Arizona Fall League

Another edition of the AFL was completed, and Triston Casas finished in style. The system's top-ranked player reached base five times on Tuesday, going 2 for 2 with three walks. A 1-for-3 performance on Wednesday in his final appearance left him with a .495 on-base percentage, top in the circuit among players with 50 plate appearances. Jeter Downs, who got off to a scorching start before slumping, finished with a solid 3-for-7 effort on the week. Christian Koss was 1 for 3 with a walk and a stolen base, while Kole Cottam was 1 for 5 in his lone start. 

Two pitchers saw an inning apiece. Brendan Cellucci struck out one in a scoreless frame on Tuesday. AJ Politi followed with a shutout inning of his own the next day, earning the save in Scottsdale's victory. The team's two top-ranked hurlers, Connor Seabold and Josh Winckowski, did not see action.

Victor Santos joined Cordero with Escogido, allowing one run on two hits in 1 1/3 innings in his only appearance. Kutter Crawford started Wednesday for Estrellas, giving up one run on six hits in 4 2/3. It was the first run Crawford has surrendered in four starts, with his ERA increasing to 0.49. Joan Martinez also appeared in one game, allowing two runs on two hits in 2/3 of an innings, striking out one.
