Los Angeles Dodgers: Full Overview of Dodgers Farm System and Prospects for 2013
Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports
Yasiel Puig was one of the top Cuban players available last year. The Dodgers paid him like he will be a superstar. Are they right?

The times are indeed changing for the Los Angeles Dodgers

After seeing the once-proud franchise rot under the ownership of Frank McCourt, the Dodgers find themselves in the enviable position of having a new pack of owners with deep pockets who are willing to spend at all costs to bring a championship back to Los Angeles. 

However, as great as it is on paper to see a team spending a lot of money, baseball fans know all too well that just because you hand out cash like it's going out of style doesn't guarantee you anything. 

All of the moves that have been made in the last nine or so months have certainly upgraded the big-league team, and the Dodgers are in a good position to compete for a playoff spot. 

The farm system is still pitching heavy, especially at the top. The team did try to bring in some high-upside position players by signing Cuban defector Yasiel Puig to a huge contract and drafting Corey Seager in the first round of last year's draft. 

The Dodgers' focus in 2013 certainly won't be on the farm system, partly because of all the money spent on the big-league team and partly because the impact players are in the lower levels of the minors, but there is talent to be found. 

Here is a full look at the Dodgers' system heading into 2013, as well as a look at the top prospects, a breakout prospect to watch and a prospect who could make an impact in the big leagues.
