The Arizona Fall League opened up on Tuesday and rising stars from across the league are aiming to showcase what they’re going to be bringing to the table in the future.
Chicago Cubs third base and outfield prospects Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler are already making noise in the Fall League. Bryant, who could be major league ready by the middle of next season or the beginning of 2015 is currently five for nine with five RBI’s in two games.
Bryant’s the number two overall draft pick from this years MLB Amateur Draft. In his first 36 minor league games he hit nine home runs and drove in 32 runs with a .336/.390/.688 batting line and is now lighting up some of the top prospects in the entire league.
He’s going to be a player that will make a lot of noise for this Chicago Cubs team looking to get on the post-season track and hopefully win a championship.
Outfielding prospect Jorge Soler hit a three run double in last night’s 13-3 win against the Glendale Desert Dogs. The 21 year old outfielder is coming off a fractured left tibia and could be looking at starting the season at the Double-A level.
Last season through 55 games, Soler hit eight home runs and drove in 35 RBI’s on top of a .28/.343/.467 batting line.
Mesa’s next game is today against the Salt River Rafters. I need to catch some of these games.
