1. Louis Melville - SP (AAA)
One of the best pitching prospects in the game. Durable and can pitch deep into games. Good control and really gets the job done against right handers. Success comes from his ++ movement and a lethal sinker. Should be a perfect fit for Dodger Stadium.
2. Rube Swann - SS (Low A)
Strong offensive player that should hit in the middle of the order for a contender for many years. Swith hitter that is equally good against lefties and righties. Good power. ++ against left handers. Should have the defensive ability to handle SS in the major leagues.
3. Victor Merrick - SP (AAA)
22 year old starter that should be ready for the bigs next year. Tough on both righties and lefties. Not overpowering but gets it done with outstanding control and 3 plus pitches.
4. Carson Hardy - SS (RL)
First round pick this year looks like he has a bright future with the Hollywoods. Defensively, will probably be pushed to 3B in the future, but his bat will surely play there. Great contact and power and murders left handed pitching. Durability is the only concern as he will be limited in how many at bats he will have per season.
5. Orval Gonzales - SP (Hi A)
Potential #2/3 starting pitcher who has developed nicely after being drafted in the first round. An innings eating workhorse who should be able to throw 250+ innings per year. Neutralizes lefties with a strong curveball. Pounds the lower part of the strike zone with great movement.
6. Richard Lee - SS (Hi A)
Big Time power prospect at the shortstop position. Projects as having ++ power and a ++ eye. Should hit for plenty of power while supplying a great OBP. Range and arm strength should play well at SS in the big leagues. Strikes out frequently.
7. Omar Flores - CF (AAA)
Centerfield prospect that is knocking on the door of the big leagues. Covers a ton of ground in the outfield and catches everything hit to him. Provides a lot of power that should develop into 25 homer power in the big leagues. Very durable player that should be able to handle the rigors of an entire 162 game season.
