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 ...

Dodgers DFA Scott Van Slyke, Trade In The Works?

The Dodgers have designated Scott Van Slyke for assignment. The move was made earlier today to make room on the 40-man roster for the newly acquired Skip Schumaker.
