Tim Lincecum fell to 5-5 on the year after allowing four runs on seven hits and a wlk with one strikeout over six innings against the Diamondbacks on Friday.
Lincecum recent struggles continued on Friday night, having now fallen to 1-2 over his last five starts. he is now sporting a 4.90 ERA and 1.48 WHIP through his first 15 starts with an unimpressive 77:35 K:BB rate through 82.2 innings. Although fantasy owners can live with his strikeout rate, the other areas of his game are far to inconsistent to make him worth starting on a regular basis. He will look to get back on track when he takes on the Padres next week. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Meyers Leonard will start for injured Noah Vonleh on Monday.
He offensively plays like a stretch four, providing plenty of space for the Blazers guards to operate, however on defense Leonard is rather stout considering his inconsistent playing time. With Vonleh out, Leonard will be expected to play more often, while providing the Blazers with some much-needed size in the frontcourt. Because of his above-average three-point shooting for his size, Leonard might be worth a look in very deep leagues, or for daily players who are strapped on a very tight budget on Monday night.

Dodgers re-signed RHP Chin-Hui Tsao to a minor league contract.
Tsao posted some solid numbers at Triple-A last season, recording seven saves and a 2.77 ERA. At 34 years of age, he likely won't be getting much better than that, however his production seems solid enough to warrant him a major league roster spot if someone in the Dodgers bullpen gets injured during 2016. Having said all of this, he should be a non-factor in all fantasy formats going forward. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Dodgers signed IF Brandon Hicks to a minor league contract.
Boasting a career batting average of .153, Hicks doesn't really have a good reputation to fall back on in terms of organizational trust. Everything he accomplishes from here on out will be off of merit and not by being gifted opportunities. Don't bet on him to do much more for the Dodgers than fill out the Triple-A roster.
