Dodgers | Yasiel Puig scores game-winning run

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 23:35:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig went 2-for-4 against the Washington Nationals on Wednesday, June 22, and scored the game-winning run after his single got past OF Michael Taylor and rolled to the wall.

Fantasy Tip: Any lingering concerns about Puig's hammy may have evaporated after he sprinted around the bases to turn a would-be single into what was essentially an error-aided inside-the-park home run. He's 3-for-7 in two games since returning and is worth getting back in your lineups.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig activated

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 15:12:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 21, and is in the starting lineup against Washington Nationals SP Tanner Roark. He is batting seventh in the lineup. The team also optioned P Carlos Frias to Class AAA Oklahoma City.

Fantasy Tip: Puig is hitting .237 with five home runs and 20 RBI so far this season but did perform well during his rehab assignment. Owners may want to see him play in a game, but he should still be a starting candidate in most leagues.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig to be activated Tuesday

Mon, 20 Jun 2016 17:00:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, June 21, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Puig's struggles from last season have poured into 2016, in which he's registered a disappointing .237/.283/.360 line. However, he did perform well during his minor league rehab stint, so there is potential he can get something going when he returns to the lineup.

Dodgers | Hyun-Jin Ryu, Yasiel Puig rehabbing

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 16:15:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) is scheduled to pitch four innings or 60 pitches for Class A Rancho Cucamonga Friday, June 17. OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is also scheduled to play seven innings in the same game.

Fantasy Tip: Ryu is closing in on his season debut for the Dodgers, and he could replace Julio Urias in the rotation as the Dodgers look to limit the teenager's workload this year. Ryu has been a huge injury risk but has been solid when healthy for the Blue. Consider stashing him now in deep mixed and NL leagues if you need rotation help. Puig has been a disappointment in 2016 but should have a semi-regular role when he returns. His power-speed combination still plays in deeper leagues.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig could be back Monday

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 05:22:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) could be back with the team as soon as Monday, June 20. Puig took part in another rehab game on Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: As an earlier post suggested, Puig's .237 average and wandering mind in the outfield could cost him some playing time upon return. If you play Puig, you may want to do it more in daily formats instead until you get an idea how much time Puig will see.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig plays in rehab game

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 17:14:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) went 1-for-1 with a walk in five innings in a rehab game with Class A Rancho Cucamonga Tuesday, June 14.

Fantasy Tip: The talent remains with Puig, but his inconsistency and lack of discipline continues to hurt him, and he's been a disappointment for his owners this year with a .237/.283/.360 slash line and only five home runs and 20 RBI. He could find himself in more of a timeshare in right field when he returns from the DL.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig set for rehab stint

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 19:56:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab stint with Class A Rancho Cucamonga Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like the plan is for Puig to return June 20 against the Washington Nationals. However, the emergence of Trayce Thompson makes the immediate role and fantasy value of Puig rather murky when he is able to officially return.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig could return on June 20

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 23:25:01 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is set to begin a rehab assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga on Monday, June 13, with an eye on being activated from the disabled list on Monday, June 20, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Manager Dave Roberts also mentioned that Puig was putting some time in the batting cage in an attempt to shorten his stroke. The emergence of Trayce Thompson clouds Puig's role upon returning, but don't be too quick to cut bait on the talented outfielder despite what has been a less-than-stellar 2016 thus far.

Dodgers | Trayce Thompson could play every day

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 17:37:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Trayce Thompson has played well enough to earn regular playing time, according to manager Dave Roberts. He could be used as the club's everyday left fielder once OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) returns from the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The 25-year-old Thompson is batting .271 with eight doubles, 10 home runs and 22 RBI in just 133 at-bats this year. He should be viewed as a solid option in all fantasy formats because of his ability to contribute across all offensive categories.
