The Dodgers’ Low-A and High-A affiliates announced their 2014 rosters on Monday. There were a few surprises on each squad, but nothing totally unexpected.
I did my best to project these rosters last week, and didn’t fare as well as I did last year. My Top 50 rankings are in parenthesis.
Great Lakes Loons
Victor Arano (33)
Zachary Bird (20)
Jonathan Martinez (35)
Prediction: 12 of 25 (48 percent)
Biggest surprise: Bird repeating the level, Santana as an outfielder
Best prospect: Scavuzzo
Rancho Cucamonga Quakes
Chris Anderson (7)
Lindsey Caughel (38)
Julio Urias (4)
Tom Windle (11)
Prediction: 15 of 25
Biggest surprise: Jacobs repeating the level, McDonald listed as outfielder
Best prospect: Seager
The Quakes are absolutely loaded to start the season, while the Loons have some quality lower-level prospects who could take a big step forward this season. The Lookouts have announced their roster, but I’ll include the with the Isotopes, which have yet to announce their roster.
