Jerry Sands, Rubby De La Rosa Receive Dodgers Minor League Awards

Earlier today, Jerry Sands was named as the Dodgers Minor League Player of Year, and Rubby De La Rosa was named as the Dodgers Minor Leaguer Pitcher of the year.  The award to Sands was no surprise given his outstanding offensive season, but the pitching award could have gone to a few different players.  Allen Webster and Matt Magill seemed to be in the running, and Aaron Miller also had a fine season.  However, the Dodgers generally give this award to players in the upper minors as opposed to guys in single A, so the fact that De La Rosa finished the year in AA helped his cause.  In addition, he had an outstanding 2nd half of the season and was the talk of the Dodgers minor league system as the year ended.

Both players will be appearing at Dodger Stadium on Saturday to accept their awards.  In addition, representatives from each of the Dodgers minor league affiliates will be at the stadium to participate in the ceremony.  Hopefully these awards are the first of many for these talented young players.
