The Dodgers have a lot of talent coming up through their system. Over the next couple of years, fans will get the chance to see a lot of those guys get their chance. But one of them will almost certainly be Diego Cartaya.
The Dodgers’ top prospect is just 20-years-old and well on his way to the big leagues. This year, he has 6 homeruns in just 73 at-bats for Rancho, seemingly adding a lot of pop in the offseason. At this rate, he’s destined for the show very soon.
But this week, he got a pretty cool moment. Padres starter Blake Snell was pitching for Lake Elsinore in a rehab game. The Dodgers prospect got a pitch to hit and absolutely made him pay. Cartaya parked one deep into left for his 6th homer of the year.
