Outfielder Joc Pederson, the 2014 Pacific Coast League MVP and who has a chance to win the starting center-field job this season, is ranked No. 11 by McDaniel:

Pederson has average to above average tools across the board, with only his raw power showing plus, though that’s with effort in batting practice. He can play a solid center field for now, but likely settles as a right fielder when he matures.

The final Dodger prospect to make the top-100 is right-handed pitcher Grant Holmes, who came in at No. 89. The 18-year-old was the Dodgers’ first round draft pick in 2014 out of Conway, South Carolina:

Holmes may have been my favorite prep pitcher in last year’s draft. He’s only 6-foot tall and has no physical projection remaining, but he’s strong, has feel to pitch and has knockout #2 starter stuff. Holmes hit 100 mph early in the spring but more commonly sits 92-94, hitting 96 mph with an easy plus curveball and changeup that flashes above average.

The final two Dodgers who appear lower on the list are right-handed pitcher Chris Anderson and outfielder Alex Verdugo. Anderson was a first-round pick in 2013 out of Jacksonville University and Verdugo was a second-round pick in 2014 out of Sahuaro High School Tuscon, Arizona.
