2014-11-04 18:00:00 (link to chat)Zachary Bird snuck into the top 10 in 2013. The Dodgers have had a boost to their farm system since then. He had a strong finish to the 2014 season with a reported spike in velo into the upper 90s. Does he ever break into the Dodgers rotation?
(Donovan from Socal)
Bird is going to be an interesting case. I'm liked what I heard toward the end of the season and there is certainly major league potential in the arm, but he's still a ways away for me. Outside of Julio Urias, it's not as though the Dodgers are flush with top-flight arms that project to stay in the starting rotation, so he may get ample opportunity to prove himself capable and get a true shot.
