Granderson is not on the Dodgers' World Series roster, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Corey Seager, who missed the NLCS due to a back injury, will take Granderson's place on the roster. The 36-year-old has struggled mightily since joining the Dodgers via trade in August -- hitting just .161/.288/.366 in 132 plate appearances -- and is just 1-for-15 (.088) with eight strikeouts in 15 at-bats this postseason. With Granderson unavailable, the Dodgers will use Chris Taylor, Yasiel Puig, Enrique Hernandez, Andre Ethier and Joc Pederson in the outfield for the Fall Classic.

Granderson is not in the lineup for Game 5 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

As has been the case all postseason, Granderson will head to the bench with a southpaw (Jose Quintana) toeing the rubber for the opposition. Enrique Hernandez will start in left field and bat sixth in his stead. Granderson is coming off an 0-for-4 night with four strikeouts, and is just 1-for-15 (.066) so far in the postseason, so manager Dave Roberts will probably turn elsewhere if he needs a pinch hitter in the latter stages of Thursday's game.

Granderson is not in the lineup for Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cubs on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson -- who has struggled since joining the Dodgers via trade in August -- is just 1-for-11 (.091) so far in the postseason, so he'll open Game 3 on the bench even with a right-hander pitcher (Kyle Hendricks) toeing the rubber for the opposition. In his place, Andre Ethier will start in left field and bat fifth.

Granderson is not in the lineup for Game 2 of the NLDS against the Diamondbacks on Saturday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Granderson will open the game on the bench with a southpaw (Robbie Ray) starting for the opposition. Enrique Hernandez will start in left field and bat fifth in his absence, something that figures to continue throughout the postseason when the Dodgers face a lefty starter.

Granderson is not in the lineup Sunday against the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Granderson is riding a six-game hitting streak but will be replaced in left field by Enrique Hernandez. The 36-year-old is hitting just .183 in September and will need find his stroke quickly if he's going to be a real asset for the Dodgers in the playoffs.

Granderson is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a lefty (Clayton Richard) toeing the rubber for the Padres, Granderson will retreat to the bench for a third straight game. The 36-year-old started on the bench against a righty Tuesday, but he came on as a pinch hitter and delivered a double. In his place, Enrique Hernandez is batting fifth and starting in left field.

Granderson is not in the lineup Tuesday for the second straight day.

EDGE Analysis

It's been a rough go of it this month for Granderson, who owns a .528 OPS in September. He will not start for the third time in four games, and will give way to Andre Ethier on Tuesday.

Granderson is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Padres, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

As has been the case, Granderson will get the day off with a lefty (Travis Wood) toeing the rubber for the opposition. Cody Bellinger will slide into left field to start in Granderson's place.

Granderson is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Giants, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Granderson went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's 5-4 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dave Roberts has stuck with Granderson through his early September struggles (.103/.239/.103 through first 14 games), and he rewarded his manager's decision with two homers over his last four contests. The 36-year-old won't help fantasy owners in the batting average department (batting .206 this season), but he can certainly help in the power department while serving as the Dodgers' primary left fielder.
