Although it took a little more than three weeks in the Dodgers‘ organization to battle through the final stages of an agonizing blister on his throwing finger, lefty starter Rich Hill made an extremely impressive debut on Wednesday evening that left fans feeling a little bit better about an otherwise questionable starting rotation.
While the Los Angeles Dodgers forge ahead and continue to build a recognizable identity surrounding their 2016 campaign, two of the club’s most recent additions, Andrew Toles and Rob Segedin, continue to impress pundits with both their defensive versatility and abilities to generate offense.

The last time we had the opportunity to chat with 23-year-old pitching prospect Trevor Oaks, he was about one week removed from being promoted to Double-A Tulsa after beginning the year at High-A Rancho Cucamonga.
