The second half of the big league season is underway, and the Dodgers picked up right where they left off with a sweep in D.C. against the Nationals. Part of the reason the team has been catapulting up the standings is a dominant bullpen performance, helped in large part by Jose Dominguez and Chris Withrow.
Both guys will find themselves on this list for at least a couple more weeks, but if my gut instinct is proved wrong and they stay a part of the bullpen, we'll have to shake things up a bit. Either way, Dominguez and Withrow are showing that they belong.
This list's most famous alumnus, Yasiel Puig, has struggled for the past couple weeks but is still making an impact on the big league club. At some point in 2013, will we see Puig's former Double-A outfield partner join the Dodgers? Joc Pederson continues to make himself a strong case.
With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, the Dodgers could swing a few moves to bolster the team for a stretch run. Pederson, among others, has been mentioned as a potential trading chip in various rumors. However, this writer hopes the main pieces stay intact.
Let's take a look at the Dodgers top 10 prospects, as compared to last week's rankings.
