    Schebler is 25 years old, not real excited about him.

    Peraza is a top 25 prospect in all of MLB.

    Schebler led the league in AA in 2014 in HRs, 3Bs, and SLG%. He's an OF.

    Davis is the #17 prospect in the Dodgers organization. He's 18, and was their 5th round selection this year.

    Pretty solid haul, although I think they could've gotten quite a bit more had they been willing to move him at last year's deadline.

    #REDS ACQUIRE PROSPECTS IN THREE-TEAM DEAL, SEND FRAZIER TO WHITE SOX « Better Off Red

    CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Reds President of Baseball Operations Walt Jocketty today announced the acquisitions of IF Jose Peraza, OF Scott Schebler and IF Brandon Dixon from the Los Angeles Dodgers as part of a 3-team deal in which the Chicago White Sox received from the Reds 3B Todd Frazier and the Dodgers received from the Sox CF Trayce Thompson, IF Micah Johnson and RHP Frankie Montas.

    Peraza, 21, this year hit .293 with 33 stolen bases in 118 appearances for the Class AAA affiliates of the Braves and Dodgers and in his Major League debut played in 7 games for Los Angeles. In 461 career minor league games, he has hit .302 with an on-base percentage of .342 while stealing 210 bases in 259 attempts (81%). Primarily a middle infielder, last season Peraza made 18 appearances in CF, including 1 game at that position for the Dodgers.

    Heading into the upcoming season, Peraza had been rated by Baseball America the fourth-best prospect in the Dodgers’ organization. In 2015, he was rated the top prospect in the Braves’ system and by mid-season was rated the 26th-best prospect in all of baseball before he was traded to Los Angeles in July. Peraza also entered this year rated the fastest baserunner in the Southern League and the Carolina League’s best baserunner and best defensive second baseman.

    Originally signed by Atlanta as an international free agent in July 2010, the native of Venezuela on July 30 was traded to the Dodgers with LHP Alex Wood, LHP Luis Avilan, RHP Jim Johnson, RHP Bronson Arroyo and cash as part of 3-team deal in which Dodgers sent 3B Hector Olivera, LHP Paco Rodriguez and RHP Zack Bird to the Braves and RHP Jeff Brigham, RHP Victor Araujo and RHP Kevin Guzman to Florida, while the Marlins sent RHP Mat Latos, 1B Mike Morse and cash to the Dodgers and a 2016 supplemental first-round pick to Atlanta.

    Schebler, 25, spent most of last season with the Dodgers’ affiliate in Oklahoma City, his first action at Class AAA, and in 121 appearances produced 13 HR, 50 RBI and 15 stolen bases. He also made his Major League debut with 3 homers and 4 RBI in just 19 games for Los Angeles. Schebler entered the 2015 season rated LA’s eighth-best prospect.

    In each of the 2013 and 2014 seasons Schebler was an Milb.com Organizational All-Star and a post-season league All-Star, and in 2014 he was named to the prestigious Arizona Fall League’s All-Prospects team. In 2013, he was the Dodgers’ Minor League Player of the Year after hitting .296 with 27 HR, 96 RBI and 16 stolen bases in 125 games and leading the California League extra-base hits (69) and total bases (277).

    Dixon, 23, in 128 appearances last season for Class A Rancho Cucamonga and Class AA Tulsa combined to hit .263 with 19 HR, 68 RBI and 26 stolen bases. He also played for Glendale in the Arizona Fall League, where in 16 appearances he hit .295 with 3 HR and 12 RBI. Dixon was selected by Los Angeles in the third round of the June 2013 first-year player draft.

    Frazier, 29, was selected by the Reds in the supplemental first round of the June 2007 first-year player draft and was an All-Star the last 2 seasons. In his 4 seasons with the Reds he hit .257 with 108 HR and 324 RBI.

    Wrong guy. Brandon Dixon is 23 year-old IF drafted in the 3rd round in 2013. I don't think he is in the Dodgers top 25 but could be wrong.

    Was thinking along the same lines for my boy. He hated that the Reds didn't resign Arroyo, and was upset that Cueto and Leake were traded last year, and was pretty much disgusted when he heard Chapman might have been traded earlier this month. Heck, if Bruce and Phillips go, he might want to change teams!

    It's always tough to trade away an established player for a couple of prospects, but I'm in favor of a firesale so no complaints here.

    Weird how the Braves and Dodgers gave up on Peraza at 21.

    Todd Frazier traded for three prospects | redsminorleagues.com

    Scott Schebler

    Schebler was originally drafted in the 26th round of the 2010 draft by the Dodgers as a 19-year-old out of Des Moines Area College. He signed for well over-slot money, getting a $300,000 signing bonus to sign (4th/5th round money at the time). He has moved through the Dodgers system at a steady pace, reaching the Major Leagues in 2015 for 19 games, though he played sparingly, getting just 40 plate appearances.

    He entered the season as the Dodgers #8 prospect according to Baseball America, but his 2015 season wasn’t a strong one, hitting just .241/.322/.410 in the hitter friendly Pacific Coast League (after posting an OPS of .921 the year before in the Double-A Southern League).

    He’s already on the 40-man roster, but the Reds have room for him. A quick scouting report on him suggests above-average power potential from the left side of the plate (he hit 28 home runs in Double-A in 2014 – he also smacked a 444 foot home run in September off of James Shields this past season) with good bat speed. He’s an average speed guy who can play both left or right field. His 2015 season was a step backwards, but in the past he’s hit everywhere he’s ever been. In the 2014 season he cut down on his strikeout rate and that carried over into the 2015 season. His walk rate has also improved over his time in the minor leagues, though it’s just now at a level that isn’t below-average.
    Brandon Dixon

    Dixon was originally drafted by the Dodgers in the 3rd round of the 2013 draft out of the University of Arizona. Despite his pedigree from a big time college program he has really struggled as a professional. For his career he has hit just .247/.281/.396. He finally showed some life with the bat in the 2015 season, but it came in his second go-around in the California League as a 23-year-old with a second half spent in Double-A Tulsa. On the bright side, he had 25 doubles, five triples and 19 home runs to go along with 26 steals on a .263/.303/.443 line, though he only hit .244/.272/375 in Double-A. On the down side, he had just 28 walks to go with 144 strikeouts, representing a serious plate approach or pitch recognition issue that doesn’t bode well for the future of his bat.

    He was sent to the Arizona Fall League following the season and in 66 plate appearances hit .295/.318/.508 with seven extra-base hits, three walks and 15 strikeouts.
    Jose Peraza

    The Atlanta Braves signed Jose Perez out of Venezuela as a 16-year-old in 2010 for $350,000. He entered the season as the Braves #1 prospect, but was traded to the Dodgers during the 2015 season. He spent most of the year in Triple-A where he hit .293/.316/.378 before getting a late season call with the Dodgers in August for a week, then spending most of September on their bench.

    There are some questions about whether he’s a true shortstop or more of a second baseman, but he can handle shortstop if you want him to and profiles well at second base. He’s also spent some time in center field recently where his plus-plus speed can play well. He has used his speed to steal 47, 44 and 43 bases over the last three seasons.

    At the plate he’s a high contact hitter, striking out just 47 times in the 2015 season over 546 plate appearances. With that approach though comes an extreme lack of walks, drawing just 19 base on balls during the year, giving him a low on-base percentage despite hitting .293. Power is not a part of his game, as 10 home runs would seem to be the absolute best expectation you could get from him (he hit a career best four home runs in 2015).
