  • Dodgers' James Outman: Sitting versus lefty

    Outman is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest versus the Nationals, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Outman got plenty of run against lefties when he was hitting better, but now that he's slumping at the plate he's been on the bench three of the last six times the Dodgers have faced a southpaw. Trayce Thompson will handle center field.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Takes positive step Monday

    Outman went 1-for-2 with an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 6-1 win against Washington.

    Outman entered Monday in the midst of a massive slump, going 4-for-42 with 21 strikeouts over his previous 15 games. He put the ball in play in each of his three at-bats against Washington, producing an RBI with a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. The rookie outfielder's 35.0 percent strikeout rate on the campaign remains a significant roadblock to his success, but Outman has also posted some useful fantasy stats, including nine homers, 29 RBI, 28 runs and six thefts.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Sits amid slump

    Outman is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays.

    With the lefty-hitting Outman mired in a deep slump and with Tampa Bay bringing a lefty (Josh Fleming) to the hill Sunday, it comes as no surprise that the rookie outfielder will stay on the bench for the series finale. Outman has now sat in three of the past four games while he's gone just 4-for-39 with a 40.9 percent strikeout rate over his last 14 contests. Trayce Thompson will replace Outman in center field Sunday.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: On bench Saturday

    Outman is not in the starting lineup Saturday versus the Rays.

    Outman will take a seat after he went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts in Friday's 9-3 loss. He has now gone hitless over 14 at-bats in his last five contests. Jason Heyward will draw the start in center field and bat sixth against Tampa Bay.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Takes seat Wednesday

    Outman is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday's contest against Atlanta, Kirsten Watson of SportsNet LA reports.

    Outman has not had much success as of late with the bat, and his 0-for-4 showing with three strikeouts dropped his slash for the month of May to .179/.273/.328 over 67 at-bats. Jason Heyward will hit sixth and get the start in center field in Outman's absence.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Gets Saturday off

    Outman will be on the bench Saturday against the Cardinals, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Outman is having an excellent rookie season overall, hitting .263/.353/.533 with nine homers and five steals in 46 games. That comes with a 34.1 percent strikeout rate on the year and a 52.4 percent mark across his last six contests, however, so there's reason to worry about how well he'll be able to sustain his hot start. Jason Heyward will take over in center field Saturday.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Launches go-ahead grand slam

    Outman went 2-for-4 with a grand slam, two runs scored and a steal in Wednesday's 7-3 victory over Minnesota.

    Outman led off the fourth inning with a single before swiping his fifth base of the season. He'd then snap a 3-3 tie with a grand slam in the sixth, a 407-foot shot off Emilio Pagan to put the Dodgers ahead for good. Outman's big game snapped a poor stretch where he was 0-for-12 over his previous five outings. He's now slashing an impressive .264/.354/.549 with nine home runs, 28 runs scored and 27 RBI through 164 plate appearances in his rookie campaign.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Not in lineup

    Outman is absent from the Dodgers' lineup for Monday's game against the Twins, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

    Right-hander Pablo Lopez has been tough against both righties and lefties this season but has been more difficult for left-handed batters, so Outman will take a seat. Jason Heyward (also a left-handed batter) is in center field Monday.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Getting breather Friday

    Outman is not in the lineup Friday against the Padres.

    Chris Taylor will play left field and Trayce Thompson will start in center with left-hander Blake Snell on the bump for San Diego. Outman, 25, is sitting on an impressive .281/.374/.578 slash line with eight home runs, 23 RBI, four stolen bases and 26 runs scored through 38 games this year.

  • Dodgers' James Outman: Belts eighth homer Sunday

    Outman went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 5-2 extra-inning win against the Padres.

    Outman delivered in the 10th inning for the Dodgers, blasting a two-run shot to right field to give the team a three-run cushion. It was the outfielder's eighth long ball of the season, tied with Josh Jung for the MLB lead among rookies. Outman has added a .274/.370/.581 slash line, 23 runs, 23 RBI and four stolen bases, with his 32.6 percent strikeout rate being the only notable cause for concern about his outlook moving forward.
