Team News
Mookie Betts To Lead Off For Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said that outfielder Mookie Betts will be the team's primary leadoff hitter in 2019. Betts has hit leadoff in 562 of his career 780 at-bats. The 2018 American League MVP and four-time All-Star is moving to the top of perhaps the best lineup in baseball. He hit .295/.391/.524 with 29 home runs, 80 RBI, 135 runs scored and 16 stolen bases in 150 games last year. As such, Betts should be a top-five fantasy draft pick in the first round for his ability to contribute across the board for fantasy owners. It could be another huge season for the 27-year-old in his first year in Hollywood.

Kenley Jansen Working On Slider In Camp

Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen threw a bullpen session on Friday with Rick Honeycutt, Orel Hershiser and Joel Peralta in order to work on his slider. Jansen said he worked on his cutter and two-seamer in the offseason, but he said he needs to devote some time to improving his slider. Jansen had a career-high 3.71 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 11.4 K/9 with 33 saves in 51 outings last season. The three-time All-Star has slipped a bit in the last two years with ERAs over 3.00, but Jansen is still a top-five fantasy closer that could earn the top spot easily when all is said and done in 2020 if he has three putaway pitches to work with.

Jimmy Nelson Throws Successful Bullpen

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Jimmy Nelson (back, groin) came out of his bullpen session on Friday healthy, according to manager Dave Roberts. Nelson is a little behind the other starters in camp as he competes for the No. 5 rotation spot, but he could still be ready for Opening Day as long as he doesn't have a setback. The right-hander had a fine season in 2017 with the Brewers before suffering an injury that kept him out of 2018 entirely. He didn't pitch much in 2019 either. Nelson would be attractive for the fact that he's pitching for the Dodgers in a pitcher's park if he makes the rotation, but he'd still be more of a depth rotation arm in deep mixed and NL-only leagues.

Joc Pederson Dealing With Sore Hip

Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Joc Pederson (hip) had a light day on Friday to receive treatment for a sore right hip, which he said was a minor injury. Pederson should be just fine as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks in spring training. After a nixed trade to the Angels, the left-handed slugger will remain with the Blue to start the season. With playing time in question against southpaws on a loaded Dodgers roster, Pederson's ceiling may be limited as long as he remains in LA. But he's still just inside the top 50 fantasy outfielders at RobotBaller and can be an asset for his power later in mixed league drafts. He's also a perfect DFS streamer against righties, especially if he hits near the top of the batting order.

Dustin May Expected To Throw A Bullpen Session On Sunday

Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Dustin May (side) will hopefully throw a bullpen session on Sunday as he continues to recover from muscle soreness. Thankfully, the 22-year-old's injury is not a long-term ailment. May is one of the best prospects in the Dodgers' system, and he will get an opportunity in the starting rotation at some point this season. Unfortunately, due to the team's depth, the expectation is that May will start the season in the minor leagues. He will have considerable fantasy value when he joins the rotation, but until then, he is a viable stash option in deeper formats.
