In 2005, the Los Angeles Dodgers suffered from a rash of injuries to key players such as closer Éric Gagné, shortstop César Izturis and outfielder J. D. Drew and fell to their second worst record in Los Angeles history, finishing in fourth place in the Western Division of the National League. After the season, manager Jim Tracy and General Manager Paul DePodesta were both fired and the team was torn apart. This is also there last season to be broadcast on KCOP (13).

Major League Baseball Draft[edit]

The Dodgers selected 51 players in this draft. Of those, 13 of them would eventually play Major League baseball. They lost their first round draft pick as a result of signing free agent Derek Lowe but gained a supplemental first round pick and a second round pick as compensation for the loss of free agent Adrián Beltré.

The first round pick was right-handed pitcher Luke Hochevar out of the University of Tennessee. After a long and controversial negotiation period, Hochevar backed out on a deal to sign with the Dodgers and would re-enter the draft the following year where he signed with the Kansas City Royals.

While several members of this years draft class would make the Majors, none were more than role players.
