Dodgers' Alex Guerrero gets start in left field Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/26/2015) After hitting a big pinch-hit home run on Monday, Alex Guerrero is in the Dodgers' lineup on Tuesday against the Braves. Guerrero is in left field and batting seventh on Tuesday.

Guerrero will get the start over Scott Van Slyke who had started three of the last four games in left field. 


Dodgers RF Andre Ethier not in starting lineup on Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) With the Dodgers facing a tough left-hander, right fielder Andre Ethier will be held out of the starting lineup on Thursday against the Giants. Ethier is in the midst of a hot streak, batting .375 with a home run and four RBI over his last eight games.

But, he's just 3 for 24 lifetime against Giants' starter Madison Bumgarner, so Ethier will take a seat for the series-finale. Scott Van Slyke will handle right field and bat sixth for manager Don Mattingly.


Dodgers' Andre Ethier, Yasmani Grandal not in lineup on Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/16/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is resting a number of regulars on Saturday against the Rockies. Included in that group is right fielder Andre Ethier and catcher Yasmani Grandal.

Ethier has started 17 of the last 19 games in right field for the Dodgers, and he's been hot at the plate lately. Over his last 10 games, Ethier is hitting .343 with a home run and five RBI. Scott Van Slyke is making the start in right field on Saturday.

Grandal meanwhile has started five straight games behind the plate, so Mattingly will give his legs a rest. A.J. Ellis will catch Zack Greinke against the Rockies. 

"A.J. hasn't been playing a whole lot lately," Mattingly said to MLB.com. "I'm trying to get him in there against left-handers as much as I can. I never worry about A.J. as a [good] teammate. I just want to make sure he doesn't feel slighted. He'll be a bigger part of the mix in the next section of games, when we have day after night, and travel."


Dodgers' Juan Urbe in lineup Thursday vs. Rockies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Rockies.

Uribe will be making his first start since facing the Rockies in Colorado Friday. He has hit .257/.293/.329 with one home run and six RBI in 70 at-bats.

With Uribe and left fielder Scott Van Slyke in the lineup, Alex Guerrero is coming off the bench Thursday.

The Dodgers are heavy favorites (-210) at home Thursday, per VegasInsider.com.


Dodgers' Scott Van Slyke hits walk-off home run Monday


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(5/12/2015) Dodgers left fielder Scott Van Slyke hit a three-run home run off Marlins closer Steve Cishek to propel the Dodgers to a 5-3 win over the Marlins on Monday.

With the Dodgers trailing by one with one out and two runners on, Van Slyke blasted his second home run of season to give the Dodgers the win.

"I was looking hard, up," Van Slyke said to MLB.com. "Luckily he threw me a slider for a ball on the first pitch. I got a good look at it, and then he threw the next one over the plate."

Van Slyke finished the game 3 for 4 at the plate with three RBI and two runs scored. Prior to his three-hit game Monday, Van Slyke was 2 for 15 in his last six games.


Dodgers' Scott Van Slyke starting in left field Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/6/2015) Dodgers left fielder Scott Van Slyke is in the starting lineup Wednesday, batting seventh in his team's matchup against the Brewers in Milwaukee.

Van Slyke and Alexander Guerrero have alternated starts in left field over the previous six games, and Van Slyke will rejoin the lineup after Guerrero went 0 for 3 Tuesday. Wednesday's starter is 13 for 39 with one home run and nine RBI.

The Dodgers are road favorites (-120) Wednesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Dodgers' Justin Turner, Alex Guerrero starting Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2015) Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner and left fielder Alex Guerrero are in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

Turner is batting fifth while drawing his first start in three games. Juan Uribe will head to the bench with Turner in the lineup.

Guerrero is batting eight and manning left field for the third time since Carl Crawford was placed on the disabled list. His presence in the lineup sends Scott Van Slyke to the bench.

The Dodgers are heavy road favorites (-165) Tuesday.


Scott Van Slyke gets start over Alex Guerrero for Dodgers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2015) The Dodgers continued alternating left fielders. 

Since Carl Crawford went on the disabled list, Alex Guerrero has gotten three starts in left field and Scott Van Slyke, two. The two players have alternated days starting. 

Guerrero got the call on Sunday, so Van Slyke is listed as the Dodgers' left fielder in Monday's lineup. He'll hit fifth in the lineup. 

Guerrero is 0 for 9 in his three starts. Van Slyke is 2 for 8 in his two. 


Scott Van Slyke doubles twice, homers, three RBI in Dodgers' victory


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/19/2015) Dodgers left fielder Scott Van Slyke went 3 for 4 with a two-run homer, two doubles and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Rockies.

The homer was Van Slyke's first of the season.

"Van Slyke's a tough out. And if you give him an extra chance, more times than not it ends up hurting you," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said.

Dodgers' Puig, Crawford, Grandal, Uribe out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig, left fielder Carl Crawford, catcher Yasmani Grandal and third baseman Juan Uribe are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Rockies.

Puig was able to return from a tight hamstring Saturday and go 2 for 3 with a walk, but manager Don Mattingly said that the outfielder had a noticeable limp while playing nine innings. Crawford is out of the lineup for the second straight day due to illness. Uribe and Grandal are sitting for the first time in four games.

With several starters sidelined, Justin Turner will bat second and play third base, Andre Ethier will bat fifth and start in right field, Scott Van Slyke will start in left field and bat sixth and A.J. Ellis will start behind the plate and bat eighth against Rockies right-hander Eddie Butler.

Despite the multiple absences, the Dodgers are heavy favorites (-165) Sunday.

The Dodgers are also keeping shortstop Jimmy Rollins, catcher Yasmani Grandal and left fielder Carl Crawford out of the starting lineup Monday. Darwin Barney will play shortstop and bat leadoff, Scott Van Slyke will man left field and bat fifth and A.J. Ellis will be behind the plate and bat eighth.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) Dodgers manager Don Mattingly stopped short Monday of calling rookie Joc Pederson the team's starting center fielder, but he added, "You're going to see Joc a lot in center field."

"We really like the way Joc goes about his business," Mattingly said, per MLB.com. 

Mattingly added Scott Van Slyke and Andre Ethier are likely going to start in center field the days Pederson is off, per the Los Angeles Times

Mattingly said he spoke with Ethier over the weekend about his reserve role. Ethier was hoping to be a starter -- either with the Dodgers or another team.

"Any step can change his whole situation," Mattingly said. "If one guy takes a bad step, turns an ankle, Andre's playing every day."

Scott Van Slyke steals spotlight in season opener


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/22/2014) If there is an afterthought wearing a Dodgers uniform, it's Scott Van Slyke. Such is the destiny for a player sharing an outfield with illuminaries Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Yasiel Puig and Carl Crawford.

But the son of former Cardinals slugger Andy Van Slyke took a back seat to no other hitter Saturday when his team met Arizona in the regular season opener at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia. Van Slyke provided the difference in the game with a two-run homer in the fourth inning to stake his team to a 3-0 lead. The Dodgers went on to win, 3-1.

Van Slyke, who nearly cleared the fence with a double in his first at-bat that led to the other run, earned praise after the game from Don Mattingly.

"He's always been an RBI guy," Mattingly said. "He's a good defender. He's really a pretty solid player."

Van Slyke got on base in three of four plate appearances. He walked in the eighth.
