And here is some stuff from the follow up chat
No. 10 JAMES McDONALD
Team: Double-A Jacksonville (Southern)
Why he's here: 7 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 9 K
The Scoop: Jacksonville lefthander Clayton Kershaw gets all the attention, and rightfully so. But don't ignore McDonald, who has an impressive combination of above-average stuff, command and athleticism. One of the better-kept secrets in the minor leagues, McDonald has a 4.19 ERA with a more impressive 35-7 K-BB ratio in 34 1/3 innings. Originally drafted in 2002 as a two-way player and developed as an outfielder until 2005, McDonald is now in his third full season of pitching, showing excellent aptitude for his craft.
Q: Steve from Tallahassee, Florida asks:
Is there any truth to the rumor that Clayton Kershaw will be called up and make his Major League debut on May 17th? Or is that just some over-speculation by some journalists?
Ben Badler: I would be shocked if Kershaw was called up to the big leagues. The Dodgers want to limit Kershaw's workload by keeping him in the bullpen for a brief period, which is fine... I wouldn't read much more into that, especially since his command isn't big league ready right now. If anyone deserves a shot at some point in the year, it would be James McDonald before Kershaw, even though Kershaw clearly has the higher ceiling.
I'll also throw up McDonald's handbook profile.
Q: RYAN STONE from YORBA LINDA asks:
Who is better James McDonald or Charlie Morton?? Also what postition does Brandon Waring project at in the big leagues
Ben Badler: McDonald, and I don't think that one's really close.
