  • Dustin May Set For Final Rehab Start On Sunday

    Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Dustin May (elbow) will make one final rehab start with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday before entering the Dodgers' starting rotation. According to manager Dave Roberts, If that goes well during Sunday's start, he's on track to make his season debut during that home series against the Miami Marlins. The 24-year-old allowed one run on three hits (including a solo home run) and a walk with eight strikeouts on just 68 pitches in his previous rehab start. After undergoing Tommy John surgery in late May last season, he continues to work his way back and could make his 2022 debut soon. May owned a 2.74 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 35 strikeouts over 23 innings in 2021.

  • Ryan Pepiot Recalled, Starting On Wednesday

    Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Ryan Pepiot has been recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City. The 24-year-old will take the mound against the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. He's posting an impressive 2.76 ERA with 19 strikeouts over 16 1/3 innings in four starts at the MLB level. The Dodgers are without Clayton Kershaw (back) for a few weeks, so Pepiot could stick in the rotation. Pepiot could be an interesting streaming option and is someone who could be worth snagging off the waiver wire while Kershaw is out.

  • Dustin May Looks Sharp In Tuesday Rehab Start

    Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Dustin May (elbow) put forth a strong effort in his rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Oklahoma City. May pitched 5 innings, allowing one run on three hits (including a solo home run) and a walk with eight strikeouts on just 68 pitches. The 24-year-old is slowly but surely progressing, as he had Tommy John surgery last May. May may need to make at least one more rehab start, but he could be a boost to both the Dodgers' and fantasy managers' rotations when he does return, as he has a career 2.93 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 24.2% strikeout rate in 113 2/3 IP.

  • Chris Taylor Not Starting Tuesday Against Minnesota

    Los Angeles Dodgers infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Minnesota Twins. Since returning from the injured list last Friday, the 31-year-old is 1-for-10 with a double, two RBI, a run, a stolen base, and five strikeouts across three games. He will retreat to the bench on Tuesday. Joey Gallo is starting in left field and batting eighth for the Dodgers. Gallo is 2-for-10 with six strikeouts since being acquired by Los Angeles at the MLB trade deadline. Fantasy managers can use Gallo as a streamer in deep-league formats against Twins right-hander Joe Ryan.

  • Justin Turner To Return On Tuesday

    Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner (abdomen) has been activated from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday. He has been sidelined since July 30 due to an abdominal issue. The veteran infielder will play shortstop and bat second against right-hander Joe Ryan on Tuesday. Infielder Miguel Vargas has been optioned to the minors ahead of Tuesday's game against the Twins. Fantasy managers who are rostering Turner should make sure he's back in their lineup for Tuesday's contest.

  • Miguel Vargas Optioned To Minors

    The Los Angeles Dodgers optioned rookie third baseman Miguel Vargas to the minors on Monday with third baseman Justin Turner (abdomen) on track to return from the injured list on Tuesday. Vargas, the team's No. 5 prospect per MLB Pipeline, only appeared in two games for the Dodgers after being called up. He managed to go 2-for-8 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in those two games, but he'll head back to Triple-A Oklahoma City with Turner ready to return. The 22-year-old can also play third base and first base and was hitting a strong .291/.382/.497 with an .880 OPS, 15 home runs, 72 RBI, 81 runs scored and 12 stolen bases in 94 games at Oklahoma City before his first big-league call-up. Vargas has great bat-to-ball skills and is starting to show his raw power from the right-handed side of the plate.

  • Dodgers Claim Rylan Bannon Off Waivers From Orioles

    The Los Angeles Dodgers claimed third baseman Rylan Bannon off waivers from the Baltimore Orioles on Monday after he was designated for assignment last week. Bannon was originally drafted by the Dodgers in the eighth round in 2017 out of Xavier University. He got his first taste of major league action with the Orioles this year and went 2-for-14 (.143) with five strikeouts and two runs scored in just four games played. In 78 games at Triple-A Norfolk this year, the 26-year-old hit .229/.347/.407 with 11 home runs, 58 RBI, 45 runs scored and six stolen bases in 326 plate appearances. Bannon will attempt to make a name for himself in the Dodgers minor league system moving forward.

  • Dodgers Pick Up Jahmai Jones

    The Los Angeles Dodgers signed former Los Angeles Angels and Baltimore Orioles second base prospect Jahmai Jones (elbow) to a minor league deal last month. The 25-year-old was designated for assignment by the Orioles in May after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his elbow. It remains to be seen if Jones will be ready for spring training next year, but the Dodgers are taking a flier on the second baseman/outfielder. He has played in 29 games with the Angels and Orioles in 2020 and 2021, hitting just .176/.228/.216 with no homers, four RBI, seven runs scored and a stolen base in 79 plate appearances. In 27 games at Triple-A Norfolk this year, he hit .212/.339/.343 with two homers, seven RBI, 15 runs scored and two steals.

  • Yency Almonte Placed On Injured List

    Los Angeles Dodgers relief pitcher Yency Almonte (elbow) has been placed on the 15-day injured list. It's uncertain how the right-hander suffered the injury, but this is a huge blow to the Dodgers bullpen. He currently holds a 1.15 ERA, 0.89 WHIP and 30/10 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 innings. In a corresponding move, the Dodgers have recalled right-hander Andre Jackson from Triple-A. The loss of Almonte won't change much for fantasy managers. Although, the Dodgers bullpen will take a hit with Almonte unavailable for a few weeks.

  • Kevin Pillar Could Return This Season

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Kevin Pillar (shoulder) was expected to miss the rest of the season. However, the veteran outfielder will begin hitting progression in the next few days. Pillar has been sidelined since early June due to a fractured left shoulder. The hope is that Pillar can begin playing in minor league games within the next three or four weeks. There seems to be a chance of Pillar returning to the Dodgers lineup before the end of the regular season. Despite that, it's unlikely that Pillar offers much upside in terms of fantasy baseball. He'll be a nice addition as depth for the Dodgers playoff run, but fantasy managers can ignore him until further notice.

  • Justin Turner Likely To Return On Tuesday

    Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner (abdomen) is on track to return from the injured list on Tuesday, according to manager Dave Roberts. The veteran slugger has been sidelined since July 30. The good news is, Turner is feeling better and appears almost ready to return to the field. The 37-year-old has hit .257/.332/.405 with eight homers and 54 RBI in 86 games. Fantasy managers should check back on Tuesday to see if Turner is cleared to play.

  • Andrew Heaney Falls Shy Of Win Saturday

    Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Andrew Heaney allowed three unearned runs during his club's 8-3 win over the Padres on Saturday, but was credited with a no-decision since he fell one out shy of pitching five innings. Heaney pitched well by retiring nine-straight batters at one point, but a potential inning-ending double play ball that was muffed by Gavin Lux in the fourth allowed three runs to come around to score that inning. Through 28 IP on the year, the lefty owns an outstanding 0.64 and 1.00 WHIP with 37 K, but will likely stay on a pitch count to ease him back in after a shoulder injury sidelined him for most of the year. He'll face off with the Royals in his next scheduled start from Kauffman Stadium next weekend.

  • Clayton Kershaw's MRI Yields Best-Case Scenario

    Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts said that left-hander Clayton Kershaw's (back) MRI exam didn't reveal anything new with his back and called it the "best-case scenario." Kershaw will rest and rehab after he was placed on the injured list on Friday. The future Hall of Famer was pulled from his outing early on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants due to lower back pain. Fantasy managers were likely very concerned at first, given his recent history with back issues, but it looks like this one might not be too significant. However, the Dodgers are unlikely to rush him back, as they'll want him fully healthy down the stretch and for the postseason. But barring any setbacks, Kershaw should pitch again before the regular season is over.

  • Clayton Kershaw Lands On Injured List

    The Los Angeles Dodgers officially placed left-hander Clayton Kershaw (back) on the injured list on Friday. Skipper Dave Roberts said earlier in the day that it was likely that Kershaw would go on the injured list, although the team is hoping his back injury isn't all that serious. The 34-year-old future Hall of Famer left his start early on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants with lower back pain, which is a bit concerning given his history with back issues. Even if the injury isn't deemed serious, the Dodgers won't rush Kershaw back given their big lead over the San Diego Padres in the National League West. The Dodgers will want to keep the veteran southpaw fresh for down the stretch and into the playoffs. In 15 starts in 2022, Kershaw is 7-3 with a 2.64 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 88 strikeouts in 85 1/3 innings. Keep him stashed everywhere.

  • Dustin May To Make Two More Rehab Starts

    Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Dustin May (elbow) will need at least two more minor league rehab starts, according to manager Dave Roberts. May is scheduled to go around four innings in his next outing and then will be stretched out to five innings after that. But after two more rehab starts, May could be reinstated from the 60-day injured list and join the Dodgers starting rotation. The 24-year-old right-hander threw 62 pitches over four innings in his third rehab start for Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, and the Dodgers are bringing him along slowly after he had Tommy John surgery last May. He could be a big boost to LA's rotation when he returns, especially since Clayton Kershaw (back) is expected to land on the injured list. May struck out a career-high 13.7 hitters per nine innings in five starts last year before his injury, so he certainly has big strikeout upside in fantasy.

  • Chris Taylor Activated And Starting Friday

    Los Angeles Dodgers infielder/outfielder Chris Taylor (foot) was reinstated from the injured list on Friday and will start at second base and hit fifth in the batting order against San Diego Padres left-hander Sean Manaea. Taylor was out for a month with a fractured foot, but he'll return on Friday night for the start of a big series against the division-rival Padres in Los Angeles. This will be the 31-year-old's first start of the year on the infield, and he could see more time at second base moving forward to protect his foot. On the year, he's hitting .238/.319/.409 with six home runs, 27 RBI, 32 runs scored and six stolen bases in 252 at-bats. Gavin Lux has been playing second base mostly, but his bat should remain in the lineup regularly despite Taylor's return, as he's hitting .298 on the season in 309 at-bats.

  • Clayton Kershaw Likely To Go On Injured List

    Los Angeles Dodgers skipper Dave Roberts said that left-hander Clayton Kershaw (back) will likely go on the injured list, but he's "optimistic in the sense that, it shouldn't be too long term of being down." Roberts said Kershaw had an X-ray on his back that "wasn't that telling," so he'll also have an MRI exam. The 34-year-old southpaw left his start against the San Francisco Giants early on Thursday with lower back pain, so fantasy managers should expect him to miss at least the next two weeks. The Dodgers have a double-digit lead over the San Diego Padres in the National League West, so there's really no reason for them to push Kershaw, especially considering his history with back issues.

  • Clayton Kershaw Will Undergo Tests On Back

    Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw (back) "got checked up" on one of his warm-up throws in the fifth inning and told trainers his back tightened. According to manager Dave Roberts, he will undergo tests back in Los Angeles on Friday but isn't sure of the severity. The southpaw allowed two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out four in his four innings before exiting. Kershaw has had a history of back issues, and a trip to the injured list "is not out of the question," per Roberts. Overall, Kershaw has been solid this season, posting a 2.66 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP, and an 84:14 K: BB in 81 1/3 innings. Stay tuned for further updates.

  • Gavin Lux Doubles In Thursday's Victory

    Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Gavin Lux collected two hits in four at-bats, including a double, in Thursday's 5-3 win over the San Francisco Giants. He also scored a run and produced an RBI in the contest. Lux is now batting .298 with a .373 on-base percentage, 53 runs, 33 RBI and six stolen bases in 97 games. The 24-year-old only has four home runs and bats near the bottom of the order, but his average, on-base ability and modest speed make him valuable in every fantasy league.

  • Clayton Kershaw Leaves Thursday's Game Early With Injury

    Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Clayton Kershaw (back) left his start early on Thursday against the San Francisco Giants after warming up for the fifth inning with an apparent back injury. Kershaw didn't even wait for the trainer or manager Dave Roberts to get to the mound before walking off. Kershaw gave up two runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out four in his four innings of work before departing. The 34-year-old has a history of back issues, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him land on the injured list. He also missed almost a month with SI joint inflammation earlier this year. The future Hall of Famer has been his normal solid self when on the mound this year, entering the day with a 2.66 ERA, a 0.98 WHIP and an 84:14 K:BB in 81 1/3 innings over his 14 starts. Stay tuned for more details on Kershaw's condition.

  • Miguel Vargas Has Strong Debut

    Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Miguel Vargas made his debut in the big leagues on Wednesday night, slotting in as the designated hitter in the seventh spot in the lineup. He had a strong game, going 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, and a stolen base. It remains to be seen how much playing time Vargas will receive going forward, but his .291/.382/.497 slash line with 15 homers and 12 steals at Triple-A this season suggests that he has the ability to make an all-around contribution at some point, and fantasy managers in keeper and dynasty formats should look to add him off the waiver wire.

  • Joey Gallo Making Dodgers Debut Thursday

    Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joey Gallo is making his debut with the team on Thursday against San Francisco Giants right-hander Jakob Junis, starting in left field and hitting sixth in the batting order. Gallo was dealt from the New York Yankees to the Dodgers at the trade deadline on Tuesday, but he didn't get the starting nod on Wednesday. The 28-year-old left-handed slugger was a disaster in his second season with the Yanks this year, hitting an embarrassing .159/.282/.339 with 12 home runs, 24 RBI, 32 runs scored and two stolen bases in 82 games. The Dodgers are hoping they can help him turn things around at the plate. Nobody is debating that Gallo still has prodigious power, but he'll need to make more consistent contact in order to be useful in the second half of the season with his new team.

  • Dodgers Select Miguel Vargas' Contract

    The Los Angeles Dodgers selected the contract of infielder Miguel Vargas on Tuesday. One of the organization's best prospects, the 22-year-old has spent the 2022 season at Triple-A so far, batting .291 with a .382 on-base percentage, 15 home runs, and 12 stolen bases in 437 plate appearances. Vargas has seen most of his time at third base in the minors, but has also started games at second base and first base this season, as well as in left field. He's certainly someone fantasy managers should be looking to add off the waiver wire in dynasty leagues.

  • Justin Turner Placed On The 10-Day Injured List

    The Los Angeles Dodgers placed third baseman Justin Turner (abdomen) on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. He has been sidelined since July 27 with an abdominal strain. According to Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, Turner could be back for the Twins series next week once he is eligible to come off the injured list. The 37-year-old is slashing .257/.332/.405 with eight home runs, 54 RBI, 42 runs, and a stolen base over 86 games in 2022. The Dodgers recently acquired Joey Gallo from the New York Yankees. Gallo should see an uptick at-bats while Turner is sidelined.

    The Los Angeles Dodgers traded infielder/outfielder Jake Lamb to the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday. He is expected to be in the lineup against right-handers and will provide the Mariners with depth at first base/outfield. The 31-year-old is slashing .239/.338/.433 with two home runs, four RBI, and 10 runs scored in 25 games for the Dodgers. Los Angeles recently acquired Joey Gallo from the Yankees and with too many left-handed bats, sent Lamb to Seattle. Lamb is mainly an option in deep-league formats and can be used as a streamer in plus-matchups.

    According to a tweet from Sports Illustrated's Pat Ragazzo on Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers acquired outfielder Joey Gallo from the New York Yankees for minor league pitcher Clayton Beeter. The outfielder is batting .159 with a .282 on-base percentage, 12 home runs and two stolen bases in 273 plate appearances this season. He'll give the Dodgers another power option in the outfield, but as was the case in New York, he might not see much playing time, especially if he continues to strike out in bunches. Currently, Los Angeles' outfield options on the active roster include Mookie Betts, Cody Bellinger, Trayce Thompson, and James Outman.

This impressive performance surely will turn some heads, but there's no guarantee of playing time going forward.

The veteran third baseman did receive an MRI, which came back clean, but he will remain out until Thursday at the earliest. Turner has appeared in just four games since the All-Star break while dealing with an abdomen issue but he will not go on the injured list. Roberts said they'll keep him on the active roster as his issue isn't getting worse. The team should provide another update before Thursday but it's encouraging news for the veteran.

    Los Angeles Dodgers catcher Will Smith hit his 15th home run of the season Friday, a two-run shot off Colorado Rockies starting pitcher Chad Kuhl. Smith went 2-for-3 in the game with a walk. Smith has slashed .270/.367/.514 with six homers, 13 runs scored, and 20 RBI over his last 30 games, bringing him up to an .823 OPS for the season. He's among the most productive catchers in the league, and he should occupy one of the top spots in fantasy rankings at the position for years to come.

    Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Julio Urias threw seven strong innings against the Rockies at Coors Field Friday, allowing two runs on four hits and no walks to pick up his 10th win of the season in a 5-4 victory. He struck out four batters. Urias now has three consecutive quality starts and has a 2.71 ERA and 0.98 WHIP with 103 strikeouts in 109 2/3 innings this season. He is safely among the top 20 fantasy starters in all formats.

That quickly turned into a one-run lead for the Dodgers, but Kimbrel managed to close the door. He earned his 18th save of the season, but continues to be a shaky option. Fantasy managers in need of saves can hold onto Kimbrel, but he's clearly not in his prime anymore.

Turner is "out of the woods" regarding the injury, according to manager Dave Roberts, but the team doesn't want to push him back too soon.

Turner said that he is just playing it safe, so expect a return to the lineup this weekend. It is unfortunate timing for Turner and his fantasy managers, who will miss out on a game at hitter-friendly Coors Field at a time when Turner is hot at the dish, slashing .400/.485/.545 in July. Keep an eye out this weekend and get Turner back in your lineup if he returns.

He owns a month-long slash line of .388/.450/.706 to go along with six homers, 18 RBI and 17 runs. Thursday's stolen base was his eighth of the year and he's now just two stolen bags shy of his career-high with plenty of baseball left to be played.

He gave up just four hits on the night while striking out four and walking no one, tossing 94 pitches in the victory to improve his record to 11-1. The Dodgers were up 6-0 after two and 11-0 after four, so the left-hander was able top put it on cruise control in this one as he sits with a terrific 2.61 ERA and 0.99 WHIP on the year. 2022 has been a remarkable turnaround for the 32-year-old in his first year in LA as he sets his sights on his upcoming matchup with the Giants next week.

Barring a setback, he will likely go on a rehab assignment soon. Treinen will rejoin the Dodgers bullpen once he returns to action and is expected to serve as the Dodgers' top setup man behind closer Craig Kimbrel.

    Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman/outfielder Edwin Rios (hamstring) will begin his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday, starting at third base and batting second. Rios landed on the injured list on June 3 with a torn hamstring, so he's likely to require a lengthy rehab assignment before the Dodgers consider having him rejoin their active roster. The 28-year-old is unlikely to have a path to regular playing time in LA when he's ready, either. In 86 at-bats with the Dodgers before his injury, Rios was hitting .244/.293/.500 with seven home runs, 17 RBI and 12 runs scored in 27 games played.

For the season the 24-year-old is now hitting .277 with 22 homers, 67 RBI and four stolen bases. Busch is one of the Dodgers top prospects, but like teammate Miguel Vargas, there just isn't a spot for him on the big-league squad at the moment. With the trade deadline approaching in less than a week, Busch is a name to monitor, but at the moment, his best value is in dynasty leagues.

    Los Angeles Dodgers infield/outfield prospect Miguel Vargas continues to swing a hot bat for Triple-A Oklahoma City. On Wednesday, Vargas went 1-for-5 with his 14th longball of the season. Vargas has been the talk of town in regards to minor league players this year and is now hitting .293 with 14 homers and 68 RBI. Despite his impressive season, the Dodgers big-league squad is too talented at the moment and Vargas is unlikely to make an impact without an injury. With less than a week to go until the trade deadline, if Vargas were to be dealt, his value in redraft leagues would improve greatly. For now, he is worth monitoring in redraft leagues and should be rostered in dynasty leagues.
