Arizona Fall League 2015: Names to Watch

Arizona Fall League returns this October and promises some of the best prospects since Mike Trout and Bryce Harper rolled through town. 25 of’s top 100 prospects will be suiting up in Arizona this fall, headlined by J.P Crawford, Adam Brett Walker and Jurickson Profar.

J.P Crawford: Drafted straight out of high school in 2013, Crawford is a highly touted prospect in the Phillies organization. Everything about Crawford’s game points to a bright future in the Majors as a leadoff man. He puts the ball in play, gets on base and is a 40-steal threat. Pretty good for a 20 year old…

Adam Brett Walker: The Minnesota Twins have already promoted prospects Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano. Next in line is Adam Brett Walker. Think Adam Dunn type prospect with tons of power potential, but lots of k’s and a low average. Even with the flaws, Walker cranked 31 home runs with 106 RBI this past season in AA. Those numbers are hard to ignore.

Jurickson Profar: Rarely does the Fall League see a prospect with two Major League seasons under his belt, but that’s the case for Profar. He hasn’t played in a game since the end of the 2013 season due to injuries, and will use the Fall League as a rehab stint. Don’t forget who we’re talking about though, once the number one prospect in baseball and the Texas Rangers savior at second base.
