Dodger Prospect Rankings
With Baseball America putting out their top ten Dodger prospect list for 2017 we now have enough lists to put out a prospect table. I would have liked to include TrueBlueLA prospect writer David Hood but he is spreading his list out and is only down to 13. I’ll add his ranking when he’s finished.
For now, I have four lists.
- MLB.com by Jim Callis goes 30 deep – MLB
- Baseball America goes 10 deep – BA
- Fangraphs goes 21 deep – FG
- Rotowire goes 10 deep – RW
Cody Bellinger is ranked number one by MLB.COM, Baseball America, and Rotowire. Fangraphs went with Yadier Alvarez as their number one.
Dodger number one prospects have made quite a splash over the past four years.
- 2013 – Ryu
- 2014 – Joc Pederson
- 2015 – Corey Seager
- 2016 – Julio Urias
Bellinger doesn’t have a clear path to playing time so it hard to see him having an impact in 2017 but stranger things have happened. I’d expect that Andrew Toles/Jose DeLeon/Brock Stewart have the clearest path to having an impact on the 2017 season.
Andrew Toles is a special case all over this table. MLB barely ranked him in their top 30, but the other three lists all have him in the top ten where he belongs.
Walker Buehler made every top ten except Baseball America.
DJ Peters got a shoutout from Rotowire for their top ten, as did teenager Starling Heredia.
Newly signed Jose Miguel Fernandez would qualify for these lists but was just signed last week. In the Baseball America prospect chat, they said he would rank in the top ten. This chat is great, I’d suggest anyone interested in the prospects to give it a read.
