Scott Van Slyke spent 7 plus years in the Minor Leagues

Pix: AP

I'm really happy for Scott Van Slyke. He made his MLB debut last night and got his first hit.

Drafted by the Dodgers in the 14th round of the 2005 MLB June Amateur Draft.

He spent 7 years in the minor leagues! 8 years if you want to count his short stint in Albuquerque this season. He will turn 26 this July. This is not a young rookie.

I'm hoping he can stay in L.A. and show that power.

Oh hey, maybe you will recognize him now. {linked here}
