Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins not playing Thursday

Thu, 21 May 2015 09:46:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup against a lefty Thursday, May 21. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at shortstop and hitting second in the batting order against San Francisco Giants SP Madison Bumgarner.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a low-end play at FantasyScore going up against MadBum, who has pitched very well against L.A. in his career.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins has a large night

Sat, 16 May 2015 05:24:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins went 4-for-5 with two runs, a home run and two RBI against the Colorado Rockies Friday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: Rollins ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is gaining steam of late, as he is 7-for-16 with five runs and a 1.221 OPS over his past four games. Still, his slash line sits at .198/.279/.351 for the season. FantasyScore players have a high-risk, high-reward option at their disposal, and seasonal owners should hope for the momentum to continue for Rollins. At 36, though, there isn't the upside there once was.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins resting Wednesday

Wed, 13 May 2015 13:43:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 13. SS Enrique Hernandez is starting at the 6 and hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP Jarred Cosart.

Fantasy Tip: Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) doesn't possess much power and loses value near the bottom of the lineup. Even in a potent Dodgers lineup, he should be considered more of a weak play in daily games.

Thu, 07 May 2015 07:56:30 -0700

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins, Juan Uribe have tough matchup

Mon, 04 May 2015 14:38:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is hitting only .196 (9-for-46) with two home runs in his career against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse. 3B Juan Uribe is batting .174 (4-for-23) against Lohse.

Fantasy Tip: Not only do Rollins ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) and Uribe ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) have bad numbers against Lohse, but both players haven't gotten off to strong starts in 2015. They're both weak plays tonight at FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins out Thursday

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 10:50:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup Thursday, April 23. 2B Justin Turner is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff against San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Fantasy Tip: Turner ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) won't turn heads in typical fantasy baseball leagues, but he should tip the scales a bit Thursday at FantasyScore as a cheap flyer. Vogelsong (0-1, 10.45 ERA, 2.81 WHIP) is off to a horrendous start to the season.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins won't play Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 14:55:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ Monday, April 13. 2B Darwin Barney is starting at shortstop and hitting leadoff for the Dodgers.

Fantasy Tip: Barney ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hit much better against lefties (.275) than righties (.226) in 2014, but he doesn't give daily owners much optimism, even while hitting leadoff. About the only reason to choose Barney tonight is to save yourself plenty of money at other positions.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins stayed fit

Wed, 04 Mar 2015 11:02:19 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins has stayed fit this offseason with a regimen that included yoga, and he weighed in at 172 pounds this spring, which is roughly 12 pounds over his playing weight back in high school. "My thought is, 'Small dogs last longer. They really do,'" manager Don Mattingly said. "He hasn't put stress on his body because he's kept his weight the same and he's kept in shape. And just watching him work here, you can tell he's getting ready for April. That's what you get with older guys." Mattingly won't commit to a target of games for Rollins, but something in the 145-game range sounds reasonable.

Fantasy Tip: Rollins has more downside with the move to a less favorable hitter's park, but the retooled Dodgers lineup should help him score plenty of runs atop the L.A. lineup. There's also still some undervalued speed and power in the 36-year-old's body, making him attractive in the late middle rounds at a scarce position.

Dodgers | Jimmy Rollins likely to lead off

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 09:47:59 -0800

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Jimmy Rollins will lead off in the team's Cactus League opener against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, March 4, and manager Don Mattingly is pretty sure that Rollins will continue to be the leadoff hitter this season. Rollins stole 28 bases last year with the Philadelphia Phillies, and Mattingly said the team really doesn't have a better candidate at the top spot.

Fantasy Tip: At age 36, Rollins isn't a very intriguing fantasy baseball shortstop anymore, especially with the move to the Dodgers and a pitcher-friendly ballpark. However, he could be undervalued for his power-speed combo, and hitting at the top of the L.A. order won't hurt his run production.
