Invasion of 2013 draft picks

So much for sending draft picks to short-season leagues.

The Captains begin a four-game series against the Great Lakes Loons on Saturday at Classic Park. The Loons, the Los Angeles Dodgers' Midwest League affiliate, feature seven 2013 draft picks on their roster.

Saturday's starter Tom Windle is a second-round draft pick from the University of Minnesota. The Dodgers used the 58th overall pick on the left-hander. And he's not the highest draft pick in the Loons' rotation.

The Dodgers also sent 2013 first-rounder Chris Anderson to Great Lakes. Anderson, the 18th overall pick, attended the University of Jacksonville. The 6-foot-4, right-hander is not scheduled to start in the series.

Thomas Taylor (26th round, Kansas), Crayton Bare (28th round, Baylor) and Rob Rogers (32nd, Keystone College) are 2013 draft picks on the Loons' staff. Infielders Brandon Dixon (third round, Arizona) and Brandon Trinkwon (seventh round, UC-Santa Barbara) were also drafted this past June.

Lefty reliever Kyle Crockett (fourth round, Virginia) is the lone 2013 draft pick on the Captains' roster.
