I hope the Dodgers worked this offseason with Zach Lee on how to properly wear a baseball cap.

I know he is older but I am surprised to not hear about the organization’s minor league player of the year Scott Van Slyke. He performed well in AA and has major league bloodlines as well.
(Although doesn’t that make someone feel old, knowing Andy Van Slyke’s kid is an “old” minor league prospect.)

Interesting to see DeJesus on this list, and listed as “should be a solid big league starter at second base.” He’s fallen off most Dodger prospect lists I’ve seen. And with the number of middle infielders the team has signed over the last couple offseasons, they clearly don’t see a 2B in their minor league system.

Not to mention if a solid big league starter at 2nd is your 14th best prospect, you’ve probably got the games #1 system…. is Darwin Barney a “solid big league starter”?

When I saw James Baldwin next to Ivan DeJesus, I started thinking about my baseball card collecting days.

What’s the justification for ranking Reed ahead of Webster?

It was a personal feel decision. He’s left-handed with an above-average heater and I think he’ll really take off once he stretches out as a starter and polishes his secondary pitches.

Heh…that’s a good point. I think of a solid big league starter at 2B as being something that Kyle Seager of the M’s could become if given the chance to start at 2B.
Since he’s blocked at 2B in Seattle, I wonder if the Dodgers might be interested in him? Maybe a package based around Chris Withrow and another prospect? The M’s could use the help in the bulllpen, if that’s his long-term calling.

Surprised to see Federowicz and Lindblom rated in the Top 10 due to their low ceilings. Thought one of one of the “S”s would be in the Top 15 (Songco, Smith or Van Slyke).
Love Sanchez as the sleeper pick. Someone tipped me off on him last May and I’ve been a huge fan since. He actually did pitch professionally in 2010 after signing, making 13 appearances in the DSL. His stats are available in the Dodgers’ media guide.

I think Garrett Gould is overlooked by a lot of prospecters (amateur & otherwise) also. If all goes well, he has the look of a 3rd/4th starter & probably a pretty good one.
Not a prospect anymore, but what about Jerry Sands as an MLB-er? Am I the only one out there who thinks he has a real shot to be a ‘Jason Bay Lite’ for at least a little while?

Gould’s getting some love. BA ranked him 6th in the Dodgers’ org, Kevin Goldstein over at BP ranked him 5th like Marc did. I’ve read that his velocity was up this year but didn’t see it when I saw him on video. Hopefully my eyes were deceived.
I’m a big believer in Jerry Sands. Ended the season by hitting .342 in September. Has the power and on base ability to be a productive player. I’d take him over the other options LA has going into the season. Unfortunately, I think he’ll be behind Juan Rivera on Mattingly’s depth chart. Maybe a big spring training could change that.
