Dodgers 2016 Midseason Prospect Update: Julio Urias Replaces Corey Seager As No. 1

The season is more than half way over so it’s time to take a look at how Los Angeles Dodgers prospects have changed their standing thus far. Naturally, with Corey Seager firmly entrenched in the Majors, he no longer is a prospect per se.

That’s opened the door for Julio Urias to move up a spot from the preseason rankings. Urias went 1-2 with a 4.95 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 44 strikeouts over eight starts (36.1 innings pitched) with the Dodgers.

He’s since been optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City, where Urias is working as a relief pitcher and starter. The domino effect of Seager coming off the list also moves up Jose De Leon up, among others.

Here is the updated top 45 prospects in the Dodgers’ organization.
