Rank/Overall Name Position
Excelled in Double-A last year smacking a robust .345 average over 38 games and finished the year as the youngest player in the Fall League. His calling-card is his hitting, the dude can flat out rake. It’s his position that will be the decision as he is larger than most Short stops in the bigs.
2/14 Julio Urias LHP
Mature, Composed and knows how to pitch. Hands-down one of the most impressive pitchers in all of baseball. Urias dominated the CAL League as the youngest pitcher in the league and is expected to debut in Double-A in 2015 at a ripe ole age of 18. Former Dodgers Scouting Director Logan White thinks he’s “got the ability to pitch in the big leagues at 18”
3/15 Joc Pederson OF
Has been overcoming doubters since 2010 and has really developed in a true five-tool potential player. With the departure of Matt Kemp, Joc’s expected to make the opening day roster. A guy who draws walks, steals bases and can hit for power and average is a rare commodity
4/100 Grant Holmes RHP
The first round pick from the 2014 draft has plenty of arm strength and his velocity to scare anyone. Routinely hits 97+ and with his above average breaking ball, Holmes could be a fast riser through the system.
5 Chris Anderson RHP
Another powerful arm in the Dodgers system, Anderson has all the making of a #2 starter, from his size, to his command and composure. He will look to continue to refine his breaking pitches and command in Double-A this year.
6 Chris Reed LHP
Reed took a beating in the PCL last year but that certainly did not take away from his overall make-up. He throws 94+ from the left side and average slider, he has the makings of a quality reliever in the bigs however the Dodgers have continued to groom his as a starter. Should be interesting to see what they choose do with him in 2015.
7 Zach Lee RHP
A first-round pick from the 2010 draft has been continuing to improve as he climbs the minor league ladder. Lee shows four average of better pitches when his stuff is on. A return trip to AAA is in store for Lee as he looks to iron out the command issues that plagued him in 2014.
8 Scott Schebler OF
With a minor league system as loaded as the Dodgers, it’s says a lot when you get named the teams Minor League Player of the Year as he did in 2013. With his above-average bat speed and a whole lot of thump, he could be knocking on the door for a September callup in 2015. 28 homers in the Southern League in 2014 is no joke.
9 Alex Verdugo OF
A second-round pick from the 2014 draft, the Dodgers choose to draft him as an Outfielder rather than a pitcher which most teams envisioned as his role. He showed great patience and extra-base power during his brief display last year. The Dodgers might be aggressive and send him straight to the CAL League to see what he is made of.
10 Jose De Leon RHP
Mark our words, look out for Jose De Leon. He was named the 2014 pitcher of the year for the Pioneer League as he posted video-game like numbers; 2.65ERA, 77K 19BB in just 54.1IP. He was promoted late in the season to LOW-A, then promptly followed up his performance at Great Falls with 42K 2BB and a 1.19ERA over 22.2 innings. A strikeout machine should be pushed to the CAL League in 2015.
