In past years, the Los Angeles Dodgers boasted one of the best farm systems in all of baseball and under the new ownership group, they’ve tried to revamp the minor league system.
Prospects Joc Pederson, Corey Seager, Zach Lee, Julio Urias and others have Dodger fans excited for future years as all have a real chance of getting to the big league level shortly. Seager and reliever Yimi Garcia are participating in the Arizona Fall League while Pederson is playing in the Venezuelan winter league.
Seager is turning heads in Arizona despite a poor showing statistically. In 10 games, Seager is hitting just .164 with four RBI, but has struck out 12 times in just 37 at-bats. His name has been mentioned in trade talks for Rays ace David Price, but many believe he could make the jump to the big league level by 2015 as a third baseman.
Meanwhile, Garcia spent the entire 2013 season at Double A Chattanooga and made 49 appearances as a reliever. He went 4-6 with a 2.54 ERA, but struck out 85 in just 60.1 innings pitched. With the Glendale Desert Dogs, Garcia has a 0.00 ERA in five appearances, striking out five in 6.2 innings pitched.
