Dodger prospects could be surprisingly active come Thursday’s Rule 5 Draft, as there are two prospects drawing significant interest and two who might be plucked. —– Ben Badler of Baseball America has tweeted on more than one occasion in the last week that Jose Dominguez is seen as a potential Rule 5 draftee. Additionally, John Manuel wrote about him on ... Read More »

Down On The Farm: Winter Leagues – Puig, Erickson, Pederson, Santiago, Castellanos

YasielPuigDodgers

The Arizona Fall League wrapped up this week with the Mesa Solar Sox — the team with eight Dodger prospects — finishing in last place with a 10-20 record. Now, it wasn’t all the Dodger prospects fault, but there were some, shall we say, not-so-great performances from some of the fellas. I’m going to keep my eye on the Puerto ... Read More »

Albuquerque Isotopes Face A Crowded Outfield Situation In 2013

YasielPuigDodgers

The Dodgers are facing an interesting situation heading into the 2013 season — at least, the Albuquerque Isotopes and Chattanooga Lookouts are. Following a Twitter exchange with Chris Jackson (@TopesWriter) and Evan Chavez (@newmexicofan), it occurred to me: The Isotopes and Lookouts are going to have some awfully crowded outfields — especially the ‘Topes. The following outfielders are, at this ... Read More »

Down On The Farm: Winter Leagues – Onelki, Pederson, Ynoa, Reed, Santiago

JocPedersonHitting

Chris Jackson of the Albuquerque Examiner tweeted to me and said that Dodgers left-hander Onelki Garcia hasn’t appeared yet in the Arizona Fall League because of an oblique injury, but he was unable to confirm it. If true, I wouldn’t expect to see Garcia play at all in the AFL, though he could still pitch in another winter league. —– ... Read More »

Down On The Farm: Arizona Fall League – Pederson & Reed Struggle, Ynoa & Patterson Thrive

ArizonaFallLeague2012

The Dodgers sent eight players to the Arizona Fall League this season to play for the Mesa Solar Sox. Only Onelki Garcia has yet to appear in a game. I’m hoping he gets in soon because he only threw in two minor-league games this season. We all know about Yasiel Puig suffering the staph infection, which caused him to miss ... Read More »

ZachLee

It was a decidedly mediocre week for the Dodgers minor-league system with some standout performances. The Isotopes, Lookouts, and Arizona League Dodgers are on the verge of making the playoffs, while the Quakes are trying to nail down the wild card spot in the California League. The Raptors scored the most runs this week with 69, and the Lookouts pitching, ... Read More »

CoreySeager

The Arizona League Dodgers were the big winners this week by going 6-1. They also scored the most runs this week at 50. The Lookouts continued to struggle offensively. Their pitching has been good (24 runs allowed in seven games), but the hitting has nearly disappeared. The Dominican Summer League Dodgers actually allowed the fewest runs at 23. Joc Pederson ...

YasielPuig

Man, I’m never going two weeks between these posts again. Anyway, most of the Dodger minor-league affiliates were mediocre the last two weeks. The Ogden Raptors scored the most runs this week with 83, thanks to Jeremy Rathjen,¬†Corey Seager and Eric Smith. They also gave up the most runs this week at 94. —– Albuquerque Isotopes (7-8) Runs Scored: 81 ... Read More »

The ‘Topes scored the most runs this week with 54, while the Great Lakes Loons gave up the fewest with 24. The Arizona League Dodgers, a team that had been rolling, had one game in which it gave ...

It was a down week for some of the Dodgers minor league affiliates. The Chattanooga Lookouts and Rancho Cucamonga Quakes both had 2-4 weeks. The Great Lakes Loons checked in with the best record at 5-1. The Albuquerque Isotopes had an abbreviated week due to the Pacific Coast League All-Star Game. The Loons and Ogden Raptors scored the most runs ... Read More »

With the Dodgers signing all of the players they drafted in the first 10 rounds, the minor league rosters have received ample reinforcements. The latest to sign: Paco Rodriguez. He was assigned to the Great Lakes Loons. As for on-field performance, the Arizona League Dodgers are on fire. The team is 13-2 on the season and ahead of the second-place ... Read More »

Scott Schebler’s Hitting Routine Leads To Success, But Plate Discipline Will Determine Future

ScottSchebler

As I get ready to publish my midseason Dodgers prospect rankings on my blog, I’ve noticed Scott Schebler has been playing a lot better for the Great Lakes Loons than he was to begin the season. The toolsy outfielder, coming off a decent showing with the Ogden Raptors in 2011, started 2012 off on shaky ground: .221/.250/.400. He was better ... Read More »
