Out of those eight, none had a day quite like Brian Cavazos-Galvez's outing Thursday. The Albuquerque native and former Isotope went 5-for-5 as Glendale crushed Surprise 11-0.
"It's nice to start out early like this," Cavazos-Galvez told MiLB.com. "I was just able to put together decent at-bats."
Cavazos-Galvez had two doubles, scored two runs and picked up one RBI in the game. It was his second start of the season for the Desert Dogs in left field and a far improvement over his 0-for-4 outing in the season opener Tuesday, an 8-8 tie in 11 innings against Mesa.
A graduate of Albuquerque's Manzano High School and a former UNM Lobo, Cavazos-Galvez hit .263/.303/.366 with seven home runs and 40 RBI for Double-A Chattanooga this past season. He spent part of 2012 with the Isotopes.
As for the rest of the Dodgers' farmhands, the first four games of the year brought mixed returns.
Pedro Baez: The third-baseman-turned-relief-pitcher appeared in one game, tossing a scoreless eighth inning Thursday. He struck out two batters and allowed just one hit.
Yimi Garcia: After a stellar regular season as Chattanooga's closer, Garcia was called upon Wednesday to get Glendale out of a mess against Mesa. With the bases loaded and only one out, Garcia retired the last two batters of the fourth inning. He then retired three of the four batters he faced in the fifth inning. Garcia allowed one hit and had one strikeout.
Jarret Martin: A starter-turned-reliever, Martin has come out of the bullpen twice already. In Wednesday's 13-3 loss to Mesa, Martin pitched the eighth inning with his team already losing 11-3. He gave up a two-run homer to Wes Darvill, though Martin was able to finish the inning. Things went better for him Friday as he gave up two hits but ended up pitching a scoreless fifth inning.
Pratt Maynard: The catcher did not debut until Friday's 5-1 win over host Scottsdale. He went 1-for-3 with a run scored and drew one walk. He also allowed a passed ball.
Chris O'Brien: The other catcher the Dodgers sent to the Desert Dogs, O'Brien was behind the plate Wednesday. He was 0-for-3 with one walk.
Corey Seager: The top prospect in the group played well in Tuesday's opener, going 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI, though he did strike out twice. Things did not go quite as well Thursday as Seager went 0-for-3 with a run scored and two walks. He started both games at shortstop.
Michael Thomas: Another lefty reliever, Thomas pitched a scoreless ninth inning Thursday, striking out two of the three batters he faced.
