Scott Van Slyke
Los Angeles Dodgers
There were some eye-popping performances in the Dodgers minor-league system the last couple weeks. I got to see three of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes games in person, which was awesome.
There are some guys below folks should keep eyes on this season. They could establish themselves as legitimate prospects with solid performances in 2013.
Triple-A Albuquerque Isotopes (4-2 and 5-2)
Player Of The Week 4/22
Scott Van Slyke – 1B
.480/.536/.800/1.336, 2 HR, 6 RBI, 2 2B, 7 R, 1 SB, 3 BB, 4 K
Van Slyke is absolutely mashing the ball right now. Maybe he has a chip on his shoulder from being designated for assignment in the winter, maybe it’s his improved physique. Whatever it is, he’s doing everything right so far in Triple-A.
Player Of The Week 4/29
Tim Federowicz – C
.571/.583/1.238/1.821, 3 HR, 3 2B, 1 3B, 8 RBI, 6 R, 2 BB, 4 K
Federowicz was the Pacific Coast League player of the week and posted some ridiculous numbers. Those numbers, coupled with Ramon Hernandez’s struggles, helped F...

Hyun Jin Ryu was captured by dodgerfilms on YouTube playing catch with a boy, only known to me as “Deuce”, in the stands during batting practice.
After Matt Kemp made headlines everywhere for being a great guy, something he’s done before as well, Ryu once again brings positive headlines to the Dodgers for off-the-field reasons.
In what has been a horrible 2013 thus far for...
Dodgers fans received good news on Tuesday when the club announced Zack Greinke is expected to take the mound against the Nationals on Wednesday night.

I’m laid up here on the couch laid night trying to watch the Dodgers and Nationals game on MLB.tv, and there’s something that is causing me disturbance. What could make a man disgruntled when he is free of responsibility and The Great One is calling the game?
Then I see it. Josh Beckett is meandering and fiddle-******* his way through the second hitter of the game.
It is a good rule of thumb to never judge a book by its cover, and this is a perfect example. Focus on the slightly hefty Dodgers fan in the stands who at first glance seems like he wouldn’t be interested in risking life and limb for a foul ball. Wrong. Check out the awesome catch he makes on a sharp foul ball to the first-base side. Not too shabby! The Dodgers went on to beat...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Zack Greinke will pitch on Wednesday.
Whether he does it against the Washington Nationals at Dodger Stadium or the San Jose Giants in Rancho Cucamonga, where the Dodgers' Single-A team plays, remains to be seen.
Greinke signed a six-year, 147 million contract with the Dodgers in the offseason but has been on the disabled list since April 12, the day after...

Tell me, whom exactly would the Los Angeles Dodgers hire as an immediate replacement for Don Mattingly? Phil Jackson?
Sorry, there is no magic pill, no obvious internal or external choice to take over as Dodgers manager now, next week or even at mid-season.
Which isn't to say that Mattingly deserves greater job security. Legitimate questions persist about his game management...
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Andre Ethier had a pair of doubles among his season-high four hits, Dee Gordon hit a rare home run and the Los Angeles Dodgers snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 7-1 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

The Washington Nationals (20-17) are heading west to play through the West Coast and attempt to quell any momentum the Los Angeles Dodgers (15-21) are gaining before they can build it into a streak.
The Dodgers, who have been one of the bigger disappointments of the 2013 season, underachieving despite their high payroll, just took two games from the Miami Marlins to stop an eight...
