The 1993 Dodgers improved on the dismal 1992 season finishing fourth in the Western Division of the National League. This was in part thanks to this year's Rookie of the Year winner, catcher Mike Piazza. Piazza set rookie records with 35 home runs and 112 RBI. He also hit two home runs on the last day of the season as the Dodgers knocked their longtime rival the Giants out of playoff contention with a 12-1 victory at Dodger Stadium.

Major League Baseball Draft[edit]

The Dodgers selected 57 players in this draft. Of those, seven of them would eventually play Major League baseball. The Dodgers lost their second round pick as a result of signing free agent pitcher Todd Worrell.

With the second overall pick in the draft the Dodgers selected right-handed pitcher Darren Dreifort from Wichita State University. Dreifort became one of only a select few players to make his professional debut in the Majors, without first appearing in a minor league game. He would play nine years in the Majors (all of them with the Dodgers), though serious injuries caused him to miss two full seasons and ultimately ended his career. His record was 48-60 with a 4.36 ERA in 274 games (113 starts).

In the 25th round, they selected catcher Paul Lo Duca from Arizona State University. In 11 seasons (seven with the Dodgers), he hit .286 with 80 homers and 481 RBIs while being a four time All-Star. LoDuca would later be mentioned in the Mitchell Report, which claimed that he had used human growth hormone (HGH) through out his career and in fact contributed to other members of the Dodgers also using HGH.
