Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal sitting out vs. Miami

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:58:11 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. C A.J. Ellis is starting behind the plate and batting eight against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been giving way to Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) regularly against left-handed pitchers lately, so it is something to note and look out for going forward. Ellis projects as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore players Friday, and the cap relief he provides will likely be his best attribute.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal with day off

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:50:55 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs left-handed SP Tsuyoshi Wada Monday, June 22. C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is hitting only .182 (4-for-22) against left-handers this year in limited time, but he's worth a look for some cap relief on a day with a small slate of games at your disposal. Plus, the wind is blowing out at the friendly confines tonight.

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 15:09:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 12. C A.J. Ellis is catching SP Clayton Kershaw and hitting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Odrisamer Despaigne.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has struggled mightily in a backup catching role in 2015, and he has just eight hits in 58 at-bats (.138) with no home runs and two RBI. Even against Despaigne, Ellis is one to avoid on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal out Saturday

Sat, 06 Jun 2015 16:09:59 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has just one multi-hit game on the season, and he's not a viable option on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal resting vs. Rockies

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 13:59:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 1. C A.J. Ellis is starting and hitting eighth in the batting order against Colorado Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) typically starts with Clayton Kershaw on the mound, so this shouldn't come as a surprise. Despite hitting only .137 (7-for-51) on the year, Ellis could make for a nice sleeper pick because he'll be hitting at Coors Field against a pitcher that has struggled most of the year.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal still sitting

Mon, 25 May 2015 14:34:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (face) is still out of the lineup Monday, May 25, against the Atlanta Braves. C A.J. Ellis will start in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal should be returning in the near future. He may have been given the day off since the Dodgers have a day game. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has played sparingly this year and still has zero homeruns and only one RBI. He isn't worth starting on FantasyScore even at his dirt cheap price.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal injured

Sat, 23 May 2015 00:24:26 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal (face) left the game Friday, May 22, against the San Diego Padres when he was struck in his catcher's mask by a bat and a foul ball. C A.J. Ellis replaced him. Grandal will not play Saturday, May 23, but that was already a scheduled day off for him.

Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) will likely be all right, but take him out of your lineup for a couple days to be on the safe side. Ellis ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) won't offer much fantasy value to you.
