General MiLB: AFL Prospect Spotlight

Chris Welsh

Chris Welsh is the host of the fantasy baseball prospect podcast "Prospect One," the MLB, NFL and NBA In This League fantasy podcasts, and can be heard on the fantasy sports radio network.

The 26th Arizona Fall League kicked off Oct. 10. Known to many as a “finishing school”, the AFL plays host to a variety of different prospects – some on the brink of the majors, some who’ve already made it, and some who might be on their last shot. The ages vary, the oldest being 27-year-old Marlins shortstop Peter Mooney and the youngest being 18-year-old flame-throwing Padres pitcher Andres Munoz. From a talent perspective, the AFL is like a daily minor-league All-Star game.

I’m lucky enough to live in Arizona, and be within driving distance of each of the six ballparks that host AFL teams. I’ve been able to take in each team at least twice through the early part of the AFL season, and some up to seven times (I’m looking at you Peoria and Ronald Acuna!). In this look at the first couple of weeks of the AFL, I’m going to highlight some of the game's top prospects and touch on those who have really altered their prospect stock.
