Description: Struggling Dodgers infielder Luis Cruz has been designated for assignment.
Insight: You can't hit .127 and keep your job in the major leagues. Obviously, Cruz offers no fantasy value.

Description: Dodgers third baseman Luis Cruz could end up on the bench on Tuesday with backup Juan Uribe having a much better matchup against Padres starter Clayton Richard.
Insight: Cruz is just 1-for-7 versus Richard while Uribe is a career .393 hitter with three homers in their matchups. Cruz is batting just .120 this season in 92 at-bats and has yet to prove he has any fantasy value.

Description: Luis Cruz will start at shortstop for the Dodgers after Justin Sellers made two critical throwing errors Tuesday, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.
Insight: Both Cruz and Sellers have started off 0-for-6. If neither player can cut it at shortstop with Hanley Ramirez out for two months, we should see a Dee Gordon callup. Juan Uribe will take Cruz' place at third base and Skip Schumaker will play second in place of Mark Ellis on Wednesday.
