The Dodgers farm system is holding true to its reputation thus far.

Cody Bellinger, Brendon Davis and Carlos Rincon earned spots on MLB.com’s Prospect Team of The Week. Los Angeles was the best represented, with the Chicago Cubs second at two players.

Bellinger has hit .395 in 10 games. He’s blasted three homers and stolen four bases. He’s been everything the Dodgers could’ve hoped for, and may quickly force his way into the MLB lineup.

One of six teens on the the Great Lake Loons roster, Rincon leads the minors with a .900 slugging percentage, as referenced by MLB Pipeline. The 19-year-old has five homers and 11 RBI in eight games. Power is Rincon’s calling card, and so far he’s exhibiting it well.

Davis, Rincon’s teammate, is ranked No. 27 in the system, but the shortstop has slashed .444/.595/.741. He’s been an on-base machine in his first nine games for the Great Lakes Loons. Davis will certainly ascend the rankings if the performance continues.

Los Angeles has a consensus top five farm system. Even as a Bellinger-type graduates, the emergence of the Davis and Rincon’s will keep the system in the top third of the league.

Logan Forsythe returned to the starting lineup Monday
