Dodgers top pitching prospect Urias to undergo surgery

Left-handed top pitching prospect Julio Urias will be undergoing surgery, but Dodger fans can breathe easy as it has nothing to do with his arm. The 18-year-old will have elective cosmetic surgery on his left eye to remove a benign mass.

2015 MLB Draft: Dodgers’ Big Board, v 1.0

This is the first of at least three Big Boards I will do leading up to the MLB Draft. This year’s draft isn’t nearly as deep as it has been in recent years. There are some elite(ish)-level guys who are dealing with injuries, which could cause them to fall down the board. The depth is also lacking a bit, which will test Billy Gasparino, Gabe Kapler and the like as they run their...

Gabe Kapler And Positioning Prospects To Succeed

Here’s a dirty open secret about minor league ballplayers: They eat just horribly, many of them. Part of that’s simply just a reflection of age and culture. Think about what you were like at 18, 19, 20, away from home for the first time. Think about the garbage you probably ate. That’s just human nature, the first crack at a life without restrictions. A few years ago, there...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Freaks and Geeks?

The Los Angeles Dodgers are in the process of revamping their front office, and are doing so in a Moneyball fashion.

Is Gabe Kapler Coming To The Dodgers? (Yes, Please!)

In my senior year of college, I interned for NESN, which is basically the Red Sox equivalent of SNLA, except that people can see it.
