Latest Update Scott Van Slyke has two hits and drives in one Saturday Sun Sep, 28, 04:53 AM
Is versatile enough to play first base and all three outfield positions. Has good power and plate discipline, so he takes his walks as well. Also has good pedigree as the son of former MLB outfielder Andy Van Slyke.
Flaws: : Isn't as athletic as his father used to be, though he's not bad. Must prove capable of hitting right-handed pitching with consistency at the big-league level in order to play every day (which is a long shot).
Van Slyke is now 6-for-11 with three RBI and three runs scores over his last five games, bringing his stat line up to .297 with 11 home runs and 29 RBI through 209 at-bats. He has proven he can get the job done when give an opportunity, but unless the Dodgers make some roster moves heading into 2015, he is going to continue to be used in a bench role moving forward.
