    Major League Baseball Draft

    The Dodgers drafted 63 players in this draft. Of those, seven of them would eventually play Major League baseball. The Dodgers lost their second round pick to the Montreal Expos because they had signed free agent Hubie Brooks but they gained two supplemental second round picks as compensation for losing Dave Anderson and John Tudor. They also lost their third round pick to the Pittsburgh Pirates because they had signed pitcher Jim Gott.

    The first round pick was left-handed pitcher Ronnie Walden out of Blanchard High School in Blanchard, Oklahoma. Serious arm injuries derailed his career and he only pitched in seven games in the Dodgers farm system, three in 1990 and four in 1993 when he attempted a comeback. He retired for good in 1994 with his arm so bad he would never be able to even play catch with his kids.[3]

    This years draft class was a disappointment as neither second round pick got out of "A" ball. Mike Busch, the fourth round pick, made the Majors, appearing in 51 games in 1995 and 1996 as a third baseman for the Dodgers but his decision to be a replacement player during the 1994-95 strike made it hard for him to catch on. He played in Korea and later played and managed in the independent Northern League. Busch was the only one of the Dodgers first 13 draft picks to advance past class A. Pitcher Todd Williams, who was selected in the 54th round, was the only Major Leaguer that signed from this draft class to have a length career as he had a 12-14 record in 227 games over parts of eight seasons.
