Los Angeles Dodgers – 2018 UTR Organizational All-Stars

Top Lineup –    C – Connor Wong – It’s ironic that we segue from the Colorado Rockies right into the Dodgers. In yesterday’s Colorado Rockies post, we mentioned how organizations have a difficult time developing catchers. Colorado being one … Continue reading

Chicago Cubs – 2018 UTR Organizational All-Stars
