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.

Alexander Guerrero made his Winter League debut in the Dominican Winter League.
Arizona Fall League
Corey Seager – SS
Corey played in just two games this past week but did hit an eight-inning, game-tying grand slam in the first of those two contests (a game the Glendale Desert Dogs would win in the ninth inning).
Brian Cavazos-Galvez and Chris O’Brien posted OBPs of .417...
To say Joc Pederson is tearing up the Venezuelan Winter League would be an understatement.
While his .286 batting average is solid, his on-base percentage and slugging percentage are what's most impressive thus far.
Through 12 games, Pederson has a .545 (!) on-base percentage and .686 slugging percentage. That comes from a ridiculous 20:11 walk-to-strikeout ratio...
Five Dodgers minor-league players were voted as All-Stars for their respective leagues, according to a poll conducted by Baseball America. The main prospects on the list were one of the system’s top prospects in Joc Pederson and one of the system’s up-and-coming prospects in Jacob Scavuzzo.
In AAA, Nick Buss of the Albuquerque Isotopes made the outfield for the Pacific...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have officially promoted the $42 million man calling up top prospect Yasiel Puig. The native of Cuba has been tearing it up in Double A with the Chattanooga Lookouts hitting at a .313 clip with 8 home runs and 13 stolen bases in 40 contests before the promotion. The much heralded 22-year old will make his major league debut on Monday as the Dodgers are set...
Joc Pederson has been one of my favorite prospects ever since the Dodgers were able to snag him in the 11th round of the 2010 draft. He made a brief appearance in the Southern League playoffs last season after playing the entire regular season in the California League.
Pederson is in his first full season in Double-A and, at age 21, is playing against competition significantly...
I wish I could take credit for these videos, but I can't. Instead, credit goes to Mike Newman of FanGraphs. He gets to see the Lookouts on a consistent basis, which is something I can't do all the way in California.
He posted three videos of Dodger prospects on Christmas Day -- Onelki Garcia, Joc Pederson and Chris Reed.

Joc Pederson of the Los Angeles Dodgers checks in with FOX Sports NEXT's Inna Lazarev at the Arizona Fall League.
When I went to Rancho Cucamonga in April, I was hoping to see Joc Pederson in action. Instead, he was out after straining his groin. But I did get to see him in Stockton a couple weeks ago, and I was impressed.
He is easily the Dodgers' best position prospect and will be ranked a little higher in my midseason prospect rankings (out by the end of June). I ranked him No....
