Dodgers Prospect Notes brings the latest on a few prospects in the system that had performances worth paying attention to.
Andy Pages had a good night for Great Lakes, going 2/4 with his 27th homer.
Pages, who is still just 20 years old (and is the 3rd youngest qualified hitter in the High A Central), ranks 1st in homers, OPS, wRC+, wOBA, and ISO in his league. He also happens to look a little similar mechanically to someone familiar.
2018 5th round pick Devin Mann homered twice for Tulsa the other day.
This was Mann’s second two-homer game in a row, and his 5th homer in his last five games. One of his calling cards has been versatility, as he has started games at every position except catcher and shortstop. Side note: back in 2016, at Louisville, Mann was teammates with Will Smith.
Speaking of, the catching depth in the organization has been discussed at length, and at the minor league level Venezuelans Keibert Ruiz, Diego Cartaya, and recent IFA signee Jesus Galiz have garnered most of the attention. Fellow Venezuelan Yeiner Fernandez has been a bit lost in the shuffle, though he might grab some attention yet.
Lastly, here’s a look at 19-year-old Jerming Rosario‘s repertoire. Rosario, who is from the Dominican Republic, was ranked 23rd in the 2018 IFA class by FanGraphs.
