5 Dodgers minor leaguers voted as league All-Stars by peers, led by Joc Pederson


Five Dodgers minor-league players were voted as All-Stars for their respective leagues, according to a poll conducted by Baseball America. The main prospects on the list were one of the system’s top prospects in Joc Pederson and one of the system’s up-and-coming prospects in Jacob Scavuzzo.


In AAA, Nick Buss of the Albuquerque Isotopes made the outfield for the Pacific Coast League. He has posted a .303/.363/.525/.888 line, but at 26 is just trying to move up from organizational depth to a spot on the 40-man roster.

In AA, Joc Pederson of the Chattanooga Lookouts made the outfield for the Southern League. One of the Dodgers’ best prospects, he has put up a .278/.381/.497/.878 line against advanced pitching at age 21. He’ll probably move up to AAA next year, unless the Dodgers make his inevitable trade during the off-season.

At A+, Scott Schebler of the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes made the outfield for the California League. A bit older for the league than most future regulars, Schebler has posted an impressive .296/.360/.581/.941 line. He’s a solid prospect and certainly one to watch as he moves to AA. The disadvantage is that he doesn’t necessarily have the time other prospects do in terms of repeating the league.

At A, Geoff Brown of the Great Lakes Loons made the bullpen for the Midwest League. At 24, he’s not much of a prospect, but he put up a 2.08 ERA in 78.0 innings pitched.

At R, Jacob Scavuzzo of the Ogden Raptors made the outfield for the Pioneer League. Splitting time between right and center, Scavuzzo put up a monster line of .305/.352/.580/.932. And while he’s not the second-most likely to make the MLB on this list, he probably is the second-best prospect on this list, as his name even came up back when Dustin Nosler talked with Logan White. At 6’4″ and just 19, there’s plenty of reason to be optimistic.
