Cool prospect links and notes

DJ Peters on being the home town kid.

Alex Verdugo and his parents.

“He would be so mad if he knew I told you this, but every night in the month when he shuts down right after the season, all I see in his bed are Reese’s peanut butter cups and hot Cheetos. I mean, it’s awful,” Shelly said with a laugh. “He goes to sleep with the hot Cheetos. I ask him if he brushed his teeth. And he’s like, ‘Yeah, sure.’ I’m like, ‘No you didn’t.’ He’s bad during that first month in the off-season.

Brendon Davis got promoted to Rancho. The 2nd/SS/3rd will get out of the way of Gavin Lux. Even though Davis and Lux are the same age, Davis clearly outhit Lux while with the Loons but the 2016 number one pick Lux continues to rank much higher than Davis on the prospect charts. Takes a while before that number one pick luster loses its shine.

2017 number one pick Jeren Kendall has already been promoted to the Loons. Good to see the Dodgers being aggressive with Jeren, he certainly was too good for the Pioneer League. I expect his teammate Starling Heredia to join him shortly.

    Caught up on your writing the last 2 days. Great stuff as usual. Saw the Pirates at Coors Saturday night. That was fun. Adam Ottavio bobblehead night as well as Star Wars night. The freaks were out in force.
