Dalton Rushing

21-Year-Old CatcherC
Los Angeles Dodgers A
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Rushing, the 40th overall pick from last year's draft, hasn't played against age-appropriate competition yet in the pros, but his statistical output at Single-A as a 21-year-old was infallible. He didn't get to do much his first two years at Louisville while playing behind eventual No. 1 overall pick Henry Davis, but Rushing was excellent in the Cape Cod League and as a junior. His exit velocity and swing decision data is elite, it's just a matter of seeing how it translates at High-A and, more importantly, Double-A, but if he stays on this trajectory, he could eventually be seen as a top-10 real-life prospect. Rushing's talent and potential warrants excitement, but we are seeing a catching renaissance in dynasty leagues and the Dodgers' organization itself has an excess. However, Rushing already started playing some first base last season, and if the bat is as good as it seems, he could start plenty at designated hitter too. Read Past Outlooks

Rushing got into 28 games for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga after being drafted this summer and slashed .424/.539/.778 with eight home runs, 30 RBI, 27 runs and a 21:21 BB:K.
ANALYSIS
Now that's how you make a great first impression. Rushing flashed big power in college with Louisville, and he absolutely obliterated the competition over this small sample of A ball. We'll need to see him keep hitting at higher levels, but even so, he's quickly made himself into a dynasty-league target.
