    Here is one son of an ex-major leaguer who is actually performing.

    His defense is above-average and ahead of his offensive tools. He has easy, natural actions up the middle, terrific hands and body control when making plays on the run. 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.

    Ryan (PA): It looks like Jay Bruce and Clayton Kershaw both should not be in the minors. Isn't there a point when you just have to bring these guys up?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: Bruce should have been up to start the season. I can see giving Kershaw some more time to improve his command, but it will be hard not to bring him up by midseason.
    Jim Boca Raton, FL: Kershaw or Porcello??

    SportsNation Jim Callis: Oh, so tough . . . I'll go Kershaw for now because he's a lefty and done it at a higher level.

    Kershaw must feel like a Kings goaltender. No support.

    Hasn't given up an earned run since Tax day. 4 earned runs in 6 games and can't buy a win.

    Here's a guy I know the Dodgers are high on. Another infielder turned catcher and he's off to a fast start this season in Jacksonville.

    Code:
    Team	League	AVG	G	AB	R	H	2B	3B	HR	RBI	TB	BB	SO	SB	CS	OBP	SLG	OPS

    Minors		.319	20	72	16	23	9	0	5	16	47	10	17	0	0	.400	.653	1.053

He was added to the 40-man roster after he showed steady improvement in his first full season behind the dish last season.

    May always had intriguing juice in his bat, and it came alive as he slugged a career-high 25 home runs in 2007, albeit as a 22-year old in the hitter's haven that is the California League. He generates plus bat speed and can backspin balls with loft and carry, especially to the pull side. He feasts on fastballs, but has a habit of swinging and missing too often against offspeed stuff. His swing plane often causes him to work around the ball.

    He's a solid-average runner who takes nothing for granted on the basepaths and could steal 8-15 bases a year. May is agile and nimble with good hip flexibility behind the plate. Though he led Cal League catchers with a .994 fielding percentage and threw out 29 percent of basestealers, his 31 passed balls were the most in the minors.

    His throws have carry and accuracy, with solid-average arm strength that plays up because of a quick release. His receiving is his greatest defensive deficiency presently, but his hands are adequate. May's pull-happy approach may not elicit high batting averages, so his ability to hit for power and improve defensively are the keys to his value. May's status within the organization is at an all-time high, and he'll try to replicate his success in Double-A this year.

    Yea, I know the Dodgers had him on a pitch count in his early starts so he wasn't going more than 5 innings or so. That probably had something to do with his low win total as well.

    Regardless, the rest of his numbers look good. We're probably looking at a July callup maybe?

    Michael (CA): Joe Torre stated that when Nomar comes back he will regain the starting 3B position. Am I crazy or are there two options that are much better than him with Dewitt on absolute fire and Laroche sitting in AAA?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:02 PM ET ) You are not crazy. Not only are those two options better, they're also a lot less expensive.
    Dennis (Santa Clarita, CA): Jim, Blake DeWitt, nice story, can't last at the level he's playing now, or is he the real thing? Also, Andy LaRoche, soon to be traded?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:06 PM ET ) He's not supposed to be this good, this fast based on his minor league performance. But he was a first-round pick out of high school and he has legitimate hitting ability.
    Steve (Kansas): Kershaw or Porcello? McCutchen or Rasmus?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:46 PM ET ) Kershaw, Rasmus.

    Clayton Kershaw has been moved to the bullpen in Jacksonville.

    Pitched a perfect inning today

    This must be the start of the "keeping Kershaw fresh for the eventual callup" strategy.
