Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not starting Tuesday

Tue, 03 May 2016 14:09:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not starting Tuesday, May 3, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Grandal is spelled by C A.J. Ellis, who will hit seventh against Rays SP Matt Moore.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be nothing but a normal night off for Grandal, so put him on your bench in daily leagues. Ellis is a .237-1-8 hitter in the past 30 days so his fantasy value is minimal.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig returns after a day off

Sun, 01 May 2016 12:24:19 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is in the lineup Sunday, May 01, against San Diego Padres SP Drew Pomeranz and will bat leadoff. The Dodgers will get a host of other regulars a day off, however, as 2B Chase Utley, C Yasmani Grandal, OF Carl Crawford and OF Joc Pederson are not starting. In their place, OF Enrique Hernandez will occupy left field and bat second, 2B/3B Howie Kendrick will play second base and hit fifth, OF Trayce Thompson will spell Pederson in center and bat sixth, and C A.J. Ellis will catch and hit eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is mired in a 7-for-51 slump since the middle of April following a hot start and is probably needs to be benched in most leagues for now, although manager Dave Roberts is obviously showing a lot of faith in his struggling slugger by batting him leadoff today. Utley is getting a rest day and has cooled slightly after batting over .300 for most of April, but he should be inserted back in lineups Tuesday when the Dodgers hit the road to face the Tampa Bay Rays.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez not starting Monday

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 15:56:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (rest) is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 25. C Yasmani Grandal will take his place at first base and bat fifth opposite Miami Marlins SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: This looks like a routine day off for the veteran A-Gon, so his owners need not panic. Grandal could end up being someone worth deploying in daily formats, as he excelled greatly against left-handed pitching a season ago. Thus, he might have some solid value in tonight's contest.

Dodgers | Two Dodgers sitting out

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 14:07:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup Saturday, April 23, with OF Yasiel Puig hitting third and C A.J. Ellis hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is still hitting .310 despite a 3-for-17 (.176) the last seven days. He's a high-end outfield option against Tyler Chatwood. Ellis is hitting just .154 and isn't worth the low-end flyer.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal being eased into action

Sun, 17 Apr 2016 09:30:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is catching back-to-back games for the first time since returning from the disabled list. However, manager Dave Roberts wants to "ease him in a little bit" in order to avoid his forearm issue flaring up again.

Fantasy Tip: Expect A.J. Ellis to receive a greater deal of playing time than normal in the foreseeable future so that Grandal can remain healthy. He could be worth using in daily fantasy contests when the matchup is favorable.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig enjoys rare day off

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 15:55:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is not in the lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Johnny Cueto on Saturday, April 16. OF Trayce Thompson will occupy his spot in right field and bat eighth. 2B Chase Utley and SS Corey Seager are both back in the lineup after a day off and hitting first and second, respectively. C Yasmani Grandal will make his third appearance of the season behind the plate and bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig was due a rest after playing in each of the Dodgers' first 11 games, while Utley returns to the lineup against a right-hander after the Dodgers faced southpaws the last two days. Seager should be plugged right back into all lineups, while Grandal should probably be left on benches for now after coming off the disabled list earlier this week. On a side note, DFS players will be happy to know the red-hot Enrique Hernandez, who homered twice off Madison Bumgarner on Friday, will remain in the lineup.

Dodgers | Three L.A. regulars rested

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 14:20:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and SS Corey Seager are out of the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, April 15. OF Trayce Thompson is in center and hitting sixth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and batting seventh, while OF Charlie Culberson is starting at the 6 and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Against the MadBum, we can't seriously recommend any of Thompson, Ellis or Culberson as attractive deep sleeper picks for daily gamers.

Dodgers | Several Dodgers starters resting

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 15:41:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 3B Justin Turner, OF Joc Pederson, C Yasmani Grandal and 2B Chase Utley are all out of the starting lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Thursday, April 14. 2B Howie Kendrick moves to third base, C Austin Barnes is starting at second and hitting eighth, OF Trayce Thompson is in center field and batting sixth, while OF Enrique Hernandez gets the start in left and is leading off.

Fantasy Tip: With a lot of moving parts in the Los Angeles lineup tonight, you should certainly consider using Ray in your lineup this evening. Barnes and Thompson are deep sleepers as lotto tickets in daily games. Hernandez, who has some thump in his stick, could be a sneaky deep sleeper while hitting leadoff.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal making debut

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 15:07:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (forearm) is making his season debut and is hitting sixth against Arizona Diamondbacks SP Rubby De La Rosa Wednesday, April 13.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal was slowed by forearm issues this spring. For that reason he could still be available in your league. If he is, scoop him up immediately. He has 20-homer power at a weak position. Get him back in your lineups in all formats, and he could be a great contrarian pick in daily games tonight, as well.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal to play Wednesday

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 10:08:43 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (forearm) will make his season debut at catcher Wednesday, April 13, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal was activated off the DL Tuesday, but the Dodgers are facing a left-handed pitcher. Grandal will make his season debut tomorrow and face Rubby De La Rosa, so make sure you get him back into your starting lineups where you own him. De La Rosa surrendered six earned runs in just 3 1/3 innings in his season debut last week.
