Sun, 26 Jun 2016 04:36:52 -0700

Free-agent OF Carl Crawford (Dodgers) may have seen his interest from the Tampa Bay Rays decline, now that the team has traded for OF Eury Perez and OF Oswaldo Arcia.

Fantasy Tip: This should come as no surprise. Apparently the thinking is Crawford may be finished, but another team could still make an effort. He still has little or no fantasy value,.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford officially released

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 14:48:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford was officially released by the team Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: With a .185/.230/.235 line in 30 games this season, it should come as no surprise to anyone that Crawford has been released. Once one of fantasy baseball's most valuable outfielders, the 34-year-old has looked like a shell of his former self in recent seasons. While he might be able to latch on somewhere else -- similar to what Michael Bourn has done in Arizona -- his days of fantasy relevance appear to be over.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford designated for assignment

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:43:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford was designated for assignment Sunday, June 5. The team recalled C Austin Barnes from Class AAA Oklahoma City.

Fantasy Tip: Howie Kendrick likely will receive a lot of playing time in the outfield with Crawford no longer with the team. He has gone hitless in his last five games and is not a strong fantasy option in daily fantasy leagues at this point. Scott Van Slyke and Enrique Hernandez are also options to start in the outfield but are probably should be limited to NL-only leagues at this point.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal idle Saturday

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 15:50:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is out of the lineup Saturday, June 4, with C A.J. Ellis hitting eighth. OF Howie Kendrick is spelling OF Carl Crawford as well, and he's hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis has little offensive prowess, but he usually catches Clayton Kershaw. Avoid him in fantasy. Kendrick is 2-for-15 (.133) the last week, but he's a low-end option at second base against Bud Norris.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig still ailing

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 15:17:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, June 3. OF Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and is hitting seventh against Atlanta Braves SP Julio Teheran. OF Carl Crawford is in left and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Puig has missed several games now, and his owners should be concerned considering he went on the DL last year for a hamstring ailment to the same leg. Compounding things is the fact that Puig is only hitting .237/.283/.360. He's becoming increasingly difficult to rely on in mixed leagues. Thompson is in the midst of a breakout year with a .270 average, eight long balls and 20 RBI. He's a viable addition to deep mixed and daily lineups. Crawford is basically only playing right now with Puig hurt.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig still out

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 08:59:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks Thursday, June 2. OF Trayce Thompson will start in right field, while OF Carl Crawford will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Puig should be considered day-to-day and owners should continue to monitor the situation. Crawford has gone 2-for-11 over the last seven days but is not a great option in most fantasy leagues. Thompson has received regular playing time over the last few weeks but has been a bit inconsistent at the plate. He should be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues because of his power potential and has some value in deeper mixed leagues because he is seeing regular playing time.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig remains out Wednesday

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 14:57:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, June 1. OF Trayce Thompson is starting in right field and is batting fifth against Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester. OF Carl Crawford draws a start in left field and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Thompson has come on strong this year and has been starting regularly with seven home runs and 19 RBI. He's a fine candidate for daily lineups at a cheaper cost against a lefty. Crawford is basically a fifth outfielder these days with a .205/.244/.260 slash line and no home runs on the season. He should be avoided against a southpaw.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig scratched Tuesday

Tue, 31 May 2016 16:27:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig (hamstring) was scratched with a sore left hamstring Tuesday, May 31. OF Carl Crawford started in left field and OF Trayce Thompson (back) moved from left to right field. Thompson had missed the previous two games with back spasms. Manager Dave Roberts said Puig was held out as a precaution and expects him to play Wednesday, June 1.

Fantasy Tip: Puig dealt with a hamstring injury that caused him to miss time last year, so keep an eye on his status. He's been a disappointment this year, and this injury could cause him to cut down on his running on the base paths. Thompson has a .266/.333/.514 line with seven home runs and 19 RBI and is becoming more attractive than Puig in some mixed leagues.

Tue, 31 May 2016 00:00:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (hamstring) returned to the lineup Monday, May 30, against the Chicago Cubs, but he went hitless in three at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford is ambling along right at the Mendoza line. He is only worth using in NL-only fantasy leagues at this point.
