Where is Chris Withrow?

Los Angeles Dodgers Top 20 Prospects inReview - Minor League Ball
Hu graded a B? DeJesus a C? We need to draft a SS.
We have a lot of touted 3B prospects and here is one guy who was poised for a breakout season but had to have season ending knee surgery.
#11 Josh Bell
Numbers were pretty solid before he got hurt.Quote:

This is interesting since after a good start, Adkins has posted up pedestrian numbers.

Rotoworlds Midseason Top 150 Prospects:
2. Clayton Kershaw - LHP Dodgers - DOB: 03/19/88 - ETA: Aug. 2008
Previous rankings: 2007 #40, mid-2007 #9, 2008 #6
2-3, 1.91 ERA, 39 H, 59/19 K/BB in 61 1/3 IP (AA Jacksonville)
0-2, 4.42 ERA, 39 H, 33/24 K/BB in 38 2/3 IP (NL Los Angeles)
Kershaw spent most of 2007 in the Midwest League and walked five batters per nine innings, yet there was a lot of sentiment for giving him a rotation spot coming out of spring training. He went on to receive his first chance in late May and demonstrated that he still wasn't quite ready. Subpar command is the only thing holding him back. With a 95-mph fastball and a curve that's about as nasty as any in baseball, Kershaw has even more upside than Price. He just needs to throw more strikes. Right now, he's about where Chad Billinglsey was in 2006. Clearly, the Dodgers should put him in the pen next spring and sign Brett Tomko to become their fifth starter.
