Format = Place Participant | Age on 4/1/2024 | Highest Degree Performed | Estimated Time of Arrival
1. OF Andy Pages | 23 | AAA | 2024
Pages might be a part of the Dodgers’ story in 2024 from chapter one if he can hit somewhat this spring. May want an harm or two to interrupt camp however figures to get written into the lineup by the point summer time rolls spherical. May’ve occurred this 12 months if not for a torn labrum that ended his season in June, only one sport into his Triple-A profession. At 6’1” 212 lbs, Pages options double-plus energy, plus persistence and a robust throwing arm from a corner-outfield profile. The shoulder harm throws this into query, in fact, but when he comes all the way in which again, he might make an early affect.
2. OF Kendall George | 19 | A | 2027
80-grade runner at 5’10” 170 lbs. Plus hit software. Double-plus defender. thirty seventh total choose in 2023’s draft. Burners aren’t at all times the best likelihood wager on the board however I’m manner too curious to overlook out on George, who slashed .370/.458/.420 with 17 stolen bases in 28 video games throughout two ranges in his debut season.
3. RHP River Ryan | 25 | AAA | 2024
2023 wasn’t a easy trip for Ryan, who went 1-and-6 regardless of pitching effectively in Double-A then posted a ten.29 ERA in his two Triple-A begins regardless of hanging out 12 batters in seven innings. Trying on the entire image, he recorded 110 strikeouts in 104.1 innings and set himself up effectively to assist the large league workers sooner or later in 2024. A two-way participant in faculty, Ryan has been making main positive aspects since changing to pitching full time, significantly by way of off-speed performance and command, which is the place I give him a slight edge over his cohorts on this record.
4. RHP Nick Frasso | 25 | AAA | 2024
An extended-levered 6’5” 200-pounder who will get nice extension on a double-plus fastball, Frasso can dominate plenty of lineups when he’s commanding simply that one pitch. When he’s successfully mixing in his slider and changeup, he seems to be like a long-term rotation stalwart. He took the ball 25 instances throughout two ranges, overlaying 95 innings and amassing 107 strikeouts because the Dodgers meted out his workload in conservative doses.
5. RHP Landon Knack | 26 | AAA | 2024
Demonstrates an actual aptitude for repeating his supply. Could be a bit much less attention-grabbing in different organizations, however the Dodgers proceed to teach their younger arms into producing constructive outcomes on the main league degree. Their rotation heading into 2024 at the moment incorporates three guys who have been rookies in 2023 (Miller, Pepiot, Sheehan). And so they’d be projected to win the division as we speak anyway. Bizarre wild stuff. Knack’s lack of a dominant providing makes him a bit unlikely to crack that group, however Ryan Yarbrough is in there, too, and so is Walker Buehler on his manner again from a second TJ. Loads of innings available assuming they don’t signal a bunch of starters.
6. 2B Michael Busch | 26 | MLB | 2024
Dude has just about at all times hit, so . . . all the things zen? I don’t suppose so. I’ve at all times struggled to see how he suits right into a first-division Los Angeles lineup, and so they’ve been prospect hugging fairly exhausting these previous few cycles, so his possibilities of getting traded right into a kinder taking part in time local weather aren’t all that prime. The post-shirt world simply doesn’t have a lot room for Busch-shaped second basemen, at all times out right here asking us to please clap for his or her slash strains of .323/.431/.618 with 27 dwelling runs in 98 Triple-A video games whereas ignoring how embarrassing that feels to all of us after we see their normal uselessness on protection. If the membership doesn’t have sufficient designated hitter choices to fill a full season, Busch has an opportunity to smash, and it’s definitely attainable that he might seize maintain of the DH gig and by no means let it go.
7. OF Josue De Paula | 18 | A | 2026
A 6’3” lefty who’s rising rapidly sufficient that I’m hesitant to even embody his listed weight of 185 lbs, De Paula struggled early in Low-A however improved all year long and completed with a slash line of .284/.396/.372 and a 17.9 p.c strikeout fee. Clearly, it’d be good to see somewhat extra energy than that, however he’s bought loads of time to get that half discovered. Must picture he’ll open the 12 months in Excessive-A. Turns 19 on Might 24. Will he make a game-power and be pushing for Double-A by then? Who’s to say, in fact, however he’s that type of athlete in that type of org.
8. 2B Jorbit Vivas | 23 | AAA | 2024
I’ve at all times had plenty of verve for Vivas, a 5’10” left handed hitter who strikes out about ten p.c of the time regardless of who he’s hitting in opposition to. He hit 13 homers and stole 25 bases throughout two ranges final 12 months and can spend the early a part of the season lurking behind whoever takes the second and third base jobs out of spring coaching.
9. C Dalton Dashing | 23 | A+ | 2025
Some individuals are in an actual hurry to run Dashing up their lists, and I suppose I can see it. He’s a robust hitter (15 HR in 89 Excessive-A video games) with excessive persistence (18.9 % stroll fee) and an honest likelihood to stay behind the plate. Bother for our sport is that even when Dalton could make sufficient contact on the higher ranges along with his low-swing-volume strategy, Will Smith would possibly slap the job alternative proper out of his mouth simply as he’s taking the large stage.
10. C Diego Cartaya | 22 | AA | 2025
We might copy and paste a good bit of Dashing’s report right here. If Kyle Damage can stay a starter, he’d get this spot and possibly land somewhat greater up the record, however I dropped him off as a result of I’m studying the tea leaves of 1 begin in seven Triple-A appearances. Additionally simply kinda the way in which he strikes learn as relieverish. Could be leaping to conclusions on this one. Smykowski could be proud. Anywhoozles, might kick this spot to SS Joendry Vargas, too. He’s the almost definitely to hop an escalator to the highest flooring after slashing .328/.423/.529 with seven homers and 19 steals in 48 DSL video games. He’s the beautiful simple selection amongst these three in a rebuild sort situation. Cartaya hit simply .189 in 93 video games at Double-A, however he was younger for the extent, catchers typically journey that lengthy and winding highway, and maybe most significantly for this enviornment, he nonetheless has important commerce worth, if my leagues are any indicator. I suppose he’s type of a Made Man now. You by no means actually know till a participant flails for a full season after which will get flipped for actual huge leaguers regardless. At all times a enjoyable one to see on the transaction feed.
Thanks for studying!
