Latest Update Van Slyke's wife went into labor and he left during game. Wed Sep, 03, 08:53 PM
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 has quietly had a very solid season. If Van Slyke continues to hit it could mean even less playing time for Joc Pederson once rosters expand in September.Analyst: Steve Pimental
