Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Joc Pederson

Selected in the 11th-round of the 2010 draft, Joc Pederson was a long shot to sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers, but was offered $600,000 and bought out of a commitment to USC. After going hitless in his debut, Pederson has hit at nearly every stop. In 2011, he OPS’d .997 with Ogden before a late-season promotion to Great Lakes, where he struggled. In 2012, he skipped Low-A and went straight to High-A Ranch ...

The 1981 Los Angeles Dodgers won 29 of their first 40 games only to have some of their momentum stopped by a labor strike that halted baseball from June 12 to August 9. The Dodgers finished the season with 63 wins, which was good for second place in the NL West. The Dodgers met the Houston Astros in the NLDS and fell behind 2-0 in the series before rattling off three consecutive wins at Dodger Stadium to ad ...

Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Carlos Triunfel

Back in April, the Los Angeles Dodgers claimed infielder Carlos Triunfel off waivers from the Seattle Mariners. He was placed on waivers to be removed from the Mariners 40-man roster. Initially thought to be a move for minor-league depth, Triunfel ended up making several trips to the big leagues due to injuries. He was called up at the end of April for a pair of games, but did not appear in any. Triunfel wa ...

Dodgers 2014 Player Review: Yimi Garcia

Signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2009, Yimi Garcia made his debut with the Dominican Summer League that same year and pitched well; Garcia's performance earned himself a move to the United States in 2010. The right-hander struggled in his first season in rookie ball, posting a 7.04 ERA in 13 games with the Arizona League Dodgers. The next season, Garcia moved up to Ogden and it’s been smooth sailing ...

Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Chris Withrow

After finishing the 2013 season strongly and becoming one of the more reliable arms in the bullpen, Chris Withrow figured to have himself a roster spot in 2014. However, that was before the Los Angeles Dodgers re-signed Brian Wilson and J.P. Howell, and added Chris Perez and Jamey Wright. With the veteran depth in the bullpen, Withrow’s spot on the roster was put in doubt as he was seen as the odd man out. ...

Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Daniel Coulombe

A 25th-round pick out of Texas Tech in the 2012 draft, Daniel Coulombe showed swing and miss stuff early. In his debut season, the left-hander struck out 37 batters in just 25.1 innings between Rookie Ogden and Low-A Great Lakes. The following season, Coulombe spent the entire year with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, striking out 11.5 batters per nine innings while posting a 4.05 ERA. He returned to Rancho to s ...

Dodgers 2014 Player Reviews: Chone Figgins

With the Los Angeles Dodgers needing to replace utility players Jerry Hairston Jr., Nick Punto, Skip Schumaker and Michael Young from their 2013 roster, they signed Chone Figgins to a Minor-League deal that included an invitation to Spring Training. Figgins was released by the Miami Marlins in March of last year and sat out the entirety of the 2013 season. He was named to the All-Star team in 2009 and turne ...
