    Here is another catching prospect of ours who has been doing really well with the stick thus far.

    Code:
    Team	League	AVG	G	AB	R	H	2B	3B	HR	RBI	TB	BB	SO	SB	CS	OBP	SLG	OPS
    INL	CAL	.298	35	121	22	36	15	2	1	29	58	22	19	2	1	.403	.479	.882
    #25 Carlos Santana

    Santana's bat is behind May's, but he's a better receiver and projects as a better all-around defender. He has good hands and quick lateral movement, with a real knack for blocking balls. Santana has a plus arm and clean release, helping him erase 38% of basestealers in his first season behind the dish.

    A switch-hitter with fair bat speed, Santana doesn't project to hit for a high average, but he can sting balls from gap to gap and could develop average power. His swing gets long and he tends to work around the ball rather than through it. He shows some feel for the strike zone and consistently puts the ball in play, but just doesn't do it with the consistency that May does. A switch-hitter, Santana batted just .213 versus righthanders last year. He'll advance to high Class A.

    Not much, he's not really a prospect. He is a 28 year old career minor leaguer.

    Luis Maza Statistics (Minor Leagues) - Baseball-Reference.com

    I'm assuming he has a sweet glove which has kept him around.

    Jonathan (Los Angeles, CA): Hey Keith. Any idea what the Dodgers will be looking for in the draft, and who might be available when they pick?

    SportsNation Keith Law: (1:06 PM ET ) Their preference is always for the high-ceiling player with some degree of polish. Doesn't always work that way, but that's what they like. I could see them going after an Aaron Hicks, and I know one of their national guys loves Tim Melville.
    Melville is a HS righty from Missouri.

    Melville would be awesome, but we'd really have to hope that he falls to 15.

    Well, BA took their first shot at a mock and Callis has Melville going 20th.

    Here is our projected pick:

    15. DODGERS. In the six years that assistant GM Logan White has run the scouting department, Los Angeles has used four of its top choices on high school pitchers. If no one else has bought into Hicks huge upside, the Dodgers might not be able to resist. They could pick Hicks and send him out as an outfielder, too.

    Projected Pick: AARON HICKS.

    Triple-A Las Vegas 3B Andy LaRoche (Dodgers) is all dressed up with nowhere to go. Back from surgery to repair a thumb ligament, the 24-year-old is tolling in Triple-A while rookie Blake DeWitt continues to set the National League ablaze. LaRoche, taking advantage of hometown Cashman Field, batted .308/.591/.769 (4-for-13) this week with a pair of home runs, five RBIs, six runs, a strikeout and nine walks. You can't blame Pacific Coast League for their care in facing LaRoche, especially in his own park. He's batted .347/.437/.622 in Las Vegas in parts of the past three seasons
    Baseball America chat

    Q: Jorge from Bronx, NY asks:
    Cahill is better than Kershaw! (They both are really young) Aree or disagree with that disputable comment?
    A:

    Matt Eddy: Disagree. Cahill is intriguing, but Kershaw has two otherworldly pitches (fastball, curveball), a 6-foot-3 frame and a track record to match. In 37 innings this season, Kershaw has struck out 40 and not given up a home run in Double-A. Best of all, he's trimmed his walks this season. He's issued 11.

    Most of the draft "gurus" have stated that Melville's stock has been dropping as the season has gone on.

    Here's a blurb from John Sickles

    21) Tim Melville, RHP, Missouri HS: Opinions are starting to shift about this guy, some rate him in the top 15 still, others have him dropping out of the Top 30 altogether. I don't know what to think.
    And something from Keith Law

    Aaron (St. Louis): I guess Melville pitched yesterday. I didn't think they would get the games in. Were you there to see it and if so what did you think?

    SportsNation Keith Law: I was there. Results were great - 13 K in 5 IP and a mercy-rule win. Stuff wasn't quite what I expected: 88-93, mostly 89-91, with a good-not-great curveball. Whoever the pitching coach is who screwed up his delivery cost the kid some money.

    Kershaw started today. Starting to think that he needs some more time.
