The rest of the Dodgers’ minor league teams announced their projected rosters for opening day. At Triple-A the Dodgers will have Tony Gonsolin and Dennis Santana as the main prospects in their starting rotation. Edwin Rios and Will Smith are the two top position prospects in OKC. Rios will play first and third base while Smith looks to prove he’s ready for the big leagues behind the plate.
The Tulsa Drillers will feature Dustin May in their rotation as previously mentioned, and he will be joined by fellow top prospects Mitchell White and Yadier Alvarez. Keibert Ruiz will look to have another solid season in Double-A while DJ Peters is also going to play in Tulsa to begin the minor league year.
The defending California league champs, the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes will field another very talented roster to begin their campaign. Connor Wong will catch for the Quakes once again as Ruiz and Smith get playing time in the upper levels. Jeter Downs who was acquired in the Puig trade will also begin his first minor league season in the Dodgers’ farm system, with the Quakes.
The Dodgers have a top ten farm system in baseball and their minor league rosters will once again be some of the best in all of MLB. Andrew Friedman and company have done a great job of building depth both in the major leagues and the minor leagues. It will be fun to see which prospects take another step forward this season.
