The Dodgers have a ton of talent at the minor league level nearing the big leagues. That has been a recurring theme every year since the new ownership group has taken over. This year is once again no different, and you don’t need to look very deep to find a guy just on the horizon.
One guy that could crack the big league squad as soon as this year is Ryan Pepiot. The Dodgers’ number 6 prospect is off to an incredible start with Oklahoma City, and he was just named the Pacific Coast League Pitcher of the Month.
Pepiot has appeared in 5 games so far, allowing 4 earned runs across 21.2 innings of work. He has struck out 29 batters for the OKC Dodgers and put together a 2-0 record to go with a 1.66 ERA. If the big league club finds a need for an arm, he could end up being one of their first big call-ups of 2022. He just cracked MLB’s Top 100 prospect list last month.
In addition to Pepiot, the Dodgers also had outfielder Damon Keith named as the California League player of the month. Keith slashed .391/.519/.672 in the month of April with 10 extra-base hits, including 3 homeruns. He led the California League in several offensive categories along the way, including hits and runs scored.
