Los Angeles Dodgers DFS Notes
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters that he doesn't envision using Julio Urías before the eighth inning during Wednesday's NL Wild Card Game against the Cardinals. With veteran ace Max Scherzer on the mound and the Dodgers' loaded bullpen fully rested, it seems like Urías won't be an option in relief until the later stages of the winner-take-all contest. The dynamic 25-year-old southpaw was a versatile weapon out of the bullpen during the team's World Series run last year and could be called upon to record some critical outs on Wednesday night in a high-leverage situation.
San Francisco Giants DFS Notes
Buster Posey hit a two-run homer in the first inning to set the tone for the Giants in Friday's win over the Dodgers. Posey went to the opposite field for the homer, which is awfully tough for a right-handed hitter at Oracle Park. It was his fifth career postseason homer and first since the 2012 World Series.
