Fantasy Tip: Turner ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is hitting .313 overall this season, including a .348 mark at Dodger Stadium. However, he is only batting .146 versus lefties, so you may want to avoid using him this afternoon in FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 13:01:41 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rollins ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is getting a simple day off, so remove him from the lineup accordingly. Hernandez ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is 3-for-7 in his past two games and is worth a flyer in FantasyScore.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:52:52 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has struggled of late, going 4-for-22 in his last 10 contests. However, he is batting .308 at Dodger Stadium and .273 versus lefties, so he merits some consideration in FantasyScore if you're looking for an inexpensive outfielder.
Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:50:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Ellis ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) enters play batting .181 for the season and just .139 at home. Avoid using him in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Fantasy Tip: Closer Kenley Jansen had appeared in seven of the previous 10 games and had allowed a run in three straight, so it was likely just a night off due to the heavy workload. Jansen remains an elite fantasy closer, and he owns a 1.93 ERA and has 32 strikeouts in 18 2/3 innings.

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Zack Greinke allowed four hits and struck out four over seven scoreless innings in a win over the New York Mets Saturday, July 4, and he has not allowed a run in his last 27 2/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: Greinke ($9,100, 18.2% of cap) now leads the majors with a 1.48 ERA, and he has allowed one run or less in 10 of his last 12 starts. He is worth paying up for at FantasyScore whenever he takes the mound.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:18:12 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Grandal ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has a tough matchup, but he has a .294-2-5 line the last seven days. He's a mid-to-upper tier catcher on FantasyScore.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 13:17:48 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Callaspo ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) faces the daunting task of Matt Harvey today. His .233-1-10 line doesn't give much reason for hope on FantasyScore.
Sat, 04 Jul 2015 05:07:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners shouldn't panic, but it is the third consecutive game Jansen allowed an earned run, especially because he only allowed a single earned run over his previous 15 appearances. Still, Jansen is an elite closer who boasts a 1.93 ERA, 1.21 FIP, 0.59 WHIP and 15.4 K/9. He'll have a long leash on the ninth inning.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 18:42:28 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The trend doesn't exactly make sense since Turner ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) is a right-handed batter, but it is hard to argue with his numbers dating back to last year. Don't hesitate to plug him into your lineup at FantasyScore whenever he draws a friendly matchup against a righty.
Thu, 02 Jul 2015 06:38:50 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Alvarez is a hard-throwing 19-year-old that will take some time to develop. He has a high ceiling, though, and is worth consideration in dynasty formats.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 17:02:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Frias ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) went 1-3 in six starts with a 4.50 ERA during the month of June and hasn't pitched beyond the sixth inning in any of his last four games. He allowed three runs and seven hits in five innings in his last start against the Diamondbacks Tuesday, June 30, but struggled with his control, walking three batters while only striking out one. Avoid him in FantasyScore for the foreseeable future.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:51:55 -0700
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.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:44:04 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Guerrero ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has plenty of power with 10 home runs and 30 RBI on the year in part-time duty (143 at-bats), but he hit only .220 (11-for-50) with a home run and nine RBI in June. Regardless, he's a value pick on FantasyScore in a starting role tonight.
Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:34:09 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had only four hits in 18 at-bats in June as a bench option for LA, but he is hitting .300 (9-for-30) with two of his four home runs against southpaws this year. He's not a bad pick on FantasyScore tonight as a value play hitting in the heart of the Dodgers order.
