It’s no secret that one of the key factors as to why the Dodgers have been such a successful team in the last decade has been their farm system.
Replenishing the core year in and year out through smart drafting and developing the youth within the minors have given the Boys in Blue many prospects turned superstars over the years.
While a good problem to have, one infield prospect is suffering from the case of just too much depth at the big league level.
Since he’s been sent down to the minors after a cup of coffee in the bigs, third baseman Michael Busch has been absolutely crushing the ball in Triple-A as of late.
Talented as Busch might be, the Dodgers’ moves for infield depth and their stability at both corner infield spots leave the young lefty no place on the major league roster.
Busch, to his credit, has taken the demotion in stride by simply raking ever since last month. Now with 23 home runs on the minor league season, his OPS has skyrocketed to a ridiculous 1.054 against minor league pitching.
Despite a paltry average from Muncy, Busch simply won’t get the opportunities to show his stuff this year barring an injury to anybody in the infield.
Even as J.D. Martinez struggles through nicks and bruises to his lower body, the Dodgers confusingly seem reluctant to get their talented rookie on the field again.
