Dodgers | Carl Crawford not starting NLDS Game 4

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 12:35:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is out of the starting lineup for Game 4 of the National League Division Series Tuesday, Oct. 13, against the New York Mets. OF Justin Ruggiano is batting eighth against Mets SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a victim of the left vs. left matchup that Matz would have provided. Ruggiano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a .301-5-11 hitter against lefties, so he may be a good bet if you're looking to save a little cap money.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sit out

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 16:17:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson and OF Andre Ethier are out of the lineup Saturday, Oct. 3, against a left-handed starter. OF Enrique Hernandez is leading off, and OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a great start against lefty Robbie Erlin as he has a .427-4-16 split against lefties. Ruggiano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) hits lefties to a .309-5-11 clip this year, and he's a low-end flyer on FantasyScore.

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 | 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 | Carl Crawford, Justin Ruggiano out

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 16:48:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Carl Crawford and Justin Ruggiano are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers have been using a number of outfield combinations of late, and it is a daily guessing game who manager Don Mattingly will start. FantasyScore players will want to check the lineup notes before locking any of Crawford ($3,600, 7.2% of cap), Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), Andre Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap), Scott Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) or Joc Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in their lineups. In seasonal formats, all five are low-end owns due to their inconsistent playing time.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford both out

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 16:35:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford (hamstring) are both out against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Tuesday, Sept. 15. OF Justin Ruggiano is starting in left field and hitting leadoff, while OF Chris Heisey is starting in right and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Both Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Heisey ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are deep sleepers on FantasyScore, but Ruggiano has more appeal while hitting atop a potent Dodgers lineup. Rusin is a solid matchup for the Dodgers all around.

Dodgers | Justin Ruggiano playing left field

Sun, 13 Sep 2015 12:33:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Justin Ruggiano will bat leadoff and play left field against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin Sunday, Sept. 13. OF Carl Crawford is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 6-for-16 with three homers and 10 RBIs this month and makes an excellent source of productive cap relief in FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Justin Ruggiano hits grand slam

Sat, 12 Sep 2015 06:14:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Justin Ruggiano went 1-for-4 with one home run and four RBI against the Arizona Diamondbacks Friday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) has not seen a lot of playing time since joining the Dodgers and probably will see most of his time as a pinch hitter for the rest of the season. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use.

Dodgers | Justin Ruggiano added by LAD

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 22:48:07 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired OF Justin Ruggiano from the Seattle Mariners Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano can play all three outfield positions, but he is likely to serve in a reserve role. FantasyScore players will only want to use him if he starts and faces a favorable matchup.

Mariners | Justin Ruggiano designated

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 18:20:57 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Justin Ruggiano was designated for assignment prior to the series opener against the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, June 4. The move was made to clear space for the return of C Jesus Sucre from Class AAA Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: Ruggiano should be dropped in all leagues. In the outside chance the Mariners are able to work out a trade with another team, Ruggiano may be able to gain some worth in a different situation.
