Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is dealing with lower back tightness, but it isn't expected to keep him from playing in the team's season opener against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Australia this weekend. "I need to rest, get off my feet," said Gonzalez, who was removed from Thursday night's 4-2 exhibition win against Team Australia in the fourth inning. "I've done a lot of walking around the city. I'll be good (for Saturday night). I'm positive I'll feel better tomorrow."
Fantasy Tip: Obviously, this injury isn't very serious, but it's something to keep an eye on as Gonzalez ages. If it's something that lingers through the season, it could affect his already waning power numbers.

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez has four walks in 26 plate appearances this spring, and he's looking to be more selective this season. "I'm not going to go up there looking for a walk, but I do think I can get back to walking more," Gonzalez said. He led the majors in walks in 2009 with 119 but had only 89 combined walks in the last two years. Gonzalez attributed his lack of walks the last two seasons on him being in better lineups.
Fantasy Tip: More walks should help A-Gon's value in on-base percentage leagues, and it should help buoy his average, if he can accomplish it. His peak power years are in the past, but there may still be a little left.

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly admitted that he will consider using OF Yasiel Puig in the leadoff spot this season. Such a move would provide better right-lefty balance in the lineup and move OF Carl Crawford further down. Crawford would bat second, SS Hanley Ramirez third and 1B Adrian Gonzalez fourth. Puig had a .391 on-base percentage last year, which was second on the team. Puig was in the leadoff spot for 28 games last year and had a slash line of .333/.409/.618 with eight of his 19 home runs.
