The latest Howie Kendrick MLB and fantasy baseball news

From -- thru  --


Dodgers | Chase Utley, Joc Pederson resting

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:38:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley and OF Joc Pederson are not in the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays left-handed SP Drew Smyly Wednesday, May 4. 2B Howie Kendrick is at the keystone and is hitting fifth, while OF Trayce Thompson starts in center field and is batting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Kendrick and Thompson had big games in the win over the Rays last night, so those in daily games could elect to roll the dice and hope they stay hot. Other than big nights Tuesday, Kendrick and Thompson haven't done a whole lot with the bats. The matchup against Smyly, who's been very strong, isn't a kind one, though.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick comes alive

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:43:15 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick had four hits and two RBI Tuesday, May 3. It was his first runs batted in this season, which came in 59 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is hitting .197 after lashing one-third of his season's hit total Tuesday. If he keeps it up, he's worth returning to your lineups.

Dodgers | Chase Utley not in Tuesday lineup

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:05:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley is out of the starting lineup Tuesday, May 3, against the Tampa Bay Rays. 2B Howie Kendrick is batting fifth against Rays SP Matt Moore, and DH Enrique Hernandez has the leadoff spot where Utley usually bats.

Fantasy Tip: Utley, a lefty, is out likely due to the lefty matchup with Moore. Kendrick carries little fantasy value (.063 in 17 at-bats in the past week), and Hernandez (.067) is similarly struggling. Leave those hitters out of your lineups.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig returns after a day off

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:24:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is in the lineup Sunday, May 01, against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz and will bat leadoff. The Dodgers will get a host of other regulars a day off, however, as 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal, OF Carl Crawford and OF Joc Pederson are not starting. In their place, OF Enrique Hernandez will occupy left field and bat second, 2B/3B Howie Kendrick will play second base and hit fifth, OF Trayce Thompson will spell Pederson in center and bat sixth, and C A.J. Ellis will catch and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is mired in a 7-for-51 slump since the middle of April following a hot start and is probably needs to be benched in most leagues for now, although manager Dave Roberts is obviously showing a lot of faith in his struggling slugger by batting him leadoff today. Utley is getting a rest day and has cooled slightly after batting over .300 for most of April, but he should be inserted back in lineups Tuesday when the Dodgers hit the road to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick the odd-man out

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 14:59:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. 2B Chase Utley is starting at the keystone and hitting leadoff against San Diego Padres SP Cesar Vargas.

Fantasy Tip: Utley is off to a fine start, hitting .307 with five RBI in 75 at-bats. As long as he stays hot, Kendrick will likely lose playing time against right-handed pitchers, especially since he's only hitting .135/.151/.135. It's becoming harder to justify holding Kendrick in mixed affairs. Utley is a fine selection for daily rosters tonight against Vargas, who is making just his second major league start and first on the road.

Dodgers | Justin Turner with a day off

Thu, 28 Apr 2016 14:59:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 28. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at the hot corner and is hitting seventh against Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is a daily pick tonight that you'll want to avoid. He's facing one of the more electric arms in the big leagues, and Kendrick comes into the game with a meager slash line of .143/.160/.143 with no homers or RBI in 49 at-bats.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick out of lineup

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 15:45:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26. 2B Chase Utley is starting at second base and is batting leadoff against Miami Marlins SP Tom Koehler.

Fantasy Tip: With Carl Crawford back from the DL, Kendrick could see even less playing time now as he splits time between left field and second base. That'll obviously hurt his value in mixed leagues, but he still has usefulness across most counting categories when he's in the lineup for the Blue.

Dodgers | Justin Turner out of the lineup

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 12:31:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner was not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Jordan Lyles Sunday, April 24. 2B Howie Kendrick will start at third base, while OF Trayce Thompson will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has recorded only one hit in his last seven games, so owners should be able to find better options to use for their starting lineups.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick hitting fifth

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:07:24 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is hitting fifth Saturday, April 23, against Colorado Rockies SP Tyler Chatwood.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick is just 1-for-15 (.067) the last seven days. He has a good chance to break out in Coors Field today and is worth the midrange flyer.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sitting out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 07:35:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner and 2B Howie Kendrick are out of the lineup Thursday, April 21. OF Trayce Thompson is hitting fifth, and 3B Charlie Culberson is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson is hitting .308 and is a good low-end flyer against Matt Wisler. Culberson doesn't possess the DFS clout for the start, though.
