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...

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...

There Are 5 Of These Jerry Sands Obak Autos In The World. I Own 1 Of Them.

Every now and then I'll scour eBay listings in search of cheap and new Jerry Sands autographs. Sands quickly became one of my favorite Dodgers, perhaps because he's one of the only legitimate offensive prospects, and can alleviate the pain I've felt and will feel - and the soon-to-come inevitable yearnings to blind myself - if I have to watch a single game with James...

A Bargain-Basement Jerry Sands Bowman Sterling 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...
