The Dodgers prospect list got a major shake-up this week at the trade deadline. With several big pieces moving out of the Top 30, there have been opportunities for guys to move up in the system and get a new opportunity.
Andy Pages made the jump up to number 6 on the Dodgers prospect list following their flurry of trades. Pages has spent the year playing for High-A Great Lakes at the age of just 20. And following a year in which he did not play organized ball due to COVID-19, Pages has been crushing.
In fact, he was named to the MiLB Prospect Team of the Week after a wild couple of games for the Dodgers farm club. He slashed .435/.500/.913 with 3 homeruns and a total of 5 extra-base hits in 23 at-bats. He drove in 9 runs and now has 21 homers. That places him second the High-A Central for longballs.

Funny enough, Pages was one of the guys that was supposed to go to the Angels in the Joc Pederson and Ross Stripling trade of 2020. That fell through when the Angels grew tired of the Dodgers waiting out the Mookie Betts trade. So they got to keep a guy with a ton of upside potential.
Pages profiles as a guy with a ton of power he continues to mature physically, and his arm is one of the best outfield arms in the Dodgers system. It is currently anticipated that he will be big-league ready right around 2023.
