Dodgers Prospect Keibert Ruiz Earns AFL Award Honors

Dodgers

Dodgers young catching prospect Keibert Ruiz has climbed his way through the Dodgers farm system. At just twenty years old, Ruiz has shown what he is capable of in just four seasons of work. Ruiz is listed as the Dodgers #2 overall prospect in the organization behind Alex Verdugo.

Keibert Ruiz was given the opportunity to take part in the Arizona Fall League following his 2018 season with the Tulsa Drillers. In Double-A, Ruiz hit .268 along with 47 RBI’s and 12 home runs. Ruiz headed out to Arizona in October and played well. He appeared in just 13 games, but finished with a .286 batting average, 6 walks, and 6 RBI’s, as well as reaching base a total of 15 times.

Ruiz has a unique batting stance. Most notably, you can tell how much power he produces from his lower body.

Keibert Ruiz was named to Arizona Fall League’s 2018 Top Prospects team. Along with Ruiz were other great young prospects such as Vlad Guerrero Jr. (Blue Jays #1 prospect), Peter Alonso (Mets #2 prospect), and many others. Already making a name for himself in the Dodgers organization, expect Ruiz to be on the big league level in just a few short years or less.
