Down On The Farm

Down On The Farm: Week Of June 10 & 17 – Buss, Stripling, Garcia, Seager, Farmer, Chigbogu, Rodriguez

There’s no Julio Urias appearance this week, but some other quality prospects made the list, including Ross Stripling. Also, the two of the Dodgers‘ short-season leagues began play last week (Pioneer League and Arizona Rookie League). —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (5-2 & 4-4) Player Of The Week – 6/10 Matt Wallach – C .409/.519/.682/1.201, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 4 R, ...

Down On The Farm: Week Of May 27 & June 3 – Moore, Reed, Dickson, Urias

All I really care about is Julio Urias, but there were a couple prospects who had solid weeks for their respective Dodgers minor-league teams. With Yasiel Puig having been promoted from Double-A, the Lookouts offense now runs through Joc Pederson. The Dominican Summer League started play this week as well, and some of the bigger international signings should log ample ... Read More »

Down On The Farm: Week Of May 20 – Matt Magill, Yasiel Puig, Jarret Martin, Julio Urias

There were some usual suspects playing well in the Dodgers farm system this week, but one player’s professional debut stood out above the rest. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (4-3) Player Of The Week Elian Herrera – 2B .429/.500/.607/1.107, 1 HR, 2 2B, 4 RBI, 7 R, 5 SB, 4 BB, 5 K Herrera, the subject of call-up rumors, had a ...

Down On The Farm: Week Of May 13 – Puig, Rasmussen, Mount, Gould, Taylor

A couple of top prospects performed well this week in the Dodgers farm system, but the teams aren’t performing that well — especially the Great Lakes Loons. The squad can’t hit, leading to a system-low 14 wins. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (3-3) Player Of The Week Rusty Ryal – 1B .421/.450/.474/.924, 1 2B, 2 RBI, 2 R, 1 BB, 3 ... Read More »

Down On The Farm: Week Of May 6 – Pederson, Stripling, Von Schamann, Sanchez

JocPedersonHitting

Pitching was the story for the Dodgers‘ farm system this week, but one positional prospect stood out and was recognized for his great offensive performance. It’s nice to see youngsters take advantage of their given opportunities. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (1-6) Player Of The Week Matt Angle – OF .333/.448/.583/1.031, 1 HR, 1 2B, 1 3B, 2 RBI, 5 R, 2 ...

Down On The Farm: Week Of April 22 & 29 – Van Slyke, Pederson, Rasmussen, Sweeney, Seager

TimFederowicz

There were some eye-popping performances in the Dodgers minor-league system the last couple weeks, and I got to see three of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes games in person, which was awesome. There are some guys below folks should keep eyes on this season, as they could establish themselves as legitimate prospects with solid performances in 2013. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes ...

Down On The Farm: Week Of April 15 – Magill, Pederson, Lee, Seager, Cotton

Pitching was the story for the Dodgers farm system this week, but one positional prospect stood out and was recognized for his great offensive performance. It’s nice to see youngsters take advantage of their given opportunities. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (2-4) Player Of The Week Alex Castellanos – OF .417/.417/.667/1.084, 2 HR, 6 RBI, 5 R, 2 SB, 0 BB, ...

Down On The Farm: Week Of April 8 – Van Slyke, Magill, Puig, Lee, Baez, Cash

Kind of a quiet week on the farm for the Dodgers affiliates. The Loons went 4-1, but the other three affiliates didn’t play .500 ball. The pitching seemed to lack this week more than the offense, but there have been some impressive early-season performances thus far. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (2-5) Player Of The Week Scott Van Slyke – 1B ...

Down On The Farm: Week Of April 1 – Puig, Onelki, Stripling, Tolleson, Van Slyke, Caughel

The Dodgers had a bunch of intriguing minor-leaguers posting solid numbers in the season’s first week. Note: Since the minor-league season started on Thursday, the numbers you see here — especially for the hitters — will not be the norm all year long. —– Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (4-0) Player Of The Week Scott Van Slyke – 1B 4 G, .600/.667/.933/1.600, ...

Down On The Farm: Winter Leagues – Dominguez, Sulbaran, Garcia, Puig, Miller

DeeGordon

The Dodgers have sent a lot of guys to play in winter ball following the conclusion of the Arizona Fall League. They are well represented in the Caribbean Winter Leagues and it’s nice to see some guys getting consistent playing time. —– Dominican Winter League Geison Aguasviva has a 7.71 ERA in 2 1/3 innings. Juan Abreu has thrown 6 2/3 ... 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 »

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 »

Down On The Farm: Week Of August 20th – Van Slyke, Lee, Campbell, Valdez, Bird

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 »
