Podcast: ‘Dugout Blues’ episode 120 – MLB Draft, no runs, prospects

Happy Memorial Day. Enough thanks cannot be given to those who gave their lives for this country. On this episode of “Dugout Blues,” Jared Massey (Dodgers Nation) and I welcome back Steve Fiorindo to the progrum. He appeared almost a year ago to the day to talk MLB Draft, and he did so on this episode.

Fiorindo covers prospects — professional and amateur — for The Prospect Pipeline, and he is probably the most prominent videographer. If so see draft prospect videos on YouTube, there’s a good chance he shot it.

We talk about a lot of the guys mentioned as possibilities to the Dodgers, as well as some of our personal favorites. The draft is two weeks away, so expect more talk in the coming episodes.

On the Major League side, it was a rough week for the Dodgers. They couldn’t score against the Giants, didn’t score a lot against the Padres and won two games. Here’s hoping to a better week.

Hyun-Jin Ryu is out for the season and Yasmani Grandal is on the disabled list (probably just for a week). In the case of Ryu, the Dodgers will have to find a way to cope with his loss and replace him. Carlos Frias has been good, but he got destroyed on Sunday.

Julio Urias had elective surgery, and we’re not entirely sure why he decided to do it now. We question the starting and stopping of his workload, no matter if the organization is trying to limit his innings.

Jose De Leon debuted at Double-A, and aside from one inning, he was really good. He’s definitely making a name for himself on the prospect front.

Grant Holmes is on a roll after a slow start. He’s showing why he was the 22nd overall pick last year, and some teams might be scratching their collective heads for passing on him.

Finally, we close with the Q&A session. Keep them coming (especially the draft ones).
