MLB prospects have become an ever-popular phenomenon over the past decade or so. Now, more eyes than ever are focused on prospects rather than the young players in an organization being a faceless commodity.
Accordingly, Jim Callis of MLB.com’s MLB Pipeline examines the Top-10 Farm Systems of the decade. Obviously, the Dodgers made the list; which should come as no surprise.

However, what is somewhat surprising is where Callis ranks the Dodgers. He ranks Los Angeles 8th out of 10.
At any rate, here’s how Callis views LA’s farm work over the past decade.
Los Angeles keeps seamlessly integrating Top 100 Prospects into its perennial National League West championship clubs: Corey Seager, Cody Bellinger, Joc Pederson, Walker Buehler, Alex Verdugo, Julío Urias and Will Smith. The Dodgers’ most prolific 2010s graduates so far have been international products Carlos Santana and Yasiel Puig, with Kenley Jansen not far behind.
It’s nice to see the Dodgers as a top-10 team on this…
