Major League Baseball Draft

Main article: 1984 Major League Baseball Draft

The Dodgers drafted 28 players in the June draft and 13 in the January draft. Of those, six players would eventually play in the Major Leagues.

The Dodgers first round pick in the June draft was pitcher Dennis Livingston from Oklahoma State University. He remained with the Dodgers organization until 1987 before moving to the Montreal Expos system. In six seasons in the minors he accumulated a record of 24-36 and a 5.13 ERA in 165 games (59 as a starter). This draft did produce three Major League relief pitchers in Tim Scott (round 2), Darren Holmes (round 16) and Jeff Nelson (round 22) as well as utility player Tracy Woodson (round 3).
