Los Angeles Dodgers

NL West

Fantasy Impact: After an injury plagued 2018, Seager played 134 games for the Dodgers last year. He had a somewhat disappointing 2019, slashing .272/.335/.483 with 19 home runs, 87 RBI, 82 runs and one stolen base across 541 plate appearances. If he Seager can stay healthy, he should be productive and come close to his 2016-2017 season totals.

Fantasy Impact: Coming off a season where Bellinger was named National League MVP, he settles with the Dodgers for a one-year $11.5 million contract. It was reported that his contract breaks the record for a first-year arbitration-eligible player. Bellinger was fantastic in 2019, slashing .305/.406/.629 with 47 home runs, 115 RBI, 121 runs and 15 stolen bases across 156 games. He will be surefire top-5 pick in 2020 drafts.

The belief is that the Dodgers won't trade top young player Gavin Lux in any deal this offseason. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Dodgers are certainly lined up to be contenders again in 2020, but they apparently aren't willing to trade the young infielder Lux. After starting the 2019 season in Double-A, Lux made the majors to end the season and held his own. He owns five-tool upside and figures to be a popular player entering 2020 fantasy baseball drafts.

Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman says that Julio Urias will begin the 2020 season in the team's starting rotation. (Source: Jorge Castillo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Urias made eight starts in 2019 with an additional 29 appearances coming out of the bullpen. Overall he posted a 2.49 ERA with 85 strikeouts in 79 2/3 innings. Assuming this plan holds Urias will be a popular fantasy sleeper next spring.

Kenley Jansen is not expected to opt out of the two years and $38 million remaining on his contract. (Source: Jon Heyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jansen regressed in 2019, posting a 3.71 ERA with 33 saves, which was a six-year low. Despite the regression, Jansen should remain the Dodgers closer in 2020.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says Justin Turner (back) will be ready for Thursday's NLDS Game 1. (Source: David Vassegh on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Dodgers are confident Turner will be "able to perform at his level". The 34-year-old struggled in September but was playing injured for most of it.

Rich Hill started and fired three scoreless innings in the Dodgers' regular season finale versus the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Hill struck out four and allowed just one hit. The 39-year-old finishes the season with a 2.45 ERA in 58 2/3 innings pitched. He'll most certainly be on the Dodgers' NLDS roster.

Category: Game Recaps

Max Muncy hit his 35th homer of the season in Saturday's 2-0 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: Muncy finished the game 2-for-3 with a walk. He is now 5-for-11 over his past three games and looks ready for the NLDS, which begins on Thursday.

Category: Game Recaps

Hyun-Jin Ryu improved to 14-5 on Saturday against the Giants, tossing seven shutout innings while allowing just five hits and striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact: Ryu didn't walk anyone in this one, which lowered his ERA to 2.32 on the season. Ryu was absolutely dominant in the first half of 2019 before scuffling a bit in late-August. He'll undoubtedly be a finalist for the National League Cy Young award. However, Jacob deGrom could wind up edging him out for first place.

Category: Game Recaps

Walker Buehler improved to 14-4 on Friday in San Francisco, allowing two runs on five hits over five innings pitched.

Fantasy Impact: Buehler struck out eight and walked four in the outing, which the Dodgers won 9-2. The 25-year-old budding ace finishes the season with a 14-4 record, a 3.26 ERA, and 215 strikeouts in 182 1/3 innings. He’ll likely take the ball in Game 2 of the NLDS next week.

Will Smith went 2-for-4 with a double in the Dodgers' 1-0 win over the Padres on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Smith was one of the hottest hitters in baseball over the summer, but he has cooled off drastically as of late. For the season he's batting .244 with an .876 OPS and 14 homers. He'll enter 2020 as a top-10 fantasy catcher but he'll come with some risk due to this slow finish.

Category: Game Recaps

Kenta Maeda struck out two in a scoreless ninth to pick up the save on Thursday versus the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Maeda's scoreless frame helped preserve the 1-0 Dodgers win. He is expected to pitch out of the bullpen come October.

Category: Game Recaps

Clayton Kershaw picked up the win in his final start of the regular season on Thursday versus San Diego, tossing six scoreless innings while striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact: Kershaw was sensational, as he has been all year, allowing just two hits and a walk. He finishes the regular season with a 16-5 record, a 3.05 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, and 188 strikeouts in 177 1/3 innings pitched. The lefty came into the year as a legitimate health concern but wound up making 28 starts. He wound up being a major draft-day value.

Category: Game Recaps

Ross Stripling started and went three innings on Wednesday versus the Padres, giving up three runs on four hits while striking out seven.

Fantasy Impact: Stripling hasn't pitched more than three innings in an appearance since the middle of the summer. He's expected to be used out of the bullpen for the Dodgers' playoff run.

Category: Game Recaps

Joc Pederson went 1-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, and two runs scored as the Dodgers beat the Padres on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: The homer was Pederson's 33rd of the year. He'll once again enter 2020 as a useful fantasy option whenever he's facing right-handed pitching.

Category: Game Recaps

Tony Gonsolin struck out three over two scoreless innings in Tuesday's win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Gonsolin followed Rich Hill's two scoreless innings with two of his own. He keeps oscillating between the rotation and bullpen but is expected to pitch in relief once the playoffs start. The 25-year-old rookie owns a 3.00 ERA in 39 innings this year.

Category: Game Recaps

A.J. Pollock went 2-for-5 with a three-run homer in the Dodgers' 12-5 win over the Rockies on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Pollock got off to a slow start this year but has come on strong in the second half. He now has 15 homers and an .809 OPS in his first year with the Dodgers.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts says Alex Verdugo (oblique, back) will be shut down for a few more days. (Source: Jorge Castillo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Verdugo landed on the IL back in August with an oblique strain. He then injured his back on his rehab assignment. It's possible he could miss the rest of the regular season and doesn't need to be owned in standard re-draft fantasy leagues.

Category: Injury Updates

Matt Beaty went 2-for-4 with a homer, a double, and two RBI as the Dodgers beat the Giants 5-0 on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Beaty homered off Dereck Rodriguez in the fourth inning. He is now batting .286 with an .835 OPS in limited action for the Dodgers this season. He would certainly have a lot more fantasy value if LA ever gave him everyday at-bats.

Dustin May took a line drive to the head off the bat of Jake Lamb, but was able to walk off the field under his own power. (Source: Richard Morin on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: May entered the game as a relief pitcher, and retired one batter before being struck by the line drive. It was encouraging that he was able to walk off the field without assistance, but he will most likely head to the injured list after further testing.
