Scott Van Slyke is being called up by the Dodgers with Juan Rivera going on the DL.
Dodgers recalled OF-1B Scott Van Slyke from Triple-A Albuquerque.
The son of former outfielder Andy Van Slyke, Scott was hitting .336 with eight homers and 25 RBI at Albuquerque. He should see some time in left field with Juan Rivera out, and he could also occasionally spell James Loney at first base against left-handers.
this is what he was doing in AAA.
.336/.411/.623/1.034/ 8 HR/ 20 R/ 25 RBI/
(he's not in yahoo)
Those are PCL stats. Grain o salt! He's not going to see too much PT.
I might have missed it, but wasn't Rivera getting regular playing time?
shouldn't Van Slyke get that playing time? or does Abrue get increased playing time? if they're going to just play Abrue, why bring up Van Slyke?
I have no idea where Van Slyke ranks for prospects.
as for PCL. sure it inflates numbers. there's a player right now the majors with 8 HR who last year in the PCL had 38 HR. Bryan LaHair. Van Slyke still has power.
11- 22 HR in AA.
10- played in A/AA/AAA, not sure what was going on.
09- 23 HR in A+
