The Dodgers will start reporting to Glendale, Arizona in just about 2 weeks. They will kick off their Spring Training games on February 27th as they start their campaign to defend their World Series championship.
Part of the prep for Spring Training includes figuring out which players not on the 40-man roster will get invited to camps. The Dodgers will undoubtedly pick through their list of prospects and send out invitations to have them in the big league camps in a few weeks. One of those guys will be Jacob Amaya, per J.P. Hoornstra.
Amaya is the Dodgers number 10 overall prospect entering the 2021 season. At 22-years-old, many expect that he is just one year away from being added to the Major League roster. Amaya has impressed at all levels since he was drafted out of West Covina High School in 2017.
During the 2019 minor league season, Amaya spent his time split between A-ball and High-A Rancho Cucamonga. At Rancho, he slashed .250/.307/.375 in 21 games. The Dodgers have praised his ability to command the strike zone and overall approach at the plate. A solid defender at shortstop, he has plus potential over at second base.
