LA Dodgers Preview: Where Should Catawba Alumnus Jerry Sands Begin the Year?

'LA Dodgers 2012 Preview: Where Should Outfielder Jerry Sands Begin the Year?' by Ross Zelen for the Bleacher Report

In 2009, not even Jerry Sands could have predicted what the past few years have had in store for him. Now, going into the 2012 season, I am going to try to sort out the situation and predict where the sweet-swinging outfielder is going to find himself when Dodger spring training camp breaks in a few weeks.

Jerry Sands was drafted in the 25th round in 2008 out of Catawba College in rural North Carolina. Sands struggled in the Gulf Coast rookie league in 2008 but began to heat up in 2009, earning promotions to Low-A Great Lakes. In 2010, Jerry started to undertake the unbelievable journey to the big leagues; he was named the Dodgers Minor Player of the Year.

In 2010, the 6'4", right handed Sands smashed 35 home runs and batted a shade over .300 in both High-A and Double-A.
