Dodger prospect notes for May 10th
Dustin May, Dennis Santana, and Yusniel Diaz have done enough this week to already garner some notes for this Thursday.
Dustin May made his 2018 debut last week and pitched okay, but last night in his second start he showed why he just might be the highest ceiling prospect left in the Dodger minor leagues. May gave up zero earned runs in five innings of six hit ball. He walked only one, and struck out nine of the fifteen outs.
Dennis Santana struck out eleven of his eighteen outs, with zero walks, one earned run, and six hits.
Yusniel Diaz – a few days ago Yunsiel was added to the Baseball America top 100 prospects which they update periodacially during the summer as players get promoted and lose their rookie eligibility. Diaz has also been noticed in the fantasy world with this little note from Rotowire.
Yusniel Diaz, OF, LAD – ….. Diaz is hitting .340/.444/.604 through 14 games. He has eight extra-base hits over that span, including two home runs. He has also swiped four bases already. Diaz may be on the verge of a breakout year for the Dodgers, as he has collected more walks (10) than strikeouts (9) through the early part of his season. With double-digit potential in home runs and steals, along with a year more of an adjustment to baseball in the United States, Diaz is worth keeping on the prospect radar.
