Scott Van Slyke went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Rockies.

Van Slyke was called up on Wednesday to help the Dodgers with their roster flexibility following Andrew Toles' tearing his ACL. His return to the big-league club paid immediate dividends (albeit in a losing effort), swatting a pinch-hit solo home run off Jeff Hoffman with one out in the fifth inning. Thursday's result aside, Van Slyke does not blip on the fantasy radar, having hit a mere .225/.292/.314 in 52 games with the Dodgers last season.
May 12 - 12:15 AM

Dodgers recalled OF Scott Van Slyke from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Van Slyke is expected to help fill in at first base for Andrew Toles, who will be undergoing season-ending surgery to repair a torn ACL. The outfielder was initially shuttled down to Triple-A on May 2 due to a rough 4-for-31 start to the season. He hit just .225/.292/.314 in 52 games last season and offers little in the way of fantasy intrigue.
May 10 - 8:15 PM

Dodgers optioned OF Scott Van Slyke to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Van Slyke was off to a 4-for-31 (.129) start this season, after batting .225/.292/.314 in 52 games last season. He's making $1.325 million in his second year of salary arbitration.
May 2 - 5:38 PM

Scott Van Slyke is fully recovered from wrist surgery.

He underwent surgery to repair a torn ligament in late August. Unless the Dodgers move one of their outfielders, playing time could be hard to come by for Van Slyke this year. He hit just .225 with one homer over 102 at-bats in 2016.
Jan 28 - 4:57 PM

Dodgers and OF Scott Van Slyke avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.325 million contract.

Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reported the contract terms. Van Slyke earned $1.225 million in 2016 while being limited to just 52 games due to back and wrist injuries. The 30-year-old required season-ending surgery on his right wrist in August. He was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter.

Dodgers activated OF Scott Van Slyke from the 60-day disabled list.

Van Slyke is now back on the 40-man roster. The 30-year-old was limited to 52 games in 2016 due to back and wrist injuries. He underwent season-ending wrist surgery in August.

Scott Van Slyke is set to undergo season-ending surgery on his right wrist.

He sustained the injury in May and there had been hope that he could rehab and return before the end of the season, but they'll opt for surgery instead. He should be fully recovered and ready to go for spring training.
Sat, Aug 27, 2016 02:22:00 PM

Dodgers transferred OF Scott Van Slyke to the 60-day disabled list.

That opens up a spot for Shawn Zarraga on the 40-man roster. With less than two months to go, this move effectively ends Van Slyke's season. He was hitting .225 before a right wrist injury sent him to the disabled list in early May.
Thu, Aug 25, 2016 10:36:00 PM

Dodgers placed OF Scott Van Slyke on the 15-day disabled list with right wrist irritation.

Chris Taylor was called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding 25-man roster move. Van Slyke will aim to return when first eligible in 15 days.

Scott Van Slyke went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in Wednesday's win over the Diamondbacks.

In a rarity, the Dodgers were actually trailing with Clayton Kershaw on the mound entering the sixth inning. Granted, they were only down 1-0, but still, trailing. Van Slyke changed all of that with his three-run dinger off Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin. An early-April back injury forced the outfielder to miss almost two months of the season before he was activated from the disabled list at the beginning of June. He failed to pick up a hit in any of his first six games back, but has now hit safely in three straight games, smacking two doubles and a homer in that space.

Dodgers activated OF Scott Van Slyke from the 15-day disabled list.

Van Slyke had been sidelined since early in the season due to a lower back injury. Prior to landing on the shelf, he was hitting just .111/.200/.222 with two RBI in nine at-bats. With Yasiel Puig heading to the disabled list, Van Slyke should find himself in the lineup against most left-handed starters.

Scott Van Slyke (back) will be activated from the disabled list on either Saturday or Sunday.

He's with the club on Friday, but has yet to be activated. The team is waiting to determine the status of Yasiel Puig and Howie Kendrick before making a decision on the accompanying roster move to Van Slyke's activation. He'll return to a .111/.200/.222 line with no homers and two RBI in his first nine at-bats before he landed on the disabled list.
Fri, Jun 3, 2016 07:11:00 PM

Scott Van Slyke (back) had a single and a walk in seven innings Sunday in his rehab debut with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Van Slyke has been on the disabled list since early April with a lower back injury and is expected to spend this entire week playing in minor league games as he works toward regaining his timing at the plate. There is a big crowd right now in the Los Angeles outfield, so Van Slyke probably isn't going to offer much fantasy upside when he does return.
Mon, May 23, 2016 09:02:00 AM

Scott Van Slyke (back) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Rancho Cucamonga on Sunday.

Lower back irritation has kept him out since early April. Van Slyke won't need much time in Rancho and should be back with the Dodgers next weekend. Van Slyke might have a hard time getting at-bats when he returns. The Dodgers already have six outfielders on their 25-man roster.
