Dodgers: LA’s top prospect passes agents to Scott Boras

A title that no one likes to read. A Dodgers player has Scott Boras as his agent. Sadly, Los Angeles’ top pitcher, right-hander Ryan Pepiot, switched to Boras corp just weeks after Corey Seager – a Boras client – signed for the best price with the Texas Rangers.

The 24-year-old is billed as an unmissable star in the big leagues. While he struggled in his first taste for higher competition at Triple-A in 2021 (7.13 ERA out of 41.2 IP), he has been much better in his short professional career (2 , 60 ERA out of 83 IP). The 6’3 ″ pitcher has a powerful fastball with a devastating shift.

Additionally, as the MLB lockdown affects players on recent 40-player rosters and big leagues, top prospects like Ryan are under scrutiny. closer. by the organization this winter because the lockout does not change anything for minor league players.

The Dodgers have added a pair of pitching gurus to the Driveline Baseball ranks this offseason who no doubt work closely with guys like Pepiot, Landon Knack and Bobby Miller to name a few.
