Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke will get a start in left field on Saturday.
Insight: Given Andre Ethier's .125 batting average versus Madison Bumgarner this is no surprise. Van Slyke offers power to fantasy owners. He he seven last year in 129 at-bats with an .807 OPS.

Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke got the start in left field with Carl Crawford not in Australia and made the most of it with a double and a homer in the team's season opener.
Insight: Van Slyke posted seven homers and a .807 OPS in 129 at-bats last season, but as the fifth outfielder on the team, barring injury, doesn't appear to have a way to get enough at-bats for fantasy owners to roster him.

Description: Los Angeles outfielder Scott Van Slyke will get the start in left field with Carl Crawford sidelined.
Insight: Van Slyke may only be a starter for one game as Matt Kemp is expected back on Sunday. He is batting .247 with six homers and an .838 OPS in 85 at-bats this season.

Description: Los Angeles outfielder and occasional first baseman Scott Van Slyke has returned from the disabled list.
Insight: He missed about two weeks with a shoulder ailment. With Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier in the outfield and Adrian Gonzalez at first base, there won't be a whole lot of opportunities for Van Slyke (.221, 6 HR, 11 RBI) to contribute. Fantasy owners can ignore him for now.

Description: Dodgers OF/1B Scott Van Slyke left Sunday's game with a leg injury and is questionable for Monday's game against Milwaukee.
Insight: Van Slyke is batting .267 with three home runs since being called up a week ago. He's been a solid .300 hitter in the minors (.397 at Albuquerque this season) and with the Dodgers looking for an offensive spark he's gotten a chance to show his talents this week.

Description: Dodgers minor league 1B/OF Scott Van Slyke continues to pound Pacific Coast League pitching, batting .400 with nine home runs, 28 RBI and a 1.249 OPS through 32 games.
Insight: Van Slyke batted .348 in 2011 and .327 last season at Albuquerque before struggling in a short stint with the Dodgers where he hit .167 in 54 at-bats. Considering the Dodgers are 28th of 30 teams in runs per game (3.41) and 27th in home runs (23) eventually they are going to have to find a spot for him.

Description: Dodgers minor outfielder Scott Van Slyke has set a torrid early pace, even for Pacific Coast League hitting, batting .571 with four home runs and 14 RBI through his first eight games.
Insight: Van Slyke batted .348 in 2011 and .327 last season at Albuquerque before struggling in a short stint with the Dodgers where he hit .167 in 54 at-bats. If he keeps hitting like this, the Dodgers are eventually going to have to give him another shot.

Description: Dodgers outfielder Scott Van Slyke earned his first MLB start on Tuesday night after crushing Pacific Coast League pitching for the first month of the season. He played right field and batted fifth, but went 0-for-4.
Insight: Van Slyke was batting .336 with 8 HR, 25 RBI and a 1.034 OPS for the Albuquerque Isotopes. Unless he falls flat on his face he could get quite a few starts with Matt Kemp on the DL.
