Good morning everyone and welcome to the Minor League Ball Gameday discussion thread for Monday, November 13th, 2017. Here are some highlights from Saturday’s action in the Arizona Fall League:
*****The Glendale Desert Dogs outhit the Scottsdale Scorpions 12-7, with every player in the Dogs lineup getting at least one hit. Los Angeles Dodgers prospect Matt Beaty went 2-for-5 with three RBI and Cleveland Indians prospect Ka’ai Tom hit a home run while going 1-for-4 with two walks and three runs scored.
*****The Mesa Solar Sox brutally stomped the Salt River Rafters 16-2. Houston Astros outfield prospect Kyle Tucker, Oakland Athletics catcher prospect Sean Murphy, and Detroit Tigers shortstop prospect A.J. Simcox all went 3-for-5 with Simcox contributing a home run.
*****In another high-scoring affair, the Peoria Javelinas defeated the Surprise Saguaros 11-10. Atlanta Braves prospect Ronald Acuna hit two homers for the victors while Seattle Mariners prospect Eric Filia went 3-for-5 with two runs scored.
IN THE PIPELINE
I’m working on the Los Angeles Dodgers Top 20 prospects list for 2018. I should have the preliminary grade breakdown finished later this afternoon.
