2022 Los Angeles Dodgers Top MLB Prospects
The Dodgers have been a beacon of stability in major league baseball for nearly a decade. Entering the 2022 season, that status is somewhat tenuous.
The Dodgers won 106 games last season and reached the National League Championship Series, where they fell to the eventual champion Braves in six games. It was the Dodgers’ third time winning at least 100 games in the last four full seasons, and they have either won the World Series or lost to the eventual champion each of the last five years.
Now, the Dodgers face the daunting challenge of continuing that success without some of the cornerstones who made it possible. Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen are free agents, Corey Seager left to sign with the Rangers and midseason acquisition Max Scherzer signed with the Mets.
Still, the Dodgers have one of the most talented rosters in the majors and a farm system that has long churned out impact players.
Today, we unveil the 10 best prospects in the Dodgers system as it enters 2022.
