The Los Angeles Dodgers' starting nine and bullpen are all but set at this point in Spring Training, but there have been multiple prospects who have made their mark this preseason. While they might not be a part of the club's success this year, they will definitely be huge contributors for the club in years to come. Take a look at the top-5 prospects from the Dodgers' 2014 Spring Training.
The 17-year-old Juilo Urias has only pitched one inning this Spring Training, but it was impressive enough for him to be included on this list. Urias struck out the San Diego Padres' Will Venable and Yonder Alonso without breaking a sweat. Dodger fans are unlikely to see Urias in the big leagues this year, but his performance in his one Spring Training was a great sign for the Dodgers.
Miguel Rojas is an elder statesmen on this list at the age of 25, but his great performance this spring earned him a spot on this list. Rojas hit. He had .462 in 26 at-bats this spring which should be good enough for the Dodgers to consider adding him to the 25-man roster. If Rojas is able to continue his success in the regular season he could become one of the Dodgers' most valuable backups.
Seth Rosin was one of the most pleasant surprises for the Dodgers this Spring Training. The 25-year-old posted a 1.64 ERA this spring and likely booted Brandon League from the Dodgers' bullpen. Rosin's performance should get all of Dodgers Nation excited for 2014.
Alex Guerrero came into Spring Training with high expectations and blew everyone away with his talent. Whether Guerrero was hitting grand slams or playing a solid second base, he was opening eyes wherever he went. He will likely start the 2014 season in the minors, but he made a strong case to be the Dodgers' second basemen of the future.
Dodger fans got their first taste of Jose Dominguez during the 2013 season after he was called up in the midst of the regular season. Unfortunately, an injury slowed Dominguez's rise to prominence and left him unable to compete for most of the season. Dominguez continued where he left off last year, not allowing a single run in 8 innings pitched this spring.
