The Dodgers officially signed all of their picks from this year’s five round-draft this week. That led fans to wonder whether or not they would be adding these recent picks to their player pool rather than wasting a year. We finally got our answer on that today.
On Friday afternoon, the Dodgers added seven players to their player pool, all non-rostered players. Michael Busch, Anthony Garcia, Landon Knack, Bobby Miller, Ryan Pepiot, Edubray Ramos and Carson Taylor have all received an invitation to Summer Camps.
Knack, Miller, and Taylor were all picks from this year’s draft with Miller being their first pick. Jake Vogel, a third-round draft pick, was added to the player pool earlier this week after signing his deal. Second-round pick Clayton Beeter was also added to the player pool earlier this week after his deal was confirmed.
With that, the Dodgers have officially added their first five draft picks this year to the 60-man player pool. Michael Busch was Los Angeles’ first-round pick in 2019 out of North Carolina. Ryan Pepiot was a third-round pick out of Butler in 2019. Anthony Garcia and Edubray Ramos both signed minor league deals with the team this past offseason and each made a few Spring Training appearances.
The move couldn’t come soon enough for the Dodgers, as they still have a few guys missing from their big league camp. It’s unclear which camp these guys will report to at this time, but Miller was seen at Dodger Stadium this week.
