Dodgers | Three Dodgers regulars out vs. lefty

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 14:52:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Chase Utley, 1B Adrian Gonzalez and C Yasmani Grandal are not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs left-handed SP Jon Lester Wednesday, June 1. OF Enrique Hernandez is starting at second and hitting leadoff, 2B Howie Kendrick is at first base and batting cleanup and C A.J. Ellis is doing the catching and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The Dodgers often sit a handful of their lefty regulars against a southpaw, so this is no surprise. Hernandez gains some daily value hitting leadoff, but he's cooled since a hot start and had just four hits (one double) in 37 at-bats (.108) in May. Kendrick could be the best value pick in DFS among the group hitting cleanup. Ellis is a light-hitting catcher that should be avoided in all fantasy formats.

Dodgers | L.A. better on the road

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 11:04:05 -0700

The Los Angeles Dodgers are a much better hitting team on the road than at home this year. They are averaging 3.44 runs per game at home (ranked 26th) compared to 5.11 on the road, which ranks fourth. 3B Justin Turner, 2B Howie Kendrick, OF Yasiel Puig, OF Joc Pederson and 1B Adrian Gonzalez are all hitting .211 or lower at Dodger Stadium.

Fantasy Tip: Take note of these numbers when streaming pitchers or looking for a nice value play as your second starter in daily setups.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez returns

Sat, 21 May 2016 15:53:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) returned to the lineup Saturday, May 21. He's hitting cleanup, and 3B Justin Turner returned to the three-hole. 2B Howie Kendrick is sitting out.

Fantasy Tip: A-Gone has a ridiculous .384-2-15 line on the road considering he has 20 RBI on the year. He hasn't been great at Petco Park, but not many hitters are. He's a solid start against Cesar Vargas. Turner is hitting just .217 this month and has struggled much of the season. He has upside in the three-hole, but he's a risky lower-middle option.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez enters game late

Sat, 21 May 2016 07:03:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) was not in the starting lineup Friday, May 20, but was able to enter the game in the eighth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez may return to the starting lineup soon since he was able to play in the field Friday. Gonzalez has posted terrific numbers this season and should be a starter in fantasy leagues when he is healthy.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out again

Fri, 20 May 2016 16:03:29 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) remains out of the starting lineup Friday, May 20. C Yasmani Grandal is playing first base and is hitting seventh against San Diego Padres SP Christian Friedrich. C A.J. Ellis is doing the catching and hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: A-Gon is day-to-day and is expected to return to starting duties tomorrow. Get him back in there in all starting lineups if he indeed returns. Grandal typically sits against lefty pitchers and has just three hits in 14 at-bats (.214) against them this year. That makes both he and Ellis catchers to avoid in daily leagues tonight.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez to return this weekend

Thu, 19 May 2016 17:04:31 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is expected to return to the starting lineup Saturday, May 21, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez will wind up missing four games if that's the case. He's 34 now, but the veteran first baseman has played in 150-plus games in every season since 2006. He's unlikely to reach the 30-homer mark again, but 20 long balls is a safe bet, and he'll contribute nicely in RBI and in the average department, too. Get him back into all starting lineups when he returns.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez remains out

Thu, 19 May 2016 15:19:57 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is missing his third straight game Thursday, May 19. 2B Howie Kendrick is at first base again and is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jhoulys Chacin.

Fantasy Tip: A-Gon remains day-to-day, so hopefully for his owners he'll return sometime this weekend. Kendrick has replaced him all three games at first base and despite hitting just .216 is batting .283 (15-for-53) in the month of May. But he has zero homers and is lacking in the counting stats. Hitting cleanup is a nice opportunity, but Kendrick just hasn't shown enough to be given a long look in fantasy leagues.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out again

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:41:46 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is out of the lineup for the second straight game Wednesday, May 18. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at first base again and is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Nick Tropeano.

Fantasy Tip: A-Gon's back injury isn't significant, and he could very well return to the lineup for L.A.'s next game. Once he's back, return him to lineups everywhere. Kendrick quietly has a four-game hitting streak and is batting .306 on the month. However, he has yet to hit a home run. In the cleanup spot, though, he could be worthy of a sleeper selection in DFS.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez feeling better

Tue, 17 May 2016 16:34:19 -0700

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is feeling better and could pinch hit Tuesday, May 17, according to manager Dave Roberts.

Fantasy Tip: That's good news for Gonzalez and his fantasy owners. There's a chance he could be back as soon as Wednesday. Make sure to remove him from your lineups Tuesday night, though. Despite a .282 average, A-Gon has only four home runs on the season. It's still early, though, and he has time to get going and return to the 20-homer mark. The days of him hitting 30-plus bombs are in the past.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out Tuesday

Tue, 17 May 2016 15:19:35 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 17. 2B Howie Kendrick is starting at first base and is hitting cleanup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Jered Weaver.

Fantasy Tip: It's unknown how severe A-Gon's back injury is, so keep close tabs on his status moving forward. Kendrick has an underwhelming slash line of .214/.243/.224 this year with no homers, but his daily value sees a significant boost hitting cleanup against a struggling hurler in Weaver. Kendrick qualifies as a value pick in DFS.
