expected to start in left field Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson isn't a great option outside of NL-only fantasy leagues in seasonal formats, but he is a nice salary saver option in DFS.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford draws into the lineup

Mon, 30 May 2016 12:17:29 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is starting in left field and batting eighth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Monday, May 30. 2B/OF Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford sits at just 14-for-67 for the season with a .508 OPS. At this point, he isn't receiving enough playing time to be considered anything more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. Kendrick hasn't been much better (.236/.275/.314 line), but his track record gives him a longer fantasy leash.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu suffered setback

Mon, 30 May 2016 03:02:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) felt some soreness after his latest rehab start and will back off his planned rehab program.

Fantasy Tip: It remains unclear how long the setback will delay his return. If you have been stashing him, continue to do so, but you could be waiting a while before having him available.

Dodgers | No-decision for Clayton Kershaw

Mon, 30 May 2016 00:57:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw tossed nearly eight innings of solid baseball, with no walks and 10 strikeouts, but did not get the decision Sunday, May 29. His team came back in the ninth inning for a 4-2 win over the New York Mets. It would have been Kershaw's sixth victory in a row. Kershaw finished 5-0 with a 0.91 ERA in six May starts. He had 65 strikeouts and two walks during the month.

Fantasy Tip: Chalk this one up to manager Dave Roberts playing the percentages and coming up short. Kershaw still had solid numbers even in the defeat. He had a strong month of May and remains one of the top options in all of baseball.

Dodgers | Kenta Maeda shakes off comebacker

Sun, 29 May 2016 18:45:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Kenta Maeda (hand) said he will be able to make his next start Thursday, June 2, against the Chicago Cubs after taking a line drive off his pitching hand Saturday, May 28. X-rays were negative, and he said he has no pain.

Fantasy Tip: Maeda has cooled a bit after a hot start, and while his hand is supposedly fine, it isn't the worst idea to leave him on the bench against the powerful offense of the Cubs.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson not hitting Sunday

Sun, 29 May 2016 13:52:40 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson (back) is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 29, against the New York Mets. OF Yasiel Puig is in right field and will hit fifth against Mets SP Bartolo Colon.

Fantasy Tip: It seems like Thompson and Puig are going back and forth in right field and platooning a bit, but Puig had four of the seven starts this week. If Thompson and Puig continue this pure platoon, neither player is a solid fantasy start in weekly or annual leagues. However, DFS players can benefit from this situation. Thompson may come off the bench for pinch-hit duties Sunday night, but he should still be seated.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson exits early

Sat, 28 May 2016 20:59:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson (back) exited against the New York Mets Saturday, May 28, with lower-back soreness.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has shown enough offensive upside to be owned in NL-only leagues, but check on his status moving forward to make sure he is safe to play.

Dodgers | Julio Urias sent back down

Sat, 28 May 2016 18:27:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias was optioned to Class AAA Oklahoma City Saturday, May 28, but head coach Dave Roberts didn't rule out Urias returning to the majors this season. In a corresponding move, RP Casey Fien's contract was purchased.

Fantasy Tip: Urias had command issues in his debut Friday, May 27, and the Dodgers have made no secret about wanting to limit his innings. Feel free to hang on to him if you have the space, but don't expect a ton of starts from him.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out Saturday

Sat, 28 May 2016 13:49:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 28, against the New York Mets. OF Trayce Thompson is playing right field and batting fifth against Mets SP Noah Syndergaard.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is starting in with old habits like lack of hustle on the bases, prompting manager Dave Roberts to sit him down. This appears to be a normal day off for Puig, who has eight hits in his last nine games. Sit Puig accordingly. Thompson's .279-7-19 average merits consideration in DFS leagues, but the revolving lineup means Thompson doesn't see action in every game.
