Editor’s Note: BA = Baseball America, BP = Baseball Prospectus, FG = FanGraphs, FD = Future Dodgers, ESPN = Kiley McDaniel, Law = The Athletic, MLB = MLB Pipeline, PL = Prospects Live

Just Missed (In Order): Luis Rodriguez, Andy Pages, Mitchell White, Dennis Santana, Gerardo Carrillo.

Of the just missed guys, Pages was the only one to get two Top 10 nods. He checked in at No. 8 on both the ESPN and FanGraphs lists. White was No. 8 on Law’s list and Omar Estevez was No. 10 on Future Dodgers’ list.

The composite Top 10 looks pretty solid. The top two are undisputed and unanimous, while Gray garnered the most looks at No. 3. Ruiz, despite a down year, still had enough juice to get the fourth spot. Graterol and Gonsolin were neck-and-neck for five and six. Cartaya, who could be near the top before too long, made a nice jump from last year. Busch edged out Hoese in a battle of 2019 1st-rounders, while my boy Mr. Vargas rounded out the Top 10.

Here were some individual rankings that caught my eye:

  • Gray No. 6 by BA
  • Cartaya No. 5, Graterol No. 10 by Law
  • Vargas No. 5 by BP
  • Rodriguez No. 10 by BA and Pipeline
  • Carrillo No. 10 by BP

——

Overall, the farm system is still in good shape. Depending on how service time works out for 2020, some of these guys could return to the list next year as well. If not, there should still be enough quality prospects to take the spots of guys like Lux, May, Graterol and Gonsolin.
