The Los Angeles Dodgers #3 Top Pitching prospect, Gavin Stone has been nearly perfect this spring as he is 3-0, with a 0.93 ERA, with nine strikeouts in 9.2 IP.

The second year rookie appeared in eight games in 2023, with four starts and went 1-1, with a 9.00 ERA. In his brief time in the minors (2021-2023), Stone has won 18 games in 66 starts, to a 3.19 ERA, and 426 strikeouts through 313.1 innings pitched.

The Lake City, Arkansas native, earned his first spring training style win on February 22nd, after tossing a shutout inning. In his next outing, he pitched 1.2 innings in relief, allowing one run on one hit and two strikeouts.

On March 3rd, Stone started the game and pitched three shutout innings, allowing two hits, no walks and struck out one batter. Seven days later, Stone continued his spring near perfection, as he tossed four shutout innings, allowing two hits, struck out five batters and lowered his spring ERA to 0.93.

There are reports that there is an opportunity for Stone to grab the 5th spot in the Dodgers rotation, and so far he has pitched well enough to earn that opportunity to break camp with the big club.

With the start of the regular just a week away, the Dodgers may be making that decision very soon. We all wait and see!
