Rays’ Jerry Sands Breaks Bat Three Times On Three Straight Swings (Video)

They just don’t make bats like they used to anymore. In the top of the eighth inning Sunday afternoon, Jerry Sands came up as a pinch hitter for the Tampa Bay Rays. With runners at first and second and the game tied 3-3 against the Houston Astros, Sands had a chance to come through in a big way. He did just that, but not before some lumber was destroyed. On a 1-0 pitch from Jerome...

Prospect Notebook: Jerry Sands Could Be a Good In-Season Addition For the Pirates

Jerry Sands has three homers in his last four games. A few weeks ago I wrote about how Jerry Sands was struggling all around, and how there were no silver linings to his game. He wasn’t hitting right-handers or left-handers. He wasn’t hitting for power. It wasn’t a home/road split, or a situation where you could point to the most recent games with hope that he was turning things...

Dodgers troll Jerry Sands by recalling him for one start

My fondness of Tony Gwynn is no secret. When the Dodgers signed him to a 2-year deal this winter, I was all in favor of it. But when the Dodgers acquired Shane Victorino from the Phillies, Gwynn's designation was inevitable. Gwynn still has value to a team. His defense in center field is elite, his speed off the bench is something that's coveted late in games and...

Dodgers designate Tony Gwynn Jr. to clear room for Jerry Sands, but did they get rid of the wrong guy?

The Dodgers announced moments ago that Jerry Sands would be getting the call from AAA and that Tony Gwynn Jr. has been designated for assignment. OFFICIAL: @dodgers today designatedTony Gwynn Jr. for assignment and recalled outfielder/first baseman Jerry Sands from AAA Albuquerque. — Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) August 6, 2012 Sands has done his part

Time for Jerry Sands to prove to the Dodgers he can still hit

Jerry Sands Last year at around this time, Jerry Sands was a Dodger for nearly a month after a blazing start at Triple-A. Fast forward one year: Sands did not make the club out of Spring Training and has obviously been surpassed by the recently recalled Scott Van Slyke. Sands came up last season, gave Dodger fans some hope, struggled, was demoted and came back in...

A Bargain-Basement Jerry Sands Bowman Sterling Rookie Autograph.

Another cheap eBay purchase, another Jerry Sands autograph. I've been fortunate enough that the two have gone hand-in-hand a number of times thus far in my time collecting Jerry's John Hancocks. Hopefully that trend will continue. My latest Sands addition was scored for just 99 cents plus shipping:So shiny! Dirty scanner not withstanding. It's a "rookie" autograph...

An On-Card Jerry Sands XFractor Rookie Autograph

Not a terribly creative title, I know. Anyhoo, Jerry Sands needs to be starting next year. With Juan Rivera's ridiculous signing, it looks as though that will not happen, as of now. Regardless, I will continue to collect Jerry's cards when I can score them at a great price, and that's exactly how this awesome XFractor Auto - #'d  159/299 - came into my possession...

Did Jerry Sands make the necessary adjustments in 2011 to succeed in 2012?

Jerry Sands entered 2011 as a top Dodgers prospect and made his major league debut on April 18th to chants of “Jerry! Jerry!”, but on June 7th, 144 plate appearances later, he played his last game in a Dodgers uniform until he was recalled as part of the expanded rosters in September. Over those 144 plate appearances that spanned from April to June, Sands was underwhelming...
