After the first weekend, here are some of the early results from Dodgers prospects Keibert Ruiz 3-9, 2 BB, 0 K's Jared Walker 1-7, HR, BB, 3 K's Errol Robinson 2-4, 2B, SB Cody Thomas 3-13, 2B, SB, 4 K's Jordan Sheffield 1 IP, 1 H, 1 K Andre Scrubb 2.1 IP, 4 H, 0 K's, 2 BB, 1ER Ben Holmes 3 IP, 3 H, 4 K's, 1 BB I don't really have a firm grasp of why the team elected to send Ben Holmes to the AFL as he is way older than the competition at 27 years of age. This is usually used for teams to test their top prospects against more MLB caliber talent and though Holmes has had success since joining the org in, it is not like he has looked like the second coming either. Would have thought that May or White were due for some more innings here, so it is still a bit odd that they sent him, imo. Keibert Ruiz is obviously the big name to watch here. He turned in a solid season for his age, but I would consider it a bit of a letdown year. He started to catch on later in the season, so continuing that run here in front of a lot more scouts could get a little more helium back in his balloon. Cody Thomas is kind of a DJ Peters lite. He doesn't have the raw talent that Peters possesses, but he does have the tools to be an interesting potential MLB'er. He is coming off of a solid season in Rancho and has garnered some interest from scouting services leading up to the AFL. Andre Scrubb is coming off of a strong finish in Rancho and Tulsa after a rough start in Great Lakes(these words are hardly ever said together in regards to pitchers). I don't know much about Scrubb other than he was probably drafted for his size as he is BIG dude at 6'4" 265 lbs. He did not possess much of a FB when he was drafted, so I am interested to see if that has improved. Also, the kid has a pretty great personality. Jordan Sheffield is to me, the second most important player in this group. His introduction to professional ball has been quite the uphill battle. Armed with some of the best pure stuff in the draft a couple of years ago, Sheffield has completely fallen on his face while nearly every other top arm in the org around him has at least seen some stretches of success. Sheffield has been a mess, whether it has been mildly pedestrian K numbers, high WHIP or worrisome HR numbers, but the org continued to roll him out as starter when every scout in the world said he needed to go back to the pen.The club finally did the deed mid season and saw a bit of a turnaround. He had one truly awful outing, but was otherwise meh to decent the rest of the time. If he can ever harness his stuff, he is a true 8th-9th inning guy with 3+ pitches including an upper 90's fastball. A movement back towards what he should be would add two very intriguing bullpen arms for the Dodgers in the 2nd half of next season along with Marshall Kasowski.
