Dodgers Prospects: FanGraphs Ranks Los Angeles’ Farm System Third in MLB

FanGraphs has ranked the Dodgers third in the league in terms of farm system strength.

The two teams that are ahead of them are the Tampa Bay Rays, headed by shortstop Wander Franco, and the division-rival San Diego Padres who have already graduated some of their elite prospects like Fernando Tatis Jr. and Chris Paddack.

The Dodgers were previously ranked ninth by FanGraphs lead prospect evaluators Kiley McDaniel and Eric Longenhagen.

On the Rise

With the big-time breakouts of Gavin Lux, Dustin May, and Will Smith, mixed in with emergent blue chippers Jacob Amaya, Josiah Gray, and more, there is no surprise here. The Dodgers not only boast one of the deepest teams in the majors, they also boast one of the deepest farm systems.

Winning the Draft

We have become accustomed to solid drafts under the direction of scouting director Billy Gasparino and the presence of Lux, May, and Smith near the top of the ranks is a testament to that. The additions of draftees like Kody Hoese, Ryan Pepiot, and Michael Busch, this only gets better.

International Front

Picking up guys like Keibert Ruiz, Diego Cartaya, and Dennis Santana from overseas definitely help the cause.


The Dodgers remain the class of Major League Baseball in every sense of the word.
