Yankees | Jose Fernandez an option for Yanks?

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 15:24:43 -0800

The New York Yankees, in addition to the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks, are gathering information on Miami Marlins SP Jose Fernandez, according to source. It remains a long shot that the Marlins complete a trade for Fernandez, but conversations about him are far from dead. A source confirmed that the Marlins asked the Dodgers for a package led by SS Corey Seager, OF Scott Van Slyke and SP Julio Urias, Los Angeles' top pitching prospect. The Marlins have consistently denied reports that they would consider trading Fernandez.

Fantasy Tip: While a blockbuster trade for Fernandez is unlikely, it could happen this week during the winter meetings. Stay tuned. Fernandez showed why he is one of the best young pitchers in the game, successfully returning from Tommy John surgery and remaining dominant. Even if he remains in Miami, he'll be one of the first few pitchers off the board in fantasy drafts.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke has wrist injury

Wed, 07 Oct 2015 18:23:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke (wrist) said he will not be active for the National League Division Series because of a bruised right wrist.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) suffered the initial injury to his wrist Sept. 15, and re-aggravated the injury while playing first base last week after getting brushed by baserunner Marlon Byrd. He is able to throw but can't hit, despite receiving a cortisone injection.

Dodgers | Four lefties out for Dodgers

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:07:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Joc Pederson, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Tuesday, Sept. 29. OF Enrique Hernandez is in center field and hitting leadoff, OF Justin Ruggiano is in left and batting sixth, C A.J. Ellis is catching and hitting seventh and OF Scott Van Slyke is in right field and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: In a matchup of perhaps the best two left-handed pitchers on the planet, none of the reserves starting for the Dodgers tonight should be attractive on FantsayScore as anything other than desperation contrarian picks.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:51:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is not starting Sunday, Sept. 27, against the Colorado Rockies. 1B Scott Van Slyke is batting fourth against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin.

Fantasy Tip: Odds are Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) may have been held out anyway due to a lefty pitcher, but back trouble just cements his spot on the bench for the weekend. Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) doesn't have the numbers to justify the FantasyScore spot.

Dodgers | Handful of Dodgers lefties sitting

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:20:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, OFs Carl Crawford, Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier and C Yasmani Grandal are all out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting leadoff, SS Jimmy Rollins is at shortstop and hitting second, OF Scott Van Slyke is at first base and hitting fifth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and OFs Chris Heisey and Scott Schebler round out the bottom of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to like here on FantasyScore with the overhaul of the L.A. lineup this afternoon against a southpaw. In fact, Corbin ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) makes a nice contrarian play if you're feeling lucky with a weak Dodgers lineup today.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 12:13:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Sunday, Sept. 20. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will play first base and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has just one home run in 84 at-bats since the All-Star break and is only batting .237 against right-handed pitching this year. He is not a great FantasyScore option at this point and should be ignored.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke has hand injury

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 22:36:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (hand) is dealing with a sore hand caused by a cyst, manager Don Mattingly said Tuesday, Sept. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) can be a cheap source of power in FantasyScore when he is in the starting nine.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out of lineup

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 12:35:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Sunday, Sept. 13. OF Scott Van Slyke will bat fifth and play right field.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is batting .280 with two doubles and five RBIs this month and could be a decent FantasyScore value play this afternoon.

Dodgers | LA resting lefty hitters

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 16:18:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, OF Andre Ethier, SS Jimmy Rollins, C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) and OF Joc Pederson are all out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Friday, Sept. 11. 2B Jose Peraza is starting at second and hitting second, OF Scott Van Slyke is in right field and is hitting fifth, SS Corey Seager is at shortstop and batting sixth, C A.J. Ellis is catching and hitting seventh, and OF Chris Heisey is starting in center field and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Seager ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) hits left-handed himself, he's your best option of this bunch on FantasyScore tonight. The heralded rookie prospect is hitting .360 (9-for-25) with four RBI since being called up. Peraza ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) may also be worth a look as a value pick because he's in the two-hole tonight.

Dodgers | No Andre Ethier Thursday

Thu, 03 Sep 2015 15:58:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup Thursday, Sept. 3. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and is hitting seventh against San Diego Padres SP Colin Rea.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a pretty mediocre daily selection tonight against a right-hander in a pitcher's park. Van Slyke has struggled to produce with sporadic playing time, and he's hitting only .225 (23-for-102) with two of his five home runs against righties this year.
