Two Dodgers’ minor-league affiliates in playoff action tonight.

With the Dodgers getting a rare September off-day today, I decided to look in on the club’s minor-league affiliates who are participating in the playoffs.

It was a quick look.

Three Dodgers affiliates found their way into their respective postseasons: The Arizona League Dodgers (who were eliminated Saturday), the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts and the Rookie-level Ogden Raptors.

Chattanooga and Ogden are both in action tonight, against Huntsville and Idaho Falls, respectively. The Chattanooga game isn’t available via MiLB.TV, but the Ogden game is. Eighteen-year-old left-hander Victor Gonzalez is starting for Ogden in a game that begins at 6:15 p.m. PST.

Rookie-league Ogden begins season today with several recent draft picks on the roster.

The short-season Rookie league Ogden Raptors begin play today. Several members of the Dodgers’ 2014 draft class will be on the roster: pitchers John Richy (third round), Brock Stewart (sixth round), Ryan Taylor (13th) and Joe Broussard (15th); outfielders Colin Hering (10th round), Devin Ahart (16th) and Brian Wolfe (20th); and infielders Ivan Vela (21st) and Jimmy Allen (24th).

The club is managed by former Cy Young Award winner Jack McDowell.

The Dodgers have two other short-season Rookie league affiliates: The Arizona League Dodgers, which begin play Friday and the Dominican Summer League Dodgers, which began play May 31.
