Dodgers Prospects: July 23, 2022 Wrap Up; Michael Busch, Ryan Ward, Miguel Vargas

OKC Dodgers

The OKC Dodgers won 8-4. Pitcher Michael Grove only threw 3.2 innings, but had one of his better starts. He gave up just 2 hits, no runs or walks and K’d 4. Jason Martin hit 2 homers that brings his total to 21 on the season. Top prospect, Michael Busch hit his 11th for OKC and 22nd overall. He also had a double. Hot prospect, Miguel Vargas started at third base and had a double and his 10th stolen base. With Justin Turner possible going on the injured list, what does than mean for Vargas?

Tulsa Drillers

The Trillers brought the offense as they win 10-4. Ryan Ward had 2 homers to get him to 24 on the season. He is know longer and unknown prospect.


Catcher Ryan January had 3 hits including his first homer with the Drillers. Top prospect, Andy Pages had a double and a home run, his 16th. Pages is starting to really put up some big power numbers. Leonel Valera, recently promoted from High-A, had his 3rd home run with a single and 3 RBI. Valera is hitting .304 with the Drillers.

Brandon Lewis had his 12th homer and Devin Mann had 2 hits. Watch out for Kody Hoese as he know has his batting average up to .274 after 3 hits today. He’s had a tough 2021 with some injuries and now he is rebounding.

On the mound Alec Gamboa was credited with the win and is 9-0. More importantly, he threw 3 innings, gave up 1 hit and struck out 3.

Great Lakes Loons

The Loons lost a close one, 3-2. An excellent outing from starting pitcher, Nick Nastrini was wasted as he went 6 innings, gave up 3 hits, 2 earned runs, walked run and had 5 Ks. Braydon Fisher continues to impress in the bullpen with 2 innings and 2 Ks. The offense only produced 5 hits but 3 were doubles from Jose Ramos, Edwin Mateo and Imanol Vargas.

Rancho Cucamonga Quakes

The Quakes lost 4-2. River Ryan was the starting pitcher for the Quakes. If you recall, he was the player acquired for Matt Beaty. Ryan threw only 3 innings but had 7 strikeouts. He was victimized by some defensive issues so the start was cut short.

ACL Dodgers

The ACL Dodgers lost 8-6. CF Buddy Reed, a former major league player, led the team with 3 hits, including a double and 2 RBI. Prospect Jesus Galiz, who played DH but is normally a catcher, had 2 hits, that also included a double and an RBI.

DSL Mega and Bautista

The teams played each other with Mega winning a real slugfest, 3-0. The teams had a total of 6 hits and 1 RBI between them. All the runs scored were unearned. CF Josue De Paula was the only player with 2 hits while SS Mairoshendrick Martinus had the only extra base hit, a double.

Pitching obviously dominated this game. Guillermo Arvizu went 3 innings, gave up 4 hits, struck out 4 and allowed nothing else. Jose Rodriguez went 2 innings, walked 1 and struck out 3. Ricardo Montero went 3 innings, gave up 3 unearned runs, 1 hit, 0 walks and 3 Ks.
