Dodgers: Under the Radar Prospects to Keep an Eye on in 2018
By Hector Ponce
One thing many Dodger fans take pride in is home-grown talent. Fan favorites like Andre Ethier, Clayton Kershaw, Corey Seager and now Cody Bellinger have all come up through the Dodgers organization to have successful careers. Let’s take a look at some prospects to keep your eye on during the 2018 season.
With the graduation of Cody Bellinger and Corey Seager into the bigs, you would think the Dodgers system has taken a big hit. However, this front office just continues to replenish the wealth through the draft, international free agency and trades.
Many fans have already heard of the bigger names in the organization. Walker Buehler, Alex Verdugo, and Yadier Alvarez. This list will not include them as many fans are familiar with who they are and what they might just become.
This article will focus on the newer and younger players in the organization that people might have never even heard of. These players might not be as well-known but they will be sooner rather than later because of their production and importance to this team’s future.
These are players who you might want to check in on every once in a while to see their progress in the farm system. With one or two exceptions you may not see them with the big league squad for a few year because of the sheer depth of the Dodgers organization, but don’t let that fool you. They can be as good as any other prospects in the system.
