Alex Verdugo, of, LA Dodgers

Alex Verdugo

Alex Verdugo is one of the more exciting prospects that I was able to see play while on vacation, and I am really lucky that I was able to get him–just a couple days after I got home he was bumped from Low-A Great Lakes to High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Verdugo was a 2nd round pick out of Sahuaro HS, Tucson.  He hit very well in his pro debut and was rated the Dodgers #5 prospect coming into the season.  In 2015, he was having a very solid season in Low-A, hitting for average, stealing bases, good power and excellent defense–pretty much everything you could ask for in an outfield prospect.  His bump to High-A is very much deserved.

He was a very nice dude the day that he signed–the crowd was pretty heavy since it was Cleveland Sports Night–but he still stopped and signed for everyone.  It was very refreshing after spending the previous week getting totally ignored by big league players in downtown Cleveland.

The Dodgers are very lucky to have him, and I am really happy to add his autograph to my collection.
