Dodgers | A.J. Ellis placed on disabled list

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:00:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C A.J. Ellis (knee) was placed on the disabled list Monday, July 20, with right knee inflammation.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) hasn't been much of a fantasy factor this season, and he has been relegated to facing solely lefties, while Yasmani Grandal ($4,500, 9.0% of cap) receives the majority of playing time. However, Grandal is also potentially banged up. He took a ball off the mask Sunday, July 19. Austin Barnes has been called up and could have fleeting value in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not playing Sunday

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 12:48:30 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Kyle Lohse Sunday, July 12. C A.J. Ellis will start behind the plate and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 5-for-9 over his last three games with a double, a home run and two RBIs. He's worth considering in FantasyScore for owners who typically punt the catcher position.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal not playing

Wed, 08 Jul 2015 16:36:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers C Yasmani Grandal is not in the lineup against Philadelphia Phillies left-handed SP Adam Morgan Wednesday, July 8. C A.J. Ellis is starting and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) isn't known for his bat, and is batting only .187 (14-for-75) with no home runs and three RBI this year. It's safe to say he's a very low-end catching option on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) isn't much of an offensive force (.171-0-3) and should be avoided on FantasyScore.

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.

Dodgers | Yasmani Grandal out Friday

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.
