Dodger Minor League Update – 04/08/19

AAA – OKC Josh Sborz is thriving in a bullpen role for AAA, as he has struck out nine of the twelve hitters he’s faced so far with only one hit and one walk. The Dodgers made no noise when they signed veteran major league pitcher Zach McAllister to a minor league contract but he …

2019 Dodger Spring Training Stats – The Hitters

The 2019 spring training games are over so for fun, let’s take a look at the spring training stats. Dodgers did just about zero running this spring.  No one stole more than one base and when you look at the lineup you don’t see anyone who should have a green light unless it is Pollock. …

Every player is replaceable

Players come, players go, the constant is the game, not the players. Agents don’t want to hear this, fans don’t want to hear this, …

Omar Estevez getting it together

20-year old infielder Omar Estevez is playing his second season for Rancho in Class A+ ball after having an underwhelming season in 2017.  Given his age, I was surprised that he dropped so far in the prospect ranking this spring as he was much younger than the age group for his level.

Estevez got no love from anybody when prospect lists were announced but he played a solid 2nd/SS and picked up four hits …
