Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sitting vs. Giants

Wed, 30 Sep 2015 16:35:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 30. C Austin Barnes draws into the lineup and is batting seventh against San Francisco Giants SP Mike Leake Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has been battling a bad back, so he may play sparingly over the final regular season games. Check back for updates on his status. Barnes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players Wednesday. He only have 32 plate appearances in the majors.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez returns

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 15:38:10 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is returning to the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants SP Jake Peavy Monday, Sept. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Even though he's coming off a minor injury, Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) makes for a very acceptable FantasyScore choice against Peavy. A-Gon has three career home runs against Peavy in only 20 at-bats.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez close to returning

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 12:13:21 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is hopeful for the game against the San Francisco Giants Monday, Sept. 28, according to manager Don Mattingly. Gonzalez has a pinched nerve in his lower back that has prevented him from starting three of the last four games, but he said he felt better Sunday, Sept. 27.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) has really struggled down the stretch with a .233/.317/.383 slash line since Saturday, Aug. 1. So with a nagging back injury also in the picture, Gonzalez is a risky daily play at FantasyScore, and his seasonal value is trending down significantly.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 11:51:49 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (back) is not starting Sunday, Sept. 27, against the Colorado Rockies. 1B Scott Van Slyke is batting fourth against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin.

Fantasy Tip: Odds are Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) may have been held out anyway due to a lefty pitcher, but back trouble just cements his spot on the bench for the weekend. Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) doesn't have the numbers to justify the FantasyScore spot.

Dodgers | Handful of Dodgers lefties sitting

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 10:20:16 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Corey Seager, 1B Adrian Gonzalez, OFs Carl Crawford, Joc Pederson and Andre Ethier and C Yasmani Grandal are all out of the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Patrick Corbin Thursday, Sept. 24. OF Justin Ruggiano is hitting leadoff, SS Jimmy Rollins is at shortstop and hitting second, OF Scott Van Slyke is at first base and hitting fifth, C A.J. Ellis is behind the plate and OFs Chris Heisey and Scott Schebler round out the bottom of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to like here on FantasyScore with the overhaul of the L.A. lineup this afternoon against a southpaw. In fact, Corbin ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) makes a nice contrarian play if you're feeling lucky with a weak Dodgers lineup today.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 20 Sep 2015 12:13:18 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole Sunday, Sept. 20. 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke will play first base and bat sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has just one home run in 84 at-bats since the All-Star break and is only batting .237 against right-handed pitching this year. He is not a great FantasyScore option at this point and should be ignored.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sitting vs. Colorado

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:00:45 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 16. C Austin Barnes draws into the lineup and is batting first against Colorado Rockies SP Jorge De La Rosa Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. The veteran has a .704 OPS over his past 24 games, so a breather against a southpaw makes sense. Barnes ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief at FantasyScore Wednesday.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez right back in lineup

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 15:47:56 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (knee) is starting at first base and batting third against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) fouled a ball off his knee Thursday, Aug. 27, and was deemed day-to-day. It isn't surprising to see him in the lineup Friday, but he might not be 100%. He is a risky option at FantasyScore given his high price. It is a good sign for Gonzalez's seasonal owners, though.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez exits, is day-to-day

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 11:44:34 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez (knee) fouled a ball off his knee and had to leave the game early Thursday, Aug. 27. He has a right knee contusion and is considered day-to-day.

Fantasy Tip: Be ready to be without Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) for a game or two, and make sure to check back for updates. He is having another reliable season with 24 home runs, 74 RBI with a .288/.361/.511 slash line. The Dodgers have a few options to fill in at first base, but Scott Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) projects to fill in while Gonzalez is out.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez a good play against lefty?

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 10:07:36 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez has homered in both of his at-bats against Oakland Athletics SP Felix Doubront, who he faces Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: Despite the lefty-lefty matchup tonight, don't completely avoid Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) on FantasyScore. However, you'll definitely want to double check he's in the lineup. The veteran first baseman is hitting .300 (30-for-100) with three of his 24 homers against southpaws this year.
