With the majors side of things now sitting at 44 players — including the injured Chris Withrow and Brandon Beachy — the Dodgers now effectively have 17 more cuts to make, but there’s...

Dodgers’ prospect Corey Seager batting practice video

Here’s some batting practice video of Corey Seager I shot on March 8 while at Camelback Ranch. It wasn’t a particularly impressive display, but it was the best of the four players he took BP with (Scott Schebler, Darnell Sweeney, Buck Britton). He’s been quite impressive so far in spring training, and at this rate, it’d be somewhat surprising if he wasn’t the team’s...

A.J. Ellis Has Legs, Hit A Homer

You can file this under “things that are ultimately meaningless but nice to see anyway,” A.J. Ellis hit a homer against Milwaukee yesterday. In and of itself, that’s maybe not that memorable. Alex Guerrero hit a homer too. O’Koyea Dickson has two. Darnell Sweeney and Kyle Jensen also have dingers. Hitting homers in Arizona, well, it’s just not unheard of. Dodgers @Indians...

Some intrigue among Dodgers’ 17 non-roster invitees

The Dodgers on Friday announced the 17 non-roster players they will invite to Major League camp during spring training. There are some familiar names, some big-time names and some that’ll make you say, “who?” To be clear, these players are on neither to 25- or 40-man rosters, hence the term “non-roster invitee.” That means guys like Joc Pederson and Juan Nicasio from the...

Winter Leagues Update #1: The Score So Far

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’ prospect Darnell Sweeney quickly becoming a ‘Guy,’ maybe

I was pretty high on Darnell Sweeney after his debut season. He was a 13th-round selection in the 2012 MLB Draft, and his .804 OPS (including .819 in the Midwest League) gave me hope that the Dodgers might have struck gold with the pick. Then, I saw him a ton last season with Rancho Cucamonga, and was thoroughly unimpressed — probably because my expectations were a touch high...

Dodgers’ SS prospect Erisbel Arruebarrena makes professional debut

Quietly, the Dodgers’ latest big-money international signing — Erisbel Arruebarrena — made his professional debut over the weekend, and he didn’t look half-bad. I caught a few of his plate appearances and a play in the field on MiLB.tv. Admittedly, I haven’t been able to watch all the video of his debut and second game yet, but I’ll just give my observations of what I...
