Fantasy Tip: Taking Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) against another ace, Madison Bumgarner, might be dicey, but you can't argue against starting Greinke on FantasyScore otherwise.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano can play all three outfield positions, but he is likely to serve in a reserve role. FantasyScore players will only want to use him if he starts and faces a favorable matchup.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed OF Enrique Hernandez (hamstring) on the 15-day disabled list Monday, Aug. 31, due to a strained left hamstring. The team recalled C Austin Barnes from the minors to serve as a third catcher.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez is expected to be sidelined at least until the end of September. Joc Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) will serve as the club's regular center field for the next couple of weeks, so FantasyScore owners will likely find him to be a mid-level bargain.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will promote Ps Mike Bolsinger, Joel Peralta and Ian Thomas to the big club Tuesday, Sept. 1, when rosters expand. The team is expected to make additional moves later in the month.
Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger has started games in the past and could be used in a pinch if the team feels there is a need. FantasyScore players likely need not bother with any of them, although Bolsinger likely is the best bet to make a splash again.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson is starting in center field and batting eighth against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Monday, Aug. 31. OF Enrique Hernandez is not in the starting lineup Monday.
Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has fallen off the face of the fantasy map since early June. Over his last 270 plate appearances, he has six home runs, 15 RBI and a .165/.322/.294 slash line, which shouldn't inspire confidence for Pederson at FantasyScore Monday. Make sure to avoid Hernandez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap), too.

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Sunday, Aug. 30, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Enrique Hernandez is playing third base against Cubs SP Jake Arrieta, and OF Joc Pederson is in Hernandez's place.
Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) may be due for a day off with a .136 mark in the last week, and the right vs. left matchup may be just what Turner needs. Sit him down for the night.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) will take a seat against the lefty, Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap), and he shouldn't be in your plans at FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:41:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has just three hits in his last nine games, and he shouldn't be in your plans at FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:37:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is hitting .309 on the year and is riding a modest five-game hitting streak. Moving up in the order will boost his value, but he isnít overly appealing at FantasyScore while facing an ace like Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap).
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:32:51 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been sitting against lefties lately, so it is no surprise he isn't facing Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap). Look elsewhere for a catcher at FantasyScore.
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:27:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting just .224 on the year, and he doesn't offer much upside at FantasyScore against Lester ($8,700, 17.4% of cap).
Sat, 29 Aug 2015 17:16:34 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Peraza has just one hit in six at-bats this year and isn't a viable fantasy option.

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig's (hamstring) injury will keep him out "more than 10 days," according to manager Don Mattingly. Mattingly is hopeful the hamstring is not as badly injured as it was earlier in the season.
Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) missed five weeks earlier in the season with an injury to the same hamstring, so the injury clearly is a significant concern and could potentially end his season. At this point, there is no indication that will be the case, though. Continue to check back for updates on Puig, and to reiterate past tips, Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is the playing-time beneficiary of Puig's injury.
Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:08:02 -0700
Fantasy Tip: This isn't surprising news. Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats, especially since we don't know his return timeline yet. Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) grabs extra value while Puig's out, and Crawford isn't a bad add in deep mixed leagues. Continue to check back for more details on Puig's injury.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) pulled up abruptly after running out an infield single Thursday, Aug. 27, and it is believed he aggravated his right hamstring injury. Check back for updates, and while it isn't time to make hasty roster decisions, looking for potential replacements isn't a bad idea. Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) stands as a viable value play at FantasyScore Friday, and he projects to see an uptick in playing time for the duration of Puig's absence.
