2018 The Dodgers' 2017 first-rounder, Jeren Kendall can run, catch and throw, and if he can set aside concerns about his bat he has a profile capable of one day catching Jason atop the Kendall games-played leaderboard.

2019-12-18 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is there any life left in Jeren Kendall's stock after a 36% K-rate repeating High-A in his age-23 season, or nah?
(Tim from Jackson)
I can say he was on the long list for the system, but that went 40 deep, and it drops off fairly quickly. Hit tool matters, and it's hard to see Kendall having enough of one for anything more than up and down utility at this point in time (Los Angeles Dodgers Top 10 Chat)
2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)NEXT big prospect nobody is talking about
(Mike from NYC)
Not sure the parameters of nobody but I know there is quite a bit of excitement about Jeren Kendall being promoted to the Midwest League.

2017-07-25 20:00:00 (link to chat)Is Jeren Kendall a future top 10 prospect? Must own in dynasty league?
(Ben from NYC)
No, probably not.
