The Los Angeles Dodgers have the luxury of being able to buy top talent in the league. The team also has a loaded farm system, which could help them in pursuit of star players on the trade market. With guys like Francisco Lindor potentially available this offseason, LA could be willing to part with some top prospects. However, there are several youngsters the Dodgers should be hesitant to trade this offseason.
3. Dustin May
Dustin May is LA's top pitching prospect and appeared in 14 games for the Dodgers in 2019, logging a 3.63 ERA with 32 strikeouts in 34.2 innings. With Clayton Kershaw getting older and big money set to be spent on the lineup, May is cheap option to join the rotation on a full-time basis. The tall right-hander has been in the system since 2016 and can lead the new wave of Dodgers pitchers.
2. Kody Hoese
Kody Hoese was the team's top pick in 2019 and showed some flashes in limited action, slashing .299/.380/.483 between rookie ball and Single-A. The third baseman has shown limited power but has otherwise impressed, capable of getting on base with the best of them. Hoese is definitely someone the Dodgers should be keeping in the system.
1. Gavin Lux
Gavin Lux is another top prospect who made his debut in 2019. He appeared in 23 games and even hit a home run in the NLDS. The 22-year-old can be the long-term option at second base in LA. He had 26 home runs and 76 RBI in the minors in 2019 while slashing .347/.421/.607. With numbers like those, LA shouldn't even entertain dealing Lux.
