Dodgers select seven prospects to play in the Arizona Fall League
The Dodgers have selected their seven prospects to play for the Glendale Desert Dogs in the Arizona Fall League. The league begins play on September 18th.
The seven Dodgers’ prospects that will play in this year’s Arizona Fall League have been revealed. The prospects are Mitchell White, Omar Estevez, Gerardo Carrillo, Devin Mann, Marshall Kasowski, Brett de Geus, and Jeren Kendall. These prospects will play for the Glendale Desert Dogs starting on September 18th.
Mitch White is currently the Dodgers’ number nine prospect and has been surpassed on the depth chart by pitchers such as Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, and Josiah Gray. The second-round pick from 2016 got off to a strong start in Tulsa before struggling with the OKC Dodgers. He currently sports a 6.82 ERA for Oklahoma City.
Omar Estevez was an international free agent signing in 2015 and has put together a very solid season for the Tulsa Drillers. Estevez has a triple-slash line of .294/.353./.437 and has played second base and shortstop. Omar is still only 21 years old and ranks 15th on LA’s prospect pipeline.
Gerardo Carrillo is another young international signing who will turn 21 in two weeks and has pitched all season for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. He has struggled pitching to a 5.71 ERA with control being his biggest issue this season. Gerardo has pitched better in the second half of the season. Carrillo throws in the upper 90’s and currently ranks as the 22nd prospect in the organization.

Devin Mann is a more recent pickup for the Dodgers as he was the club’s fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft. Mann has had a very strong season with Quakes launching 18 home runs with an OPS of .852. Devin has spent most of his time at second and third base and comes in at number seventeen on the Dodgers’ top prospects list.
Marshall Kasowski is one of the few true reliever prospects that the Dodgers have in their farm system. He has had a superb season for the Drillers boasting an ERA of 2.45 with 46 strikeouts in 29 plus innings. Kasowski has an over the top delivery like former Diamondback Josh Collmenter and his primary pitch is a mid 90’s fastball that is very deceptive. He comes in at number 27 on LA’s list of top prospects.
Brett de Geus has come out of nowhere to deliver a very strong season for the Loons and Quakes as a reliever. After struggling as a starter with a 7.26 ERA at Ogden last year, de Geus has responded well as a reliever with ERA’s of 2.35 and 1.24 for the Loons and Quakes. He is another hard-throwing right-hander who also throws a slider and cutter. Brett was LA’s 33rd round draft pick in 2017.
Last but not least is the Dodgers’ first-round pick from 2017, Jeren Kendall. The powerful Kendall has 19 home runs for the Quakes this season and has come on strong towards the end of the season. In August he has a slash line of .316/.419/.684 to go with seven home runs. Although he is no longer a top 30 prospect for the Dodgers, he could put himself back on the map if he carries this into the 2020 season.
