2022 Tulsa Drillers Opening Day Roster Headlined By Bobby Miller, Michael Busch & Andy Pages

The Opening Day roster for the Tulsa Drillers, the Double-A affiliate of the Los Angeles Dodgers, was finalized and it includes several of the organization’s top prospects and a majority of the players returning to the team for another season.

The 28-man squad features 22 players who played for Tulsa during the 2021 season. Of the 16 pitchers, 14 spent at least part of last year with the Drillers. Among position players, eight are returnees compared to four players who will be making their debuts with the Drillers.

The Drillers Opening Day roster is headlined by Bobby Miller, Michael Busch and Andy Pages. All three are ranked among the top five prospects in the Dodgers’ system and in total there are 10 players on the Tulsa roster that were ranked among the top-30 Dodgers’ prospects.

That group is comprised of Miller (No. 2), Busch (No. 3), Pages (No. 4), Clayton Beeter (No. 15), James Outman (No. 17), Jacob Amaya (No. 19), Michael Grove (No. 23), Kody Hoese (No. 24), Carson Taylor (No. 27) and Justin Yurchak (No. 30).

The two pitchers on the staff who have not previously appeared in a game for the Drillers are Alec Gamboa and Tanner Dodson. For the position players, Brandon Lewis, Ryan Ward, Carson Taylor and Pages will all be making their Drillers debuts this season.

Chris Betts, will also be with the club but he will begin the year on the development list. Betts signed a Minor League contract with the Dodgers this past offseason after being selected by the Tampa Bay Rays in the second round of the 2015 MLB Draft and splitting the 2021 season between the organization’s Rookie-level and Double-A affiliates.
