These are my Prospect One top 10 prospects for the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. You can find all teams organizational ranks, which go beyond the top 10, plus my top 500 prospect ranks which are updated monthly when you join up at the ITL ARMY. Find the link below.
Check out the NL West Top 10 Team Prospects podcast when Scott Bogman interviews me on my thoughts on these players plus a look beyond the top 10 for some teams.

1) Walker Buehler SP
I am aggressive with Buehler. Mid to high 90’s FB, plus curve, slider and changeup with good command sets him up to potentially be a SP2 in fantasy in the future. He’s a bit smaller, reminds me of Tim Lincecum a bit, but as aggressive on the mound, and should rack up strikeouts. He’s two years removed from TJ, and looks to be lining up as a front line starter with the Dodgers soon.
2) Alex Verdugo OF
I’ll be honest I haven’t been as much of a fan of Verdugo as most people. There is no denying the skill set though. He hits for a high average even if he gets aggressive, and walked more than he struck out in the minors in ‘17. He’s not a big counting stats guy though, which makes me question the role he fits on a team. He could be a number two hitter which I think could benefit him, but I don’t see him being above average in HR or SB. I could be wrong, but either way he deserves attention.
3) Keibert Ruiz C
This is where you look, when looking for your top fantasy catcher. Ruiz has never hit for under .300 at any stop in his entire minor league career, dating back to 2015. He’s got a short compact swing which generates power. I am reminded of a smaller Salvador Perez when I watch Ruiz. He is one if not the only catcher to make my top 100 list for fantasy.

4) DJ Peters OF
Peters famously hit two home runs off Madison Bumgarner in a rehab game in ‘17. Peters is huge. Standing next to him in the AFL is where I got a true sense of his size. Peters strikes out a lot. I’m not sure much of that ever changes. His raw power is impressive though. I was at a game when he took Braves Max Fried deep and it just vanished. I get a Jayson Werth vibe with Peters. Despite his AVG and strikeout troubles, I want to own him for his 30+ HR potential.

5) Starling Heredia OF
Heredia is one of those athletes when you see him in person, and then see what he does on the field, it almost doesn’t add up. He’s a big dude who tore up rookie ball when I saw him, only to struggle at A-ball. Heredia is a solid athlete who might surprise with some SB, but I do think that will end up going to the waist side (no pun intended). He shows nature instincts at the plate and could hit for high AVG and power.
