10 Los Angeles Dodgers Prospects To Know Beyond The Top 30 in 2024


Baseball America’s Top 30 Los Angeles Dodgers Prospects entering 2024 are here exclusively for subscribers. The list includes updated scouting reports, BA grades and tool grade projections every player.

Inevitably, there are players every year who barely miss the cut when we narrow down the list. These players are all worth monitoring for various reasons and it’s likely some will either reach the big leagues in 2024 or enjoy breakout seasons lower in the minors.

Here are next 10 players to know in the Dodgers system beyond their Top 30.

31. Alexander Albertus, 3B

Signed out of Aruba in 2022, Albertus hit .310 with five home runs, 33 RBIs, a .939 OPS and twice as many walks (38) as strikeouts (19) across the DSL and Arizona Complex League. He’s a smart player with excellent strike-zone discipline and natural contact skills.

32. Eduardo Quintero, OF

Quintero stood out for his bat as an amateur and hit .359/.472/.618 with 27 extra-base hits in 42 games in the DSL in his pro debut. He has a sound righthanded swing and is a plus runner with the speed and athleticism to remain in center field. 

33. Christian Zazueta, RHP

Zazueta came over from the Yankees in the February 2024 deal that sent lefty Caleb Ferguson to New York. The righthander’s father, also named Christian Zazueta, has played professionally in Mexico since 2005. The younger Zazueta is big and projectable with a fastball that already has reached the mid 90s. He backs it with a potentially plus changeup, a slider that shows solid tilt and a curveball as well. 

34. Jesus Tillero, RHP

The Venezuelan righthander was one of the top pitching prospects in the 2023 international class and had a standout pro debut with a 1.47 ERA in 10 starts in the DSL. He has a mid-90s fastball with heavy life and shows good shape on his curveball for his age. 

35. Samuel Sanchez, RHP

Sanchez signed for just $17,500 in the international period that opened on Jan. 15, 2023 but has already made his mark as one of the more up-arrow prospects in the Dodgers’ class. He’s a smaller player but has athleticism, arm speed and pounds the zone with a three-pitch mix that has already taken a jump since signing. He’s got feel to spin a curveball and a firm changeup, though he pitched sparingly after turning professional.  

36. Wyatt Crowell, LHP

A fourth-round pick out of Florida State, Crowell flashed a fastball up to 95 mph and a plus-plus slider before having Tommy John surgery in April. He’s a good athlete with a two-way background and has a chance to start if his stuff returns intact.

37. Hunter Feduccia, C

Feduccia is a solid defender behind the plate with above-average blocking and receiving skills. He’s a fringy hitter with below-average power, but his defense overshadowed his offensive shortcomings enough to warrant a spot on the 40-man roster.

38. Jake Pilarski, RHP

An indy ball signing out of the Frontier League, Pilarski has a 96-99 mph fastball that touches 101, but he is still learning to harness it. He falls into a lot of deep counts and needs to improve his slider or splitter to give him another option to put hitters away.

39. Jared Karros, RHP

The son of former Dodgers first baseman Eric Karros, Jared posted a 3.44 ERA across the Class A levels in his pro debut. He effectively elevates his 92-94 mph fastball, lands his breaking ball for strikes and shows an advanced feel for pitching.

40. Zyhir Hope, OF

The Cubs drafted Hope in the 11th round but gave him a $400,000 signing bonus, equivalent to fifth-round money. He’s an athletic, 19-year-old center fielder with plus-plus speed, a quick lefthanded swing and burgeoning all-fields power, but he is prone to expanding the zone and needs refinement as a hitter. He was traded to Los Angeles as part of the deal that sent Michael Busch and Yency Almonte to the Cubs.
