Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke is hitless in 12 at-bats against Colorado starter Jorge De La Rosa.
Insight: Van Slyke is hitting the ball well this season (.268, 8 HR, 15 RBI in 112 at-bats, but this matchup should be avoided.
 
6/9/2014 10:39:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke went 3-for-3 with two homers, two walks, four RBI and three runs Monday against the Reds.
Insight: Van Slyke is now second to Yasiel Puig among Dodgers outfielders in home runs with six, which says a lot because he has just 72 at-bats while Matt Kemp has 193, Andre Ethier has 175 and Carl Crawford has 150. He's also walked 18 times and has a 1.060 OPS.
 
6/9/2014 3:03:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke will get the start on Monday in center field.
Insight: Van Slyke is batting .246 this season with a .924 OPS though he has never faced Reds left-hander Tony Cingrani.
 
5/16/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke ought to get a spot start on Friday as he's 5-for-13 (.385) with two doubles and three homers versus Arizona left-hander Wade Miley.
Insight: Van Slyke offers power to fantasy owners when he gets a chance to play, but its a crowded Dodgers outfield and he's No. 5 on the depth chart. He's batting .255 this season with a .949 OPS. He's worth a flier IF he's in the starting lineup.
 
4/18/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke ought to get a spot start on Friday as he's 4-for-11 (.364) with two doubles and two homers versus Arizona left-hander Wade Miley.
Insight: Van Slyke offers power to fantasy owners when he gets a chance to play, but its a crowded Dodgers outfield and he's No. 5 on the depth chart. He's batting .313 this season with a 1.138 OPS. He's worth a flier if he's in the starting lineup.
 
4/5/2014 12:50:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke will get a start in left field on Saturday.
Insight: Given Andre Ethier's .125 batting average versus Madison Bumgarner this is no surprise. Van Slyke offers power to fantasy owners. He he seven last year in 129 at-bats with an .807 OPS.
 
3/22/2014 9:47:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke got the start in left field with Carl Crawford not in Australia and made the most of it with a double and a homer in the team's season opener.
Insight: Van Slyke posted seven homers and a .807 OPS in 129 at-bats last season, but as the fifth outfielder on the team, barring injury, doesn't appear to have a way to get enough at-bats for fantasy owners to roster him.
 
7/20/2013 3:52:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke will get the start in left field with Carl Crawford sidelined.
Insight: Van Slyke may only be a starter for one game as Matt Kemp is expected back on Sunday. He is batting .247 with six homers and an .838 OPS in 85 at-bats this season.
 
6/28/2013 8:05:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles outfielder and occasional first baseman Scott Van Slyke has returned from the disabled list.
Insight: He missed about two weeks with a shoulder ailment. With Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier in the outfield and Adrian Gonzalez at first base, there won't be a whole lot of opportunities for Van Slyke (.221, 6 HR, 11 RBI) to contribute. Fantasy owners can ignore him for now.
 
5/20/2013 12:12:00 PM
Description: Dodgers OF/1B Scott Van Slyke left Sunday's game with a leg injury and is questionable for Monday's game against Milwaukee.
Insight: Van Slyke is batting .267 with three home runs since being called up a week ago. He's been a solid .300 hitter in the minors (.397 at Albuquerque this season) and with the Dodgers looking for an offensive spark he's gotten a chance to show his talents this week.
 
5/8/2013 3:30:00 PM
Description: Dodgers minor league 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke continues to pound Pacific Coast League pitching, batting .400 with nine home runs, 28 RBI and a 1.249 OPS through 32 games.
Insight: Van Slyke batted .348 in 2011 and .327 last season at Albuquerque before struggling in a short stint with the Dodgers where he hit .167 in 54 at-bats. Considering the Dodgers are 28th of 30 teams in runs per game (3.41) and 27th in home runs (23) eventually they are going to have to find a spot for him.
 
4/12/2013 1:58:00 PM
Description: Dodgers minor outfielder Scott Van Slyke has set a torrid early pace, even for Pacific Coast League hitting, batting .571 with four home runs and 14 RBI through his first eight games.
Insight: Van Slyke batted .348 in 2011 and .327 last season at Albuquerque before struggling in a short stint with the Dodgers where he hit .167 in 54 at-bats. If he keeps hitting like this, the Dodgers are eventually going to have to give him another shot.
 
5/16/2012 1:36:00 PM
Description: Dodgers outfielder Scott Van Slyke earned his first MLB start on Tuesday night after crushing Pacific Coast League pitching for the first month of the season. He played right field and batted fifth, but went 0-for-4.
Insight: Van Slyke was batting .336 with 8 HR, 25 RBI and a 1.034 OPS for the Albuquerque Isotopes. Unless he falls flat on his face he could get quite a few starts with Matt Kemp on the DL.
