MLB "Best Tools" Survey

The Dodgers' defending National League Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw was named best NL pitcher in Baseball America's "Tools Issue" survey of managers and front-office officials.

Teammate Matt Kemp ranked third for best hitter and power hitter and second as the most exciting player. Dee Gordon was voted the second-fastest baserunner. James Loney was the third-best defensive first baseman and Chris Capuano had the second-best pickoff move.

On the Minor League level, Tim Federowicz was named best defensive catcher in the Pacific Coast League; Garrett Gould had the best breaking pitch in the California League; C.J. Retherford was the best defensive third baseman in the California League; James Baldwin was named fastest baserunner in the Midwest League; and Albuquerque's Lorenzo Bundy was the best managing prospect in the Pacific Coast League.
