2015 top 20 Dodgers prospect list
Here is the list of the top 20 Dodgers prospects for 2015, as ranked and profiled by David Hood.
March 5, 2015
No. 1 prospect, Corey Seager
After winning California League MVP honors with only 80 games in Class-A Rancho Cucamonga, shortstop Corey Seager continued to excel in Double-A. He reins as the top Dodgers prospect in 2015 and one of the top prospects in baseball.
February 25, 2015
No. 2 prospect, Julio Urias
The most intriguing prospect in all of baseball, 18-year-old Julio Urias, ranks second among Dodgers prospects heading into 2015. He'll be in Double-A to open the year but he'll be in Los Angeles very soon, perhaps even this season.
February 20, 2015
No. 3 prospect, Joc Pederson
After a pair of stellar minor league seasons, including the first 30-30 year in the Pacific Coast League in 80 years, Joc Pederson ranks third on our Dodgers prospect list for 2015, and could end up the starting center fielder in LA on opening day.
February 12, 2015
No. 4 prospect, Grant Holmes
High school right-hander Grant Holmes was drafted by the Dodgers in the first round of the 2014 draft, and thrust himself near the very top of a top-heavy farm system. Holmes is our fourth-ranked Dodgers prospect for 2015.
February 4, 2015
No. 20 prospect, Joe Wieland
Acquired from the Padres in December in the Matt Kemp trade, right-handed pitcher Joe Wieland provides the Dodgers with depth for the starting rotation, and someone with options who can be stashed in Triple-A.
February 2, 2015
No. 5 prospect, Chris Reed
After nearly three full years in Double-A, left-handed pitcher Chris Reed made his way to Triple-A to end 2014. The 2011 first-round pick faces a big year in 2015, determining whether his future is as a starter or reliever.
January 28, 2015
No. 6 prospect, Scott Schebler
A late-round pick in 2010, outfielder Scott Schebler has hit his way into relevance up the ranks in the Dodgers system and now, on the 40-man roster, ranks sixth on our 2015 Dodgers prospects list.
January 24, 2015
No. 7 prospect, Zach Lee
Our seventh-ranked Dodgers prospect for 2015 is right-handed pitcher Zach Lee, looking to rebound after a rough year in 2014.
January 21, 2015
No. 8 prospect, Chris Anderson
Dodgers 2013 first-round draft pick Chris Anderson, a big right-handed pitcher, held his own in the California League in 2014, and enters 2015 as our eighth-ranked prospect in the organization.
January 16, 2015
No. 9 prospect, Alex Verdugo
Alex Verdugo, the two-way player selected by the Dodgers in the second round of the 2014 draft, has enjoyed success as a position player as a professional. The outfielder ranks ninth in our list of top Dodgers prospects in 2015.
January 14, 2015
No. 10 prospect, Ross Stripling
Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling missed all of 2014 after Tommy John surgery, but his upside remains appealing heading into 2015, either as a starter or in relief. Stripling checks in as our No. 10 Dodgers prospect for 2015.
January 9, 2015
No. 11 prospect, Austin Barnes
Up next on our Dodgers top prospects list is No. 11 Austin Barnes, a catcher received from the Marlins in the Dee Gordon trade, and one versatile enough to also play second and third base.
January 6, 2015
No. 12 prospect, Pedro Baez
Former third baseman turned pitcher Pedro Baez made his major league debut in 2014 with the Dodgers, and maintains rookie status heading into 2015. Baez is our 12th-ranked prospect in the organization this year.
January 2, 2015
No. 13 prospect, Zach Bird
Up next on the countdown of top Dodgers prospects is right-handed pitcher Zach Bird at No. 13. Bird, who was drafted in the ninth round in 2012, struck out 110 in 118⅔ innings with Class-A Great Lakes in 2014.
December 23, 2014
No. 14 prospect, Darnell Sweeney
Darnell Sweeney played all over the diamond up the middle in 2014 and hit his way back into prospect relevance. He ranks 14th among Dodgers prospects heading into 2015.
December 18, 2014
No. 15 prospect, Cody Bellinger
The Dodgers drafted Cody Bellinger in the first round of the 2013 draft. Now, the 19-year-old first baseman seems primed to take the next step, with full-season baseball ahead in 2015.
December 15, 2014
No. 16 prospect, Daniel Coulombe
The Dodgers' top 20 prospects list for 2015 continues with left-handed relief pitcher Daniel Coulombe, who made his way to the majors in 2014.
December 10, 2014
No. 17 prospect, Jeff Brigham
Up next on the Dodgers top prospects for 2015 is No. 17, right-handed pitcher Jeff Brigham, drafted in the fourth round 2014 out of the University of Washington.
December 5, 2014
No. 18 prospect, Brandon Dixon
Up next in the Dodgers' top prospects for 2015 is second baseman Brandon Dixon, who showed offensive potential in 2014 but needs to improve on plate discipline to make a future impact.
December 3, 2014
No. 19 prospect: A.J. Vanegas
David Hood's rankings of Dodgers prospects starts with No. 19 A.J. Vanegas, a left-handed pitcher drafted in 2014 in the 11th round out of Stanford.
December 2, 2014
No. 21 prospect: Erisbel Arruebarrena
A late addition to the 2015 Dodgers prospect rankings (thanks to the trade of Jose Dominguez) is shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena, who made his major league debut in 2014 with the Dodgers.
