Dodgers | Howie Kendrick sitting vs. Mets

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 13:21:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 23. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at second base and batting seventh against New York Mets SP Bartolo Colon Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. He is receiving a night off, but the second baseman is also currently slumping through July with a .265/.301/.625 slash line. FantasyScore players should view Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) as a potential source of cap relief Thursday.

Dodgers | LAD will try to re-sign Howie Kendrick

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:35:09 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers are expected to try to re-sign 2B Howie Kendrick, who is a free agent after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200; or 8.4% of cap) is a player likely to garner plenty of interest if he hits the open market. Right now, he garners plenty of interest from FantasyScore players, as he has a .730 OPS against left-handed pitching and an even better .766 OPS against right-handers.

Cubs | Chicago hungry for Howie Kendrick

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:34:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is expected to be pursued by the Chicago Cubs in the offseason, according to sources. Cubs manager Joe Maddon was a bench coach with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim when Kendrick was a minor leaguer in the organization.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick still has a little left in the tank. At $4,200 (or 8.4% of cap) right now, Kendrick is a decent mid-level value in FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick set for good matchup

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 15:53:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is 8-for-15 with a home run and two RBI in his career against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa, who he faces Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) remains moderately priced on FantasyScore and continues to be a successful value pick with a .289 average (82-for-284) and six home runs and 32 RBI this year. He's not a bad click tonight in a hitter's park and against a pitcher that has been beat up by the Dodgers this year.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick batting second vs. Fish

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 12:25:39 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is batting second against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hit a two-run double Thursday, June 25, and fantasy owners should hope it'll kick-start his offense. He was struggling through a 12-game RBI drought prior with just 3 runs and a .200/.216/.220 slash line. At this point, he is nothing more than a flier for FantasyScore contests, albeit one with upside and the handedness advantage Friday.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick sitting vs. Cubs

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:27:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at second base and leading off against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. He has hit a road block in June and sports an underwhelming .244/.272/.333 slash line during the month. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is an upside source of cap relief hitting atop the lineup for FantasyScore players Wednesday.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick looks strong in win

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 05:17:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick homered and singled in a 3-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday, June 9. It was his second start since coming back from knee issues.

Fantasy Tip: This should be your cue to take Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) off the leash and let him run free. In short, go ahead and play Kendrick in your FantasyScore lineups as he appears to be fine following his DL stint.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick returns to the lineup

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 15:25:05 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (knee) is batting fourth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Monday, June 8.

Fantasy Tip: Consider Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore option Monday. He pinch hit Sunday, June 7, but last started Wednesday, June 3. And while there is upside, he carries a mid-range price and there are lots of solid second base options Monday.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick could return Monday

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 00:04:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (knee) could be back in the lineup as soon as Monday, June 8, after battling a sprained right knee.

Fantasy Tip: Kendrick ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has been out for several games, but he was available for pinch-hit duties. Enrique Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has done well in Kendrick's absence, but the team wants to give Kendrick the first crack at second base if healthy.

Dodgers | Howie Kendrick out Sunday

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 13:53:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Howie Kendrick (knee) is out of the lineup again on Sunday, June 7, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Enrique Hernandez is at second base once again and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) remains a solid play as long as Kendrick is sidelined, especially for the low price. He has a .360 average in the last week and can hit for average and power.
