MLB Top 100 Prospects – Five Dodgers crack the list

The top 100 MLB prospect list

The Dodgers:

  • 13  – Cody Bellinger
  • 49 – Yadier Alvarez
  • 61 – Alex Verdugo
  • 82 – Willie Calhoun
  • 93 – Walker Buehler

Dodger Prospects traded in the past year:

  • 33  – Jose De Leon – Tampa Bay via Logan Forsythe trade
  • 85 – Grant Holmes – Oakland via Rich Hill trade

Notes:

Cody Bellinger went from not being on the list at all to being ranked number 13. That was the biggest leap of any prospect.

Bellinger is noted as having the most power

Bellinger was also made the all -defensive prospect pipeline team

First Base: Cody Bellinger, Dodgers
Not only is Bellinger the best power-hitting prospect in baseball, but he’s one of the top defensive first basemen to come through the Minors in years. He moves well around the bag, scoops throws out of the dirt, owns solid arm strength — and as a bonus, he can play all three outfield positions if needed.

“I realize first base isn’t a premium position, but he has the potential to be one of the best defenders I’ve seen at the position,” a special assistant with a National League team said. “Add in the fact he’s a very capable outfielder, and he gets my vote.”

Delvin Perez made number 91. The Dodgers had a chance to draft Delvin when he was dropping in the draft but they elected to go with a different shortstop in Gavin Lux.

Last year Corey Seager was number one, this year it is  Andrew Benintendi, OF, Red Sox
