Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal remains out

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:00:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (face) is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Tuesday, July 21. C Austin Barnes will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is still dealing with his injury but should be able to return soon. Barnes has gone 3-for-9 since being recalled from the team but is not a great fantasy option at this point.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal expected for Wednesday

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:35:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (undisclosed) is expected to play against the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, July 22, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) was hit in the mask by a ball Sunday, July 19, but it appears he has avoided serious injury. Fantasy owners will want to ensure he is healthy and in the lineup before activating him from their benches or utilizing him at FantasyScore. Austin Barnes projects to start for the duration of Grandal's absence.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal out vs. Braves

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 12:51:26 -0700

Los Angeles Angels C Yasmani Grandal (undisclosed) is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 20. C Austin Barnes is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) left the game Sunday, July 19, after taking a ball off of his mask. Expect an update on his status soon. Barnes has shown nice contact skills in the minors, but with just six plate appearances at the major league level, he is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests Monday.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal exits early

Sun, 19 Jul 2015 17:20:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal left in the sixth inning against the Washington Nationals after taking a ball off his mask Sunday, July 19. X-rays were negative, but he will have a CT scan Monday, July 20.

Fantasy Tip: If Grandal misses a few games, A.J. Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) will likely slide into the starting lineup. However, he is hitting .222 and doesn't provide much value at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not playing Sunday

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 12:48:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse Sunday, July 12. C A.J. Ellis will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 5-for-9 over his last three games with a double, a home run and two RBIs. He's worth considering in FantasyScore for owners who typically punt the catcher position.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not playing

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 16:36:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the lineup against Philadelphia Phillies left-handed SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, July 8. C A.J. Ellis is starting and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) isn't known for his bat, and is batting only .187 (14-for-75) with no home runs and three RBI this year. It's safe to say he's a very low-end catching option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal homers again

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 08:54:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal homered for the second straight game Tuesday, July 7, and his 14 home runs are tied with San Francisco Giants C Buster Posey for the most homers by a catcher this season. Grandal is one home run shy of his career high, set last year with the San Diego Padres in 128 games.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been a great value play on FantasyScore this year, but you might want to pass him up Wednesday night while facing a left-handed pitcher. Grandal has seven hits in 27 at-bats against lefties and has no home runs or RBI against them this year.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) enters play batting .181 for the season and just .139 at home. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.
