Arizona Fall League begins Tuesday
So, are you hurting for info about Orioles minor leaguers?
Rest easy, the Arizona Fall League, the elite prospect league sponsored by Major League Baseball, begins Tuesday.
MLB.com usually does a good job with updated information from the games.
The Orioles have nine prospects there -- all on the Scottsdale Scorpions, who also have players from the Arizona Diamondbacks, Colorado Rockies, San Francisco Giants and Washington Nationals.
Orioles prospects listed on the Scorpions roster are pitchers Oliver Drake, Pat Egan, Kam Mickolio and Wynn Pelzer, catcher Caleb Joseph, infielders Ryan Adams, Greg Miclat and Tyler Townsend and outfielder Xavier Avery.
Joseph and Townsend are listed as “taxi squad” players, meaning they’ll play only on Wednesdays and Saturdays. The league has games six days each week, with the championship game scheduled for Nov. 20.
The Scorpions play Peoria at 6:35 p.m. Tuesday, with Ryan Verdugo of the Giants' farm system starting against Alex Cobb of the Tampa Bay Rays’ system.
