Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke's injury not serious

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 11:38:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (back) isn't dealing with any major structural damage in his back after undergoing an MRI exam, according to manager Don Mattingly. Van Slyke was put on the disabled list with mid-back inflammation. He missed four games with back pain before playing over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: With Van Slyke out, Alex Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should be in the lineup regularly, either in left field or somewhere in the infield. With nine home runs in 93 at-bats, Guerrero can be a fine value pick on FantasyScore in the right matchups.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig close to rehab assignment

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 11:36:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is currently rehabbing in Arizona and is expected to start a minor league rehab assignment later this week. Puig could come off the disabled list at some time next week.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has had several setbacks in his return from a hamstring ailment, but he's close to returning again if he can get through a rehab assignment this weekend. He should go right back to being a strong option on FantasyScore when he's back. Puig's return will hurt the value of Andre Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), who has been a very effective value play against right-handed hurlers.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke to DL

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 10:05:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (back) was placed on the disabled list with a back issue Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: With Van Slyke out, Alex Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) should continue to see regular playing time, and he's a nice value pick in the right matchups for his power stroke. Enrique Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Chris Heisey could see starts in utility roles.

Dodgers | Juan Nicasio starting first game

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:49:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Juan Nicasio will make a spot start in Game 1 of the team's doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, June 2.

Fantasy Tip: It'll be a bullpen game for the Blue in the first game of the twin bill. Unfortunately you won't be able to stack any Rockies hitters in this early contest on FantasyScore. And in the night cap, they face the tough Zack Greinke.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not catching in Game 1

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:46:57 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher for Game 1 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, June 1. C Austin Barnes is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes won't be available on FantasyScore to use as a deep sleeper in Game 1 of the doubleheader.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins out in first game

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:44:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher in Game 1 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, June 2. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at the 6 and hitting seventh in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Game 1 of this doubleheader won't be available on FantasyScore, so Hernandez can be ignored.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out in Game 1

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 09:41:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against a left-handed pitcher in Game 1 of the team's doubleheader Tuesday, June 2. OF Chris Heisey is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa.

Fantasy Tip: Heisey won't be available on FantasyScore for the first game of this doubleheader, and he would've been a player to avoid anyway.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig runs Monday

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:59:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) ran at close to 100% intensity Monday, June 1.

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.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford to 60-day DL

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:06:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (oblique) was moved to the 60-day disabled list Monday, June 1.

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.

Dodgers | Enrique Hernandez starting Monday

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:57:17 -0700

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.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick back in cleanup spot

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:51:23 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is hitting cleanup against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick Monday, June 1, for the third straight game. 1B Adrian Gonzalez moves to the three-hole.

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.

Dodgers | Joc Pederson in rare company

Sun, 31 May 2015 18:21:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 3-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals, and his 13 home runs through May are tied for the second most by a rookie in history.

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.

Dodgers | Carlos Frias bounces back

Sun, 31 May 2015 03:57:38 -0700

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.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal homers in first game back

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.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig nearing rehab assignment

Sat, 30 May 2015 15:18:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) could begin a rehab assignment late next week. He has begun running in the infield.

Fantasy Tip: Puig still probably has two weeks of hurdles to cross before returning. Keep him stashed on your DL.
