Dodgers | Yasiel Puig still hurting

Fri, 22 May 2015 18:25:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is still dealing with tightness in his hamstring, manager Don Mattingly said Friday, May 22.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds like it could still be a while before Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is able to return. If you drafted him in a seasonal league, you have no choice but to continue to stash him.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig near return?

Fri, 22 May 2015 11:59:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) has felt better in recent days and may be nearing a return to the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been missed in the lineup in the past couple weeks. Monitor his progress and avoid using him in the first game or two back until he works the kinks out of his body.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out a couple weeks

Wed, 13 May 2015 14:29:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will be out at least another couple of weeks, according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: With Puig out a couple of more weeks, at least, Andre Ethier ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) should continue to see the majority of starts in right field. He'll remain an excellent choice as a value play at FantasyScore when facing right-handed pitchers. Ethier is hitting .324 (22-for-68) with all five of his home runs coming against righties in 2015.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig a week away from rehab

Wed, 13 May 2015 09:04:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is at least two days away from baseball activities, according to manager Don Mattingly. Another rehab assignment for Puig is at least a week away. "I don't know about it starting all the way over," Mattingly said. "It wasn't necessarily good news, but I don't feel we're starting all the way over. The MRI shows a strain, and we already knew there was one."

Fantasy Tip: Sit tight if you own Puig. In the meantime, Andre Ethier ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is an excellent buy-low option at FantasyScore against right-handed pitchers, as evidenced by his 5-for-5 night with a home run Tuesday.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig confirms setback

Tue, 12 May 2015 16:33:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) had an MRI Tuesday, May 12, that confirmed a setback in his recovery. Puig will slow down his rehab.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) must continue to be stashed in all leagues. Scott Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) continues to start in left field, with Andre Ethier ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) starting in right field. Van Slyke has been the more effective option for both season-long and FantasyScore formats.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig's MRI now Monday

Sun, 10 May 2015 19:00:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will have an MRI on his injured left hamstring Monday, May 11, and not Sunday, May 10, as previously stated by manager Don Mattingly. Mattingly said he misspoke about the MRI being on Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Andre Ethier ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will continue to see some extra starts while Puig is sidelined, and if you own Puig in seasonal leagues, continue to stash him on your bench.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig will have MRI Sunday

Sun, 10 May 2015 05:48:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will undergo an MRI Sunday, May 10. Puig pulled up running out a ground in a rehab game Friday after feeling something in his injured left hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) needs to be stashed but a setback would certainly test the patience of his owners. The Dodgers won't rush Puig back until he's 100% healthy. Andre Ethier will continue to draw some FantasyScore consideration as the Dodgers starting right fielder for the time being.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig suffers setback

Sat, 09 May 2015 11:37:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) aggravated his left hamstring injury while running to first base in a rehab game with high-A Rancho Cucamonga Friday, May 8. He will be re-evaluated in Los Angeles Saturday, May 9.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) had been slated to come off the disabled list Monday, May 11, but this scenario now appears unlikely. Check back regularly for updates on his condition. In the meantime, Andre Ethier ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) will continue to see most of the action for the Dodgers in right field.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig could return Monday

Fri, 08 May 2015 16:11:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) could return Monday, May 11, after he completes a minor league rehab assignment over the weekend.

Fantasy Tip: When Puig ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) returns, it could move Andre Ethier ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) into a platoon role with either Alex Guerrero or Scott Van Slyke in left field with Carl Crawford (oblique) out for an extended timetable. Puig should immediately become an option for FantasyScore users when he's back.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig will DH during rehab Thursday

Wed, 06 May 2015 15:46:12 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter for high-A Rancho Cucamonga Thursday, May 7.

Fantasy Tip: Puig's ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) base running and defense is the real concern, so until he plays the field for a full game, he isn't close to returning. Continue to check back for updates on his recovery progress and a more concrete return timeline. Andre Ethier ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has played the majority of games in right field with Puig on the shelf, and Ethier is a nice matchup play for FantasyScore contests in the meantime.
