Eighteen-year-old pitching prospect Julio Urias, who was invited to his first major league spring training last week, will take part in the Dodgers’ winter development camp for prospects this week at Dodger Stadium.

Urias is one of 27 prospects who will take part in this year’s camp, up from 15 a year ago. Earlier today we posted a partial list of four prospects who will take part in the eighth annual camp (Grant Holmes, Jose De Leon, Cody Bellinger, Ryan Scott).

The other 23 participants include pitcher Zach Lee, who also took part in last year’s camp and spent all season at Triple-A. Pitchers Carlos Frias and Daniel Coulombe, who earned their first major league call-ups last September, have also been invited. Another pitcher of note is Ross Stripling, who underwent Tommy John surgery in spring training of last year.

Catcher Austin Barnes, who was acquired in the trade that sent Dee Gordon and Dan Haren to the Miami Marlins, will take part in the camp. So will outfielders Scott Schebler and Darnell Sweeney, who will be in the Dodgers’ major league spring training camp.

Urias isn’t even the youngest invitee. That would be Michael Medina, an outfielder from the Dominican Republic who is 12 days younger than Urias. He finished last season with the Rookie-league AZL Dodgers.

Shortstop prospect Corey Seager, 20, was invited to spring training but was not invited to the camp.

On the Farm: Onelki Garcia; Tyler Ogle; two seasons end.

Four of the Dodgers’ top five minor-league affiliates saw their regular seasons end Monday.

First, a couple noteworthy individual performances:

Onelki Garcia made his professional debut for Single-A Rancho Cucamonga and struck out four of the six batters he faced in two perfect innings. The left-hander was the Dodgers’ third-round draft pick in June, but had not pitched since because of a delay in obtaining his work visa. Garcia defected from Cuba in 2010.

Tyler Ogle went 3-for-3 with a walk and four RBIs in his debut game at Triple-A Albuquerque. The catcher, a ninth-round draft pick in 2011 out of the University of Oklahoma, made stops in the Arizona League (.483 in 16 games), Midwest League (.210 in 18 games for Great Lakes), Pioneer League (.258 in 8 games for Ogden) before coming to Albuquerque when Tim Federowicz was called up by the Dodgers.

Leon Landry, a former Dodgers outfield prospect now playing for the Single-A High Desert Mavericks, clinched the California League batting title (.341). Landry was sent to the Seattle Mariners along with prospect Logan Bawcom in the trade that brought Brandon League to the Dodgers.
