Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Monday, May 4, but manager Don Mattingly said Ryu didn't have a setback. Ryu has been out since spring training with a left shoulder impingement. He'll throw to hitters later this week, but the team doesn't expect him back before early June.
Fantasy Tip: With Ryu out until at least early June, Carlos Frias ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has jumped into the starting rotation and will make another start this week. Frias could stick in the rotation long term if he continues to pitch well, which would make him ownable in NL-only and deep mixed leagues if you need rotation help. Only play him in the right matchups as a cheap FantasyScore option.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Ryu ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) in a DL roster slot in the majority of formats and continue to check back for updates on his progress. Ryu pitches for a solid ball team, and over 344 innings in his career, he has a respectable 3.17 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 7.7 K/9.
Mon, 04 May 2015 14:38:46 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Not only do Rollins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Uribe ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) have bad numbers against Lohse, but both players haven't gotten off to strong starts in 2015. They're both weak plays tonight at FantasyScore.
Mon, 04 May 2015 14:33:43 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It makes perfect sense to pay up for Gonzalez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) at FantasyScore tonight.
Mon, 04 May 2015 12:44:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: When given an opportunity, Van Slyke ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) has played extremely well this season. He has gone 13-for-34 (.382 batting average) with five runs and nine RBI. Opposing starter Kyle Lohse has allowed fewer than four runs in just one of five starts this season, so Van Slyke projects as a solid low-price play for FantasyScore contests Monday.
Mon, 04 May 2015 12:33:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Lind ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) in daily contests Monday. The Brewers are facing southpaw Clayton Kershaw, so it is a good time to give left-handed hitting Lind a night off. Rogers ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) cannot be started with confidence in FantasyScore contests against Kershaw, either.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Puig's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) status and progress through his rehab assignment and look out for an official return date. He has nice upside at his cap hit for FantasyScore players, and Puig is surrounded by solid bats in a strong lineup. It might be time for seasonal players to accept injuries as part of the package with Puig, though.

Fantasy Tip: It was also the second consecutive game Pederson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) led off for the Dodgers, after he spent all season batting sixth or lower. He carried plenty of hype entering the season and his solid run in spring training helped. Pederson is currently sporting a .447 on-base percentage, which is excellent for points leagues and daily contests. Add his recent power surge, and Pederson should be on your FantasyScore radar.

Fantasy Tip: Although Jansen may have to wait a bit to close games, he is still worth owning in all fantasy formats. He will start logging saves again eventually, and in the meantime, his strikeout potential makes him worth keeping inserting in your lineup when he returns.
Fri, 01 May 2015 18:19:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) had been heating up when he went down with the hamstring injury, but when he returns, it is still a good idea to wait until he has a game or two under his belt before paying for him at FantasyScore.
Fri, 01 May 2015 15:23:44 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Turner ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday. He has hit .313 over his last 521 at-bats, and hitting behind Adrian Gonzalez helps, too. The 36-year-old Uribe ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is in danger of losing additional playing time, and he is best ignored in the majority of fantasy formats.
Fri, 01 May 2015 15:18:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is locked in at the plate this season with a .423 average (11-for-26), five home runs and 13 RBI. He is an excellent FantasyScore option given the lack of upside at second base around his price point.
Fri, 01 May 2015 14:14:10 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Continue to stash Ryu ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) in a DL roster slot in the majority of formats and check back for updates. Over 344 innings in his career, Ryu has a respectable 3.17 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 7.7 K/9, and pitching for a strong team helps, too.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson currently leads the majors with a 22.1% walk rate at age 23. He also has the third best on-base percentage in the league at .461. However, he also ranks 19th in strikeout rate, but he was moved to the leadoff spot Wednesday, April 29. Pederson currently has a slash line of .298/.461/.596 on the year.
Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is off to a great start and could see his fantasy value skyrocket even more with the move to leadoff of a potent lineup. At FantasyScore, he's much more attractive batting leadoff, especially since it should give him more opportunities to run.
Fri, 01 May 2015 09:49:08 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Seager torched Double-A with a .375-5-15 line and has been spending time at third base. He is likely on the cusp of a callup at any time.
