Scott Van Slyke, still recovering from flu, is the Dodgers’ designated hitter in Oakland.

OAKLAND — Carl Crawfored is playing left field, and Scott Van Slyke is the Dodgers’ designated hitter, because Van Slyke is still recovering from a bout with the flu over the weekend.

“With Scotty, him being sick last week, extra innings last night, early game today, it was pretty easy to go Scotty DHing today,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “Scotty’s a really good defender, one of our better outfield defenders … but today it’s a matter of him being a little bit down the last few days. I could see him here last night looking like he was beat.”

Van Slyke is over the flu, Mattingly said.

“It’s just how you would feel if you had the flu for 2 or 3 days, coming back,” he said. “You feel a little winded.”
