Re: Monday Aug 31 Minor League Updates
Have you seen the numbers the OF at Louisville has put up this season? McDonald, Gomes, Stubbs, Hopper, Bankston, Heisey? Playing on a team with too many players deserving of playing time cannot be held against Dorn. They even tried him at 1B to get him in the lineup. As far as being hurt, yes, he has a hip bruise. It hasn't kept him out long. But he wasn't put on the DL.
The true prospects play every day -- Stubbs and Heisey haven't sat like the other guys. Tells me Dorn is not seen as a legit prospect (which I've been saying for a while now). Maybe a LH bat off the bench, but not a regular or platoon regular. I could be wrong, we'll see.
