Dodgers | Austin Barnes catching Sunday

Sun, 24 May 2015 12:57:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Austin Barnes is making his major league debut against the San Diego Padres Sunday, May 24.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes was promoted from the minors when Yasmani Grandal was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Despite getting the start behind the plate today, expect A.J. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) to get most of the playing time while Grandal is sidelined.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson homers again

Sun, 24 May 2015 05:38:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson hit his team leading 12th home run Saturday, May 23, against the San Diego Padres. It was the third career leadoff homer for Pederson. The Dodgers' rookie has nine home runs and 28 strikeouts in 21 games since moving up from the eighth spot in the batting order April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has a five-game hit streak with homers in each of his last two games. Owners are yet to see much of Pederson's speed on the base paths, but his power threat is enough to keep him under regular consideration on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Mike Bolsinger strong in win

Sat, 23 May 2015 22:04:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger pitched eight innings of one-hit baseball Saturday, May 23, against the San Diego Padres. He struck out eight batters and did not yield a run, making him a winner of three straight starts.

Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been a fantasy rock star in his last two starts, going 14 scoreless innings with as many K's. His spot in the rotation as the fifth starter is looking more secure with every passing inning, and he's now worth an add in mixed leagues. Expect his FantasyScore price to increase before his next start, which should come Wednesday, May 27, against the Atlanta Braves.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal to DL

Sat, 23 May 2015 14:56:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (concussion) was placed on the 7-day concussion list. C Austin Barnes was recalled from AAA Oklahoma City to fill the spot on the roster.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be sidelined for the next week or until he proves his concussion symptoms have disappeared.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal injured

Sat, 23 May 2015 00:24:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (face) left the game Friday, May 22, against the San Diego Padres when he was struck in his catcher's mask by a bat and a foul ball. C A.J. Ellis replaced him. Grandal will not play Saturday, May 23, but that was already a scheduled day off for him.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely be all right, but take him out of your lineup for a couple days to be on the safe side. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) won't offer much fantasy value to you.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier breaks scoreless streak

Sat, 23 May 2015 00:14:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier's RBI double Friday, May 22, helped the Dodgers snap a string of 35 straight scoreless innings. It was their longest scoreless streak since 1962.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been hitting stronger lately in the absence of players like Carl Crawford and Yasiel Puig. He could see some more playing time even after Puig returns.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig still hurting

Fri, 22 May 2015 18:25:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is still dealing with tightness in his hamstring, manager Don Mattingly said Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like it could still be a while before Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is able to return. If you drafted him in a seasonal league, you have no choice but to continue to stash him.

Padres | Clint Barmes starting against Dodgers

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:25:25 -0700

San Diego Padres SS Clint Barmes is batting eighth and starting at shortstop against the Los Angeles Dodgers Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: Over his last 993 plate appearances, Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .225/.273/.315 slash line. So with Zack Greinke on the hill, there is no reason to target Barmes in any fantasy format Friday. At best, he is a desperation source of cap relief.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke starting vs. Friars

Fri, 22 May 2015 15:01:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and batting eighth against the San Diego Padres Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: While Van Slyke's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) numbers this season are excellent, he has hit a minor hiccup of late with just two runs, a home run, six RBI and a .233/.261/.349 slash line dating back to May 2. Consider him a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests until he picks it up again at the dish.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig near return?

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:59:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has felt better in recent days and may be nearing a return to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been missed in the lineup in the past couple weeks. Monitor his progress and avoid using him in the first game or two back until he works the kinks out of his body.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu has labrum repaired

Thu, 21 May 2015 11:06:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) has surgery to fix the labrum in his left shoulder Thursday, May 21, and he will not pitch in 2015. However, the chances of him returning in spring training next year are good, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: You can safely drop Ryu in all single-year fantasy formats. Mike Bolsinger ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has excelled in the fifth starting spot for the Blue and has earned a longer stay. However, Brandon Beachy (elbow), who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, could push for a rotation post this summer.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal out vs. tough lefty

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:54:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. C A.J. Ellis is behind the dish and hitting eighth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has struggled to produce at the plate in limited playing time in 2015, hitting .125 (4-for-32) with one RBI. Avoid him at FantasyScore this afternoon.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier sitting the bench

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:51:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup Thursday, May 21. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and hitting sixth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has fared better against righties (.314-2-13) than lefties (.263-0-1) this year, so he's not the most intriguing option today, especially while facing Bumgarner.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins not playing Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:46:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup against a lefty Thursday, May 21. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at shortstop and hitting second in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end play at FantasyScore going up against MadBum, who has pitched very well against L.A. in his career.

Dodgers | Alex Guerrero starting in LF

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:50:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Alex Guerrero is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Tim Lincecum Wednesday, May 20.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is in the midst of a fine season (.328-6-16) and has been seeing regular playing time thanks to injuries to Yasiel Puig (hamstring) and Carl Crawford (oblique). The numbers say that you should consider him a solid candidate for your FantasyScore lineups tonight, as he's hitting .333 (16-for-48) with three doubles, four home runs and nine RBI against right-handed hurlers in 2015.
