My Dodgers prospects pre-season rankings for 2013 are here, but it’s a bit of a short and sweet version.
I was planning on re-starting Prospect Profiles again this year, but unfortunately, I got busy and ran out of time.
However, since I still have the information I’ve gathered through watching the games and what not, I think what I’ll do is just release scouting...
The Dodgers have sent Matt Magill, Steven Ames, and Matt Palmer to minor-league camp, removing them from contention for a 25-man roster spot.
Not surprising for any of the three, as Magill and Ames are still a year-plus away from being legitimate roster contenders – especially considering the depth of the Dodgers staff and pen – and Palmer recently underwent knee surgery and...
The Dodgers cut three pitchers on Monday sending them to Minor League camp. Matt Magill and Steven Ames were optioned while non-roster invitee Matt Palmer was reassigned.

The Dodgers now have 38 players on their 40-man roster.
Ames, a 24-year-old reliever, saved 18 games and posted a 1.54 earned-run average for double-A Chattanooga this year. He struck out 72 batters in...
Mike Scioscia’s Tragic Illness: Mike Petriello has a list of the players up for the Rule 5 Draft along with who he thinks will be protected on the 40-man roster.
True Blue LA: Brandon Lennox has basically the same thing but from his perspective.
Both are interesting reads, and I was considering doing one myself, but this off-season has been/will be a mess, so I’m not entirely...
