Dodgers | Three LAD starters to throw sim games

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:42:34 -0700

Updating previous reports, Los Angeles Dodgers SPs Clayton Kershaw (back) and Alex Wood (elbow) are each scheduled to throw approximately four innings or 60 pitches during simulated games Saturday, July 16. SP Brett Anderson (back) will throw a simulated game using the same guidelines Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: If all goes well for the three southpaws, Kershaw should be back by the end of the month, with Wood and Anderson possibly returning sometime in August. Kershaw should be stashed in all fantasy formats, while Wood and Anderson are worth keeping tabs on in NL-only and cavernous mixed seasonal leagues.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson throws Friday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 18:17:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) threw approximately 50 pitches in a bullpen session Friday, July 8, and said things went well. It marked the second time this week he had thrown a session.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has not pitched at all this season but could return to the majors next month in a best-case scenario. The 28-year-old left-hander's progress is worth monitoring in NL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson could return in August

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 10:19:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) could return in mid-August, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is a long ways off, and there's no guarantee he'll be in peak condition when he rejoins the Dodgers' pitching staff. That makes him unlikely to make much of a fantasy impact down the stretch.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson throws bullpen

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 16:38:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) threw his first bullpen session Tuesday, July 5, since he had surgery on his back in March.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers could use some rotation help, but Anderson still has a ways to go before he'd be in consideration to take a spot. Anderson had a decent year with the Dodgers in 2015 (3.69 ERA, 1.33 WHIP), but he struck out just 5.8 hitters per nine and has been very mediocre in that department the last two seasons. At best, he'd be a matchup play in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues if he joins the rotation in the second half.

Dodgers | LA Dodgers send several players to DL

Sun, 03 Apr 2016 13:13:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier (leg) was among a number of players placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, April 3. Joining him were SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder), SP Brandon McCarthy (elbow), 2B Howie Kendrick (calf), INF Alex Guerrero (knee), C Yasmani Grandal (forearm), SP Brett Anderson (back), SP Mike Bolsinger (oblique) and RP Josh Ravin (wrist).

Fantasy Tip: Los Angeles' pitching depth figures to be tested right off the bat, as Ryi is expected to be out another month while McCarthy and Anderson may not return until the second half. Ethier's absence should make Carl Crawford a full-time player again until around June, making the ex-Tampa Bay Ray standout a fine under-the-radar fantasy option. The other notable name here is Grandal, who should be a serviceable catcher in fantasy if he is healthy. He is expected back in mid-April.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson out three to five months

Thu, 03 Mar 2016 08:41:01 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) will miss three to five months after surgery to repair a bulging disc in his back Thursday, March 3.

Fantasy Tip: Mike Bolsinger might re-enter the fold now as Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is out until at least May. Bolsinger had some flashes last season and is an NL-only option and one to watch in camp for mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson has back soreness

Wed, 02 Mar 2016 08:56:25 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson (back) was given the day off Wednesday, March 2, after experiencing back soreness after his batting practice session the previous day.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson is a fringe mixed-league starter that has had significant health concerns over the years. If he's able to stay healthy, he's on a good enough team to be worth rostering.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw leads tentative rotation

Sun, 28 Feb 2016 13:41:45 -0800

The Los Angeles Dodgers appear to have set their starting rotation, with SP Clayton Kershaw leading the way. He would be followed by SP Scott Kazmir, SP Kenta Maeda, SP Brett Anderson and SP Alex Wood.

Fantasy Tip: The two K's, Kershaw and Kazmir, should go in the first half of most drafts. Kershaw will be among the top 10 selected in most drafts and could even be the first or second pitcher off the board.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson accepts offer

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 14:59:32 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson accepted a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer from the Dodgers Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Returning to the Dodgers should help Anderson continue his career resurrection. His ground-ball tendencies aided him in limiting opponents and posting a 3.69 ERA, but otherwise, his stats were mediocre at best -- 10 wins, 1.33 WHIP and 5.8 K/9. He should be viewed as a spot starter or streaming option in favorable matchup in the majority of seasonal leagues entering 2016.

Dodgers | Brett Anderson receives qualifying offer

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 17:42:16 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Brett Anderson received a one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer from the team Friday, Nov. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Anderson has one week to accept the team's qualifying offer or become a free agent. If he signs with another club, the Dodgers would receive a compensatory pick in next year's draft. Anderson went 10-9 with a 3.69 ERA in a career-high 31 regular-season starts this year, following several injury-plagued seasons. He should be drafted in the middle rounds of NL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues next spring.
