Dodgers | Yasiel Puig tests hammy

Sun, 03 May 2015 05:50:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) tested his injured hamstring by running lightly in the outfield Saturday, May 2. He is still expected to begin a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Tip: Monitor Puig's ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) status and progress through his rehab assignment and look out for an official return date. He has nice upside at his cap hit for FantasyScore players, and Puig is surrounded by solid bats in a strong lineup. It might be time for seasonal players to accept injuries as part of the package with Puig, though.

Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) is hitting .500 with five home runs and 13 RBIs this year in 22 at-bats. His power potential is intriguing, and he offers great upside for the price at FantasyScore when he is in the lineup.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig placed on disabled list

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 12:07:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has been placed on the 15-day disabled list due to a strained hamstring. It marks the first time in his career that Puig has landed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Expect OF Andre Ethier ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) to get the bulk of the playing time in right field while Puig is sidelined, although OF Scott Van Slyke ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) could see additional at-bats as well. Manager Don Mattingly said he believed Puig could play again in four or five days but he was worried that the odds of him suffering another setback immediately after returning were too great.

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 00:46:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) left the game against the San Diego Padres on Friday, April 24, due to hamstring issues and not his knee.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) could be on the shelf for a small stretch if his hamstring injury is serious, so keep an eye on this situation. You obviously may want to go with other outfielders even if Puig plays because it is hard to tell how he will do.
