Andy Pages: Late 2023
In terms of the logistics, there is a good case to be made for Andy Pages to make the big-league roster next season. The Dodgers are really thin in the outfield and Pages would give the team a fourth outfielder with power.
However, Pages is still only 21 years old and he is not even on the 40-man roster yet. While he is posting pretty promising numbers in the minors, he is still only in Double-A, and the Dodgers are going to want to develop his bat more.
It serves Pages much better if he actually can start everyday and get at-bats in OKC rather than coming up to the big-league club and being the fourth outfielder. The Dodgers are more likely to fill that outfield depth need with a free agent in the winter, with Pages likely making his MLB debut in late 2023 to get some reps with the big-league club.
Pages won’t be a full-time member of the roster until the start of the 2024 season.
That is, as long as the Dodgers do not trade him. The Dodgers do not have a lot of outfield depth in the system, especially considering first-round Jeren Kendall has been a flop, so they probably won’t trade him. However, the team already did try to trade him and would have alongside Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling if Arte Moreno had not grown impatient.
