The Los Angeles Dodgers today reinstated outfielder/first baseman Juan Rivera from the 15-day disabled list after optioning outfielder/first baseman Scott Van Slyke to Triple-A Albuquerque following yesterday’s game at Colorado. Van Slyke, 25, batted .194 with two doubles, a home run and six RBI in 17 games with Los Angeles.

It happens. We'll see Van Slyke again soon. When you are paying a player $4M to play, you can't keep him out of the lineup any longer than you have to.
