Van Slyke went 1-for-3 with a home run and a strikeout to boost the Dodgers to a 4-2 victory over the Rockies on Wednesday.

Grabbing a start against left-hander Tyler Anderson, Van Slyke bashed a 2-2 offering into straight-away center field for his first homer of the season. Despite the big blast, the 30-year-old really only has appeal a streaming option in mixed leagues when the Dodgers face a southpaw, and even then, his .150 batting average on the season doesn't instill much confidence in anyone willing to take a chance on him.
