Top 10 Update
–Julio Urias returned to the mound last week, pitching two innings for the Arizona League Dodgers. He’s being eased back from his eye surgery, meaning he could make a few stops up the ladder on his way back to Double-A.
–Corey Seager had a strong week, batting .321 with one home run and four doubles. It’s hard to imagine he’ll remain in Triple-A much longer.
–Grant Holmes had an up and down outing, going four scoreless while also walking five. He’s struggled a bit with his control, but the 19 year old is showing an impressive three-pitch mix already.
–Alex Verdugo continues to dominate, batting .382 last week and raising his overall average to .285.
–Jose De Leon continues to strike guys out at an impressive rate, fanning 10 in six innings but also allowing a pair of home runs. He already has 122 strikeouts this year in 89 innings.
–Julian Leon hit his third home run of the season but is still struggling, batting .194 last week.
–Chris Anderson had a tough start last week, allowing four earned runs in 3.2 innings, though he maintains a 3.57 ERA in 16 starts.
–Zach Lee made another rehab start, this time in Rancho Cucamonga, before rejoining the OKC Dodgers on Sunday. With Rancho, he went five innings allowing a pair of runs, then pitched even better in Colorado Springs, giving up one run in five.
Seemingly fully recovered from the tingling in the fingers on his right hand, Lee could be in line to be the next man up for the big club.
–Darnell Sweeney hit well last week, batting .333 with one home run and four doubles.
–Peter Lavin, a Minor League free agent pickup, had a stellar week for Tulsa, hitting .407 with two home runs, two triples and two doubles.
–O’Koyea Dickson hit a pair of homers last week, giving him seven on the year.
–Leonardo Crawford bounced back from two rough starts with four no-hit innings.
-Rehabbing Trevor Cahill went four no-hit innings with Rancho while striking out eight. The Dodgers appear to view him as a starter, which is unsurprising given their dwindling depth.
