Minor League Barometer: On The Radar

This article is part of our Minor League Barometer series.

Over the past week or so, we've seen just how much a prospect can impact a squad. Just ask the Los Angeles Dodgers, as Cody Bellinger was just supposed to enjoy a brief cup of coffee in the big leagues but came out of the gate scorching hot. Now that Adrian Gonzalez is on the Disabled List, Bellinger has quickly gone from biding his time in the minors to starting at first in Chavez Ravine.

3. Brandon Woodruff, P, MIL - Sure, he's 24 years of age and enjoyed a surprising surge in strikeouts last season. But Woodruff has continued that success into the 2017 campaign, posting a 1.83 ERA and 30:7 K:BB in 34 innings in the extremely hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League.
