Dodgers | To mix and match OF

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 12:00:27 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he plans to mix and match his outfielders now that OF Matt Kemp is back from the disabled list. "At this point, I'm going to match up as best I can," Mattingly said. "You think about it a lot. With all our guys, I worry about them emotionally and what it does to them." Kemp said this spring that he wouldn't accept the role of a fourth outfielder.

Fantasy Tip: Kemp will probably be rested more often than usual in April, allowing Andre Ethier semi-regular playing time. But once Kemp can prove he's healthy, Ethier figures to be the odd-man out the most.

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig being benched, Matt Kemp in

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 10:58:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig is being benched for showing up late Friday, April 4, and OF Matt Kemp will take his place in the lineup for his season debut.

Fantasy Tip: Puig has quickly found his way onto Don Mattingly's bad side. If Puig puts up numbers, Mattingly will be forced to keep him in the lineup. But if Puig struggles for a stretch, his off-the-field problems may cause him to ride pine more often than not.

Dodgers | Matt Kemp activated, but not in lineup

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 10:21:38 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers activated OF Matt Kemp (ankle) from the 15-day disabled list Friday, April 4, but he is not in the starting lineup against the San Francisco Giants. OF Mike Baxter was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: This move was expected. It's not a shock that Kemp isn't in the lineup, though, as the team will likely give him plenty of days off to keep from overworking him initially. When he's back in the lineup, he should be in your starting lineup.

Thu, 03 Apr 2014 15:13:00 -0700

"Physically, in his mind, Matt feels he's ready," manager Don Mattingly said. "He's said he's not afraid to do all the things he has to do. In a sense, we can only trust him. He's been honest with us. He doesn't want to get embarrassed. He wants to do well."

Fantasy Tip: Get ready to put Kemp in your starting lineup if he's activated from the DL tomorrow.

Dodgers | Matt Kemp could return Friday

Tue, 01 Apr 2014 13:49:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said OF Matt Kemp (ankle) could return from the disabled list and play Friday, April 4.

Fantasy Tip: The return of Kemp will most likely make Andre Ethier the loser in the outfield playing time situation. Upon Kemp's return, expect Mattingly to find opportunities to rest him often in the opening month.

Sat, 29 Mar 2014 11:32:13 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Matt Kemp (ankle) has ended his rehab assignment in Arizona and said he should be ready to play once he is eligible to be activated from the disabled list Friday, April 4. Kemp played minor league games for approximately two weeks, batting .113 with nine strikeouts in 53 at-bats. However, the telltale sign that he was close to returning was when he was able to steal a few bases. "One of my biggest obstacles was trying to slide and seeing how that would feel," he said. "But I conquered that and now we're good."
