Catcher Tommy Joseph, outfielders Aaron Altherr and Kelly Dugan, and lefty Rob Rasmussen were added to the Phillies 40-man roster today, bringing the Phillies active roster to 39.
Joseph, 22, is playing Dominican Winter ball after missing a majority of the 2013 season with concussion-related issues. Joseph was the headlining piece of the trade that sent Hunter Pence to San Francisco...
In the last minute trade for the talents of Michael Young, the Phillies recieved the now thrice traded LHP Rob Rasmussen. Rasnussen was amongst a dominant 2010 UCLA rotation that featured Garret Cole and Trevor Bauer. He would be drafted in the second round of the 2010 draft by Miami....
A couple of good prospects performed well this week in the Dodgers’ farm system. But the teams aren’t performing that well — especially the Great Lakes Loons. The squad can’t hit, leading to a system-low 14 wins.

Rusty Ryal – 1B

Kind of a slow week for Albuquerque...
John Ely burst onto the scene with the Dodgers in 2010. The
team had acquired him and Jon Link from the White Sox for Juan Pierre. Elymania
spawned and lasted for longer than anyone could have expected. But it ended
seemingly as quickly as it began.
Fast forward nearly three years. Ely was coming off of a
masterful performance in the Pacific Coast League in 2012. He...
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...
The Dodgers have dealt John Ely to the Astros in exchange for minor-league lefty Rob Rasmussen.
Rasmussen, a SoCal native and UCLA graduate, was selected by the Dodgers in the 27th round of the 2007 draft but declined to sign and instead became a Bruin. He was drafted by the Marlins in the 2nd round of the 2010 draft and acquired by Houston in 2012 as part of the Carlos Lee deal...
Not the trade some were expecting, but a trade nonetheless. The Dodgers sent John Ely, the perpetrator of "Elymania" a few years ago to Houston for left-handed pitcher Rob Rasmussen.
With the Dodgers signing Zack Greinke and Hyun-Jin Ryu, while also shopping starters Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang, Ely was about 15th on the starting pitcher depth chart. It's...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have traded right-handed pitcher John Ely to the Houston Astros in exchange for minor league left-hander Rob Rasmussen.
Rasmussen, 23, is a native of Arcadia and played collegiately at UCLA after starring at Polytechnic High School in Pasadena. In 2007, the Dodgers selected him in the 27th round of the amateur draft, but he decided to attend UCLA instead...
The Astros have traded minor league left-hander Rob Rasmussen to the Los Angeles for right-hander John Ely.
The 26-year-old Ely spent most of last season with Triple-A Albuquerque, where he went 14-7 with a 3.20 ERA in 27 starts. He is 4-13 with a 5.70 ERA in 19 big league starts and six relief appearances with the Dodgers during the last three seasons.
Rasmussen was a combined...
