The Dodgers have always had a knack for developing their own farm system into fan favorites and superstars. For some fans, it is hard to keep up with them because many don’t have the opportunity to see them play. So to make it easier here are some of our top prospects and their closest current MLB comparison.

For this list, I will stay towards the top of the farm system. Players who fans have likely heard of, but have probably not gotten the chance to see play a single pitch. This means no Julio Urias, Alex Verdugo or Walker Buehler because most fans have seen them play.

Some of these players could become household names in the near future while others could have some immediate impact this season. This team has shown year after year that even a plethora of injuries couldn’t derail the season because the amount of depth this organization has.

Fans have always had a special bond with players who have come up through the system. Clayton Kershaw, Andre Ethier, Matt Kemp, Corey Seager and Cody Bellinger all had and still do have the hearts of many Dodger fans. There is just that feeling fans get knowing that the Dodgers developed this player through their system and lead the way to create this great path.

The only problem with this is fans take a while to finally get with that player unless they have seen him play. Minor league baseball isn’t exactly plastered all over sports center and MLB network so fans can only go by what they hear. Hearing the same phrases on repeat isn’t that helpful so these comparisons should help get fans an idea of what the future holds.
