Mon, 25 May 2015 21:47:14 -0700
Fantasy Tip: With the Dodgers' outfield banged up, Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) should continue to take advantage of some extra playing for the foreseeable future. He is a solid mid-priced option at FantasyScore against righties.
Mon, 25 May 2015 14:39:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has been on somewhat of a cold streak as he has not hit a homerun since May 11 and hasn't hit a run in since May 12. Since then he is 4 for 29 with 9 strikeouts. Invest in him at your own risk on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal should be returning in the near future. He may have been given the day off since the Dodgers have a day game. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has played sparingly this year and still has zero homeruns and only one RBI. He isn't worth starting on FantasyScore even at his dirt cheap price.
Mon, 25 May 2015 14:28:22 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Turner ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has three hits in his last four games, but only has one RBI in his last six games. He's become part of a committee at third base for the Dodgers and may only have an impact in NL-only leagues unless Alex Guerrero or Juan Uribe is injured.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes was promoted from the minors when Yasmani Grandal was placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Despite getting the start behind the plate today, expect A.J. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) to get most of the playing time while Grandal is sidelined.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson hit his team leading 12th home run Saturday, May 23, against the San Diego Padres. It was the third career leadoff homer for Pederson. The Dodgers' rookie has nine home runs and 28 strikeouts in 21 games since moving up from the eighth spot in the batting order April 29.
Fantasy Tip: Pederson ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has a five-game hit streak with homers in each of his last two games. Owners are yet to see much of Pederson's speed on the base paths, but his power threat is enough to keep him under regular consideration on FantasyScore.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger pitched eight innings of one-hit baseball Saturday, May 23, against the San Diego Padres. He struck out eight batters and did not yield a run, making him a winner of three straight starts.
Fantasy Tip: Bolsinger ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has been a fantasy rock star in his last two starts, going 14 scoreless innings with as many K's. His spot in the rotation as the fifth starter is looking more secure with every passing inning, and he's now worth an add in mixed leagues. Expect his FantasyScore price to increase before his next start, which should come Wednesday, May 27, against the Atlanta Braves.
Sat, 23 May 2015 14:56:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) should be sidelined for the next week or until he proves his concussion symptoms have disappeared.

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (face) left the game Friday, May 22, against the San Diego Padres when he was struck in his catcher's mask by a bat and a foul ball. C A.J. Ellis replaced him. Grandal will not play Saturday, May 23, but that was already a scheduled day off for him.
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely be all right, but take him out of your lineup for a couple days to be on the safe side. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) won't offer much fantasy value to you.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been hitting stronger lately in the absence of players like Carl Crawford and Yasiel Puig. He could see some more playing time even after Puig returns.
Fri, 22 May 2015 18:25:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like it could still be a while before Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is able to return. If you drafted him in a seasonal league, you have no choice but to continue to stash him.
Fri, 22 May 2015 15:25:25 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Over his last 993 plate appearances, Barmes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .225/.273/.315 slash line. So with Zack Greinke on the hill, there is no reason to target Barmes in any fantasy format Friday. At best, he is a desperation source of cap relief.
Fri, 22 May 2015 15:01:31 -0700
Fantasy Tip: While Van Slyke's ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) numbers this season are excellent, he has hit a minor hiccup of late with just two runs, a home run, six RBI and a .233/.261/.349 slash line dating back to May 2. Consider him a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests until he picks it up again at the dish.
Fri, 22 May 2015 11:59:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been missed in the lineup in the past couple weeks. Monitor his progress and avoid using him in the first game or two back until he works the kinks out of his body.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) has surgery to fix the labrum in his left shoulder Thursday, May 21, and he will not pitch in 2015. However, the chances of him returning in spring training next year are good, according to manager Don Mattingly.
Fantasy Tip: You can safely drop Ryu in all single-year fantasy formats. Mike Bolsinger ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) has excelled in the fifth starting spot for the Blue and has earned a longer stay. However, Brandon Beachy (elbow), who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, could push for a rotation post this summer.
