His arm is solid-average and plays up because of his clean, quick exchanges. He's an average runner, and his instincts enhance his all-around game.

    DeJesus is patient to a fault at the plate. He falls in love with waiting on pitched when he could be more aggressive on balls he can pull. He has wiry strength but projects to hit for no better than below-average power.

    He'll likely hit at the bottom of an order, but a team that values defense and intangibles enough to live with his modest offense could find an everyday spot for DeJesus in the big leagues. He was unable to attend instructional league because of an injured thumb but should open 2008 in Double-A.

    Ethan Martin at Dodger Stadium - PE.com - Professional Sports

    Good to hear Martin is close to signing. Hadn't heard anything on that front since he was drafted.

    I assume he'll go into the Gulf Coast League like Withrow did last year.

    Nothing much from the Keith Law chat

    Craig (PA): I know its not a scouting question, but what is wrong with the Dodgers front office? Is it just the GM that is dysfunctional or does it go all the way up to McCourt?

    SportsNation Keith Law: (1:18 PM ET ) I think there's a schism there between the scouting group that was there pre-Colletti (and largely pre-Depo) and acquired most of the good young players on the Dodgers now, and Colletti, who favors veterans and has no particular attachment to Kemp, Loney, Billingsley, etc.

    More on Martin's signing

    First-round draft pick Ethan Martin was signed to a contract that included a $1.73-million signing bonus and took part in batting practice with the Dodgers.

    Martin will be developed as a pitcher, but the 19-year-old from Georgia was wanted by a couple of other teams as a third baseman. Seeing Martin hit four home runs in batting practice, Dodgers Manager Joe Torre asked, "Are you sure you want to pitch?"

    Replied Martin, "Yes sir, I guess so."

    Martin didn't start pitching full time until he was a junior in high school but said he was confident in the call made by assistant general manager Logan White to make him a pitcher, based on White's track record. White faced a similar decision when drafting James Loney in 2002 and decided to make him a first baseman instead of a pitcher.

    "It makes me feel good inside that he knows what he's doing," Martin said of White.

    Martin will travel Sunday to Vero Beach, Fla., home of the Dodgers' rookie ball affiliate. White said the hard-throwing Martin had a heavy workload this spring -- he threw 130 pitches in one game -- and will be limited to 35 to 40 innings for the remainder of the year.

    Here's a solid Q and A with Logan White On Martin

    Logan White on Ethan Martin | Blue Notes - A Dodgers Blog | Los Angeles Times


    BK: In terms of his style of pitching, I know he throws pretty hard, but in terms of the other stuff- movement, out pitches, etc., what do you see from him?

    White: He's going to throw well above average. He's already 90-95 (mph with the fastball), and pitches at around 92-93. He's got a great plane to the hitter- the fastball runs. But he's got a curveball that's really a plus pitch. If you look at our young pitchers who are up here- Billingsley, Broxton- they threw hard, but they also had quality secondary pitches. They were what we would call a "plus pitch." They were plus pitches when we drafted them, and our player development people shaped and molded them and kept them together until they got here, and that's where Ethan's at. He's got a plus curveball, a good delivery, and throws hard. I'm not into drafting just a hard thrower, not high. I like them to have that secondary pitch.

    Over the country, there's probably 2,000 guys who throw 90. 90 means nothing to me. But what separates them? It's the breaking ball. What kind of breaking ball do they have, what kind of potential do they have to throw it? Then their delivery and their command.

    I feel good inside too when Logan feels strongly about a kid.
