Dodgers | Manager talks Yasiel Puig injury

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:22:21 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig's (hamstring) injury will keep him out "more than 10 days," according to manager Don Mattingly. Mattingly is hopeful the hamstring is not as badly injured as it was earlier in the season.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) missed five weeks earlier in the season with an injury to the same hamstring, so the injury clearly is a significant concern and could potentially end his season. At this point, there is no indication that will be the case, though. Continue to check back for updates on Puig, and to reiterate past tips, Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is the playing-time beneficiary of Puig's injury.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig headed to disabled list

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 16:08:02 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) was placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: This isn't surprising news. Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is worth stashing in all formats, especially since we don't know his return timeline yet. Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) grabs extra value while Puig's out, and Crawford isn't a bad add in deep mixed leagues. Continue to check back for more details on Puig's injury.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out of the lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:52:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. OF Carl Crawford draws into the lineup and is batting sixth against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) pulled up abruptly after running out an infield single Thursday, Aug. 27, and it is believed he aggravated his right hamstring injury. Check back for updates, and while it isn't time to make hasty roster decisions, looking for potential replacements isn't a bad idea. Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) stands as a viable value play at FantasyScore Friday, and he projects to see an uptick in playing time for the duration of Puig's absence.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig exits early

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 12:33:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) pulled up after running out an infield single and had to leave the game Thursday, Aug. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) may have aggravated his right hamstring injury. You'll want to check back for updates before making any hasty roster decisions, as it might have just been a precautionary exit. Adrian Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) is already dealing with a knee injury and is day-to-day, so there could be a new-look lineup for the Dodgers over the next few days. Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Andre Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) are likely to see more playing time, if Puig's injury is serious.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig returns

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 14:11:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) returned to the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, and he's hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has a tough matchup against lefty Scott Kazmir. Puig does have four homers in 55 at-bats against lefties as opposed to six in 201 against righties. He's worth the play on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig could return Saturday

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 15:13:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is hoping that OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) can return to the starting lineup Saturday, Aug. 22.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) remains in a slump since the All-Star break (.232-6-21) and isn't a desirable FantasyScore weapon, especially if he's not 100% healthy. If he returns tomorrow, he'd be facing Houston Astros starter Scott Kazmir. You may want to wait a few days before considering him again in your daily lineups.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig remains sidelined

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 14:19:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Friday, Aug. 21. OF Carl Crawford is starting in left field and hitting seventh against Houston Astros SP Mike Fiers.

Fantasy Tip: While Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) won't run nearly as much as he did earlier in his career when he was healthier, he can still be useful against right-handed pitchers. He's batting .293 (22-for-75) with both of his homers and all 10 of his RBI against righties this year. Not a bad option as a value selection tonight.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig has mild strain

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:39:43 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig's (hamstring) MRI exam showed a very mild strain, and he's listed as day-to-day. The team's medical staff thinks he should avoid the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) and make sure he's back in the lineup before using him on FantasyScore. He's out today. Carl Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) could split time with Puig in the outfield to keep him healthy in the short term, and Crawford can be a very nice matchup play against right-handers - like today against A's starter Jesse Chavez.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig out with hamstring injury

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:24:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is out of the lineup Wednesday, Aug 19, against the Oakland Athletics. Puig left the game Tuesday, Aug. 18, with tightness in his right hamstring. OF Carl Crawford will play left field and bat second against A's SP Jesse Chavez.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is batting .800 in his last 10 at-bats and .371 with a home run and three stolen bases the last month. He is a strong matchup play at an affordable price on FantasyScore and should be the primary beneficiary in yearly leagues if Puig is placed on the disabled list.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig has hamstring injury

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:04:20 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) left the game early with tightness in his right hamstring Tuesday, Aug. 18, and he's scheduled to undergo an MRI exam Wednesday, Aug. 19. His right leg was wrapped in ice after the game, but he didn't think it was as severe as his last hamstring injury that landed him on the disabled list. Puig missed 38 games earlier this year with a strained left hamstring. OF Carl Crawford replaced Puig last night, and he would probably become an everyday outfielder if Puig misses extended time again.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as though Puig ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) will at least miss a few days, so be prepared to avoid him on FantasyScore. Crawford ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has hit well in limited duty this year and would be worth adding in deep mixed leagues if he becomes an everyday player.
