Dodgers | Carl Crawford out Wednesday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 15:36:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, April 22. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and hitting fifth in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) surely won't be a popular daily pick tonight against Bumgarner, but he could help you get ahead of your competition at FantasyScore. Besides, Van Slyke hit .315 (34-for-108) with eight of his 11 home runs against lefties in 2014, so he's not a terrible pick. He's also 4-for-13 with four walks in his career against Bumgarner.

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 11:20:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (illness) is not in the starting lineup against the Colorado Rockies Sunday, April 19, because of flu-like symptoms. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in his place in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will miss his second consecutive start due to illness but could be back in action when the team begins their road trip Tuesday, April 21. Van Slyke ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is a career .300 hitter against Rockies pitching and makes a good sleeper option in FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez gets night off

Tue, 12 Aug 2014 12:37:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (rest) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 12, against the Atlanta Braves. OF Scott Van Slyke is batting fourth and playing first base.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Minor has struggled mightily (7.34 ERA) over his last seven starts, which makes Van Slyke an excellent target in daily games. Gonzalez has five consecutive multi-hit games, so sitting against the struggling Minor is a bit of a surprise, although it is a lefty-lefty matchup.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford becoming everyday LF

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 15:39:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is back in left field over OF Andre Ethier Monday, Aug. 11. Ethier has started only three of the team's last 17 games. However Crawford has hit just .196 during that stretch. "Carl, before he got hurt, was probably swinging the bat better than anyone we had," manager Don Mattingly said. "I feel like Carl's going to get back to that." Mattingly also prefers Crawford's speed and versatility over Ethier. OF Scott Van Slyke has been drawing most of the starts in left field when the team faces a left-hander.

Fantasy Tip: More playing time for Crawford will make him appeal to those in deep mixed leagues, but not if he continues to stink it up at the plate. Crawford definitely is more intriguing because of his speed than Ethier. Ethier should only be owned in NL-only leagues right now.
