Dodgers | Andre Ethier out again

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 12:02:07 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the lineup for the second straight day against a left-handed pitcher Wednesday, Aug. 26. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and hitting fifth against Cincinnati Reds SP David Holmberg.

Fantasy Tip: Holmberg presents FantasyScore users with a nice chance to stack Dodgers hitters tonight. However, Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) hasn't really taken advantage of his opportunities at facing southpaws this year, hitting only .230 (14-for-61) with two of his four home runs against them. He'll remain a rather mediocre daily selection.

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 13:51:47 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, Aug. 25, against the Cincinnati Reds. OF Scott Van Slyke is hitting fifth against Reds SP John Lamb.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) has the night off with Lamb, a left-handed pitcher, in the lineup. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has little fantasy value.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier out against LHP

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 14:18:53 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out of the lineup Saturday, Aug. 22, with OF Scott Van Slyke hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) has hit lefties very hard in the past, but he has been a mixed bag this year. He's a cheap flyer against Scott Kazmir on FantasyScore if you want to roll the dice.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke in as DH

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 10:45:06 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke is serving as the designated hitter and batting seventh against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Wednesday, Aug. 19.

Fantasy Tip: Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) hasn't done much since the All-Star break, hitting .235 (8-for-34) in limited time with no home runs and three RBI. He has a solid matchup against the struggling Chavez, but you likely can find better outfield plays on FantasyScore.

Dodgers | Scott Van Slyke draws into lineup

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 15:05:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Scott Van Slyke is starting in left field and hitting fifth against Cincinnati Reds SP John Lamb Friday, Aug. 14. OF Andre Ethier is sitting out against the left-handed hurler.

Fantasy Tip: Starting any player against a pitcher making his major league debut in daily formats isn't a bad plan. The same should hold true for Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap), especially if you're looking to save money on the rest of your roster. Van Slyke is also batting .280 (14-for-50) with an .899 OPS and two home runs against lefties in 2015.

Dodgers | Adrian Gonzalez sitting vs. lefty

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 15:46:17 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez is not in the starting lineup Monday, Aug. 10. OF Scott Van Slyke is starting at first base and batting third against Washington Nationals SP Gio Gonzalez Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Gonzalez ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Monday. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) owns a career .275/.384/.525 slash line against lefties and a .968 OPS against southpaws this season. He is an excellent FantasyScore target Monday.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier not in lineup Saturday

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 10:08:05 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Saturday, Aug. 8. OF Scott Van Slyke will play left field and bat cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is hitting 70 points lower versus lefties than righties this year, so he will give way to Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap), who is batting .295 versus southpaws and .313 since the All-Star break.

Dodgers | Andre Ethier remains out Saturday

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 09:58:33 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers OF Andre Ethier is out of the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Saturday, Aug. 1. OF Scott Van Slyke will start in left field for the second consecutive game and bat cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Ethier ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is sitting out because the Dodgers are facing their second left-handed starter in as many contests. Van Slyke ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) went 1-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Friday, and is hitting .286 versus lefties in 42 at-bats this season. He's a good value play in FantasyScore this afternoon for owners looking for an inexpensive outfielder.

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 17:15:49 -0700

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.
