Kopp, a local kid out of Baldwin Park, Calif., was selected by the Dodgers in the 12th round of the 2021 draft. The 20-year-old made his mark as a hurler at Scottsdale High School in Arizona and South Mountain Community College before joining LA as a pro.

In parts of two seasons in the minor leagues, Kopp owns a 5-2 record with a 2.80 ERA in 28 games. He’s started 10 games this season as well and has tossed 59 innings between low-A Rancho Cucamonga and high-A Great Lakes.
