Jordan Sheffield RP

Sheffield is the Dodgers’ 26th ranked prospect according to MLB pipeline and might be their best relief prospect in the minor leagues.  After limiting the Cal League to a .109 average, Sheffield moved up to AA Tulsa and held the opposition to a .193 average against.  He converted 13 of his 16 save opportunities between both stops.

Cody Thomas OF

Thomas is another prospect outside of LA’s top 30 but he has intriguing power potential since his 2018 season at Rancho Cucamonga where he slugged 19 homers with a .497 slugging percentage.  This year, Thomas was with Tulsa the entire season and slugged 23 home runs although he hit just .236.

Carlos Rincon OF

Rincon also finds himself out of the top thirty prospects in the Dodgers’ organization and is another all or nothing type hitter.  He slugged 16 homers between Rancho Cucamonga and Tulsa this season after crossing the 20 home run plateau in the previous two seasons.

Parker Curry SP

Curry was an undrafted free agent out of Samford for the Dodgers in 2016.  He appeared in 24 games for the Drillers this season including 13 starts and posted an ERA of 3.67.  He throws in the low 90’s and projects to be a middle reliever.
