The Los Angeles Dodgers have been a model organization for years now and continue to be the standard from a scouting and player development standpoint.
Despite being being an elite market that spends on their roster, the homegrown talent that has littered playoff team after playoff team in Los Angeles has been key. From Clayton Kershaw to Julio Urias, Dustin May, and Will Smith, it’s still a big-league roster with in-house pillars.
That isn’t likely to change anytime soon, either. The Dodgers have yet another wave of big talent on the way.
Ages as of July 1, 2023
Cartaya does everything well except run, led by elite on-base skills and 20-plus home run power.
Stone’s fastball isn’t overpowering but it’s a good enough offering to set up one of the best changeups in the minors.
Three above-average or better pitches suggest the right-hander’s arrival in the majors sooner than later.
It may not be a traditional corner profile, but above-average hit and power suggest a chance to play regularly.
Nastrini touches the mid-90s and has three average secondaries, but has to throw more strikes.
Big power and a chance to hit relieve some pressure on Rushing’s future defensive position. The raw power here is comfortably plus.
Busch has plenty of offensive ability to stick in the majors if he can stay on the dirt.
Pepiot has a big-time fastball-changeup combo, giving him a shot to miss bats and pitch in multiple roles.
There’s some questions about Pages’ shot to hit, but he’s drawn walks and hit for power through Double-A.
Outman is a very good athlete with plus speed and a chance to hit 15-20 homers and post good OBPs.
