Q: Can the Dodgers re-sign any of these players?

A: Yes they can. In fact, I would expect a few to come back.

Q: How many of these used to be highly rated prospects?

A: Actually quite a few were in the Top 30 at one time or another. Brock Stewart, Cristian Santana, and Romer Cuadrado are some off the top of my head.

Q: Brock Stewart came back?
