Dodgers: Ryan Pepiot Excited for MLB Time with Minors Teammates

Dodgers pitcher Ryan Pepiot talked to Dodgers Nation about how excited he is to play in the big leagues with guys he’s known for years in the minors.

Dodgers pitcher Ryan Pepiot made his major-league debut in 2022, posting a 3.47 ERA in 36.1 innings with Los Angeles. The young righty pitched in nine games, including seven starts, and went 3-0.

Pepiot’s role on the 2023 LA team is unclear, but he’s likely to see more time in the big leagues in some capacity. The Dodgers are having a bit of a youth movement this year, which means a lot of Pepiot’s teammates from the minor leagues will now become his teammates in the major leagues.

Pepiot recently talked with Dodgers Nation about his excitement for the youth movement in Los Angeles.

“It’s also super exciting for me, too, because it’s a lot of the guys that I’ve came up the system with and played that are going to get some playing time and get to see them showcase their talents at the big league level. And I know these guys are going to have success like Outy [James Outman], [Michael] Busch, [Miguel] Vargas, Gavin Stone, [Michael] Grove, Andre [Jackson], all those guys I’ve played with for years now, and it’s fun to see us come up together as friends and as teammates and just to be able to see the guys living their dream, as well, it’s really cool and really special to be a part of.”

Pepiot was specifically asked about Bobby Miller and Gavin Stone, the Dodgers’ top two pitching prospects who are both likely to debut in 2023.

“They’re great dudes and they were with me in Triple-A this year, so it’s a lot of fun to watch them throw. I mean, they’re really good and they’re really special and Dodger fans should be excited to have them come up this year.”

As an experienced big-leaguer, Pepiot will be able to help mentor some of the guys debuting this year, a role he’s looking forward to.

“Yeah, definitely would like to take them under my wing and help them out. I went through it, they’re going to go through it. as well. So just give my little bits and pieces to help them have the most success they possibly can, I’d like that.”

Miller and Stone should be exciting to watch, and it’s good to have a guy like Pepiot to help ease their transition to the big leagues.
