I was going to say this is the latest this post has ever come out since starting it in 2018, but last year’s version came out on May 11, so, yeah. I’m not sure what that has to do with anything, I just didn’t feel like being particularly creative in this lede.

While he wasn’t unanimous, Cartaya is the Dodgers’ top prospect, according to most. Kid is gonna be a stud.

Miller has cemented himself as the best pitching prospect in the system and could debut sometime in 2022.

Busch and Pages benefit from FanGraphs ranking Vargas at No. 10 in the system. Aside from Leonard, that was one of the biggest spreads in terms of rankings among the Top 10.

Pepiot is the last guy in the upper-tier of prospects, thanks in part to a high ranking from ESPN.

Bruns’ ranking by FanGraphs seems a bit influenced by recent looks, as Baseball Prospectus was the only other publication to rank him inside the Top 10.

——

The player who received the highest ranking who didn’t make the Top 15 is Rayne Doncon. He checked in at No. 8 on FanGraphs’ list, and he’s a guy with tons of upside and helium. He could be consistently in the Top 10 come 2023.

Be sure to keep tabs on these guys (and others) this season. A great way to do that is to check in on Josh’s (almost) daily Prospect Notes posts. They’re full of great information and moving pictures. 10/10, would recommend.
