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 »

Injury Roll Call: Hanley two weeks away, Elbert ready soon, Seager hits the DL

Hanley Ramirez‘s rehab is going well, but the team isn’t keen on rushing him, so he’s still two weeks away. Hanley Ramirez tested his hamstring running in the outfield, and Mattingly said the shortstop continues to make progress, although he is still probably two weeks away from playing. As was the case the first time he came back from injury, ... 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 ...

Injury Roll Call: Hanley performs but injured again? + Ellis hoping to avoid DL, Capuano ready

Hanley Ramirez‘s rehab stint with Rancho Cucamonga has gone well, and he’s supposedly in line to return to The Show early this week. Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-3 with two RBIs in his first of two scheduled rehab starts with the Quakes, as Rancho downed the visiting Lake Elsinore Storm, 8-3, at LoanMart Field on Saturday night.

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 »

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 »

Bills had an MRI that revealed inflammation and will have further tests once the inflammation has subsided. Chad left his last start early after feeling something in the elbow on a pitch.

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 ...
