Corey Seager was among eight Dodgers listed on the preliminary rosters for the Arizona Fall League, an off-season development circuit for the majors’ top prospects.

Seager, the Dodgers’ first-round draft pick in 2012, will play for the Glendale Desert Dogs, based out of Camelback Ranch. He’ll be joined by catchers Pratt Maynard and Chris O’Brien (Rancho Cucamonga), outfielder Brian Cavazos-Galvez (Chattanooga), and four Dodgers pitchers to be named later.

Seager, 19, was promoted from low-A Great Lakes to high-A affiliate Rancho Cucamonga at midseason and batted .165 with four home runs in 21 games after the promotion. With Great Lakes, the shortstop batted .309 with 12 homers in 74 games.

Minnesota Twins outfield prospect Byron Buxton, who was chosen the number one prospect in all of baseball by Baseball America, is also on the Desert Dogs’ roster.

Jeff Smith, a coach in the Twins’ organization, will manage the squad. The AFL begins play on October 8.
