Rancho Cucamonga Quakes
While they are likely to end up starting the season in Oklahoma, some of the Dodgers’ top prospects got an invitation to spend the first weeks of spring training with the big club at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz.
All of the Dodgers prospects survived the trading deadline that expired Thursday, July 31 after much speculation of bringing in another ace to the Blue Crew. Dodgers General Manager Colletti has valued his farm system so much, that not even David Price could change his mind. The Dodgers have arguably the best farm system in the majors. However, these players will need to be patient as the current team leads the whole NL, leaving no room for the kids. The Mexican prospect Julio Urias could be the next exciting thing, behind Kershaw, as the best pitcher in baseball. At 17-years-old, MLB ranks the left-handed pitcher as the top prospect in his position.
The NL’s richest pitcher Zack Greinke will begin a minor league rehab assignment Friday in Rancho Cucamonga in a Class-A game and could be ready to start for the Los Angeles Dodgers in two weeks, three weeks ahead of schedule.
