Fantasy Impact: Gonsolin has missed over a month with a forearm strain. He has thrown several live simulated games and made a rehab start in Triple-A on Tuesday. He will be on a pitch count and only threw 27 pitches. He could possibly throw three innings in his start, but he is not likely to be a factor for fantasy purposes.

Fantasy Impact: Thompson will be away from the team for a day due to personal reasons. Miguel Vargas is starting in left field in Thompson's absence.


Julio Urias pitched six innings on Wednesday night, striking out five, walking two, and giving up six hits for zero earned runs as he took the no-decision in the Dodgers' 1-0 win over the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Urias was unable to pick up the win on Wednesday but it was more due to a lack of offense than to his pitching ability. The Dodgers' pitcher has pitched to the tune of an dominate 2.17 ERA, which is paired with his WHIP of 0.96, both numbers which rank in the top 10 in the league. The 26-year-old is looking fantastic at the right time as the Dodgers near the playoffs as the destined 1 seed, Urias will get one more warm-up start prior to playoffs and it will come against the Rockies on October 3rd.

Trea Turner went 3-for-5 with a double, two singles and two runs scored in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Turner hasn't been his usual consistent self as of late, but part of that is due to the fact that he is no longer playing every day with the Dodgers having their postseason spot locked down. The shortstop is now 6-for-24 in his last seven games, but his season-long batting average still sits at an impressive .302 when paired with his 20 homers and 25 stolen bases. He will likely see reduced playing time heading into the postseason, but he should continue to rake when he is in the lineup.

Craig Kimbrel picked up the loss after allowing three walks, including a walk with the bases loaded to give San Diego the win, and striking out one in the 10th inning of Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Kimbrel was given the task to send the game to the 11th inning on Tuesday, but yet again he had trouble in the pressure situation. After getting Manny Machado to strike out with runners on the corners and two outs, the reliever proceeded to walk the next two batters he faced, bringing home the winning run. The 34-year-old has not been reliable in the slightest this season, as seen by his 4.02 ERA and his 1.36 WHIP. Given that he was taken out of the primary closer role for the Dodgers, he cannot be trusted in fantasy for the final week of the regular season.

Tyler Anderson did not factor into the decision after allowing two runs on three hits while striking out three in six innings of Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Padres.

Fantasy Impact: Anderson's two earned runs came in the first inning, and he was able to buckle down with five scoreless after that. The lefthander has been magnificent as of late, boasting a 1.79 ERA and a WHIP of 0.95 over his last seven outings. On the year, he carries a 2.54 ERA and an even WHIP of 1.00 to go with his 15-4 record. He will look to keep it rolling with his final start of the regular season against the Rockies on Sunday.

Andre Jackson pitched three innings on Sunday, striking out three, and giving up two hits for zero earned runs as he earned the save in the Dodgers' 4-1 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Jackson earned his first save of the season on Sunday, and more may come as the team has moved to a committee approach when it comes to the teams closer. The Dodgers' reliever has pitched to the tune of an 0.00 ERA with a WHIP of 1.24, however he has pitched in just three games this season and so he should not yet be rostered in dynasty leagues.

Michael Grove pitched five innings on Sunday, striking out three, walking one, and giving up three hits for one earned run as he picked up the win for the Dodgers in their 4-1 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Grove picked up his first win of the season as he now sits with a record of 1-0 on the year. The Dodgers' pitcher has pitched to the tune of an 4.07 ERA with a WHIP to go along of 1.40. The 25-year-old has struggled with limiting the deep ball this season as he has a HR/9 of 1.80. Grove will next take the mound against the Rockies on October 3rd so long as the rotation stays the way it is.

Clayton Kershaw pitched six innings on Saturday, striking out seven, walking one, and giving up seven hits for two earned runs as he picked up the win in the Dodgers' 6-2 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Kershaw picked up his 10th win of the season on Saturday as he saw his record improve to 10-3 on the year. The Dodgers' pitcher has pitched to the tune of an 2.42 ERA with a WHIP of 0.95. The 34-year-old should be streamed for every start he makes, including for his next against the Rockies on October 1st.

Miguel Vargas went 1-for-4 at the plate on Saturday, hitting a two-run homer, and striking out once as the Dodgers went on to beat the Cardinals in an 6-2 game.

Fantasy Impact: It took Vargas 12 games to hit his first home run as a Dodger, and it will now be left to be seen if this type of success can continue. The Dodgers' first basemen has hit to the tune of an .179 BA with an OPS of .482 to go along with it. The 22-year-old should not rostered in redraft or in dynasty leagues at the moment.

Will Smith went 2-for-4 at the plate on Saturday, hitting a solo homer along with a triple en rout to the Dodgers' 6-2 win over the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Smith hit his 23rd home run of the season on Saturday, raising his RBI total to 84 on the year, both of which rank among the upper tier in the league. The 27-year-old has swung the bat to a terrific .264 BA with an OPS of .827 to pair. The Dodgers' catcher should not be traded as he is easily ranked in the top-3 at his position in the league.

Dustin May has been placed on the injured list due to lower back tightness. (Source: Bill Plunkett on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: May's return from Tommy John surgery excited many fantasy managers, but his 30 MLB innings have been sub-par. In May's most recent outing, he allowed five earned runs in four innings against the Diamondbacks. It is possible that May's back could have been an issue in recent starts.

Andrew Heaney pitched 3 2/3 innings on Friday, striking out five, walking two, and giving up four hits for four earned runs as he took the loss for the Dodgers in their 11-0 loss to the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Heaney was on the wrong side of history Friday, a very exciting game for Albert Pujols as he took the Dodgers pitcher deep for his 699th homer eventually clubbing for his 700th later in the game. The Dodgers' pitcher has pitched to the tune of an 3.06 ERA with a WHIP of 1.08. The 31-year-old can be streamed in every start he makes, which includes his next start on the bump against the Rockies on September 30th.

Blake Treinen is not progressing how the Dodgers hoped and will be shut down for two days. (Source: Fabian Ardaya on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Treinen was supposed to be activated on Thursday but has not progressed well. The team will see how he feels in a couple of days, but time is running low for Treinen to return during the regular season.

Mookie Betts went 1-for-4 at the plate on Wednesday, hitting a solo homer, and striking out once as the Dodgers went on to lose to the Diamondbacks in a 6-1 game.

Fantasy Impact: Betts hit his 35th home run of the season on Wednesday night, while in the process he raised his RBI total to 79 on the year both numbers which rank well above league average. The Dodgers' outfielder has swung the bat well to a BA of .270 that is paired with his OPS of .888. The 29-year-old should be left in lineups and is a fantasy asset that will carry managers through their fantasy playoffs.

Fantasy Impact: Graterol has not pitched since August 28 after dealing with elbow inflammation. Injuries have limited Graterol to just 44.2 innings pitched. His return instantly improves the Dodgers' bullpen that has been plagued with injures.
