The 2002 season saw Dan Evans take over as General Manager and in his first season the team won 92 games and was not eliminated from post season contention until the next-to-last day of the season, finishing third overall in the Western Division of the National League. Shawn Green hit 42 home runs to become the first L.A. Dodger to have back-to-back 40 or more homer seasons. He had four homers in one game on May 23 against the Milwaukee Brewers. He went 6 for 6 in that game and set a Major League mark for total bases with 19.[1] The number broke the previous record of 18 total bases set by Joe Adcock. Éric Gagné who had been a starter previously became the closer in 2002 and set a club mark with 52 saves. This is also their first season to be broadcast on KCOP (13).

Major League Baseball Draft

The Dodgers selected 52 players in this draft. Of those, nine of them would eventually play Major League baseball. They gained a supplemental first round pick and an extra second round pick as compensation for losing pitcher Chan Ho Park to the Texas Rangers as a free agent.

With their first round pick, the Dodgers selected first baseman James Loney from Lawrence E Elkins High School in Missouri City, Texas. Loney would make it to the Majors in 2006 and was the Dodgers primary starting first baseman until he was traded in 2012. He hit 71 home runs and drove in 451 RBI in his seven seasons with the Dodgers, while hitting .284. The supplemental first round pick was left handed pitcher Greg Miller from Esperanza High School in Anaheim, California. Miller was a highly touted prospect and the 2003 Dodgers minor league pitcher of the year after he went 11-4 with a 2.49 ERA in 21 starts for the Vero Beach Dodgers. However, he missed the entire 2004 season with an arm injury and was never able to regain his touch. In eight minor league seasons (the last in the independent American Association) he was 24-15 with a 3.89 ERA in 221 games (53 starts).[3]

This was a fairly successful draft, after several sub-par drafts that proceeded it. Also drafted this season were relief pitcher Jonathan Broxton (second round), starting pitchers James McDonald (11th round, drafted as a first baseman) and Eric Stults (15th round) and catcher Russell Martin (17th round, drafted as a second baseman).
