Found August 27, 2013 on Feelin' Kinda Blue:
This is how Baseball America ranked the Dodgers’ Top 10 prospects from 1992-2000. There are tons of familiar names on this list because this was a large part of my formative years. Slightly off-topic, but Baseball America Executive Editor Jim Callis is leaving the publication and taking a job with MLB.com, beginning in September. Best of luck to him as he's truly one of the best in the business. 1992 1. Pedro Martinez RHP 2. Raul Mondesi OF 3. Carlos Hernandez C 4. Jamie McAndrew RHP 5. Billy Ashley OF 6. Pedro Astacio RHP 7. Eric Karros 1B 8. Henry Rodriguez OF/1B 9. Greg Hansell RHP 10. Mike Piazza C - This could be the most star-studded list with two future hall of famers in Martinez and Piazza. Karros and Mondesi were Rookies of the Year while Astacio and Rodriguez had decent careers. Ashley might have been the most powerful Dodger prospect ever. All of these guys played in the majors. 1993 1. Mi...

Corey Seager leads eight Dodgers' prospects to 2013 Arizona Fall League

The Dodgers sent eight players to the Arizona Fall League last year, including Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig. Pederson struggled mightily and Puig didn’t play due to a staph infection. This year, the Dodgers will again send eight players, led by 2012 first-round draft pick Corey Seager. Joining him -- for now -- are catchers Pratt Maynard and Chris O’Brien, as well...

Yasiel Puig speaks, and is pretty funny

Cuban phenom Yasiel Puig has been the most interesting man in MLB this season. Part of Puig’s appeal has been the mystery surrounding him. He doesn’t speak English, so all of his quotes get washed through the translation machine, and since his quotes usually generate from the pre or postgame media scrum, they’re particularly vague and generic. Enrique Rojas of ESPN Deportes...

Puig on benching: 'I wasn't preparing well for each pitch'

LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers rookie Yasiel Puig found himself back in hot water and back in the manager's office on Wednesday for what appeared to be a lack of game preparation -- or perhaps a lack of effort. There was no direct explanation, but Puig was pulled after the fourth inning of the Dodgers' 4-0 win over the Chicago Cubs. The reason, he said, was a failure to prepare...

Kemp runs bases, could start in minors Thursday

LOS ANGELES Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, whose season has been limited to 37 at-bats in the past three months, had a productive workout running the bases Tuesday and could begin a rehab assignment in the minors by Thursday. Kemp hasn't played since he sprained his left ankle sliding into home plate July 21 at Washington. He's been on the disabled list three times this...

Yasiel Puig pulled for not being ready in the field

getty images Los Angeles Dodgers Yasiel Puig was pulled from the fifth inning of Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Cubs because he “wasn’t ready on defense” for every pitch. The 22-year-old told reporters he understood manager Don Mattingly’s decision to pull him from the game. Puig said Mattingly pulled him because he wasn’t ready on defense for every pitch. Puig...

Dodgers' Matt Kemp could begin rehab assignment this week

As the Los Angeles Dodgers march toward a seemingly unchallenged path to the postseason, they will still need the services of their All-Star outfielder, Matt Kemp.  Fortunately, he is making progress with his ankle and should be returning soon.  In fact, Kemp could return to action within the next week. Matt Kemp could start a minor league rehabilitation assignment this week...

Dodgers' Kemp pases major hurdle by running bases

Matt Kemp ran the bases on Tuesday for the first time since spraining his left ankle a month ago, and the Los Angeles Dodgers slugger says he's getting closer to returning. Kemp says he felt better than he expected because he was skeptical how things would go. The next step will be running the bases again Wednesday. If things go well, manager Don Mattingly says Kemp could be...

Benching Puig tough love from Don

This was coming. And frankly, what happened Wednesday might be the best thing for Los Angeles Dodgers right fielder Yasiel Puig. Dodgers manager Don Mattingly had talked to Puig, his coaches had talked to Puig and, in recent days, a number of the team's veterans had talked to Puig. Their message still was not getting through. So, Mattingly yanked Puig at the start of the fifth...

Where Is The Playoff Push In The NL?

With a little over a month to play, there are no questions as to who will be in the playoffs in the National League. The five teams are more or less set, with three teams battling for a division and the two wild card spots. The Dodgers have a 9.5 game lead. The Braves have a 13 game lead over the Nationals. And then there is the NL Central, where the Pirates, Cardinals and Reds are...

Kershaw leaves unscathed in off night vs. Cubs

LOS ANGELES No reason to worry about Clayton Kershaw. He's fine. The collective gasp that took place at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night turned out to be a false alarm. Kershaw was hit above his left ankle by a line drive and went down for a moment, but he's OK. The Dodgers' offense is not. On a night when Kershaw didn't have his best stuff, the Dodgers were beaten...

Greinke dominant in Dodgers win

Zack Greinke came within one strike of his fifth career shutout, Hanley Ramirez and Yasiel Puig homered, and the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Chicago Cubs 6-0 Monday night, ending a two-game skid. The Cubs lost for the eighth straight time to the Dodgers, including a four-game sweep at Wrigley Field earlier this month. The Dodgers equaled their longest winning streak against...

Wood, Cubs hold on for 3-2 win over Kershaw, Dodgers

Manager Dale Sveum didn't waste words when asked about the Chicago Cubs' plan of attack against Los Angeles Dodgers formidable left-hander Clayton Kershaw. “You got to be aggressive" Sveum said. "He’s going to be aggressive to you. You got to be aggressive to him. He doesn’t walk people. He doesn’t get behind. He wants to be aggressive so you got to be...
