If you’re one of the few who hasn’t heard the news, another acclaimed pitching prospect is preparing to make his big league debut for the Dodgers. This time around it’s 25-year-old righty Tony Gonsolin, the fourth-best prospect in the Los Angeles system, according to MLB Pipeline.
Without fail, there are at least a couple prospects every spring making a case for their inclusion on the big league roster. Spring camp is the one time of the year these youngsters have a chance to compete against veteran players at the highest level, despite many of the vets taking the field to polish up mechanics or fix a small tweak here and there.
The Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday named right-handed pitcher Tony Gonsolin as the Branch Rickey Minor League Pitcher of the Year and infielder Gavin Lux as the Branch Rickey Minor League Player of the Year.
