Dodgers | Carl Crawford on trade block?

Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:28:33 -0800

The Los Angeles Dodgers prefer to trade OF Carl Crawford over OF Andre Ethier, but they are getting more bites on Ethier, who had a bounce-back year in 2015 with a slash line of .294/.366/.486 in 142 games.

Fantasy Tip: The aging veteran (34 years old) will be in some sort of platoon role in the Los Angeles outfield again in 2016, and his decline power and speed makes him nothing more than a depth piece in NL-only and deep mixed leagues.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford not starting NLDS Game 4

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 12:35:22 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is out of the starting lineup for Game 4 of the National League Division Series Tuesday, Oct. 13, against the New York Mets. OF Justin Ruggiano is batting eighth against Mets SP Steven Matz.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is a victim of the left vs. left matchup that Matz would have provided. Ruggiano ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is a .301-5-11 hitter against lefties, so he may be a good bet if you're looking to save a little cap money.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford batting sixth

Sat, 10 Oct 2015 13:45:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford is batting sixth and starting in left field in Game 2 against the New York Mets Saturday, Oct. 10.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has historically hit well in the six hole. His .309 average from that spot is the highest of any batting order position in his career. He does face a tough task in hitting against Noah Syndergaard, who posted 166 strikeouts in 150 innings this season.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig unlikely against a righty

Tue, 06 Oct 2015 15:05:04 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is unlikely to start over either OFs Andre Ethier or Carl Crawford in the postseason against a right-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Puig ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is only expected to serve as a pinch hitter or pinch runner in the playoffs, although he could see a start here or there if the team faces a lefty. You're best off avoiding him entirely on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Four lefties out for Dodgers

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:07:00 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Joc Pederson, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford and C Yasmani Grandal are out of the lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Tuesday, Sept. 29. OF Enrique Hernandez is in center field and hitting leadoff, OF Justin Ruggiano is in left and batting sixth, C A.J. Ellis is catching and hitting seventh and OF Scott Van Slyke is in right field and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: In a matchup of perhaps the best two left-handed pitchers on the planet, none of the reserves starting for the Dodgers tonight should be attractive on FantsayScore as anything other than desperation contrarian picks.

Dodgers | Handful of Dodgers lefties sitting

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:20:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, OFs Carl Crawford, Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier and C Yasmani Grandal are all out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting leadoff, SS Jimmy Rollins is at shortstop and hitting second, OF Scott Van Slyke is at first base and hitting fifth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and OFs Chris Heisey and Scott Schebler round out the bottom of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to like here on FantasyScore with the overhaul of the L.A. lineup this afternoon against a southpaw. In fact, Corbin ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) makes a nice contrarian play if you're feeling lucky with a weak Dodgers lineup today.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford, Justin Ruggiano out

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 16:48:51 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Carl Crawford and Justin Ruggiano are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers have been using a number of outfield combinations of late, and it is a daily guessing game who manager Don Mattingly will start. FantasyScore players will want to check the lineup notes before locking any of Crawford ($3,600, 7.2% of cap), Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap), Andre Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap), Scott Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) or Joc Pederson ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) in their lineups. In seasonal formats, all five are low-end owns due to their inconsistent playing time.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford back in lineup

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 12:33:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford will bat leadoff and play left field against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Sunday, Sept. 20.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is batting .290 with two home runs and five RBIs during the month of September and he is batting .373 at Dodger Stadium this season. He makes an excellent FantasyScore value play.

Dodgers | Carl Crawford good to go

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 16:20:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (hamstring) is now a "full go," according to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Tip: Crawford ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) remains out of the lineup against a left-handed pitcher tonight, but he could be back in there as soon as tomorrow. Crawford can be useful in the right matchups against right-handers on FantasyScore if you're looking to save a little loot.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford both out

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 16:35:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OFs Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford (hamstring) are both out against Colorado Rockies left-handed SP Chris Rusin Tuesday, Sept. 15. OF Justin Ruggiano is starting in left field and hitting leadoff, while OF Chris Heisey is starting in right and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Both Ruggiano ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) and Heisey ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) are deep sleepers on FantasyScore, but Ruggiano has more appeal while hitting atop a potent Dodgers lineup. Rusin is a solid matchup for the Dodgers all around.
