Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke slowed by injury

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 00:41:37 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (neck) did not start Sunday, July 26, but he came into the game against the New York Mets. Van Slyke is battling a stiff neck following an accident where he hit his head in a taxi.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has mostly been bench material and should continue to be, but with all the injuries you never know when he might get an extended period of at-bats at the plate. Keep an eye on how much play he gets.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez resting vs. Mets

Fri, 24 Jul 2015 12:39:44 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Friday, July 24. OF Scott Van Slyke is filling in at first base and batting fourth against New York Mets SP Jon Niese Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Friday. He has been hot since the All-Star break with five runs, three home runs, five RBI and 1.338 OPS over seven games. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is 10-for-37 with a .946 OPS against southpaws this season, so he is worth considering as a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Friday.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier not in the lineup

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 13:47:03 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against Atlanta Braves SP Alex Wood Tuesday, July 21. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in left field and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) likely is out of the lineup because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has recorded only three hits in his last nine games and is not the best option for owners on FantasyScore.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a perfect under-the-radar FantasyScore option as a sleeper tonight against Morgan. Van Slyke has nine hits in 33 at-bats (.273) against southpaws this year with two of his four home runs.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier not in lineup Sunday

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 12:52:52 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against New York Mets SP Steven Matz Sunday, July 5. OF Scott Van Slyke will bat sixth and play left field.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has struggled of late, going 4-for-22 in his last 10 contests. However, he is batting .308 at Dodger Stadium and .273 versus lefties, so he merits some consideration in FantasyScore if you're looking for an inexpensive outfielder.

Dodgers | No Adrian Gonzalez Wednesday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 15:34:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the lineup against Arizona Diamondbacks left-handed SP Robbie Ray Wednesday, July 1. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting at first base and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) had only four hits in 18 at-bats in June as a bench option for LA, but he is hitting .300 (9-for-30) with two of his four home runs against southpaws this year. He's not a bad pick on FantasyScore tonight as a value play hitting in the heart of the Dodgers order.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out vs. southpaw

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 14:51:14 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 26. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in right field and batting fifth against Miami Marlins SP Justin Nicolino Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Either ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has just 25 plate appearances over 20 games against lefties this season, so his lineup absence shouldn't be a surprise. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is a nice upside target for FantasyScore players Friday. He has a .865 OPS against southpaws this season, and he is hitting in the heart of the order.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier sitting

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:58:38 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, against left-handed Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester. OF Scott Van Slyke is hitting cleanup in his place.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) hasn't done much this year, but 13 of his 20 homers from 2012-2014 came against lefties in nearly identical sample sizes. He's an option for a one-day flyer on FantasyScore.

Mon, 22 Jun 2015 13:35:19 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) is hitting .296 (8-for-27) with one of his three home runs against left-handers this year, and the wind is blowing out strong at Wrigley tonight. Consider Van Slyke a sneaky sleeper pick on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke returns

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 16:35:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke (back) will start in left field and hit sixth in the lineup in his return Wednesday, June 17, against the Texas Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) was hitting .286 against left-handed pitching earlier this season, and he'll have a relatively easy matchup against LHP Wandy Rodriguez to help him get back in the swing of things. Van Slyke is worth FantasyScore consideration as a GPP selection.
