Van Slyke has not yet been outrighted in his career, so if he clears waivers he could be headed for a repeat performance in Triple-A. Players can be outrighted to the minors once in their career without their consent.
Van Slyke hit .167/.196/.315 (9-for-54) in two stints with the Dodgers. His season highlight came on May 20, with a three-run, pinch-hit home run in the seventh inning to lift the Dodgers over the Cardinals 6-5.
He hit .327/.404/.578 with 18 home runs and 34 doubles in 95 games with Triple-A Albuquerque in 2012, and But despite his strong season in Triple-A, Van Slyke was passed over for a September call-up after rosters expanded. Which makes this move not terribly surprising.
Van Slyke won the Branch Rickey Award as the Dodgers minor league player of the year in 2011.
