Dodgers News: 5 LA Prospects Land in MLB Pipeline’s New Top 100

The Dodgers once again are showing its organizational depth. In the latest update of MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects, Los Angeles has five players who made the list.

Only the Pirates and Orioles have more prospects that made the list with six. They were tied with the Brewers, Rockies, Mets, Cubs and Reds for second most prospects.

For LA, Dalton Rushing made the largest leap up the leaderboard. He sits as the 46th ranked prospect in all of baseball. In High-A this year, Rushing has shown off his ability to create runs by homering nine times and picking up 41 RBIs.

Rushing isn’t the only Dodgers catcher to make the list. Diego Cartaya comes in at 61. Cartaya has been on MLB Pipeline’s list for a while as he has made his way to Double-A.

While he is not hitting for average in Tulsa, Cartaya is showing off his 55-grade power. In 82 games he has 16 home runs and 49 RBIs. Cartaya is going to have to work on his contact skills as he makes his way through the minors. He is striking out once every three at bats.

The second highest ranked prospect in the Dodgers system has spent some time in Los Angeles already this season. Michael Busch comes in right behind Rushing at 47th on the list.

Busch made his major league debut earlier this season when the Dodgers were riddled with injuries. In 15 games with the Dodgers, he hit .200 with 16 strikeouts. Even though he has struggled at the major league level, Busch is dominating the minor leagues.

In Triple-A this season he is hitting .324/.434/.617 with 22 home runs and 75 RBIs.

Another player that made his major league debut this year also cracked the top 100. Gavin Stone made three starts with the Dodgers at the beginning of the season and did not have a good time. Right now the 86th ranked prospect has a 12.75 career ERA in the majors.

His struggles from LA have translated over to Oklahoma City in Triple-A. This season he has a 5.36 ERA in 17 starts.

The final prospect to make the list for the Dodgers is Nick Frasso. Currently in Double-A, Frasso has had an average season in Tulsa. In 19 games started, Frasso has a 4.18 ERA, but has only given up three home runs.
