Dodgers | LA discussing Jon Niese

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 14:22:34 -0700

New York Mets SP Jon Niese is a pitcher that the Los Angeles Dodgers are considering, but the Mets and Dodgers have yet to have active discussions, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Niese ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) surely would gain some fantasy value heading to the National League West with a better offensive team backing him in another pitcher-friendly park. However, he'd probably still be nothing more than a matchup play in shallow mixed leagues. If Niese leaves the Mets, they'll likely go back to a normal five-man rotation, too, which would increase the fantasy values of the current rotation members.

Dodgers | Justin Turner on a tear

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:34:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is hitting .342 (27-for-79) with six home runs in the month of June. He will return to the starting lineup Monday, June 29, after resting Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: At a modest price, Turner ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is hard to pass up on FantasyScore. He has a nice matchup tonight in Arizona against Allen Webster, too.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig hitless in return to lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:58:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) returned to the starting lineup and went 0-for-2 with three walks against the Miami Marlins Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Injuries have derailed Puig's ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) season, and he hasn't been able to stay on the field long enough to develop much of a rhythm. He offers plenty of upside, but it is best to wait until he strings together a few solid games before paying his hefty salary at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke extends streak

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:50:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed four hits and struck out six over 7 2/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Miami Marlins Sunday, June 28, and he extended his scoreless streak to 20 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) lowered his major league-leading ERA to 1.58, but he is actually just 1-2 over his last 10 starts thanks to terrible run support. Lack of support aside, Greinke is shutting down every lineup he faces right now, and deserves heavy consideration at FantasyScore whenever he takes the mound.

Dodgers | Justin Turner not in the lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:44:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena Sunday, June 28. 3B Alberto Callaspo will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should play in the next game or two. Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in five of his last eight games but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig back in the lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:43:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) is in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena Sunday, June 28, and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) returns to the lineup after not starting any of the last four games with a hand injury. Puig is a risky option on FantasyScore because of the injury but could be a solid option since he is hitting .323 this month.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw has streak snapped

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 05:30:35 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw had his streak of 225 consecutive starts without losing three games in a row snapped Saturday, June 27, with a 3-2 loss to the Miami Marlins. Kershaw is joined by Mike Mussina, Jim Palmer and Whitey Ford as the only other pitchers to have a streak of at least 225 starts.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw ($9,400, 18.8% of cap) has lost six games before July 1 for the first time in his career, and he's below .500 after June 1 for the first time since 2009. Kershaw owns the highest strikeout rate of his career, and his adequate 3.20 ERA is bested by his 2.11 xFIP. Kershaw hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in a game since May 21, and if he can get some run support, he'll go back to looking as dominant as ever.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig remains sidelined

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 12:23:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) is not in the lineup against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler Saturday, June 27. OF Andre Ethier, who normally plays left field, will bat fifth and play right field. OF Enrique Hernandez will get the start in left field and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown when Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) will be able to return to action. Following a hot start to the season, Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is only batting .197 during the month of June and should be avoided in FantasyScore until he turns things around. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is batting .256 with three homers and eight RBIs in 86 at-bats and is a viable option for owners who need salary cap relief.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson fans 10

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 05:48:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson struck out 10 batters through seven innings while allowing a single run on five hits and a walk during the Dodgers 7-1 win over the Miami Marlins Friday, June 26. Anderson earned his fourth victory of the season in the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson's ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) 89 innings this season are the most he has pitched in one year since the 2010 campaign. He sports respectable ratios (3.13 ERA, 1.29 WHIP), but his win (four) and strikeout (62) columns leave a lot to be desired. He currently should be viewed as a low-end option in mixed leagues and a matchup play at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sitting out vs. Miami

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:58:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C A.J. Ellis is starting behind the plate and batting eight against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been giving way to Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) regularly against left-handed pitchers lately, so it is something to note and look out for going forward. Ellis projects as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday, and the cap relief he provides will likely be his best attribute.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out vs. southpaw

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:51:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting fifth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Either ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has just 25 plate appearances over 20 games against lefties this season, so his lineup absence shouldn't be a surprise. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a nice upside target for FantasyScore players Friday. He has a .865 OPS against southpaws this season, and he is hitting in the heart of the order.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick batting second vs. Fish

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:25:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is batting second against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hit a two-run double Thursday, June 25, and fantasy owners should hope it'll kick-start his offense. He was struggling through a 12-game RBI drought prior with just 3 runs and a .200/.216/.220 slash line. At this point, he is nothing more than a flier for FantasyScore contests, albeit one with upside and the handedness advantage Friday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig remains out

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:16:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Alex Guerrero is starting in left field and batting sixth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) continues to miss time because a callous on his hand opened up, and it is painful for him to swing. While not a serious injury, it continues to keep him out of the lineup and could linger. Expect him back sooner than later, though. Guerrero ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) was off to a torrid start this season, but he is currently mired in a 6-for-36 slump dating back to Thursday, June 4. FantasyScore players should view him as a high-risk, high-reward option Friday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig scratched

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:37:29 -0700

Updating an earlier report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hand) was scratched Thursday, June 25. OF Alex Guerrero shifted to the outfield and 3B Alberto Callaspo is in the lineup hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) isn't much of an option against Jon Lester on FantasyScore today.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins in two-hole Thursday

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:22:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is hitting second against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Rollins ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is definitely looking his age this year (.205-7-18). He's hitting just .214 (9-for-42) with one of his seven home runs against left-handed pitching. He's a candidate to avoid today on FantasyScore.
