  • Dodgers' Jacob Amaya: Promoted to Triple-A

    Amaya was promoted to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Eric Stephen of reports.

    While Amaya was repeating Double-A this year, he did so in very impressive fashion. The 23-year-old shortstop hit .264/.370/.500 with nine home runs, three steals and a 120 wRC+. Most notably, he had by far the highest ISO (.236) of his career while trimming his K% from 21.6% in 2021 to 13.4% this season and increasing his BB% from 10.9% to 14.8%.

  • Dodgers' Jacob Amaya: Popping in Double-A

    Amaya is hitting .315/.420/.653 with nine homers, two steals and a 24:18 BB:K for Double-A Tulsa.

    He's also averaging nearly a run per game -- 31 in 34 contests. The 23-year-old didn't come into the season with a reputation as a power hitter -- he socked just 12 homers with a .343 slugging percentage in 113 Double-A games last year -- but he's certainly muscled up this season. Amaya has always been considered an excellent defender, which should help punch his ticket to the big leagues as soon as next season, though his long-term outlook will hinge on whether he can carry this season's impressive power gains forward. At worst, he's an excellent utility infielder, but if he can keep hitting like this, he's got chance to be considerably more than that.

  • Dodgers' Jacob Amaya: Protected from Rule 5 draft

    Amaya's contract was selected by the Dodgers on Friday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

    Amaya served as a non-roster invitee during spring training in 2021, but he spent the entire season at Double-A Tulsa and slashed .216/.303/.343 with 12 homers, 60 runs, 47 RBI and five stolen bases. His addition to the 40-man roster will protect him from the Rule 5 draft.

  • Dodgers' Jacob Amaya: Headed to spring camp

    Amaya will attend the Dodgers' big-league camp this spring, Eric Stephen of reports.

    Amaya spent last season at the team's alternate training site after hitting a combined .260 with seven homers and 71 RBI across two levels in 2019. He has considerable defensive talent and a good eye at the plate but hasn't yet demonstrated an ability to hit for power.

  • Dodgers' Jacob Amaya: Joins 60-man player pool

    Amaya was added to the Dodgers' 60-man player pool Monday, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    He will report to the Dodgers' alternate training site at USC after being a non-roster invitee during spring training. Amaya, who turns 22 on Sept. 3, has displayed excellent plate skills in the minors, but he has never posted an ISO higher than .132 in full-season ball. He most recently hit .250/.307/.375 with one home run and one steal in 21 games at High-A.
