Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) returned to the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, hitting seventh.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal to return Thursday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:54:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) will return to the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has been bothered by a nagging shoulder ailment of late, and his results at the plate have suffered as a result. Sitting him out tomorrow in a day game is probably the smart thing to do on FantasyScore, even though he has a nice matchup against Cincinnati Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sidelined Wednesday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:06:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) is out of the lineup again Wednesday, Aug. 26. C A.J. Ellis is behind the dish and is hitting seventh against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg.

Fantasy Tip: Facing a hittable lefty like Holmberg may be one of the few times you consider using Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) as a sleeper catcher pick on FantasyScore. Ellis can also save you significant cap space for the rest of your lineup.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal bothered by shoulder

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:07:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) is still bothered by his sore shoulder, and he's likely to be out of the starting lineup again Wednesday, Aug. 26. However, he's not expected to land on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure you leave Grandal out of your daily lineups for at least the next couple of days. A.J. Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) will start in his absence, but he's not known for his bat and should be considered a low-end catching option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not starting Tuesday

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 14:02:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Cincinnati Reds. C A.J. Ellis is batting seventh against Reds SP John Lamb.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) appears to be out of the lineup due to Lamb's presence and nothing else. Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has a .600 average with one homer in five at-bats this past week, so if you're looking for a lower-cost catcher he may fit the bill.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sitting out

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 10:42:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Sunday, Aug. 23. C A.J. Ellis will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) likely will return to the lineup in the next game or two. Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is hitting only .217 in limited playing time this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sitting vs. lefty

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 15:31:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 18. C A.J. Ellis is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront Tuesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Grandal ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) in all fantasy formats Tuesday. The backstop has hit a bump in an otherwise excellent season over the past two weeks, as he owns a .160/.290/.200 slash line over his past eight games. Ellis ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore player Tuesday.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal catching Sunday

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 11:23:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is back in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Sunday, Aug. 16, batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) is batting .308 with four home runs and 14 RBIs during day games this season, making him worthy of FantasyScore consideration this afternoon.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal playing after all

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:12:41 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) is starting against Cincinnati Reds left-handed SP John Lamb Friday, Aug. 14.

Fantasy Tip: It was initially believed that Grandal ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) would rest his shoulder a few days while the team faced left-handed pitchers. But that won't be the case tonight. The switch-hitting Grandal has done mainly all of his damage from the left side this year, and although he's facing a youngster making his major league debut tonight, he shouldn't be considered a strong daily choice while hitting right-handed.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal out a few days?

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 16:59:25 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (shoulder) will receive a few days off to rest his sore left shoulder, and the team is facing left-handed starting pitchers both Friday, Aug. 14, and Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitting Grandal ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has done pretty much all of his damage from the left side of the plate against right-handed pitchers this year. Look to avoid him for the next two days on FantasyScore.
