How the Prospects Fared No. 1

Before the 2006 season rated 54 Dodger minor league players as worthy of prospect status. Now, it's time to review how each fared during the year. The countdown begins with Nos. 54 down to 41.

#54- Ramon Troncoso, rhp. Seemed overwhelmed at Vero Beach (1-3, 6.75). Sent back to Columbus, he became the closer and was strong ( 4-0, 2.41, 15 saves).

#53- Trayvon Robinson, of. Became a switch-hitter and not surprisingly had some problems adjusting. Came on well, though. (.254-2-20. Stole five bases in six tries.)

#52- Casey Hoorelbeke, rhp. Had a generally marvelous year at Jacksonville. Tired a bit at the end. (2-2, 2.63, seven saves.)

#51- Ryan Carter, of. Got off to a flying start at Vero Beach, then was hurt and slumped badly when he came back. Was released after going .205-3-16.

#50- Miguel Ramirez, rhp. Was the closer at Ogden. Did a good job. (2-3, 3.82, eight saves, 46 strikeouts in 35 innings)

#49- Danny Muegge, rhp. Had an uneven season at Jacksonville with both good and not-so-good moments. ((9-9, 3.86).

#48- Brian Myrow, of. Released before the season began, played in Japan.

#47- James McDonald, rhp. Back to full-time pitching, he began slowly but in his last few starts was outstanding. (5-10, 3.98, 146 strikeouts in 142 innings).

#46- Eduardo Perez, 3b. Began at Columbus, dropped back to Ogden (.255), made it back to Columbus again but never did hit his stride, really. (.248-4-28)

#45- Julio Pimentel, rhp. Faltered both as a starter and in relief at Vero Beach (3-8, 8.69). Was traded to Tampa Bay.

#44- Sergio Pedroza, of. Hit the long ball at Columbus (.281-21) , did little hitting at Vero (.154-3) and was traded to Tampa Bay.

#43- Jordan Pratt, rhp. Generally inconsistent at Columbus (8-4, .4.85, 83 strikeouts in 78 innings).

#42- Josh Bell, 3b. Ripped the ball at Ogden (.308-12-53).

#41- Miguel Sanfler, lhp. Not good at Columbus (1-4, 9.14) but very proficient at Ogden (2-1, 2.18). Used in relief.
