DARNELL SWEENEY RUMORS

Dodgers’ prospect Darnell Sweeney quickly becoming a ‘Guy,’ maybe

I was pretty high on Darnell Sweeney after his debut season. He was a 13th-round selection in the 2012 MLB Draft, and his .804 OPS (including .819 in the Midwest League) gave me hope that the Dodgers might have struck gold with the pick. Then, I saw him a ton last season with Rancho Cucamonga, and was thoroughly unimpressed — probably because my expectations were a touch high...

Scouting Report: Darnell Sweeney – July 2013

Darnell Sweeney’s debut was one that caught my eye. He hit the ball better in the Midwest League than he did in the Pioneer League, and was passable on defense. While the easiest comparison for Sweeney is Dee Gordon, it’s not an inappropriate one (maybe just a touch lazy). They are virtually the same player, even though Gordon was/is a better overall prospect. Despite riches...

Down On The Farm: Week Of April 22 & 29 – Van Slyke, Pederson, Rasmussen, Sweeney, Seager

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...

Dodgers' SS prospect Darnell Sweeney hits for the cycle at High-A Rancho

Los Angeles Dodgers' shortstop prospect Darnell Sweeney hit for the cycle on Tuesday night against the Inland Empire 66ers. Sweeney, 21, hit a home run in his first at-bat, a triple in his second, a single in his third and a double in his fourth. He's done this all in just six innings of work. Quakes' play-by-play man Mike Lindskog said Sweeney could have easily...

Jarret Martin dominates, but loses in best outing of Dodgers' career

Jarret Martin had one of the best performances of his Dodger career on Wednesday night, but it wasn't enough to propel the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes to victory. Martin's line was rather impressive: 6 IP, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 8 K. The Stockton Ports scored their only two runs of the night in the first inning, aided by a Darnell Sweeney error -- his 13th in 24 games. Addison...
