Arizona Fall League Opens Today

Just a quick reminder. You can find information about the league at the MLB.com AFL site here. The Rays players are a part of the Peoria Saguaros, and they are:

*Jeremy Hall
*Alex Cobb
*Sergio Espinosa
*Neil Schenk
*Jose Ruiz
*Henry Wrigley
*Leslie Anderson

Look for Cobb to be in the rotation, Espinosa and Schenk to work out of the bullpen, and Hall to potentially fill a swing-man type roll as he can either start or relieve. Jose Ruiz will play exclusively 1B, while Leslie Anderson is likely to split time between 1B and the OF (he's listed on the roster as a OF). And Henry Wrigley will see plenty of time at 3B.


  1. Cobb is listed as tonight's starter. Game time is 6:35 MST, which I think is 8:35 EST. Something tells me most of us will be busy watching another game right around that time :).

  2. Venezuelan Winter League and Mexican-Pacific League also begin play tonight. I searched the published rosters and here is the Rays players I found posted so far. There were two teams in the Mexican-Pacific League that I could not get to load.
