The Dodgers entered the 2018 season with a minor league system that is filled with great depth.  While they may not have the most top 100 prospects, they are loaded with a ton of potential major leaguers.

Week one of the minor league season has come and gone for the Dodgers minor league affiliates.  While the Dodgers are off to a slow start, most of their minor league teams are off to better starts with the exception of the Single-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes who are 2-5 in the first week of the season.  The Tulsa Drillers went 3-3 and the Oklahoma City Dodgers went 5-1 as they are expected to be one of the best teams in minor league baseball this season.

While the Dodgers have a ton of quality players in their farm system, there are certain hitters and pitchers that stood out in week one of the minor league season.  Granted it has only been a week so averages and other statistics are off the charts right now, but it is still worth keeping an eye on which players in the minors kicked off their season with a bang.   The team of the week for the first week is easily the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers who mashed teams offensively with their quality players who did not make the Dodgers opening day roster.  Here are the hitters and pitchers of the week for week one.
