The modern day Dodgers have become an elite organization in churning out prospects, but that hasn’t always been the case.

Cody Bellinger, Walker Buehler, Joc Pederson, Corey Seager, Gavin Lux, the list goes on. The Los Angeles Dodgers have done an amazing job developing young talent in their farm system, which has given them the financial flexibility to add players like Mookie Betts when they become available.

However, like every organization, the Dodgers have had their misses over the years, particularly in the early 2000s. This article will look at the three biggest busts since the turn of the century.

In evaluating which players made the list, I used memory, which formed a baseline of prospects who immediately stuck out in my head as busts, as well as well as research into which players ranked relatively the high on national prospect lists and failed to live up to the hype.

Grab a stiff drink and let’s take a look at the list.
