The Los Angeles Dodgers have always been an organization that prides itself on pitching, and the farm system seems to be constantly teeming with promising young arms. The team's most recent successful homegrown pitching talent is Clayton Kershaw, who has blossomed into a two-time Cy Young Award winner.
