Preston goes 5 for 5 - Dodger Prospect Performances and Minor League Box Scores - Sep 4th-5th, 2009

No one has been a bigger disappointment to the Dodgers then Preston Mattingly. The son of the Dodgers hitting coach evidently did fall far from the tree. Preston turned 22 last week  mired in one of the worse stretches of his career. Mind you, this is the California League where hits are as bountiful as the beautiful woman who inhabit this wondrous state. Coming into yesterday's game Preston had gone zero for twenty three with nine strikeouts. His skills seem so negligible that it is hard to believe he has any chance for a major league career. No power, inability to make contact, no patience, no batting average.  So yesterday he went five for five with three doubles in probably his best professional offensive game.  Go figure.

Jamie Ortiz blasted two runs yesterday. Once upon a time Ortiz looked like a prospect but no more. Still only twenty one he has time to get back on the beam but those home runs seemed to be a product of the day. Mattingly got five hits, Ortiz hit two homes, and Caseres banged out three hits.

Jamie Hoffman was officially released by the Dodgers so they promoted Scott Van Slyke who was having a solid year for the 66er's. Van Slyke will skipp AA this year as the gets ready to play in the playoffs for the Isotopes. This move means the Dodgers skipped a chance to promote Lambo from AA and went with Van Slyke instead. Lambo's star has certainly dimmed after what can only be described as a very lackluster performance in AA.

Brain Galvez hit two home runs on Saturday as he continues to torch the Pioneer League.

Kyle Russell went 0/4 on Saturday with four strikeouts
