Fantasy Impact: Pederson was dealing with a hip issue before spring training came to a halt. However, the slugging lefty had already returned to minor league action before the stoppage. Pederson, who hit 36 homers last year, is set to turn 28 in April.

Fantasy Impact: May spent some of spring training dealing with soreness in his side but the 22-year-old will now be ready to go when (if) players can report to camp again this year. The top prospect isn't expected to start the season in the Dodgers' rotation but will be on the short list of replacements if anyone suffers an injury at some point.

Clayton Kershaw pitched four scoreless innings against the Tijuana Toros (a Mexican minor-league team) Monday, allowing three hits while striking out four.

Fantasy Impact: Kershaw reached 67 pitches in the outing, and mostly dominated the minor league opponents he faced. He will take the mound for the Dodgers on Opening Day.

Alex Wood was confirmed as the Dodgers' fifth starter by manager Dave Roberts on Monday. (Source: Jorge Castillo on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wood has flashed increased velocity this spring after working out with driveline baseball this offseason. He provides some nice value in the Dodgers' rotation, but health is always a concern for him. Also, the Dodgers are notoriously cagey with their starting pitching.

Mookie Betts (illness) has rejoined the team and could serve as the designated hitter Monday against the Padres. (Source: Ken Gurnick on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Betts has been battling a stomach bug, and initially was not planning on rejoining the team until Wednesday. Now, it seems that he could possibly return earlier. Regardless, Betts's availability for Opening Day won't be impacted.

Walker Buehler allowed two runs on three hits and two walks across 2.1 innings Thursday against the Athletics. He struck out two.

Fantasy Impact: The major blow was a Matt Chapman opposite-field homer in the first inning. Buehler settled down after that, but he struggled with command throughout the outing. Buehler is poised for a strong season, so he'll put this start in the rearview mirror.

Justin Turner (hand) is expected to return to game action Friday against Seattle. (Source: Ken Gurnick on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Turner was hit in the hand by a pitch in Wednesday's game, and subsequently had X-rays taken, which came back negative. After receiving Thursday off, he's slated to return to the lineup Friday.

Cody Bellinger (back) is in the Dodgers' lineup on Thursday versus the Athletics. (Source: Bill Plunkett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Bellinger has been out of Cactus League play for a few days after developing a knot in his back over the weekend. He is fully expected to be fine moving forward.

Chris Taylor suffered a setback in his recovery from a sore right forearm Wednesday. (Source: Ken Gurnick on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Dodgers have said that Taylor won't return to game action until he's back to 100 percent. Regardless, Taylor is expected to fill a utility role in both the infield and the outfield for the Dodgers.

Julio Urias allowed two unearned runs in two-thirds of an inning Monday against the Reds. He allowed one hit, one walk, and struck out one.

Fantasy Impact: Justin Turner's error takes a lot of the blame for the runs scored, but Urias did not look sharp Monday. His status does not seem at risk, however, as Dave Roberts has assured Urias will begin the season in the rotation.

Category: Game Recaps

David Price allowed two runs in 1.1 innings against the Reds Monday, surrendering three hits and two walks while striking out three.

Fantasy Impact: Despite the rough outing, Price indicated that he felt good after pitching Monday. He said his circulation and hand felt good and comfortable. Price figures to slot in at number three in the Dodgers' rotation.

Kenley Jansen has retired all nine batters he's faced this spring, and has struck out six. Jansen is throwing fewer cutters this spring and is instead focusing on mixing his fastball and slider. (Source: Michael J. Duarte on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jansen has been lights out this spring with this next pitch mix. There have also been reports of Jansen showing increased velocity. All signs are pointing to a bounceback season for Jansen, who posted a career-worst 3.71 ERA in 2019.

Jimmy Nelson has been shut down from throwing after experiencing lower body discomfort after a bullpen session on Wednesday. (Source: Ken Gurnick on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Nelson has dealt with a myriad of injuries to begin camp, all related to the groin / lower body. This shutdown puts Nelson in a precarious position to work towards securing a rotation or bullpen spot for the Dodgers come Opening Day.

Zach McKinstry has impressed manager Dave Roberts and could potentially earn a callup at some point during the 2020 season. (Source: Brook Smith of Dodgers Nation)

Fantasy Impact: McKinstry broke out in the minors in 2019, batting .300 with 19 home runs and 78 RBI across Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City. McKinstry would only add to the Dodgers' abundance of versatile defenders with solid bats.

Category: Rumors

Gavin Lux has not yet cemented a starting role in the Dodgers' infield, according to manager Dave Roberts. (Source: Ken Gurnick on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lux remains the favorite to start at second base, but Roberts 'stopped short' of handing the title over to Lux this early in Spring Training. This is likely just a diplomatic statement by Roberts, but it leaves open the possibility of another Dodger potentially nabbing the starting job from Lux.

Category: Rumors

The Dodgers have given Max Muncy a three-year extension worth $26 million with a $13 million club option for 2023. The move buys out his arbitration years plus one year of free agency with the option.

Fantasy Impact: A good move, Muncy has popped 70 home runs over the last two years and will continue to get on base (.374 OBP) in front of a powerful Dodger lineup, he scored 101 runs last year. Muncy is easily a top ten fantasy option at second base and don’t forget he can help at the corner spots, too.

Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic confirms Ross Stripling is also headed to the Angels as part of the Joc Pederson trade. (Source: Ken Rosenthal on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: It was reported last night that Pederson was on his way to the Angels. Bob Nightengale of USA Today was the first to mention today that Stripling was also part of the deal. This is a big win for Stripling’s fantasy value since the Dodgers were always looking to cap his innings despite his success as a starter. Similar to the increase in fantasy value that Kenta Maeda will receive with the Twins, fantasy players should also be more excited about Stripling moving forward.

The Los Angeles Dodgers have traded pitcher Kenta Maeda to the Minnesota Twins as part of the Mookie Betts-David Price deal, per ESPN’s Jeff Passan. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Maeda heads to Minnesota as part of a three-team trade involving the Red Sox and the Dodgers. His fantasy value takes a small hit moving from the National League to the American League, but Maeda should slot right in middle of Minnesota’s rotation. The 31-year old owned a 10-8 record with a 4.04 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 169 strikeouts across 153 2/3 innings in 2019.

Jeff Passan of ESPN confirms the Red Sox have acquired Alex Verdugo from the Dodgers as part of the Mookie Betts trade. (Source: Jeff Passan on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Dodgers wind up with Betts and starter David Price. The Red Sox get Verdugo and Twins prospect Brusdar Graterol. Meanwhile Minnesota lands Kenta Maeda as part of this three team deal. This trade likely helps Verdugo from a fantasy perspective as he'll get regular playing time in Boston. In 2019 the 23-year-old hit .294 with an .817 OPS, 12 homers, and four steals in 343 at bats.

Corey Seager signed a one-year, $7.6 million contract with the Dodgers on Friday, avoiding arbitration. (Source: Mike DiGiovanna on Twitter)

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.
