Reed, Schebler and Lee, Pederson head Lookouts, Isotopes roster

The Dodgers even have these guys bunt on the back fields. Exhibit A: Casio Grider. (By: Dustin Nosler) The Dodgers’ Double- and Triple-A affiliates announced their opening day rosters on Monday and Tuesday (respectively). Like the A-ball affiliates, there weren’t many surprises. I did my best to project these rosters last week, and didn’t fare as well as I did last year. My...

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 set to make 2014 Cactus League debut

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. Lee ended up signing a $5.25 million bonus — the largest for any Dodger draftee ever. Now here here we are, 3 1/2 years later and he’s ready to make...

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...

But there's a very real scenario in which he's the No. 4 starter, and...
