Dodgers | Yasiel Puig likely to return Sunday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 00:19:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring), who pinch hit in the team's loss on Friday, July 22, has "a chance" to return Saturday, July 23, but it appears that Sunday, July 24, is more likely.

Fantasy Tip: Puig has been better since returning from the DL (.294-2-12 in 85 ABs) and boasts the kind of talent that makes it hard to cut bait despite modest production.

Dodgers | Bud Norris expected to start Tuesday

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 00:13:08 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Bud Norris is still expected to make his next scheduled start on Tuesday, July 26, against the Tampa Bay Rays despite being used in relief on Friday, July 22, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Norris took the L, his second second in three days, and hasn't pitched particularly well since his shutdown debut with the club on July 1. The Rays could be a good match-up, though, so he has some appeal in deeper leagues this Tuesday.

Dodgers | Brandon McCarthy dominates, departs early

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 00:07:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy (calf) allowed two runs -- one earned -- on one hit in 6 1/3 innings against the St. Louis Cardinals before departing with cramping in his right calf. He walked three and struck out four.

Fantasy Tip: With better run support, McCarthy could be 4-0. As it stands, he's 2-0 with a 1.61 ERA and a 0.72 WHIP. The injury, such as it was, doesn't appear serious, and McCarthy is pitching his way onto rosters in standard fantasy leagues. If you're thin on starters, he's worth adding now.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen picks up fifth blown save

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 00:04:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen allowed a game-tying home run with two outs in the ninth against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, July 22. It was his fifth blow save of the season and second in four appearances since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen has only been scored on in five games this year. Four of those resulted in blown saves. While that number isn't ideal, Jansen has 28 saves and rates as one of the game's best closers.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick streak now at 14

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:49:57 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick hit a solo home run against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, July 22, to extend his hitting streak to 14 games.

Fantasy Tip: During his hitting streak, Kendrick is 23-for-57 (.404) with two home runs, seven RBI and nine runs scored. While his long-term outlook may not be that enticing, Kendrick deserves a spot in your lineup as long as he remains locked in.

Dodgers | Justin Turner just keeps hitting

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:42:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner was 2-for-7 with a solo home run against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, July 22. It was his seventh home run in July and 18th on the season.

Fantasy Tip: At the end of May, Turner was sporting a .225-3-16 line. Ever since: .299-15-40 in 167 ABs. His suddenly explosive power makes Turner a quality starter in pretty any fantasy league at this juncture.

Dodgers | Cory Seager collects seven straight hits

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:24:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Cory Seager was 4-for-7 against the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday, July 22, hitting safely in each of his first four at-bats. Seager had previously hit safely in his final three at-bats against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday, July 21, giving him hits in seven successive ABs.

Fantasy Tip: What more can you say about Seager? He's sporting a .306-17-44 line in his first full season and looks like a lock to win the NL Rookie of the Year (sorry, Trevor Story). Seager is an everyday play in all fantasy leagues.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig not playing Friday

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:20:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 22. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and is batting eighth against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha.

Fantasy Tip: Hamstring problems have already put Puig on the DL once this year, so don't be surprised if he's headed there again. At this point, the disappointment far outweighs the power-speed combination that Puig has failed to deliver for fantasy owners. It's not out of the question to move on in a lot of mixed leagues. Van Slyke isn't very attractive to DFS owners tonight. After all, he's hitting just .191 with no homers and two RBI against righties in 2016.

Dodgers | Corey Seager, Yasmani Grandal return

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:14:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager (illness) and C Yasmani Grandal (illness) are both back in the starting lineup against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Friday, July 22. Seager is hitting second and Grandal slots in at No. 6 in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Seager missed three games with an illness this week but appears fine now. Get him back into all lineups immediately. The young shortstop is an elite fantasy commodity at his position with a .301 average, 17 home runs and 43 RBI. Grandal's overall .206/.321/.425 line looks bad, but he's come on strong in July with a .317 average, six home runs and nine RBI. Consider adding him if he's out there in two-catcher or NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Julio Urias sent to minors

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 13:48:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias was optioned to Class AAA Oklahoma City Friday, July 22. C Austin Barnes was recalled in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers are handling the 19-year-old southpaw with kid gloves, and for good reason. He's shown flashes in his nine starts this year but has a 4.69 ERA and 1.51 WHIP despite fanning 48 in 40 1/3 innings. He could come up for another spot start down the road in the second half or be used out of the bullpen, but his value in seasonal leagues is limited from here on out. He should remain stashed in all dynasty formats, though. Barnes should be ignored, as he'll back up Yasmani Grandal and A.J. Ellis.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal dealing with illness

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 23:08:02 -0700

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (illness) was out Thursday, July 21, due to a stomach virus.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal has a .317-6-9 line this month, and he's a daily consideration when he returns. A.J. Ellis warrants no fantasy consideration in the meantime.

Dodgers | Julio Urias lasts just four innings

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:49:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Julio Urias allowed one run on five hits while striking out four batters over four innings during the Dodgers' 6-3 win over the Washington Nationals Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Urias was lifted after just 77 pitches, which highlights just how cautious the Dodgers are being with their prized prospect. It severely hinders his fantasy upside, and Urias is likely best left to cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues. He's a must own in all keeper/dynasty formats, though.

Dodgers | Justin Turner has monster outing

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:33:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner went 2-for-5 with two home runs and five RBI during the Dodgers' 6-3 win over the Washington Nationals Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Since the calendar flipped to June, Turner has 14 home runs and 39 RBI through 42 games, and he currently sits with a .267/.345/.482 slash line for the season. View him as a strong starter at the hot corner in all fantasy formats going forward, and he's likely undervalued in many leagues.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig exits early vs. Nats

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 14:10:15 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) left the game in the seventh inning with tightness in his right hamstring Thursday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is having the worst season of his career (.698 OPS), and he also can't seem to stay healthy. Remember, he required a stint on the disabled list in June because of a strained left hamstring. It isn't out of the question to cut ties in shallow leagues, as it doesn't appear the promise he flashed early in his career is going to come to fruition in 2016. Stay tuned for updates on his status leading into the weekend.

Dodgers | L.A. likely to land Chris Archer?

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 11:25:21 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers are a good fit for Tampa Bay Rays SP Chris Archer, and an executive that's been talking to the Rays places the odds at "70%" that Archer is traded to Los Angeles.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers front office has ties to the Rays, and the Blue are desperate for starters with Clayton Kershaw, Alex Wood and Hyun-Jin Ryu all injured. Archer's shaky control this year has led to big disappointment. He's sporting a 4.60 ERA and 1.39 WHIP but has shown slow improvements of late. A move to the Dodgers and the NL West would surely make him a candidate for a second-half rebound.
