    The 1992 Los Angeles Dodgers season was a poor one for the team as it finished last in the Western Division of the National League with a record of 63 wins and 99 losses. Despite boasting what was nicknamed the "Outfield of Dreams", being manned by Eric Davis, Brett Butler, and Darryl Strawberry, injuries to key players and slumps from others contributed to the franchise's worst season since moving to Los Angeles. Additionally, the Dodgers cancelled four home games during the season due to the L.A. Riots. Despite the poor finish, the Dodgers had some hope for the future as first baseman Eric Karros won the National League Rookie of the Year Award, the first of five consecutive Dodger players to do so.

    Major League Baseball Draft

    The Dodgers selected 53 players in this draft. Of those, only one of them would eventually play Major League baseball. The Dodgers lost their first round pick to the Toronto Blue Jays as a result of their signing free agent Tom Candiotti but gained two supplemental first round picks, a second round pick and a third round pick as compensation for departing free agents Eddie Murray and Mike Morgan.

    With their first pick, the Dodgers selected Catcher Ryan Luzinsky from Holy Cross High School. The son of former Major Leaguer Greg Luzinski, he was a promising power hitter when he spurned a letter of intent with the University of Miami to sign with the Dodgers.[3] However, he never quite lived up to his promise. Blocked by Mike Piazza's ascent wth the Dodgers, he bounced around the teams farm system until a trade to the Baltimore Orioles in 1997.[4] In eight minor league seasons, he hit .265 with 49 home runs and 296 RBI but could never make the move from AAA to the Majors.

    The other first round pick, outfielder Mike Moore from UCLA also failed to advance, he hit .242 in 912 big league games over 14 seasons (six of which were in the independent leagues).

    The only player from this draft class to make the Majors was infielder Keith Johnson from the University of the Pacific. He appeared in six games for the 2000 Anaheim Angels and had two hits in four at-bats. He would later become a AAA manager in the Angels system for the Salt Lake Bees.
