Seven players from the Dodgers' last three drafts are slated to play for the Dodgers in their two games on Wednesday, including top prospects Corey Seager and Joc Pederson, in addition to Yasiel Puig.

The three top offensive prospects will be on display for the Dodgers on Wednesday as they split their squads for a pair of games. Corey Seager, the Dodgers' 2012 first round draft pick, will see his first spring action in a major league game as he is slated to play shortstop in reserve of Dee Gordon as the Dodgers battle Mexico at Camelback Ranch.

Joc Pederson, who has played in one Cactus League game so far this spring, will play left field in reserve of fellow top prospect Yasiel Puig in Goodyear as the Dodgers battle the Indians.

Those aren't the only kids that will be on display for the Dodgers on Wednesday. Outfielder James Baldwin III (fourth round 2010) and first baseman O'Koyea Dickson (12th round 2011) are both slated to play in reserve in Goodyear.

At Camelback Ranch against Mexico, Seager will be joined by fellow 2012 picks Jeremy Rathen (11th round) in left field and Darnell Sweeney (13th round) at second base. Scott Schebler, a 29th round pick in 2010, is slated to play right field in that game as well.
