SCOTT VAN SLYKE RUMORS

Dodgers 6, Rockies 5: Scott Van Slyke’s Speed Seals Walkoff

The result of today’s game was meaningless, so we’ll get to how the Dodgers won 6-5 behind Scott Van Slyke‘s unlikely speed in a minute. However, the far more important part was the health of two Dodger starting infielders. In the bottom of the first, Dee Gordon hit a ground ball. He grimaced, running gingerly to first base. After he was out, he was removed from the game...

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 hurting and their reluctance to recall Scott Van Slyke is curious

The Dodgers are hurting -- big time. Adrian Gonzalez has been scratched the last couple games, Jerry Hairston needed stitches after tripping over a bag in his hotel room and subsequently hitting his head on a desk. He also came out in the fifth inning of Saturday's game after he felt a "tweak" in his groin. That, combined with Mark Ellis still having not been...

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. This move left me and a lot of Dodger fans scratching their heads. Why? Because Van Slyke is one of the few options the Dodgers have to play first base and both outfield corner positions. The right-hander also possesses...
