Dodgers @ D’Backs August 27, 2014: Scott Van Slyke’s Best-Case Scenario

Dodgers D’Backs 6:40 p.m. PT Phoenix, Ariz. 2B Gordon ...

White Sox @ Dodgers June 2, 2014: No Really, Scott Van Slyke Is Playing Center

I know we talked about this just a few hours ago, but apparently it’s not a joke: Scott Van Slyke really and truly is starting in center field.
