Today I continue my off-season recap of the Los Angeles Dodgers minor league affiliates, moving on to the pitchers of the Albuquerque Isotopes.

I’ll be picking the prospects for the 2012 Prospective Prospect Profiles list from these reviews, so it might be worth reading. Or not.


Travis Schlichting – RHP – 26

Travis Schlichting Statistics

Yes, that’s right boys and girls, there’s one goddamn pitching prospect at AAA for the Dodgers and he had a 7.21 ERA and 5.43 FIP in 2011!

Aren’t you excited? Hell yeah, my nipples are hard.

Anyway, in all seriousness, it wasn’t that bad because the league average was a 5.11 ERA and a 4.50 FIP. That said, he posted about a league average strikeout and walk rate, so there’s nothing to get too excited about here.

His fastball is in the 91-94 range and he has a solid slider, but the thing that has held him back in the past is his command. He doesn’t have a knockout pitch either, but the Dodgers could do worse at organizational relief depth.
