Our latest installment covers the last two weeks or so of Winter League action, including perhaps reason to worry about Alexander Guerrero‘s readiness.
The lack of updates goes hand-in-hand with the lack of relevant prospects still playing.

Alexander Guerrero – 2B
Guerrero has reached safely in just six of his last 22 plate appearances with a pair...
Most Dodger fans are expecting Juan Uribe to return on a 1- or 2-year deal. As the best free agent third baseman available, Uribe has every right to test the market (he'd be foolish not to).But the Dodgers can't wait around forever. It seems Uribe is holding up the Dodgers' offseason moves to some degree -- something that seems highly unlikely just a year ago. The White...
The Arizona Fall League and Australian Baseball League have wrapped up, while Alexander Guerrero has still not returned from his thigh/hamstring injury. He is close to returning, but time is running out.
Winter is coming … to an end.

Gordon’s time in the DWL has come to an end, as he last played a week ago and has returned stateside...
In 2012, four left-handed pitchers touched 93-plus on my radar gun. In Onelki Garcia and Chris Reed, Dodgers prospects accounted for half the list. This is nothing new. Two minor league baseball seasons living in the Atlanta area has yielded many hard-throwing Dodgers prospects. What’s new is every top prospect I’ve seen from the Dodgers has been right-handed before this.
Chris Reed isn’t your typical top-rated prospect. Born in London, England, he has a record of just 1-9 since the Los Angeles Dodgers drafted him 16th overall in 2011. A closer in his junior year at Stanford, the 22-year-old southpaw transitioned to a starting role this season with High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga. Limited to 77 innings, Reed proceeded to make 11...
I had the opportunity to speak with Chris Reed before his Nov. 8 Arizona Fall League game.
Edited for sanity, because nobody wants to read “uh” and “um” and laughs and transitions and crap.
Pitching in the AFL is always difficult, so are you making any conscious adjustments to that or is it just specifically working on things beyond results?
“Yeah, we’re working...
Playing for the World Team in the 2012 Futures Game (because he was born in England), the Dodgers lone representative, Chris Reed, got rocked a bit in his one inning of work. He gave up two hits, a walk, four runs (two earned), and struck out one. It’s indicative of exactly nothing, but it would
The 2012 Futures Game rosters were announced today and London-born (say wha?) Chris Reed will represent the Dodgers in Kansas City this year.
It's no surprise to see Reed headed to KC, as he's had a really good season so far: 2.86 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and a 9.2 K/9 between High-A Rancho Cucamonga and Double-A Chattanooga.
Reed, 22, has a good fastball that sits in the...
