SCOTT VAN SLYKE RUMORS

Arruebarrena Remains A Dodger, As You Should Have Expected

When the Dodgers DFA’d Erisbel Arruebarrena last week, it actually made plenty of sense, even though plenty of people misunderstood it. All a DFA is for a player in his situation is the loss of a 40-man spot, not an exile from an organization. Unless a team claimed him (very unlikely) or wanted to trade for him (somewhat unlikely),  all that was going to happen here would be that...

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

You know me, and you know I put very, very little importance on pitcher-vs-batter stats. One pitcher doesn’t face one batter enough to generate any kind of real sample size, and even if you could, that means that it took place over so many years as to render most of the data irrelevant. Dodgers D’Backs 6:40 p.m. PT Phoenix, Ariz. 2B Gordon ...

Vin Scully Calls Scott Van Slyke Getting A Hot Foot From Dodger Teammates

During today’s 6-0 drubbing of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Los Angeles Dodgers decided to have some fun at the expense of outfielder Scott Van Slyke by giving him a “hot foot”. A “hot foot” is when you take a book of matches and affix it to the heel of a player’s shoe. You light it and wait for him to react to the smell, smoke, or painful burning sensation. Lucky for...

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. Oddly enough, none of the beat writers have had a lot to say about the situation yet, so we don’t know what went into Don Mattingly‘s decision, or what Matt Kemp thinks, or — and probably the most interesting — what Van Slyke himself...
