2015 Arizona Fall League Participants Announced

image

This year’s crop of seven initially named eight Milwaukee Brewers prospects participating in the annual Arizona Fall League include three who weren’t even a part of the organization 32 days ago.

Brewers prospects will be a part of the Surprise Saguaros roster in 2015. They last were a part of that squad in 2013. In 2012 and 2014, the Brewers prospects were Desert Dogs. (Maybe next year will bring something new and exciting.)

Farmhands from the Kansas City Royals, New York Yankees, St. Louis Cardinals, and Texas Rangers will work alongside those of the Brewers as members of the Saguaros this year.

By position, here are those players and some supplemental information:
