Alex Verdugo has little left to prove in AAA

Alex Verdugo is tearing up AAA right now but the Dodgers are so loaded with major league outfielders there doesn’t seem to be any room for the talented outfielder. Over his last ten games, Verdugo is hitting .476. The table below is courtesy of http://www.milb.com. Over those ten games, Alex had multiple hits in seven …

Edwin Rios trying to make up for lost opportunity

By all rights, the call to Oklahoma for Max Muncy should have gone to Edwin Rios the 2016 Dodgers position prospect of the year.  The problem for Rios was that he wasn’t at Oklahoma to accept the call, instead, he was rehabbing in Arizona. Rios could only think of what could have been as Max …

Can Dodgers continue to ride the Oklahoma pitching train?

Only one Dodger is still standing at the moment from the opening day rotation, thus the Dodgers have repeatedly dipped into their AAA affiliate at Oklahoma to replenish the battered rotation. Caleb Ferguson will be following in the footsteps of Walker Buehler, Brock Stewart, and Dennis Santana. Walker Buehler, for now, looks like a permanent …

LAD debut starts in the 21st century

Dennis Santana didn’t get to make this list due to the Dodgers sleight of hand regarding who started and who relieved last week,  but from what I gather, Caleb Ferguson will actually start the game tonight so I thought we could look at all the debut starts for the Dodgers. I limited this to the …

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. …

Is Alex Verdugo breaking down the door?

It is no secret that Joc Pederson is struggling with the Dodgers. The part-time outfielder is getting plenty of playing time subbing in for Matt Kemp not long after the national anthem is finished playing but he isn’t doing much to combat the argument that he might be better off playing every day in AAA to …

Dodger catchers crushing home runs up and down the system

Starting on Saturday, the Dodger catching prospects and now the Dodger catcher have been on a home run tear mashing seven home runs in just five games. It all started innocently enough when Connor Wong hit a home run on Friday the 13th.  Connor is the starting catcher for the Rancho Cucamonga in A+ ball. …

As Dodgers regroup Walker Buehler makes his 2018 minor league debut

While the Dodgers get a travel day to figure out their offense and why they can’t win when the two best pitchers pitch, the minor league schedule opens with Walker Buehler highlighting the schedule. Buehler is the odds-on favorite to get the first call when the Dodgers need a starter. Heck if Kenley Jansen has …
