DJ Peters OF

DJ Peters introduced himself to the baseball world when he mashed multiple home runs off of Madison Bumgarner when MadBum was working his way back from his notorious dirt bike incident.  Peters is the Dodgers’ 12th ranked prospect according to MLB Pipeline. He split his 2019 season between Tulsa and Oklahoma City while combining to hit 23 home runs.

Errol Robinson SS

Robinson was once ranked in the Dodgers’ top 30 prospects but has fallen off since.  He is a glove-first shortstop who split his 2019 season between Oklahoma City and Tulsa.  He struggled with the bat at the AAA level but had better results in AA posting a .310/.390/.400 slash line with the Drillers.

Mitchell White SP

White has seen his stock fall in recent seasons due to injuries and poor performance that has resulted from those injuries.  He is still ranked as the Dodgers’ 9th best prospect which is a testament to his ability. Mitch dominated at the AA level holding batters to a .165 average in seven starts but struggled mightily in AAA, pitching to an ERA of 6.50.

Zach McKinstry 2B

McKinstry is also outside of LA’s top 30 prospects but he had a very strong season.  In 95 games with the Drillers, he posted a solid .279/.352/.455 slash line.  Then he moved up to OKC and looked like the second coming of Gavin Lux in 26 games as he mashed seven home runs with a slugging percentage of .753.
