Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (glute) is not expected to make his next scheduled start after suffering a right gluteus muscle strain during his start Wednesday, Aug. 13, according to manager Don Mattingly. SPs Roberto Hernandez and Kevin Correia are options to start if Ryu is not able to pitch.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known if Ryu will need to be placed on the disabled list because of the injury. Hernandez and Correia probably do not have much value outside NL-only leagues.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (hip) has a torn labrum and cysts in his left hip that won't heal without surgery. Beckett's teammates are saying he'll miss the rest of the year, and he might decide to retire.
Fantasy Tip: Ouch. Sad news for one of baseball's veteran pitchers. It might be wise to wait for an official announcement from the team that he'll miss the rest of the year, but you can safely drop him in shallow formats, at least. Roberto Hernandez's stock will go up a bit more now.

The Los Angeles Dodgers placed SP Josh Beckett (hip) on the 15-day disabled list with a left hip impingement Friday, Aug. 8, and activated SP Roberto Hernandez to the active roster in a corresponding move. The DL stint is retroactive to Aug. 4.
Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers' trade for Hernandez makes more sense now. Beckett, given his slow-healing ways and extensive injury history, could be out for an extended period. Hernandez isn't anything special, but his value will increase on a better squad. Consider starting him based on matchups.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Josh Beckett (hip) had an MRI on his hip and will likely be placed on the disabled list. SP Roberto Hernandez is pitching in his place Friday, Aug. 8.
Fantasy Tip: This could be a long-term injury, so prepare to be without Beckett for the foreseeable future. Check back for further updates. Hernandez's fantasy value benefits significantly, and he is an option in deep mixed leagues. Hernandez should be owned in all NL-only formats. Although, Friday's start against the Milwaukee Brewers is unfavorable.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Roberto Hernandez said he will start Friday, Aug. 8, against the Milwaukee Brewers. SP Josh Beckett was originally scheduled to pitch Friday.
Fantasy Tip: Check back for updates on Beckett's status. He is likely just being skipped this rotation or being pushed back a few days. The Brewers are an unfavorable matchup for Hernandez.

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired SP Roberto Hernandez from the Philadelphia Phillies Thursday, Aug. 7, in exchange for two players to be named.
Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers' starting rotation is full, so Hernandez will presumably provide rotation depth and a long reliever. Unless he's starting, Hernandez has zero fantasy value.
