Pods is a bench bat on a 3rd place team, and the Dodgers will be lucky
to finish 3rd ..
The catcher (May) is a bit meh, he keeps repeating levels and has a little bit of pop, Elisaul Pimentel is a A-level SP lottery ticket, but his numbers this year are pretty good (9+ K/9, 3ish BB/9, 5 HRs allowed from 88odd innings).
yeah i get baseball reference too.
Pimentel is intriguing. well he was. now he is in the AL Central. pass.
Really neither of the prospects are anything that will hurt the Dodgers. But it's nice to see Moore get some sort of return out of a 2 month rental of Pods. May will likely become the backup to Kendall next season with Pena never really showing his bat was up to the promise. He is probably better than AJ Ellis who the Royals were supposedly targeting before the season, hopefully he can hold the job a year or so after Kendall is gone and before Myers or Pina are ready to take over full time.
Pimentel is sort of just a bonus in the deal. Hard to say if his numbers this season are for real since it such a jump in his K rate. Likely he is just more minor league depth who may become a mid-reliever some day.
