Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) could go on a minor league rehab assignment soon, but his return to the team isn't imminent. Andre Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) remains a very viable value pick on FantasyScore when the team is facing a right-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) will now be out at least an additional four weeks while dealing with a torn oblique. Don't expect him to be much of a factor in the second half of the season after he returns. For now, Alex Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) benefits the most with playing time in left field, and he certainly has the pop (nine homers in 93 at-bats) to be a value pick at FantasyScore.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Enrique Hernandez is starting in left field and hitting sixth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Monday, June 1. 2B Alex Guerrero will start on the bench.
Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) represents a sleeper option that could pay off at FantasyScore while hitting in a great offensive environment against a pitcher that has allowed a .282 opponents batting average and 1.000 OPS at home.

Fantasy Tip: Using a player with a game at hitter-friendly Coors Field is never really a bad idea, especially if they're hitting in the middle of the order in a potent lineup. Kendrick ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is facing a pitcher that gave up at least four earned runs in three of his five starts in May, too.

Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has shown an impressive combination of power and patience for a rookie, and while the occasional poor performance is to be expected, he is worth considering at FantasyScore whenever he is facing a right-handed pitcher.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Carlos Frias allowed one unearned run on five hits over seven innings of work on Saturday, May 30, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Frias was tagged for 10 runs his previous time out.
Fantasy Tip: Frias ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is still a pitcher who has displayed inconsistency in his time in Los Angeles, as these two starts attest. It is best to keep an eye on his matchup before sinking fantasy money into him.
Sun, 31 May 2015 03:53:35 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal, who was playing in his first game back since going on the 7-day DL with a concussion, hit a three-run homer as the Dodgers beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 5-1, on Saturday, May 30.
Fantasy Tip: So much for Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) having any weakness or vulnerability. He won't be invincible overnight, but the home run came off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha. Keep an eye on matchups, but otherwise Grandal is a safe bet.

Fantasy Tip: Puig still probably has two weeks of hurdles to cross before returning. Keep him stashed on your DL.
Sat, 30 May 2015 14:33:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It's a curious move considering he has hit safely in six straight games and is hitting .320 the last week. Rollins' ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) price isn't terrible, but we'd like to see more before starting him on FantasyScore.
Fri, 29 May 2015 21:50:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was on a tear prior to being sidelined, but it isnít a bad idea to give him a game to make sure he has his timing down before trusting him at FantasyScore.
Fri, 29 May 2015 14:37:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It wouldn't be out of the question to allow Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) a game to regain his feel at the dish before returning him to your fantasy lineups, especially in FantasyScore contests. Over the 15 games prior to the injury, Grandal was scorching hot and sporting a 20-for-47 stretch with seven runs, three home runs, 15 RBI and a .426/.509/.702 slash line. He should be owned in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Holliday in all fantasy formats Friday. He is having antoher steady start to the season with 18 runs, three home runs, 24 RBI, two stolen bases and a .320/.433/.444 slash line. Grichuk ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) has performed well when called upon this season, and he is currently riding a 12-for-31 run with four runs, a home run, six RBI and a 1.148 OPS. FantasyScore players should view Grichuk as a low-priced target Friday.
Fri, 29 May 2015 13:07:07 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has hit his way into near must-start territory, especially at his cost-effective price. He currently sports a .310/.344/.701 slash line with nine home runs and 21 RBI over 93 plate appearances. Guerrero should also be owned in the majority of seasonal leagues, as he projects to receive more at-bats going forward.
Thu, 28 May 2015 13:39:57 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Seager has been a beast at the plate in the minors this year and has continued his dominance of minor league pitching after his promotion. He should be stashed in all keeper and dynasty leagues. A September call-up in 2015 isn't out of the question, but he's unlikely to make a significant fantasy impact until 2016.
Wed, 27 May 2015 20:17:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) could miss a few games, but it does not appear to be a serious injury. He only has four hits in his last 12 games and is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.
