Preview: Top Prospects Russell & Muncy Lead A’s Arizona Fall League Squad

AFLWhile the fall is an important time for A’s players and fans alike when it comes to post-season play, it’s also an important time for some of the minor leagues’ top prospects. And as the A’s begin Game #4 of their American League playoff series against Detroit on Tuesday, some of the team’s top prospects will begin play in the Arizona Fall League.

The league has been going strong for the past couple of decades now, and its schedule runs for about 6 weeks from early-October through mid-November. There are 6 teams in the AFL, with each team comprised of prospects from 5 different organizations. A’s prospects will be playing for the Mesa Solar Sox this year, where they’ll be joined by prospects from the Cubs, Nationals, Tigers and Angels.

The attendance at AFL games typically tops out at around 200 or so, with the crowds comprised of a healthy dose of scouts, agents, and various professional baseball personnel. Most organizations use the AFL as an opportunity to get some of their top prospects a little more live game action to hopefully help advance their development.

The A’s AFL pitching contingent this year will be comprised of minor league relievers like right-handers Ryan Dull and Seth Frankoff and left-handers Jeff Urlaub and Omar Duran, while some of the team’s top hitting prospects will be seeing some action in Arizona, including shortstop Addison Russell, first baseman Max Muncy and catcher David Freitas.
