There is no hotter team in baseball right now than your Los Angeles Dodgers.
Yasiel Puig and Chris Withrow, both prospects earlier this season, have played big roles in the team going from last place and 9.5 games back on June 22 to a first-place lead of 5.5 games by the end of play on Sunday.
Of course, the big news in the minor league ranks was Corey Seager's promotion to High-A after a blistering pace in the second half of the season had boosted his average to over .300. After Withrow dominated out of the Dodgers' bullpen again on Sunday, he's officially off my list of "prospects," based on MLB service time.
So the rankings will look a bit different this week, but some fresh names can't hurt. Will we see any of the top players on this list getting a chance to play for the big league club or at least getting a promotion like Seager? We'll check back in on that over the next few weeks.
Let's check out the new rankings, as it compares to last week.
