Additionally, the Dodgers have placed pitcher Chris Hatcher on the DL with a left oblique strain.
According to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, Hatcher said he felt a “twinge” in his oblique on Sunday and received an MRI on Wednesday.
Van Slyke last played on May 30 before going on the DL with mid-back inflammation. He completed a rehab assignment before being activated by Los Angeles.
The 28-year-old is hitting .264 with two home runs and 14 RBIs in 34 games this season.
Hatcher is 1–4 with a 6.38 ERA and a 1.582 WHIP in 27 relief appearances.
The Dodgers (37–28) host the Texas Rangers on Wednesday.
