Dodgers | Joel Peralta placed on disabled list

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 12:16:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Los Angeles Dodgers have placed RP Joel Peralta (neck) on the 15-day disabled list because of a right neck strain.

Fantasy Tip: Peralta had served as the Dodgers' closer in the absence of Kenley Jansen (foot), who is not expected to return until the middle of next month. Yimi Garcia now appears to be the team's go-to guy in the ninth inning, although Juan Nicasio and Chris Hatcher could also be in the mix for save opportunities.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig placed on disabled list

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 12:07:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained hamstring. It marks the first time in his career that Puig has landed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Expect OF Andre Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to get the bulk of the playing time in right field while Puig is sidelined, although OF Scott Van Slyke ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see additional at-bats as well. Manager Don Mattingly said he believed Puig could play again in four or five days but he was worried that the odds of him suffering another setback immediately after returning were too great.

Dodgers | Brandon McCarthy to undergo MRI exam

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 11:33:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brandon McCarthy (elbow) left his start against the San Diego Padres Saturday, April 25, in the sixth inning, due to tightness in his right elbow. After the game, he admitted to reporters that he has been bothered by elbow issues for more than a week and said he should have left the game in the second inning. McCarthy is scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Monday, April 27.

Fantasy Tip: McCarthy ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is expected to miss at least one start and could wind up on the disabled list depending on what the MRI exam results reveal.

Dodgers | Scott Baker expected to start

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 05:32:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Scott Baker is expected to start Sunday, April 26, against the San Diego Padres. Baker will be making his first start of the season at the major league level.

Fantasy Tip: Baker represents too much risk to start Sunday. The Dodgers are just biding their time until SP Hyun-Jin Ryu ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) (shoulder) returns from the disabled list. Baker and his career 4.25 ERA should be left alone.

Dodgers | Yimi Garcia could close games

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 15:28:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Yimi Garcia could figure into save situations if RP Joel Peralta (back, arm) heads to the disabled list Sunday, April 26.

Fantasy Tip: Garcia has been filthy with a 0.93 ERA and 16 K's in 9 2/3 innings. He needs to be added in most mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Joel Peralta likely for DL

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 15:26:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Joel Peralta (back, arm) is likely headed to the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 26. He said he was dealing with a dead-arm phase that led to back spasms.

Fantasy Tip: Yimi Garcia and Juan Nicasio could figure into save situations until Peralta and/or Kenley Jansen return. Garcia has been filthy with 16 K's in 9 2/3 innings and a 0.93 ERA. He's the best bet.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke pitches well Friday

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 05:17:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke pitched seven scoreless innings against the San Diego Padres Friday, April 24, to pick up his third win of the season. Greinke struck out seven batters and walked three during the outing.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) has started the 2015 season on a strong note with a 1.35 ERA over the first four games. He has struck out 21 batters in 26 2/3 innings during that span. Greinke will face the San Francisco Giants in his next start and should be a solid starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig has hamstring issues

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 00:46:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) left the game against the San Diego Padres on Friday, April 24, due to hamstring issues and not his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) could be on the shelf for a small stretch if his hamstring injury is serious, so keep an eye on this situation. You obviously may want to go with other outfielders even if Puig plays because it is hard to tell how he will do.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig hit in knee

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 19:19:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (knee) was hit in the knee by a 96 mph from San Diego Padres SP Andrew Cashner Friday, April 24, but he Puig stayed in the game after remaining on the ground for a couple of minutes.

Fantasy Tip: While it is a good sign that Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) was able to stay in the game, make sure to pay close attention to his status in the coming days before using him at FantasyScore in case the knee swells up and he is forced to take a game or two off.

Dodgers | Zack Greinke loves Petco Park

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:31:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke will start on the road against the San Diego Padres Friday, April 24, and he is 2-0 with a 1.74 ERA in five career starts at Petco Park.

Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($8,100, 16.2% of cap) allowed one earned run on two hits in a home start against the Padres April 7, and he has been dominant in San Diego. If you pay up for a starter at FantasyScore Friday, make sure it's Greinke.

Dodgers | Alex Guerrero delivers at the plate

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:20:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Alex Guerrero went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and single in a 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants Thursday, April 23, and he is hitting .474 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 19 at-bats this year.

Fantasy Tip: Although Juan Uribe ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has returned from injury and is expected to remain the primary starter at third base, Guerrero ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has shown plenty of offensive upside. When he does start, he is a great value play at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen to throw bullpen

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 16:52:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen (foot) said he will throw a bullpen session Saturday, April 25, and then throw a simulated game Tuesday, April 28. He'll go on a minor league rehab assignment after that if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Jansen will immediately return to the Dodgers' closing role when fully healthy, especially after the Dodgers' bullpen imploded Thursday. Until Jansen's return, Joel Peralta is the Blue reliever to own in all formats for his short-term window for save opportunities.

Dodgers | A.J. Ellis available

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:59:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C A.J. Ellis (hand) is available off the bench and was able to throw Thursday, April 23, after X-rays on his hand came back negative.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has lost considerable playing time to Yasmani Grandal to open the 2015 season, and he's not of much use to FantasyScore gamers. Ellis really is only worth owning in deep NL-only leagues at this point.

Dodgers | Juan Uribe resting vs. Giants

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:54:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Juan Uribe is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 2B Alex Guerrero is starting at the hot corner and hitting seventh in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) hit his second pinch-hit home run of the season last night in a loss, and he has three long balls on the year, to go along with a .438 batting average (7-for-16). He has the pop to turn heads at FantasyScore, and his low price could really pay off Thursday against the struggling Vogelsong.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins out Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:50:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 2B Justin Turner is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) won't turn heads in typical fantasy baseball leagues, but he should tip the scales a bit Thursday at FantasyScore as a cheap flyer. Vogelsong (0-1, 10.45 ERA, 2.81 WHIP) is off to a horrendous start to the season.
