The Dodgers faced off with the White Sox today, March 8th. There were a lot of highlights but many were not from prospects. Julio Urias was dominant and David Price looked great in his spring debut, hitting 94 MPH with his fastball. Zach McKinstry and DJ Peters were in the starting lineup again as management is getting a great look at both players. The prospects scheduled to pitch were Bobby Miller and Nick Robertson. As the game played out Robertson did not get into the game as Julio Urias’s pitch count was so low he threw an extra inning. Let’s hope Robertson gets a chance to throw in the next game.

Highlights

Sheldon Neuse came into the game in the fifth inning to play third base. After a slow start, his bat is beginning to come around as he collected his 5th hit in his 13th at-bat of the spring. ┬áHe actually leads the team in at-bats so the Dodgers are giving him a long look to see if he can be a utility player and a right-handed bat off of the bench. The one thing I want to see now from him is some of his power that he’d displayed in previous seasons.

Jacob Amaya also entered the game in the 5th inning. After a walk to James Outman and the single by Neuse moved him to third, Amaya got his first base hit and RBI of the spring. Amaya is a non-roster player and is most likely behind Zach McKinstry and Neuse on the depth chart for a role on the major league team. He’ll likely start the season in Double-A or Triple-A.

Whenever Bobby Miller takes the mound he draws attention. He did walk a batter but then the next two batters hit grounders to Neuse at third base to get a double play and a ground out. Miller will probably start the season in the lower minors but don’t be surprised to see him move up quickly.

Final Thoughts

We now have a YouTube Playlist of our media appearances. We’d really appreciate you subscribing to our YouTube Channel as we have some big plans coming up. If we get enough subscribers we can go live on YouTube. On Tuesday, March 9th, the Dodgers play the Reds at 5:05 PM PST. I do appreciate the night games.
