Can any of the ex-Dodgers contribute?
We already touched on James Loney, but the Red Sox also received infielder Ivan DeJesus Jr., outfielder/first baseman Jerry Sands, pitcher Rubby De La Rosa and pitching prospect Allen Webster (pictured) in the trade with the Dodgers. Webster has the most promise, rated by Baseball America as the No. 95 prospect in baseball before the 2012 season. De La Rosa is coming off Tommy John surgery, throws hard, and projected as a front-line starter before getting hurt. Sands is a power prospect who has lost his way somewhat but could improve with a change of scenery.
