Arizona Fall League roster finalized

Reported a few days ago that it was going to include Ivan De Jesus, Lucas May, Andrew Lambo and Scott Elbert. It will be rounded out by Justin Orenduff, Travis Schlichting and Brent Leach, and the “taxi squad” — these are extra guys who are only allowed to play on Wednesdays and Saturdays — will consist of Russell Mitchell and Jamie Hoffman. You can look all those guys up on milb.com, and a lot of you already know who they are, but suffice to say, they are ALL legit prospects. If they weren’t, they wouldn’t be headed to the AFL, which is reserved for the elite prospects around baseball. The Dodgers contingent will play for Surprise. … According to an item in today’s Washington Times, when Greg Maddux takes the hill for the Dodgers tonight, he will become the first 350-game winner to pitch in Washington since Walter Johnson’s final appearance of his career on Sept. 22, 1927. Only one other 350-game winner has ever pitched here is some guy named Cy Young, who last pitched here on July 29, 1911.

    DeJesus, Lambo and Elbert are the only top prospects in that group.

    Yeah. The AFL is far more than a league for just “legit prospects”. Jamie Hoffman is about as legit a prospect as Tony.
