Keith Law of ESPN was the latest to release a midseason top prospect list, and Corey Seager was the only Dodger to be named to Law's top 50. The 19-year-old shortstop was ranked the No. 16 prospect in baseball by Law, up 30 spots from his preseason rank.
Seager, who missed time in June with a hamstring strain, is hitting .306/.394/.502 with eight home runs and 13 doubles in 61 games. Law thinks Seager will eventually move off shortstop, but is impressed with the entire package.
"He's going to be big -- at 6-4, 215 pounds, he's already bigger than every full-time shortstop in MLB history -- but that's going to produce plus power that makes him a potential All-Star," Law wrote.
No other Dodgers made the top 50, but pitchers Zach Lee and Julio Urias were among the eight prospects to given honorable mention by Law.
Here is a look at the Dodgers to appear on the midseason prospect lists from Law, John Sickels of Minor League Ball, Baseball America and Jason Parks of Baseball Prospectus. Seager is the only Dodger to rank in the top 50 on three different lists.
