One of the most impressive things about the Dodgers is how management finds a way to give at least a handful of prospects a decent amount of playing time each season, despite the team’s depth.
So far this season, we have already seen 25 different pitchers appear for the Los Angeles Dodgers in some capacity — 26 if you count Hanser Alberto’s outing on Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Last year, there were 39 pitchers to throw for the Dodgers, indicating that fans could be in store for even more new faces as the 2022 season progresses.
As the pitching carousel continues to turn for the Los Angeles Dodgers, another generation of players are getting their chances on the big-league stage.
Last week, fans had the chance to see 24-year-old righty Ryan Pepiot throw in the majors for the first time. On Sunday in the series finale against the Phillies, they’ll be able to see 25-year-old right-hander Michael Grove.
After selecting righty pitcher J.T. Ginn with their first selection of the 2018 MLB draft on Monday evening, the Dodgers chose West Virginia University right-handed pitcher Michael Grove with the 68th overall selection in the second round.
