Team to watch
Three of the Dodgers' five Top 100 Prospects will open at Double-A Tulsa: right-hander Bobby Miller, second baseman Michael Busch and outfielder Andy Pages. The Drillers' deep lineup also includes outfielder James Outman, shortstop Jacob Amaya, third baseman Kody Hoese, catcher Carson Taylor and first baseman Justin Yurchak (last year's Minor League batting champion at .365). Like Miller, righties Clayton Beeter and Michael Grove have some of the more electric stuff in the system.

New faces
All members of our Dodgers Top 30 already have played in Minor League games with the organization. Left-hander Maddux Bruns, a 2021 first-round pick, and outfielder Luis Rodriguez, who signed for $2,667,500 out of Venezuela in 2019, are making their full-season debuts at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga.

On the shelf
Right-handers Landon Knack and Carlos Duran had small setbacks building up their arms and remain in extended spring training. Knack should be ready for an upper-level assignment in mid-April, while Duran may need a full month before heading to High-A Great Lakes.
