Baseball America: 2014 Los Angeles Dodgers Top 10 Prospects

Spykstra cards going once, twice…


1. Joc Pederson, of
2. Corey Seager, ss
3. Julio Urias, lhp
4. Zach Lee, rhp
5. Chris Anderson, rhp
6. Chris Withrow, rhp
7. Alexander Guerrero, 2b
8. Chris Reed, lhp
9. Onelki Garcia, lhp
10. Ross Stripling, rhp

Their most recent big-ticket international signing—Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero, who signed for four years and $28 million—went against the grain, as teams had several opportunities to evaluate him at showcases in the Dominican Republic and came away skeptical of his chances to be an everyday player.

The Dodgers have four more prospects at the top of their farm system who have separated themselves from the pack. The organization has more outfielders than spots to put them all, and that’s before considering that No. 1 prospect Joc Pederson should be ready at some point in 2014. Corey Seager, a shortstop and likely future third baseman, showed a polished hitting approach and a sweet swing in his first full season at age 19. Pederson and Seager both have star potential.

Julio Urias, purchased from the Mexico City Red Devils in 2012, pitched effectively in the low Class A Midwest League as a 16-year-old, and opposing scouts thought he could have handled even more advanced hitters. Zach Lee pitched well in Double-A and could contribute in 2014, with mid-rotation starter upside.
