AJ Alexy turns 19 in style

When it comes to Dodger pitching prospects AJ Alexy doesn’t get the attention that the higher ranked pitching prospects get but if he keeps pitching like this, he might start drawing some attention to himself.

Alexy turned nineteen today and celebrated by pitching three scoreless innings and threw in an extra out as icing on his birthday cake. He’s only pitched nine innings in three starts but the work has been superb. Nine innings, one earned run, only three hits, only one walk, and twelve punchouts. Not bad for a nineteen year old in A ball.

Gavin Lux joined the Loons this week and the future shortstop was instead playing second base.  The infield is a little crowded between the Loons and Rancho with Lux/Davis/Estevez/Jackson. Lux got his first two hits of the year tonight and stole his second base. Brandon Davis stayed at shorstop and broke a mini slump with two hits. Davis had struck out in seven of his last nine at-bats.

I noticed that Will Smith stole his 5th base for Rancho tonight. He’s a catcher so I was curious if he was leading the league with his five steals. The answer is no, but he is tied for second with three other players. Smith has been on fire with a little six game hitting streak and has his OBP knocking on .400.

    But extemporizing, music


  4. You might have meant the Yankee / Dodgers in 63 or Twins / Dodgers in 65. Come one Jim, don’t make me make you draw a clock to see if you are OK
