1- Chad Billingsley, rhp, Los Angeles- Doing better lately but still nowhere near what it is hoped he will do in days to come. Currently 2-3, 3.93.
2- Andy LaRoche, 3b, Las Vegas- He looks more than ready to move up but the acquisition of Wilson Betemit will impede that. .336-6-17.
3- Joel Guzman, of, Durham- Was hitting .297-11-55 for Las Vegas when traded to Tampa Bay.
4- Russell Martin, c, Los Angeles- Hitting .293 and catching extremely well, he's a legitimate Rookie of the Year candidate.
5- Scott Elbert, lhp, Jacksonville- In his last two starts was superb in one, then wild in another. 3-2, 3.21, 38 strikeouts in 28 innings.
6- Matt Kemp, of, Las Vegas- Well, the home runs have been missing (he has one) but he's hit everything in sight. Batting .386
7- James Loney, 1b, Los Angeles- Has generally hit well since being recalled but when either Jeff Kent or Nomar get back, he may have to go back down again. Was
hitting .372-8-57 at Las Vegas when recalled.
8- Blake DeWitt, 3b/2b, Vero Beach- A somewhat disappointing average (.263) but has turned the power up a notch or two (17 home runs).
9- Jonathan Broxton, rhp, Los Angeles- Now they're talking about his becoming the LA closer down the road. 2-0, 3.19.
10- Greg Miller, lhp, Las Vegas- Shoulder problems again caused a stint on the disabled list. He's back but still having trouble with walks (24 in as many
innings ). 2-0 4.50
11- Justin Orenduff, rhp, Jacksonville- Out with an arm injury. Was 4-2, .3.40 when he went down.
12- Hong-Chi Kuo, lhp, Las Vegas- Moved into the starting rotation with less than stellar results until his last start. 2-3, 4.60, 35 strikeouts in 29 innings.
13- Tony Abreu, 2b, Jacksonville- The managers named him the best fielding second baseman in the Southern League. Has raised his average to .292 also.
14- Andre Ethier, of, Los Angeles- Another who has a shot at Rookie of Year. His .343 average tops all first-year players.
15- Delwyn Young, of, Las Vegas. His average may only be .279 but he's providing loads of pop- 32 doubles, 14 home runs, good for 74 RBI.
