Dee Gordon said his hip feels fine and he is cleared to run.

Gordon suffered a pelvic strain last Friday and the Dodgers immediately rules out the final two games of the season for him. With the NLDS not starting until Friday, Gordon will have had a full week to rest and recover. He should be back atop the order and playing second base when the Dodgers open up against the Cardinals.

Dee Gordon (hip) has a good chance to play in the first game of the National League Division series Friday, according to manager Don Mattingly.

He's dealing with a pelvic strain right now, so the Dodgers will simply take it day by day. He'll continue to test it out right up until the first game of the NLDS which is Friday.

Third baseman Juan Uribe served as the Dodgers manager Sunday, going so far as making pitching changes.

It is difficult to tell if the Dodgers were trying to prepare Uribe for a post-playing career, or if they were simply having fun on the last day of the season. In any event Don Mattingly's job seems secure.

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-2 with a home run, double, three RBI and two runs scored in the Dodgers win over the Rockies on Sunday. 

Gonzalez is one of the most reliable men in the business. He puts up similar numbers year-after-year and continues to be a great value pick in fantasy baseball. While his average has gone down each of the past three years, his home run and RBI totals have gone up each year. Expect Gonzalez's numbers next year to be similar to this year, and be drafted right around the same round he was going in 2014.

Roger Bernadina went 2-for-2 with a home run and four RBI in the Dodgers victory over the Rockies on Sunday. 

Bernadina didn't see much action this season so he spent the majority of his fantasy season on the waiver wire. He isn't an everyday player, and doesn't have much going for him in terms of fantasy purposes. While he did collect two hits and four RBIs today, he won't start in the post-season for the Dodgers, and his future with the team remains in question. A very quiet year from Bernadina, who will go undrafted in the majority of leagues in 2015.

Matt Kemp went 2-for-2 with a home run and two RBI in the Dodgers victory over the Rockies on Sunday. 

Kemp was a huge question mark for fantasy owners in 2014. Was he worth taking a flier on, in hopes that he would return to his glory years, or would he turn out to be a waste of a draft pick. Those who took fliers on him were rewarded. A .287 average, 25 home runs, 89 RBIs, and eight stolen bases are pretty great numbers for any player. Kemp enjoyed a successful 2014, and should be drafted earlier than this past year in 2015. A great bounce back season for Matt Kemp.

Zack Greinke moved to 17-8 after giving up one run on four hits and a walk with six strikeouts over five innings in the Dodgers win over the Rockies on Sunday. 

Greinke is one of, if not the best #2 starting pitchers in the game today. He and Clayton Kershaw provide a lethal 1-2 punch that leaves other line ups baffled. He ended 2014 with a quality start and will look to go deep into October with the rest of his teammates. He will start one of the first three playoff games for the Dodgers, and he will be drafted as a #2 pitcher in fantasy leagues again next year. He ends the year with a 2.71 ERA and he was the second best pitcher on the Dodgers' staff this year.

Hyun-Jin Ryu threw a bullpen session on Sunday and did not report any discomfort in his shoulder.

It looks like Ryu is on track to pitch sometime in the playoffs. After a breakout rookie season, Ryu was even better in 2014, ending the season with a 4.79 K/BB rate, 2.62 FIP and 3.03 xFIP.
