Dodgers | LAD will try to re-sign Howie Kendrick

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:35:09 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to try to re-sign 2B Howie Kendrick, who is a free agent after the season.

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.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins plans to play next year

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 16:07:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins said he plans on playing another season.

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.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez starting vs. Philly

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 15:23:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (hand) is batting fourth against Philadelphia Phillies SP Sean O'Sullivan Monday, July 6.

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.

Dodgers | Yimi Garcia first up in bullpen game

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 14:17:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Yimi Garcia is starting against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, June 6. It is expected to be a bullpen game.

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.

Dodgers | Carlos Frias lands on DL

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 09:38:46 -0700

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.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez exits

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 05:47:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (hand) left the game after he was hit on the hand by a pitch Sunday, July 5.

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.

Dodgers | Justin Turner back in lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 13:02:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is back in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 5, batting third.

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.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins not in Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 13:01:41 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 5. SS Enrique Hernandez is batting leadoff.

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.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:52:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 5. OF Scott Van Slyke will bat sixth and play left field.

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.

Dodgers | A.J. Ellis catching Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:50:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C A.J. Ellis will start against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 5. C Yasmani Grandal is getting a scheduled day off.

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.

Dodgers | J.P. Howell picks up save

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 20:19:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP J.P. Howell recorded the final out in a 4-3 win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 4, to log his first save of the season.

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.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke blanks Mets

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.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal hitting cleanup

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:18:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is hitting cleanup Saturday, July 4, against New York Mets SP Matt Harvey.

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.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out of lineup

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:17:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is out of the lineup Saturday, July 4, with 3B Alberto Callaspo in his spot.

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.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen takes the loss

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:07:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen allowed a sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth inning to the New York Mets and was charged with the loss Friday, July 3.

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.
