Saturday Winter League Update

Arizona Fall League
Leslie Anderson went 2 for 4 and hit the game winning home run in the ninth inning of the Rising Stars Game.

Venezuelan Winter League
Jose Lobaton drew a walk and then later scored on his only plate appearance.

Mexican Pacific League
Justin Dowdy pitched a no-hit 1/3 of an inning, picking up a strikeout and a walk.
Elliot Johnson was 0 for 4 with a walk, run scored and 3 strikeouts.

Dominican Winter League
Chris De La Cruz was 1 for 1.


  1. Are the players for the AFL Futures game picked before or during the AFL season?

  2. During. Here is a press release I received describing how it's done: "Scouting and minor-league directors of every major-league organization, in consultation with Fall League Director Steve Cobb and his baseball personnel staff, selected the players for the showcase. Each major-league organization is represented by at least one player."

    Also players who are on the taxi squad (only play 2 days/week) and players who were not on opening day rosters are NOT eligible for the game.
