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 ...

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, ...

Around The Web: Kemp’s start, draft bonus increase, minor league rosters, Tomohiro Anraku

Never forget. —– Baseball Prospectus: Matt Kemp has struggled to start the year, but his poor Spring Training probably has little to do with it. His career line in 561 plate appearances? .252/.291/.448/.739. True Blue LA: The Opening Day payroll for the Dodgers is over $240 million. Baseball America: Draft bonus pools for the 2013 MLB Draft will rise 8.2 ... 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 »

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 »
