Dodgers: Top prospect performances through one week of play
1 of 4
The Dodgers are a ‘from the ground up’ team. They build from the draft and bank on the success of their prospects. With that strategy was born one of the strongest and most consistent farm systems in baseball.
Despite the departures of Alex Verdugo, Walker Buehler and Julio Urias from the prospect list, the system works like a paper cut: once one player leaves the cut heals on its own and the skin replaces itself.
The super system’s season kicked off last week with High-A, Double-A and Triple-A getting their respective campaigns started. Low-A Great Lakes starts on April 11 and Rookie ball Ogden doesn’t start until June 14.
So, through a week of minor league play and only the system’s top three teams having had games, here is 2019’s first prospect round-up where the top performer at each level will be recognized for a strong week down on the farm.
