The Los Angeles Dodgers recalled outfielder/first baseman Scott Van Slyke from Triple-A Albuquerque.

To make room for Van Slyke on their roster, the Dodgers optioned infielder Ivan De Jesus to Triple-A.

Van Slyke was inserted into the Dodgers’ starting lineup immediately last night, manning right field for the injured Andre Ethier. The 25-year-old went 0-4 with two strikeouts while batting fifth for LA.

Van Slyke made his major league debut earlier this season with the Dodgers, spending a little over a month with the club before being sent back to Triple-A to make room for Juan Rivera. Over his 18 games with the Dodgers, spanning 35 at-bats, Van Slyke has hit at a clip of .171/.194/.314.

The son of former major leaguer Andy Van Slyke, Scott has spent most of the season with the Dodgers Triple-A affiliate. Over his 184 at-bats, he’s maintained a line of .326/.404/.576 with 25 extra-base hits and 36 RBIs.

Another son of a former big leaguer, Ivan De Jesus had spent 23 games with the Dodgers before his demotion. Over his 33 at-bats, the 25-year-old hit at a clip of .273/.324/.364.
