Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (hand) is out of the lineup Thursday, April 17. Also sitting are OFs Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier.
Fantasy Tip: The good news for Hanley is that the X-rays on his hand were negative after he was hit by a pitch Wednesday night. Check back for updates on his condition. If it's a long-term injury, Dee Gordon or Chone Figgins could lock down the 6.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (shoulder) went 3-for-3 with a home run and RBI in a minor league game Thursday, March 20, after missing a day with mild right shoulder inflammation.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said OF Carl Crawford's (shoulder) shoulder injury isn't expected to be serious, and no MRI exams or scans are planned "but that could change." "It sounds like he had a checked swing and felt a little something in his shoulder. ... He stopped right there," Mattingly said. "He had a planned day off tomorrow, and we expect him to play the day after."
Fantasy Tip: Good news for Crawford owners. But it reminds us that he's very injury-prone. Andre Ethier is a decent late-rounds stab to shore up your outfield depth if Crawford misses time during the season.

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Carl Crawford (undisclosed) left early in a minor league game Tuesday, March 18, for unknown reasons. It's not known if he was actually injured, but he was taken to the clubhouse on a cart, and sources are saying he may have injured his right shoulder. The Dodgers plan to update Crawford's condition later Tuesday from Australia. Crawford has not made the trip to Australia, because he will be put on paternity leave.
Fantasy Tip: This won't be a good start for the oft-injured Crawford if he's dealing with a serious ailment. Matt Kemp (ankle) won't be ready for the start of the year, either. Bump Andre Ethier up your draft boards slightly while keeping tabs on Crawford's status. Scott Van Slyke would receive some extra PT early in the year if Crawford isn't ready.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said OF Carl Crawford will not travel to Australia for the team's series against the Arizona Diamondbacks next weekend so that he can attend the birth of his third child.
Fantasy Tip: With Matt Kemp (ankle) and Crawford unavailable for the two-game series in Australia, OF Scott Van Slyke will likely get the starting nod for both games in left field. OF Mike Baxter and either OF Nick Buss or OF Joc Pederson are also expected to be on the roster, but these players carry very little fantasy value.
