Three Los Angeles Dodgers prospects were named as Minor League Players of the Week for their respective leagues for the week of Aug. 22-28, as James Outman, Ismael Alcantara and Dalton Rushing all received the honor.
Outman, who is currently playing with the Triple-A Oklahoma City Dodgers, was given the award for the Pacific Coast League. Over the week, he batted .571 with two home runs, 14 RBI and 29 total bases, which included hitting for the cycle. Days later, Outman hit for the cycle a second time.
The 25-year-old outfielder, who made his MLB debut earlier this season, was originally selected by the Dodgers in the seventh round of the 2018 MLB Draft. After beginning the year with the Double-A Tulsa Drillers, Outman ended up earning two promotions this season.
Alcantara took the honors in the Midwest League playing with the High-A Great Lakes Loons. He hit .500 with three home runs, seven RBI and 19 total bases. Despite his week, Alcantara has had a modest showing with the Loons this season.
The 23-year-old outfielder was signed by the Dodgers as an international free agent in 2017 out of the Dominican Republic.
Rushing, who is playing for the Single-A Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, was given the honor for the California League. He hit .522 with one home run, seven RBI and 20 total bases, including going 5-for-6 on Sunday.
The 21-year-old catcher was the Dodgers’ first selection, No. 40 overall, in the 2022 MLB Draft out of the University of Louisville.
