Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Hits first career home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verdugo hit a pinch-hit home run in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

It was his third career hit and first career home run. Verdugo made four straight starts following his callup, but he's been on the bench for the Dodgers' last seven games. He's simply not playing enough to be worthwhile outside of deeper NL-only formats.

Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Making fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verdugo will bat seventh in the order and draw the start in center field Sunday against the Padres.

Verdugo made his MLB debut Friday and has started every game since. With Corey Seager (elbow) on the shelf, Chris Taylor has moved from center field to shortstop, opening the door for the 21-year-old to see regular playing time. Verdugo is 1-for-7 to start his career, but a .825 OPS at the Triple-A level suggests better things at the plate are to come.

Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Batting eighth in big-league debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verdugo will start in center field and bat eighth Friday against the Padres.

With Corey Seager (elbow) ruled out for the weekend, the door is open for Verdugo to make several starts right away following his promotion, as Chris Taylor is needed at shortstop. Verdugo may not have standout power or speed, but he's displayed patience and exceptional contact skills at the upper levels of the minors. The Dodgers were adamant about holding onto him at the deadline.

Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Will make big-league debut Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said Friday afternoon that Verdugo will make his major-league debut Friday night against the Padres, MLB Network Radio reports.

It remains to be seen where Verdugo will slot into the lineup, but it appears his name will be in there somewhere when Roberts reveals his starters for Friday's contest.

Dodgers' Alex Verdugo: Confirmed for Friday arrival
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Dodgers will call up Verdugo from Triple-A Oklahoma City when rosters expand Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

There was previous speculation from J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News that the callup was coming Thursday, but this confirms Friday will mark Verdugo's arrival. The 21-year-old's immediate path to playing time may limit his appeal in most mixed fantasy leagues, but that could change if Corey Seager (elbow) is forced to miss extended time. Verdugo has breezed through Oklahoma City with a .314/.389/.436 performance, accompanied by six home runs, nine stolen bases, 52 walks and only 50 strikeouts across 495 plate appearances. His fantasy ceiling remains a hot subject of debate, especially since the Pacific Coast League often bolsters mediocre bats. However, his makeup points to a potential long-term, major-league starter. Perhaps he'll yield across-the-board value instead of doing so overwhelmingly in a particular stat category. The batting eye improvements he's made the last two seasons attest to his increasingly big-league-ready skills.
