The 2015 Arizona Fall League

Mark Anderson and Wilson Karaman

The excitement builds as many top prospects ready themselves for the developmental spotlight of the AFL.

On October 13th, six teams filled with prospects will assemble in Arizona to continue their development under a slightly more concentrated light. It's a way for high-level prospects to get prepared for 2016 roles with major league teams, and a way for slightly less experienced players to get exposure to better arms and additional playing time. Last year's rosters featured players like Francisco Lindor, Addison Russell, Byron Buxton, Roberto Osuna, Taijuan Walker, Anthony DeSclafani, Rusney Castillo, Greg Bird, and others who have already made a major league impact, along with now cemented top prospects like Corey Seager, Tim Anderson and Trea Turner.

Who will use the AFL this year as a springboard to a successful 2016 season? Let's peruse the rosters below and find out.

Notes on Julio Urias, Alex Reyes, Roemon Fields and more.

Roemon Fields, OF, Toronto Blue Jays (Double-A New Hampshire)

At times, it is easy to fall into the trap of believing a prospect’s path from amateur ball to the big leagues is relatively standard; then we get snapped back to reality where every prospect’s path is wildly different. Enter, Roemon Fields. After first playing JUCO ball and then transferring to NAIA Bethany, where he ran track and played baseball, Fields was working for the Seattle Postal Service when the Blue Jays signed him out of an amateur exhibition series. Fields stands out for his lean body with fast-twitch athleticism, and his explosiveness on the field. An exceptional runner, Fields consistently got down the line in 4.01-4.08 seconds over the weekend, putting pressure on defenders every time the ball was in play, and he showed an ability to easily utilize his speed both on the bases and in center field. Fields is still raw at the plate, but he hung tough during at-bats, fouling off difficult pitches before finding one he could put in play; typically via a solid line drive or ground ball. At nearly 25 years old, Fields has a limited window to impress and reach the big leagues, and while his future likely resides on a major-league bench, if anywhere, he has some potential to develop into a top of the order, slap-hitting burner. While Fields has taken a unique path to Double-A since signing late in 2013, his journey becomes a nice secondary note after seeing him play for several games. – Mark Anderson

Fantasy Freestyle: Profiling Alex Reyes

1

Craig Goldstein

A scouting- and fantasy-based look at one of the top arms in the Cardinals system.

It’s not often you see a native of the U.S., much less New Jersey, signed in the international period, but that’s what took place when Alex Reyes left the states for the Dominican Republic. The Cardinals signed him for just under $1 million ($950,000) in December of 2012 and threw him right into Short-Season ball as an 18-year-old. It’s an aggressive assignment not to go through any complex leagues, but his familiarity with the U.S. likely played a part in their willingness to push him. Reyes started 2014 in Low-A, where he’s just under three years younger than the average player for the level, noteworthy because even if the production is mild, it would be considered a success based on his age relative to the level.

Reyes has received praise in the prospect community, and attention from dynasty leaguers thanks to a precocious skillset. That skillset remains unrefined though, and that bears itself out in the numbers. A 3.39 ERA is plenty to write home about from an 18 year old in Short-Season ball, but it’s worth nothing that along with his head-turning 27 percent strikeout rate, he produced an elevated 11 percent walk rate. Where he truly shined though is in limiting the long ball, as he allowed only one home run in 58 1/3 innings.
