Dodgers Prospect Michael Busch is Tearing Up Minor League Pitching

Dodgers fans got their first look at the future on Wednesday afternoon. With the team out in Pittsburgh facing the Pirates, Los Angeles tabbed Ryan Pepiot to make his big league debut. He went 3 solid innings and provided a few innings off for the bullpen during a long stretch of games. 

But there are some other names on the horizon that Dodgers fans need to look out for. One of those guys is Michael Busch. The number 3 prospect in the organization was expected to be ready for the big leagues within the next year or so. But the way he’s hitting, he could climb the ladder very quickly. 

Busch has already homered 10 times in 27 games for the Tulsa Drillers this year. He has driven in 28 runs and reached base at a .433 clip as well. Simply put, he’s tearing apart minor league pitching to start the year. The Dodgers prospect is also posting a 1.086 OPS so far. 

Ryan Pepiot’s Debut Offers Glimpse at the Future Rotation

Bullpen Absolutely Melts Down in a Series Loss to the Pirates

Granted, he’s facing off against Double-A pitching and posting those numbers. But if the Dodgers did need a bat to come off of the bench at any point this year, Busch could be a really good addition. Especially with the way that he has been hitting. 

Busch hit 20 homeruns last year for Tulsa in his age 23 season. That was across 107 games. He’s pacing out to nearly double that if he were to keep this sort of pace up. Again, it’s always hard to tell with the way minor league pitching works. But the Dodgers might have something special on their hands.
