Since the Dodgers are not shy at promoting players, you would expect their minor league system to take a hit eventually. Yet, every year, it’s one of baseball’s strongest systems. This year it’s no exception.
Diego Cartaya is rounding into form and will be an offensive force. He can hit with plus power potential. Bobby Miller also rounds into form and has the arsenal to pitch at the top of the rotation. Miguel Vargas is also nearly ready and has plus power and a feel to hit. Want more…Gavin Stone was one of the best pitchers in the minor leagues last season, and it looks like he could be a number two starter. Andy Pages has enormous raw power and looks like he will hit enough to get to it. It goes on and on.
The Dodgers are playing a different game than the rest of the league. They have one of the best player development organizations and the finances to play the free-agent game. They are the alpha dog, and everyone is chasing them.
