I'll spare you the drawn-out chili pepper heat reference to point out how well the Dodgers are playing this week. But it remains largely due to former list-topper Yasiel Puig that the Dodgers are creeping up on the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West.
Chris Withrow and Jose Dominguez remain in the majors (for now), and the farm system avoided a major hit when the Dodgers acquired Ricky Nolasco from Miami for three prospects who aren't considered "top tier."
So after weeks of coming so close, Steve Ames will never be promoted to the top-10 list. He's now a member of the Miami Marlins and is said to be getting moved straight to the bigs, so good luck to him. Along with Ames, the Dodgers traded pitchers Angel Sanchez and Josh Wall for Nolasco and international money.
The trade doesn't really shake up the list too much, but if anyone thought they had a chance at catching the reigning No. 1 prospect, think again. He had a fantastic week and keeps making a case for promotion. Let's check out how the guys did as compared to last week's list.
