Dodgers | Yasiel Puig unaffected by off-the-field story

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 11:54:42 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig said he's unaffected by a story that details his escape from Cuba, including details that say he's receiving death threats from the human traffickers that smuggled him into Mexico. "I feel normal," Puig said in Spanish. "I'm focused on baseball and giving the best of myself to the team and, hopefully, everything turns out well on the field. Those things that are happening aren't affecting me."

Fantasy Tip: As an owner of Puig, you have to wonder how this development will affect his play, if at all. It hasn't been the kind of start most expected for the Cuban outfielder, but it's still early in the season.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen toes the edge

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 05:14:50 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers CL Kenley Jansen allowed a run and had two runners on before nailing down the 2-1 victory Thursday, April 17. He took the loss earlier in the week, and his ERA sits at 5.00.

Fantasy Tip: We wouldn't say he's in danger of losing his job at all. However, the plights of a closer can take a toll. Jansen has never really failed at this level. It could be mechanical or poor luck.

Dodgers | Don Mattingly concerned about Yasiel Puig

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:27:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he worries about OF Yasiel Puig after reports surfaced Wednesday, April 16, that reports he has received death threats from human traffickers that helped him defect from Cuba in 2012. "If you care about Yasiel, you worry about it," Mattingly said. "There's some serious stuff that he has to deal with. I think you have to worry about it if you care about him as a person. You worry about what he's going through."

Fantasy Tip: We'll never know if all the details of the report on Puig are true or how some of these allegations are weighing on his mind or affecting his play. As long as he's in the lineup, he needs to be in yours. Bottom line.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw throws bullpen

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:25:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (back) tossed 35 pitches during his bullpen session Thursday, April 17, mixing in breaking pitches.

Fantasy Tip: Kershaw's body language looked great, and it didn't seem like his back was giving him problems at all. If he doesn't have any setbacks, Kershaw should be back in a few weeks.

Dodgers | Hanley Ramirez sitting

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 09:29:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (hand) is out of the lineup Thursday, April 17. Also sitting are OFs Carl Crawford and Andre Ethier.

Fantasy Tip: The good news for Hanley is that the X-rays on his hand were negative after he was hit by a pitch Wednesday night. Check back for updates on his condition. If it's a long-term injury, Dee Gordon or Chone Figgins could lock down the 6.

Dodgers | Dee Gordon off to strong start

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 06:13:32 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 2B Dee Gordon leads the majors with 10 steals in his first 13 games. He's also hitting .404 in 47 at-bats.

Fantasy Tip: Now might be a good time to sell high for a proven commodity. Gordon could continue his base-stealing tear. However, he has yet to prove that he can sustain a high average in the bigs.

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 17:59:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig was not in the lineup Wednesday, April 16, against the San Francisco Giants. Manager Don Mattingly said it was not because of the ball Puig did not run out Tuesday, April 15, but rather because he has never faced San Francisco Giants SP Ryan Vogelsong.

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 15:48:31 -0700

Dodgers | Yasiel Puig receiving threats, civil lawsuits

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 13:44:54 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Yasiel Puig has received threats from the human traffickers who helped him defect from Cuba to Mexico in 2012, according to an ESPN The Magazine investigation. There is also a civil lawsuit filed against Puig that accuses him of wrongfully accusing a man of attempting to set up a defection.

Fantasy Tip: Puig has been through a lot in order to defect Cuba and start a baseball career in the major leagues, which may explain some of his on- and off-the-field antics as a youngster.

Dodgers | Clayton Kershaw getting closer

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 08:49:48 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers SP Clayton Kershaw (back) hit 85 mph with his fastball Tuesday, April 15, and he will attempt to mix in breaking pitches off flat ground Wednesday, April 16, and throw another bullpen session Thursday, April 17. Kershaw could embark on a minor league rehab assignment soon after that. "It feels like we're getting close, but I don't know for sure," Kershaw said. "We're trying to raise the ceiling a little bit every day."

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Kershaw is throwing three straight days is great, but he's still a few weeks away from returning. He'll be a nice addition then when, hopefully, he's back to 100 percent.
