After opening the season in Visalia, the Ranch Cucamonga Quakes play their Home Opener on Tuesday, April 12, 2022. The Quakes are easily one of the best bang-for-the-buck in Southern California.
Top 30 Prospects Galore
The Dodgers are a team loaded with excellent prospects and six of the MLB Pipeline prospects are on the Quakes.
- Diego Cartaya – the number one prospect on the Dodgers and the number 28th overall.
- Maddux Bruns – the number 12 prospect for the Dodgers and their number one draft pick in 2021.
- Jose Ramos – the number 14 prospect for the Dodgers and he keeps making great strides.
- Alex De Jesus – the number 20 prospect. He started slowly last season but came on strong.
- Luis Rodriguez – the number 25 prospect. Luis has all the tools and is just 19 years old.
- Jake Vogel – the number 29 prospect with lightning speed.
The Quakes hosted a Media Day last week and we were there to meet some of the coaches and players.
