The Most Important Arizona Fall League Players To Watch

Arizona Fall League rosters have been released and did not disappoint. The Fall League is a great time for teams to test the overall skills of a prospect. Positive performance is a great sign of future success in the Major Leagues. I have listed a few players below that I will be watching.

Peoria Javelinas

Keston Hiura - I am interested to see how well he hits and defends. AFL MVP is not impossible.

Cristian Pache - Keep a close eye on his extra base hits and home runs.

Buddy Reed - I am looking for an overall good performance. He continues to improve.

Scottsdale Scorpions

Sixto Sanchez - I am worried about Sixto's health. If he is healthy and performs well, he will be a top 15 prospect in 2019.

Ronnie Dawson - Watching for an improvement in the strikeout rate.

Suprise Saquaros

Khalil Lee - Watching for an improvement in the strikeout rate.

Bryan Reynolds - Nice prospect. A good performance will boost his stock.

Salt River Rafters

Daulton Varsho - A rare catching prospect that I love. He should play well. Still needs a Bowman Chrome auto.

Pavin Smith - Smith is the most important player to keep an eye on during this Fall League season. I will be monitoring a few things. The most important will be power numbers and batting average.

Mesa Solar Sox

Bobby Dalbec - The K rate has to come down.

Jahmai Jones - Trout needs help. Jones must have a good showing.

Josh Ockimey - Josh is under the radar. He won't be after if he performs well.

Glendale Desert Dogs 

Yu Chang - I love Cleveland hitters and will be looking for a good performance with a decrease in his K rate.

  1. I really enjoy your prospect analysis and check multiple times a week for new posts. Keep up the great work! Im not sure if you have an instagram page, but im going to give you a shoutout (my insta is


    1. Thanks DC. I have thought about joining instagram. Are you on Twitter?

  2. Hey PFC, I love the write ups and enjoy the fact you love cards as much as the game itself. Now the the BC checklist is out when is the next write up coming?

    1. Thanks for the comment. I appreciate it a lot. The review will be up Sunday night.

  3. Who would you consider the better buy, Mark Vientos or Peter Alonso? I like both but cant decide which one I shoukd concentrate on more

    1. Hello Unknown. Thanks for the comment. This is a great question. Its all about a short term hold vs a long term one. Vientos is a good prospect but is years away so if you buy its a long term hold. Alonso is killing the AFL and should be in the Majors next year. I took a look at Ebay and he is still pretty affordable to be a high end prospect. If you are looking for returns in 2019 buy Alonso. If you want a long term hold to make profits later buy Vientos. He will be 19 during next season with tons of upside.
