Some good news amidst a quite disappointing 2022 season is that the younger guys in the farm system show much promise for the future of the Dodgers.
Andrew Friedman has already hinted at the possibility of the team bringing up a few minor league players and giving them a shot at the major leagues for the upcoming season. Among the conversation was Andy Pages, a 21-year-old outfielder who impressed during his time in Double-AA.
This past year, Pages had 115 hits, 26 homers of which were homers and added 27 doubles while batting .236/.339/.472 with 80 RBIs in his first season with the Tulsa Drillers.
This weekend, he had the opportunity to represent the Dodgers in the 2022 Fall-Stars game where he made this impressive catch:

The Dodgers signed Pages for $300k upon leaving Cuba in October of 2017. Since then, he’s grown into one of the best prospects in the Dodgers’ farm system and overall No. 69 in MLB Pipeline’s Top 100 Prospects. He is joined by six other LA prospects including Diego Cartaya, Bobby Miller, Michael Busch, Miguel Vargas, and Ryan Pepiot.
Although Pages hasn’t played in OKC at the triple-A level yet, he has shown that he’s not that far off from making his major league debut soon. We could probably expect him to join Mookie Betts and maybe James Outman in the outfield for the 2024 season and beyond.
The future of Dodger baseball is promising and although many longtime LA players might be out the door this offseason, fans can have hope that the younger generation is still working hard for their big moment in the big leagues.
