Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal starting on bench

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Wednesday, July 1. C A.J. Ellis is catching and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) isn't much of an offensive force (.171-0-3) and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sitting out vs. Miami

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:58:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C A.J. Ellis is starting behind the plate and batting eight against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been giving way to Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) regularly against left-handed pitchers lately, so it is something to note and look out for going forward. Ellis projects as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday, and the cap relief he provides will likely be his best attribute.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal with day off

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:50:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs left-handed SP Tsuyoshi Wada Monday, June 22. C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .182 (4-for-22) against left-handers this year in limited time, but he's worth a look for some cap relief on a day with a small slate of games at your disposal. Plus, the wind is blowing out at the friendly confines tonight.

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:09:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 12. C A.J. Ellis is catching SP Clayton Kershaw and hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has struggled mightily in a backup catching role in 2015, and he has just eight hits in 58 at-bats (.138) with no home runs and two RBI. Even against Despaigne, Ellis is one to avoid on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal in two-hole

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 16:05:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is hitting second in the batting order against St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha Thursday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is facing a tough right-handed pitcher, he should be considered a strong play tonight. Grandal has a slash line of .295/.414/.495 and OPS of .909 against righties in 2015, and he took Wacha deep last weekend.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal hitting cleanup

Tue, 02 Jun 2015 15:45:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal will hit fourth in the order in Game 2 of the doubleheader Tuesday, June 2, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) struck out in his lone plate appearance in Game 1. A switch-hitter, Grandal fares nearly equally well against lefties and righties and with an ISO of .193 on the season, he'll be an excellent option at Coors Field when he goes up against RHP David Hale.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes won't be available on FantasyScore to use as a deep sleeper in Game 1 of the doubleheader.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal resting vs. Rockies

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:59:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 1. C A.J. Ellis is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) typically starts with Clayton Kershaw on the mound, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. Despite hitting only .137 (7-for-51) on the year, Ellis could make for a nice sleeper pick because he'll be hitting at Coors Field against a pitcher that has struggled most of the year.
