Dodgers Top Prospects

Mitchell White (8), Dustin May (3), Gavin Lux (4) and Will Smith (5) highlight the list of top-30 prospects from the Dodgers system.

Other intriguing names

Everyone will look at this list and try to spot the next Max Muncy from this list. While you might want to look at Edwin Rios as a sleeper candidate to make an impact in that regard, he was already added to the roster this offseason (along with top catching prospect Keibert Ruiz, for those wondering).

However, from the NRI list, Will Smith is likely to get the most playing time. Dodger brass is highly invested to see what Smith can do with the MLB pitching staff, and will give him a long leash to prove himself worthy of a potential Opening Day roster spot.

Additionally, keep an eye on right-handed pitching prospect Tony Gonsolin early on in camp.

    • Hello Robin, DJ Peters is a RH batter. But correct in that he has been a swing and miss go for fences hitter, and that reminds me of the mid 90’s when a guy named Billy Ashley was exactly that . Ashley was about as one dimensional of a player as anyone could ever be.

      • PaulDodgerFan1965, I’m old enough to remember Billy Ashley, lol. Actually I’m hoping DJ Peters is more like Jayson Werth, because of his physical looks(long hair, etc.) and that the Dodgers hold on to him and Not trade him a la Werth.
