Prospect Review #3 - No. 21-30

We are currently reviewing the top 50 prospects in the Dodger system as rated by going into the season to see how they fared during 2007. Today we take a look at prospects numbers 21-30.

30- Scott Van Slyke, of. Seems to be making progress but it's a slow process. Hit .254 with just two home runs at Great Lakes.

29- Eric Hull, rhp. Was a standout on the frequently abused Las Vegas pitching staff where he was mostly used as a closer. Was 4-3, 2.74 with 11 saves. Now back up with the Dodgers.

28- Anthony Raglani, of. With Jacksonville where he showed developing power (21 home runs), drove in runs (68) but not all that much in the average department (.248).

27- Zach Hammes, rhp. Had a bad back early, finally got into action with Jacksonville where he really didn't help his cause, going 5-8, 5.23.

26- Tim Hamulack, lhp. Sent to Las Vegas, never really got started before having arm problems- 0-1, 4.00 with one save.

25- Mark Alexander, rhp. Didn't deliver at Las Vegas (14.25 ERA), dropped back to Jacksonville where he got it together after a fashion but not nearly in the style that earned him organization Pitcher of the Year honors in 2006. Was used more as a setup man than closer this time and finished 5-1, 4.41 with five saves.

24- Josh Wall, rhp. Had great stuff but seemed to unravel when he ran into problems. Got with it later and was much better toward the end. Was 6-10, 4.18 at Great Lakes.

23- Carlos Santana, c. Converted to catching and seemed to be grasping the nuances of the position though he needs much more work. Has about the finest arm for the position in the system. Didn't hit the way he's been capable of- .223 with seven homers for Great Lakes.

22- Xavier Paul. In and around some physical problems, he did well for Jacksonville- .291-11-50. Stole 13 bases.

21- Jesus Castillo, rhp. Hasn't shown the form he had before elbow surgery. Was 6-9, 4.78 at Inland Empire.
