So much for Dodgers touted outfielder Brian Cavazos-Galvez coming to the Quakes. Cavazos-Galvez, ranked as the Dodgers’ 19th prospect by Baseball America, batted .318 with 16 home runs for low SIngle-A Great Lakes last season. He began 2011 in extended spring training with an injury, but was expected to join the Quakes when healthy.
Yet perhaps as a result of the promotion of prospect Jerry Sands to the Dodgers, Cavazos-Galvez instead was sent to Double-A Chattanooga, where he made his season debut on Tuesday, going 2 for 3.
Add Cavazos-Galvez to the list of Dodgers prospects who have missed the Cal League in recent years, including Sands, Clayton Kershaw, Andrew Lambo and Dee Gordon.
Thanks to Quakes official scorer Ryan Wilson for reminding me of Lambo, now playing at Triple-A for the Pirates.
