Ogden Raptors players to watch: Bellinger, Gonzalez, Leon, more

Please be legit, Julian Leon. Short-season ball is officially underway. Most of these guys have been playing in extended spring training in Arizona or, in some cases, not even professional baseball players to start the 2014 season. This Raptors’ team figures to have a lot of high-ceiling players and a good number of players from the 2014 draft class. Here are some players to keep...

May’s Dodger Insider Magazine: So Many Pitches

If you’re going to the series against the Giants that starts today — and you should, because the Giants are in first place, and the Dodgers are finally back home after what seemed like a never-ending road trip from beyond — you’ll see the May edition of Dodger Insider magazine available at the park. It has Matt Kemp on the cover. It’s very cool. Also cool, or not, depending...

Zack Greinke Is Feeling Better, But Ross Stripling Is Not

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...

Los Angeles Dodgers Top 10 Prospects

Historically, the Los Angeles Dodgers have been at the forefront of player development and scouting. The team has twice boasted at least four consecutive NL ROY winners. Unfortunately, this rich tradition was cast aside during the dark days of the Fox and McCourt eras, much to the dismay of Dodgers fans. However, the team has seen a resurgence in both the depth and quality of its...

Dodgers don't really need another starting pitcher with in-house options

All too predictably, one of the other teams overpaid for Masahiro Tanaka, and he took the money. The Dodgers did the right thing here, saying we’ll pay "X" number of dollars, but no more (where x is probably around six years, $120 million + $20 million release fee).Given his fastball velocity (good, but not elite) and past workload, the Dodgers harbored substantial...

Down On The Farm: Week Of August 26 – Urias, Stripling, Jacobs, Baldwin, Law, Arano

With the regular season ending for all affiliates aside from Ogden, Monday’s games are included in this week’s recap. Also of note is that the Dodgers have shut down Julio Urias, who hit his strict innings limit, even though Great Lakes made the playoffs.

Scouting report: RHP Ross Stripling, Los Angeles Dodgers' prospect

After the first couple rounds of the MLB Draft, it’s pretty much a crapshoot. Sometimes there are gems found later in the draft: Matt Kemp (sixth round), Joc Pederson (11th round) and Matt Magill (31st round). So, when the Dodgers drafted Ross Stripling in the fifth round, not much was made of the selection. In his brief career, he’s proving to the team and...

Making Moves: Ellis/Hairston hit DL, Bills to 60-day, T-Fed/Van Slyke recalled, Stripling promoted

Mark Ellis finally hit the 15-day DL, being placed on it Monday retroactive to April 27. The Dodgers activated Chris Capuano from the 15-day DL in a corresponding move. It took the Dodgers about a week longer than it should have, but as expected Mark Ellis was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Monday with a strained right quad. The move clears a spot for Chris Capuano to be activated...

Aside from seeing every player I absolutely wanted to, my first day at Dodgers' spring training couldn't have gone better.

Seemingly every player in camp was present, as the team was working on rundown drills. Dee Gordon was the loudest, which is no...
