Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw pitched seven scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts to earn his third win of the season against the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, May 26. Kershaw allowed four hits and no walks in the outing.
Fantasy Tip: All reports from the Dodgers and Kershaw ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) were positive, it was just the stats which left a lot to be desired. After all, Kershaw only lost three games all year in 2014, and he already has three this season. If there was ever a legitimate buy-low window, it is likely closed now. Continue to view him as a fantasy ace and top-tier starter. FantasyScore players can start Kershaw with confidence in nearly all matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,900, 97.8% of cap) has been hitting his way into a full-time role with the Dodgers, and he entered Tuesday's game with home runs in two straight outings. If Guerrero is unowned in your league, he must be added.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will receive major-league pitching in the deal that will send 3B Juan Uribe to the Atlanta Braves for 3B Alberto Callaspo Tuesday, May 26. SP Trevor Cahill and/or SP Eric Stults are likely involved.
Fantasy Tip: Neither pitcher has been impressive this season but with increased opportunities for wins in Los Angeles, they could hold FantasyScore value when facing a good matchup.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have acquired 3B Alberto Callaspo from the Atlanta Braves Tuesday, May 26, according to sources. It's a six-player deal in which 3B Juan Uribe would go to Atlanta. Callaspo was pulled from Tuesday's game and the deal is done pending league approval.
Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) will likely split time at third base with Alex Guerrero in L.A. Callaspo is worth a speculative add in deep NL-only leagues, and he'll now have sneaky value on FantasyScore as a part of the dangerous Dodgers lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has already hit eight home runs in just 86 plate appearances, thanks to an otherworldly .370 ISO. Guerrero has hit home runs in two straight games coming into this one, and he's an excellent FantasyScore option in any kind of contest.

Fantasy Tip: There remains no timetable for Puig's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) return or date to go on a minor league rehab assignment. You'll have to remain patient if you own him. In the meantime, Andre Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) continues to prove his fantasy worth as a value pick at FantasyScore when facing right-handed pitchers.

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (head) should return from his stint on the 7-day disabled list Saturday, May 30, against the St. Louis Cardinals, if everything goes well in his three minor league rehab games.
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) was hitting well enough before the injury to warrant regular fantasy play. Provided he looks fine during his rehab stint, consider him a safe play in two-catcher leagues and a streamer for daily gamers.
Mon, 25 May 2015 21:47:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With the Dodgers' outfield banged up, Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) should continue to take advantage of some extra playing for the foreseeable future. He is a solid mid-priced option at FantasyScore against righties.
Mon, 25 May 2015 14:39:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been on somewhat of a cold streak as he has not hit a homerun since May 11 and hasn't hit a run in since May 12. Since then he is 4 for 29 with 9 strikeouts. Invest in him at your own risk on FantasyScore.
Mon, 25 May 2015 14:34:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grandal should be returning in the near future. He may have been given the day off since the Dodgers have a day game. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has played sparingly this year and still has zero homeruns and only one RBI. He isn't worth starting on FantasyScore even at his dirt cheap price.
Mon, 25 May 2015 14:28:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Turner ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has three hits in his last four games, but only has one RBI in his last six games. He's become part of a committee at third base for the Dodgers and may only have an impact in NL-only leagues unless Alex Guerrero or Juan Uribe is injured.
Sun, 24 May 2015 12:57:52 -0700
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.

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.

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