De Paula was assigned to Single-A Rancho Cucamonga on Tuesday.

The Dodgers' best prospect with zero full-season experience entering the season, De Paula gets this assignment just days ahead of the Arizona Complex League opening. He is making the rare jump from the Dominican Summer League to Single-A without playing complex ball. The 6-foot-3 outfielder has massive power potential and showed a keen eye at the plate as a 17-year-old in the DSL (31:32 K:BB in 53 games).
