Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) is a player likely to garner plenty of interest if he hits the open market. Right now, he garners plenty of interest from FantasyScore players, as he has a .730 OPS against left-handed pitching and an even better .766 OPS against right-handers.

Fantasy Tip: At the age of 36, Rollins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is definitely showing his age, at least at the plate. He's hitting only .208 (60-for-289) with seven home runs and 24 RBI. There's no guarantee that Rollins will be back with the Dodgers, either, with Corey Seager knocking on the door at shortstop. Rollins is unlikely to be an option in shallow mixed drafts next spring.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) left the game Sunday, July 5, after he was hit by a pitch on the hand. Against the Phillies, it is unlikely the Dodgers would start him if he wasn't 100%, so FantasyScore and seasonal players shouldn't fret over his health. Gonzalez remains and excellent play in all formats.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia hasn't pitched more than two innings during an appearance all season, so it is unlikely he lasts much longer than three innings. Eric Surkamp was supposed to make the start, but the Dodgers have switched it up.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Carlos Frias (back) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with right lower back tightness Sunday, July 5. RP Daniel Coulombe was recalled from the minors in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Frias ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) had been inconsistent of late after a nice start with the Dodgers this year. It's unknown who will take Frias' spot in the starting rotation, so stay tuned. There's no need to hang onto Frias in shallow mixed leagues if you had owned him.

Fantasy Tip: A-Gone ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) will probably have X-rays taken and may miss a day or two if all checks out. Keep an eye out for updates. Alex Guerrero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) should fill in and flashed some power early this season. He's a possible plug-and-play option on FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 13:02:56 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is hitting .313 overall this season, including a .348 mark at Dodger Stadium. However, he is only batting .146 versus lefties, so you may want to avoid using him this afternoon in FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 13:01:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rollins ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is getting a simple day off, so remove him from the lineup accordingly. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 3-for-7 in his past two games and is worth a flyer in FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:52:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has struggled of late, going 4-for-22 in his last 10 contests. However, he is batting .308 at Dodger Stadium and .273 versus lefties, so he merits some consideration in FantasyScore if you're looking for an inexpensive outfielder.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:50:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) enters play batting .181 for the season and just .139 at home. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 20:19:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Closer Kenley Jansen had appeared in seven of the previous 10 games and had allowed a run in three straight, so it was likely just a night off due to the heavy workload. Jansen remains an elite fantasy closer, and he owns a 1.93 ERA and has 32 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 20:14:00 -0700
Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed four hits and struck out four over seven scoreless innings in a win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 4, and he has not allowed a run in his last 27 2/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) now leads the majors with a 1.48 ERA, and he has allowed one run or less in 10 of his last 12 starts. He is worth paying up for at FantasyScore whenever he takes the mound.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:18:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has a tough matchup, but he has a .294-2-5 line the last seven days. He's a mid-to-upper tier catcher on FantasyScore.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:17:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) faces the daunting task of Matt Harvey today. His .233-1-10 line doesn't give much reason for hope on FantasyScore.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:07:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't panic, but it is the third consecutive game Jansen allowed an earned run, especially because he only allowed a single earned run over his previous 15 appearances. Still, Jansen is an elite closer who boasts a 1.93 ERA, 1.21 FIP, 0.59 WHIP and 15.4 K/9. He'll have a long leash on the ninth inning.
