2018 has proven itself as an excellent step forward for the Dodgers’ organization-top to bottom. Of the eight Dodgers prospects chosen to compete in this Fall’s prospect showcase, aka the Arizona Fall League.
I chose to highlight Jerad Walker, Cody Thomas, and Keibert Ruiz in my article Dodgers: Top Prospects in the 2018 Arizona Fall League. Since just last week, those three players all played integral roles in their respective teams’ California (A+) and Texas League Championships (AA).
For a summary regarding both Double-A Tulsa and Single-A Advanced Rancho Cucamonga’s wins, read Michael Wittman’s article; The Dodgers’ Farm System wins Multiple Championships.
Most who know baseball know that the essence of any MLB club’s success starts from the ground-up, more specifically their farm-system. Acquiring not one but two separate rings, even at the minor league level, is quite a momentous event indeed.

Today, we’ll take a look at the three players I highlighted last week for their selections into this season’s AFL and their performances during the finals of the California and Texas League Championships.
