Blog Kiosk: 3/19/2016 - Dodgers Links - Some Odds and Ends

The players on the 2015 Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, a Single-A club of the Dodgers, received their Cal League Championship rings yesterday.  What a beaut, eh?

Perhaps my biggest disagreement between scouting reports on Sierra and what I watched on video is the smoothness of his delivery. While Sierra has a quick arm and clean action overall, he shows some stiffness in his wrists and quite a bit of recoil in his October outings. I didn’t see a consistent release point and he had a tendency to pull himself offline and toward first base. It does appear on the brief film with the Dodgers that he has begun working to correct the recoil and keeping his upper body motion more in line with the target.
