Report: Dodgers’ Triple-A affiliate moving to Oklahoma City, maybe

This one kind of came out of nowhere, but, according to a report from The Oklahoman, the Dodgers’ are relocating their Triple-A affiliate from Albuquerque to Oklahoma City of the Pacific Coast League. From the article: “The Dodgers reportedly have been searching for a city more suitable to evaluate their top prospects. Starting last season, the Dodgers have required Isotopes...

Los Angeles Dodgers acquire Kevin Correia

The Los Angeles Dodgers made another move in their rotation, acquiring Kevin Correia from the Minnesota Twins for either a player to be named later or cash. It’s against journalistic ethics, but I’m really tempted to just copy+paste my article from last week about the Dodgers acquiring Roberto Hernandez, and change some names and numbers. Many baseball minds think there is no...

Promoting Chris Reed before Zach Lee would be foolish

So, I saw something on the Internet today — and we all know that whatever you see on the Internet must be true. Some folks are clamoring for a prospect to replace Dan Haren (who pitches tonight in Anaheim) in the rotation. First, it was Zach Lee — the prospect everyone loves to over- and underrate. Now, it appears to be Chris Reed, which I don’t fully understand, other than...

Cubs 8, Dodgers 2: Arguably the Weirdest Game Ever

So, here’s the thing about tonight. This game was so dumb. I mean, everything about it was the worst. I could probably just say “nope!” and be done with it, or spend a lot of words to say how awful Dan Haren was, but you know what, enough silly things happened that it’s more fun to rip off Chad and just show you. I mean, I’m not even mad; this team just won six games in...

If Not David Price, What Starter Can The Dodgers Target?

I think we all know the Dodgers want a starting pitcher before the July 31 deadline, and for some obvious reasons. Josh Beckett, who starts tonight, has been fantastic, but he’s also 34, coming off the disabled list, and pitching in a way that seems pretty unsustainable. Dan Haren has been awful and has a vesting option in his future we all would like to see avoided. The top three...

Dodgers’ Rotation Excellence Masks Depth Concerns

The Dodger starting rotation, if you haven’t noticed, has been excellent. By one measure, you could even argue that it has been the most productive rotation in baseball. It helps when you have a pitcher who is on track to be one of the all-time elites, of course, but there’s also two guys who would be an ace on other teams, and two veterans who have been surprisingly productive...

Los Angeles Dodgers lookin’ out for number one

“We were surprised he was available.” 2014 draftee Grant Holmes(left), with a Jeff-Bridges like smile, shakes hands with Dodger legend Tommy Lasorda. That may be the biggest cliché in professional sports when talking about the inexact science of drafting players.  No matter if a projected number 10 pick falls to number 20 or number 200, the team grabbing the guy will be ...

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. Holmes, from Conway High School in South Carolina, was a consensus Top 15 talent...

2014 MLB Draft: Dodgers’ Big Board, v 1.0

Touki Toussaint, 80-name. This is the first installment of 2014 MLB Draft big board for the Dodgers. They hold the 22nd pick in the draft and should be able to land a quality prospect, as the draft is considerably deeper this year than last. These are the Dodgers’ first selections in the Logan White era (2002-present): 2002: James Loney (19) 2003: Chad Billingsley (24) 2004: Scott...

Dodgers @ Marlins May 2, 2014: Ryu’s Gone, Is Zach Lee Coming?

Very early this morning, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register noted that Paco Rodriguez would likely be sent down today after throwing 48 pitches over the last two days, and it made total sense. The bullpen was overworked after 20 innings yesterday, as you can see below, so some fresh blood was needed, and the only other player with options — Chris Withrow — is totally...

Your First Chance To See Zach Lee At Dodger Stadium

80 stirrups! I like Stephen Fife just fine. I do. Really! He’s turned himself into quite a useful depth starter to have around, the kind of guy you feel fine with throwing six or eight times a year, the kind of guy you never want to rely on, but know you’ll need. But… we know what he can do. We know what he is. And so when I heard that he’d be unable to start tonight due...

Roster predictions for Dodgers’ minor-league affiliates

Zach Lee, future Isotope. (By: Dustin Nosler) Predicting minor-league rosters is a crap shoot — especially at the lower levels. I’ve done my best to see which players could at least begin the 2014 at which level. There’s a lot more talent on some of these teams than there has been in years past (thank you Logan White, Bob Engle and Co.). Each level has players to watch on the...

Zach Lee will pitch in LA in 2014. (By: Dustin Nosler) Much has been made about Zach Lee since the Dodgers selected him 28th overall in the 2010 MLB Draft — a pick most thought was a punt because of Lee’s signability concerns.

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.

However, the team has seen a resurgence in both the depth and quality of its...
