Jon Gilmore is a third baseman who just turned 22 years old. With A-ball Winston-Salem, he's batted .318 on the year with a .754 OPS. The 33rd overall pick in the 2007 draft, Gilmore only has four home runs and has yet to show much of a stick, but as you would guess for a guy chosen so highly, he's got a lot of tools. They just have yet to translate to much professional success.

Over the rest of the season, Manny Ramirez is set to earn just around $4 million. It's up to the Dodgers to decide whether they want to save all that money, or save some of it and add Gilmore as well. Their decision should come shortly.
