There is a lot to be excited about if you are a Dodgers fan. Not only is the team very good right now, but they’ve set things up to be very good for the long haul. Loading the farm system with a ton of talent helps that cause.
One guy that Dodgers fans should look forward to seeing is Michael Busch. The organization’s number 3 prospect is getting a lot of attention lately and was named to the Prospect team of the Week after a few really good games.
This past week, Busch slashed .542/.581/1.167 with 3 homeruns and 14 runs driven in for the Tulsa Drillers. The young second baseman has really found his swing as of late and should be in the big leagues as soon as next year.
All told, Busch has tallied 19 homeruns and a 133 wRC+ in 100 games for the Drillers. Busch also suffered a hand injury in July after being hit by a pitch which slowed him down. Despite that, he’s still managed to put up some insane numbers.
Busch represents a class of prospects that are just on the horizon for the Dodgers. At 23-year-old, he is very close to being ready.
