Dodgers | Justin Turner on a tear

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:34:01 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is hitting .342 (27-for-79) with six home runs in the month of June. He will return to the starting lineup Monday, June 29, after resting Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: At a modest price, Turner ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is hard to pass up on FantasyScore. He has a nice matchup tonight in Arizona against Allen Webster, too.

Dodgers | Justin Turner not in the lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:44:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner is not in the starting lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jose Urena Sunday, June 28. 3B Alberto Callaspo will start at third base and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should play in the next game or two. Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in five of his last eight games but is not a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Alberto Callaspo starting at third

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:54:43 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Alberto Callaspo is starting at third base and hitting seventh in the lineup Tuesday, June 23, against the Chicago Cubs and RHP Jason Hammel. 3B Justin Turner comes out of the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) does his best work against right-handed pitching, and he owns a batting average of .254 on the season. Callaspo lacks pop, but he's an affordable piece to fit into GPP lineups.

Dodgers | Justin Turner continues strong season

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 05:10:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner went 3-for-4 with two runs, two doubles, a home run and two RBI during the Dodgers' 9-5 loss to the San Francisco Giants Friday, June 19.

Fantasy Tip: Dating back to the beginning of 2014, Turner ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has a ridiculously strong .336/.401/.511 slash line over 491 plate appearances, and he is finally receiving close to everyday at-bats this season. His counting stats remain somewhat modest (21 runs, six home runs, 26 RBI), but his batting average carries enough value to maintain mixed league value. At FantasyScore, his salary presents huge profit potential and is worth targeting in favorable matchups.

Dodgers | No Justin Turner Thursday

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 16:14:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner isn't in the starting lineup Thursday, June 18, against the Texas Rangers. 3B Alberto Callaspo will start and bat seventh against RHP Anthony Ranaudo.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is 4-for-10 in his last three starts, with two walks, three doubles and three runs scored. FantasyScore owners can include Callaspo as a cheap option in any Dodgers' stacks on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez will be DH

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 15:40:28 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez will serve as the designated hitter against Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo Monday, June 15, and is batting third in the starting lineup. 3B Justin Turner will start at first base and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) has been one of the better hitters in fantasy this season and should be a starting option on FantasyScore. Turner ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) is hitting .351 with five RBI this month and could be a cheaper option for owners.

Dodgers | Justin Turner the starter at 3B

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 09:05:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (knee) has been named the primary third baseman by manager Don Mattingly. Turner is dealing with a sore knee that flares up with overuse. Mattingly said he will try to start him three days, with one day off, then play two days and another day off. 3B Alberto Callaspo will be the primary backup.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has a .316-5-24 line on the season, which isn't anything to shout about at third base. He's a low-end option on FantasyScore at that position.

Dodgers | Justin Turner returns to lineup

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:00:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (knee) is back in the starting lineup and is hitting fifth against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has basically become the regular third baseman after the team traded Juan Uribe away. Turner has earned it, too, hitting .310 (40-for-129) with five home runs and 23 RBI. After all, Turner has a slash line of .356/.414/.594 with all five of his home runs against right-handed pitchers this year, and Despaigne is a nice draw tonight.

Dodgers | Justin Turner possible for Friday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 17:16:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (knee) is considered a possibility for Friday, June 12, against the San Diego Padres, according to manager Don Mattingly. Turner is not expected to require any time on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) was 4-for-his-last-9 before sustaining the injury. Turner lacks serious power, but his on-base percentage of .382 should keep him under FantasyScore consideration once he is back in the lineup.

Dodgers | Justin Turner remains out Wednesday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 15:22:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner (knee) remains out of the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. 3B Alberto Callaspo is starting at third base and hitting seventh against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Jeremy Hellickson.

Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has very little power to speak of and is hitting only .212 (28-for-132) with a home run and nine RBI this season between the Dodgers and Atlanta Braves. Callaspo is an unattractive low-end third base option.
