    I read that he sliced his hand pretty bad during extended spring training. Then had some elbow tightness so the Dodgers are taking it slow with him. Hopefully he'll be in Ogden soon.

    Pretty much, basically something for them to argue with in arbitration for set up met and middle relief.

    Hu graded a B? DeJesus a C? We need to draft a SS.

    Those grades were given out before the season. DeJesus' stock has risen and it is still too early to write off Hu. We draft SSs every year, the fact of the matter is, draft eligibles who are major league ready SSs in 2-3 years are just plain rare.

    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

    After a substandard senior high school senior season in 2005, Bell saw his stock slip and he fell to the Dodgers in the fourth round, where he signed for $212,000. Following 407 at-bats in Rookie ball he opened 2007 in low Class-A where he was hitting below the Mendoza line a month into the season. He turned it around and ranked as one of the Midwest League's best power prospects before being promoted to high Class A for the final month.

    Bell comes to the park with one thing in mind - to hit. He has a loose, lively swing with serious juice. His bat speed is above-average and balls jump off his barrel to all fields. His approach needs fine-tuning, as he falls into free-swinging modes that hinder his batting average. Sixteen of his 17 home runs came from the left side of the plate, as his swing gets long from the right side and he makes less consistent contact against lefties.

    He's a below average runner and defender, albeit with a plus arm. His feet are heavy and his range is below-average, but he's a good enough atlete that he could develop into an adequate defender with some determination and hard work.

    He profiles as a run-producing #5 hitter who won't hit for a high average. He'll continue his development in high Class A in 2008.
    Numbers were pretty solid before he got hurt.

    Adkins promoted to AA

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

    Rotoworlds Midseason Top 150 Prospects:

    Link

    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.
    53. James McDonald - RHP Dodgers - DOB: 10/19/84 - ETA: May 2009
    Previous rankings: 2008 #73
    62. Jon Meloan - RHP Dodgers - DOB: 07/11/84 - ETA: Sept. 2008
    Previous rankings: 2007 #112, mid-2007 #60, 2008 #69
    81. Scott Elbert - LHP Dodgers - DOB: 05/13/85 - ETA: Aug. 2009
    Previous rankings: 2006 #118, mid-2006 #37, 2007 #35, mid-2007 #46, 2008 #58
    116. Andrew Lambo - OF Dodgers - DOB: 08/11/88 - ETA: 2011
    Previous rankings: none
    133. Josh Bell - 3B Dodgers - DOB: 11/13/86 - ETA: 2011
    Previous rankings: none
    LaRoche and Hu are considered graduates on this list.
