Sweeney was brought back to the Dodgers’ organization after being one of their top prospects to start his career. Although he never panned out the way people thought he might have, he has a chance to fill some gaps this year for the big league club.
He’s had a solid spring season, slashing .287/.333/.486, and filled out just about every space on the stat sheet. He was one of only a few Dodgers to steal a base in the March and can do a bit of everything.
Like Segedin, his time is now, but it wouldn’t be a shocker to see him get a few chances in the grande leagues.
For those truly well versed with the Dodgers’ farm system, you’ll remember Dickson from the tremendous spring he had in 2016. The rest of his season went just as well, with a .994 OPS and 18 bombs in AAA, making it hard to ignore his bat.
Dickson’s 2017 spring didn’t go quite as well, but it was nothing to be ashamed of. At 27, his major league window is slowly starting to close and it will be interesting to see if Los Angeles gives a chance to a prospect that certainly proved he could swing the bat over the last few years.
Every list needs a dark horse candidate and Kyle Garlick fills that role nicely for the Dodgers. He only managed a few at-bats with the major league club this spring, but as a 28th round pick out of Cal Poly Pomona in 2015, it’s probably surprising to most that he’s even there. Not to me.
Having seen him play a lot over the last few years, I can confidently say his numbers are no fluke. For his career in the minors (188 games), Garlick has hit .311 with 28 round trippers, 120 RBI and a smoking .899 OPS. His biggest concern going forward will the his strikeout rate, but don’t be shocked if Garlick makes some more noise this year.
