Think Blue

Obsessing over the Dodgers' minor league system so you don't have to.

A few notes

Good news from Vero Beach (via

RHP Bryan Morris is apparently doing well in Spring Training. The Dodgers have refined his delivery, hopefully keeping him from throwing across his body, and his velocity seems to be back to where it was prior to his Tommy John surgery. Also seems like his breaking ball is coming back. The plan seems to be to build up some arm strength and send him to either Low A Great Lakes or High A Inland Empire some time after the season starts.

LHP Scott Elbert hasn't yet begun to throw off the mound, but he's throwing off flat ground and is reportedly pain free. The Dodgers don't have a timetable for him, but so far all the news has been good.

3B Josh Bell came to camp about 30 lbs lighter than where he was last year. The fourth rounder from 2005 has had problems keeping his weight in check, but the slimmer physique has improved his agility on defense. A better body, combined with playing in the California League, could mean a big year for Mr Bell.
