The Dodgers will send seven players to the Arizona Fall League next week, including the club’s top two draft picks in 2020. Games begin Wednesday and will end with the championship game, November 20.
Playing their games at the Dodgers spring training facilities, all Dodger prospects will play for the Glendale Desert Dogs.
Pitchers Bobby Miller (first round) and Landon Knack (second round) made strong debuts in their first pro seasons after being drafted in 2020. The pair started at High-A Great Lakes and were both promoted to Double-A Tulsa by season’s end.
Miller, the No. 4 prospect in the Dodger organization, pitched in 17 games (14 starts) combined to go 2-2 with a 2.40 ERA in 56.1 innings, striking out 70 against just 13 walks. Knack, the Dodgers No. 8 prospect, pitched in 16 games (11 starts) combined to go 7-1 with a 3.18 ERA in 62.1 innings, striking out 82 while only walking eight.
Joining Miller and Knack in Glendale will be third baseman Kody Hoese (No. 13), shortstop Jacob Amaya (No. 14), outfielder James Outman (No. 27) and pitchers Jeff Belge and Kyle Hurt.
