Topps Comes Through: Matt Kemp and Corey Seager Autos, Redeemed!

I received a very nice mailday from Topps a few months back with a couple of outstanding redemptions. I was very confident one would be returned but the other was up in the air for some time. Well, until Matt Kemp returned all of his redemptions, that is. Oh, what a happy day that was in the PTSIA household.The Kemp is the Orange parallel out of 2013 Topps Tribute and is numbered...

2014 Dodgers All-Prospect team

This is the third year I’ve named an all-prospect team, and if you’ve ever read any of our prospect coverage, you’ll recognize a lot of these names. But, there are a few that will have you clicking their Baseball Reference link because you didn’t know they existed. 2012 2013 To be eligible for this list, a player must have been prospect-eligible for the 2014 season, and...

My 2014 Dodgers’ Minor League Players of the Year

This was one of the more interesting minor-league seasons in the Dodgers’ system in quite some time. There were offensive prospects who were expected to perform — and did. There were pitching prospects who were expected to perform — and, for the most part, did not. Selecting my Minor League Player and Pitcher of the Year was no easy task because of this. I nailed the real Dodger...

Corey Seager headlines Dodgers’ prospects headed to Arizona Fall League

Arizona Fall League rosters were announced on Tuesday, and the Dodgers are sending some notable prospects, headlined by top prospect Corey Seager. Seager will return for his second AFL stint. He went last season, and, to put it lightly, had a rough time: .181/.253/.306. He was clearly fatigued, yet some were concerned about his late-season performance at Rancho Cucamonga and his...

Dodgers’ top prospect Corey Seager wins California League MVP

To what should be the surprise of no one, Corey Seager on Friday was named the 2014 California League Most Valuable Player. While he isn’t in the Cal League anymore, he still ranks at or near the top in many statistical categories. His .352 batting average (minimum 350 plate appearances) is one point behind 23-year-old Jordy Lara of High Desert (Mariners). He still ranks 11th in...

Scott Schebler’s impressive play might add to the outfield logjam

A prospect’s journey through the minor leagues has many twists and turns. Unless a prospect is a no doubt, can’t-miss guy like a Corey Seager, there’s always going to be questions surrounding him. Scott Schebler is doing all he can to answer the questions about him and his prospectness. Schebler, 23, is coming off a fantastic 2013 season in which he hit .296/.360/.581 with...

Second Half Issue: Dan Haren Wants That Vesting Option

We all think the Dodgers are going to add another starting pitcher sometime before the trading deadline, but while the popular thought is David Price — the Dodgers being one of the few teams with the prospects to get him, the bankroll to afford him, and a playoff run to make it worthwhile — that’s potentially not the right direction. Another top ace would certainly be fun...

Dodgers’ prospect scouting report July 2014: Corey Seager

In a recent article at Baseball Prospectus, the fellas there wrote about the 2012 redraft — basically, it’s the draft in hindsight. Corey Seager ended up going No. 10 to the Colorado Rockies. I’m thinking that might have been too low, and others in the baseball world would probably agree (but the 2012 draft was deep). Seager is not only a budding star in the prospect world...

Julio Urias and Corey Seager impress at Futures Game

Julio Urias and Corey Seager represented the Dodgers well in Sunday’s Futures Game in Minnesota. Urias pitched in the fifth inning of the game, and did nothing to dispel the hype he’s getting. He was at 92-94 MPH with the fastball in his 14-pitch outing. He touched 95 MPH on the MLB Network radar gun, and 97 MPH in-stadium radar gun. He struck out the Nationals’ Michael Taylor...

Scott Elbert is on the mend and believes he can help the Dodgers after the All-Star break, but Joc Pederson will now be missing from these updates for at least another week and possibly more after separating his right shoulder. Meanwhile, Corey Seager continues to excel, and Jose De Leon showed his promise. June 23 Hitter Of The Day: Corey Seager (A+) went 4-for-6 with his 27th double...

Miguel Rojas‘ hot stretch earns him a promotion, Corey Seager is proving he has nothing to prove, and Chris Anderson continues to be puzzling.

Dodgers select RHP Grant Holmes at No. 22 in the 2014 MLB Draft

Dat hair! The Dodgers broke their streak of not drafting prep pitchers by taking Grant Holmes with the 22nd pick in the 2014 MLB Draft. This is quite the get for the Dodgers this late in the first round. The last time the Dodgers drafted a high school pitcher in the first round was Zach Lee in 2010.

Three Dodgers Among ESPN’s Top 25 Prospects

I have to be honest: I don’t really look at the standings until July. All that matters is how the Dodgers do, because they have no control (other than head-to-head meetings) against what the other NL teams are doing. So yeah, it’s a bummer that they’re 7.5 games out in the West, but the Giants can’t play like this forever (um, probably) and either way, they’re tied for...
