Dodgers | Jim Johnson records save Thursday

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:50:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Jim Johnson recorded the save by tossing one perfect inning against the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: CL Kenley Jansen had pitched in each of the team's previous three games, so it appears he was just getting the day off. This was Johnson's first save with the Dodgers, after he notched nine with Atlanta earlier this season.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke earns 14th win

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 17:24:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke (14-3) allowed four hits over seven scoreless innings in a victory over the Cincinnati Reds Thursday, Aug. 27, with two walks and nine strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: With the win, Greinke ($9,800, 19.6% of cap) lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.61 and showed why he is a must-start in FantasyScore every time he takes the mound. He will make his next start against Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig exits early

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:33:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) pulled up after running out an infield single and had to leave the game Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) may have aggravated his right hamstring injury. You'll want to check back for updates before making any hasty roster decisions, as it might have just been a precautionary exit. Adrian Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is already dealing with a knee injury and is day-to-day, so there could be a new-look lineup for the Dodgers over the next few days. Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Andre Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) are likely to see more playing time, if Puig's injury is serious.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez exits, is day-to-day

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:44:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (knee) fouled a ball off his knee and had to leave the game early Thursday, Aug. 27. He has a right knee contusion and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Be ready to be without Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) for a game or two, and make sure to check back for updates. He is having another reliable season with 24 home runs, 74 RBI with a .288/.361/.511 slash line. The Dodgers have a few options to fill in at first base, but Scott Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) projects to fill in while Gonzalez is out.

Dodgers | Alberto Callaspo released by Dodgers

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:36:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Alberto Callaspo was released Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: There is potential Callaspo will catch on with another team, but there is no reason to wait and see outside of NL-only and cavernous mixed leagues. Even there, you likely should aim higher.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal returns

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 08:20:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) returned to the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) faces Anthony DeSclafani and is a midrange option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson likely to play Thursday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:56:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson will probably be back in the starting lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: The monumental slump that Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has endured since the All-Star break has been supremely disappointing to his owners, and it's landed him a bench spot behind Enrique Hernandez in center field. Pederson is hitting .163 (15-for-92) with three home runs, seven RBI and 35 strikeouts since July 17. It'll be hard to trust him tomorrow in daily games, even against a hittable pitcher in Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal to return Thursday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:54:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) will return to the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been bothered by a nagging shoulder ailment of late, and his results at the plate have suffered as a result. Sitting him out tomorrow in a day game is probably the smart thing to do on FantasyScore, even though he has a nice matchup against Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sidelined Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:06:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) is out of the lineup again Wednesday, Aug. 26. C A.J. Ellis is behind the dish and is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg.

Fantasy Tip: Facing a hittable lefty like Holmberg may be one of the few times you consider using Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) as a sleeper catcher pick on FantasyScore. Ellis can also save you significant cap space for the rest of your lineup.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out again

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:02:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the lineup for the second straight day against a left-handed pitcher Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and hitting fifth against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg.

Fantasy Tip: Holmberg presents FantasyScore users with a nice chance to stack Dodgers hitters tonight. However, Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) hasn't really taken advantage of his opportunities at facing southpaws this year, hitting only .230 (14-for-61) with two of his four home runs against them. He'll remain a rather mediocre daily selection.

Dodgers | Julio Urias still a ways off

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 17:38:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias might be called up to the big club at some point in September, but manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday, Aug. 25, that it will not be early in the month.

Fantasy Tip: Urias is a player worth watching, as he has been a high strikeouts pitcher in the minor leagues. FantasyScore players could find themselves a nice bargain later in September if he gets the nod and makes a start or two at some point.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick could start rehab this week

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:30:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (hamstring) could begin his rehab assignment by the end of this week.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) won't be back until sometime early in September, but when he's back playing, he should go right back to being an excellent value on FantasyScore as L.A.'s starting second baseman. Chase Utley ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will likely move to some sort of utility role, which will make him tougher to rely on in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal bothered by shoulder

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:07:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) is still bothered by his sore shoulder, and he's likely to be out of the starting lineup again Wednesday, Aug. 26. However, he's not expected to land on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure you leave Grandal out of your daily lineups for at least the next couple of days. A.J. Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) will start in his absence, but he's not known for his bat and should be considered a low-end catching option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not starting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:02:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Cincinnati Reds. C A.J. Ellis is batting seventh against Reds SP John Lamb.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) appears to be out of the lineup due to Lamb's presence and nothing else. Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .600 average with one homer in five at-bats this past week, so if you're looking for a lower-cost catcher he may fit the bill.

Dodgers | Mat Latos scheduled to start Saturday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:01:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mat Latos threw a simulated game in Arizona Monday, Aug. 24, to prepare for his start Saturday, Aug. 29, against the Chicago Cubs.

Fantasy Tip: It's definitely not the ideal time to return for Latos ($5,900, 11.8% of cap) as far as his FantasyScore prospects go. The Cubbies are ranked third in OPS (.844) in the month of August. It'd be wise to look in another direction than Latos Saturday.
