News: Van Slyke will start in left field and bat fifth Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Impact: This typically wouldn't be worth reporting, but Van Slyke is not only killing lefties this season (.272/.412/.630), he's absolutely abusing Miley, with three home runs, three doubles and two walks in just 11 plate appearances against the Diamondbacks' southpaw in 2014. This is definitely a prime opportunity to get Van Slyke in your daily league lineups.(RotoWire, )
