Ow, my elbow.
Dodger fans everywhere held their collective breath yesterday after Zack Greinke left his first 2014 Cactus League start with a mild calf strain (poor little cow). They’ve since exhaled. Now, another pitcher is ailing.
Prospect Ross Stripling (No. 6 on my preseason Top 50), will have a contrast MRI today after feeling discomfort in his elbow. He reportedly felt something...
Ross Stripling is starting to get the attention of the Los Angeles Dodgers as a strong candidate to reach the major-league level in the near future. Members of the Dodger coaching staff and front office have been raving about him over the last month.
At the conclusion of the 2013 season Stripling had already joined the likes of Zach Lee as a top pitching prospect in the organization...
Pitching was the story for the Dodgers‘ farm system this week, but one positional prospect stood out and was recognized for his great offensive performance.

In his brief career, he’s proving to the team and...

The Dodgers on Tuesday promoted right-handed pitcher Ross Stripling to Double-A Chattanooga from High-A Rancho Cucamonga. The 2012 fifth-round draft pick has been on a nearly meteoric rise since the Dodgers popped him last season.
Stripling, 23, posted some impressive numbers in the California League early this season. He struck out 34 batters in 33 2/3 innings, walked 11 batters...
A nightmare 9th dooms the Lookouts, Ross Stripling keeps going strong and the Loons' offense plays Jekyll and Hyde.
The Dodgers had a bunch of intriguing minor-leaguers posting solid numbers in the season’s first week.
