Arizona Fall League Newsbeat

Cincinnati Reds’ Shed Long, who can be a ‘game changer,’ is working on his consistency

SCOTTSDALE, Arizona – A few hours before Shed Long made his debut in the Arizona Fall League Wednesday, Barry Larkin gave a scouting report of the 23-year-old second baseman.

He can hit for power. He can steal bases. He plays strong defense.

Batting leadoff for his Fall League team, Long showcased all of it. He went 1-for-4 with three RBI, two walks and one stolen base. The No. 8-ranked prospect in the Reds’ farm system by MLB.com, he’s trying to make the leap to the Majors.

Wonderful name that deserves to be remembered, if nothing else.

Rosters stacked with talent, including Vlad Guerrero Jr., as Arizona Fall League kicks off

Ronald Acuna Jr.’s grand slam on Sunday fueled the Atlanta Braves in their Game 3 win in the National League Division Series. A year ago this month, he was roaming the outfield for the Peoria Javelinas.

Acuna stands as the latest example of how the splendor of the Arizona Fall League never fully reveals itself until after the fact, by which point it becomes clear that the best players in the league are more than capable of starring at the game’s highest level.

The next wave of fall leaguers begin their season on Tuesday. As usual, the rosters are packed with talent – and this year’s might even be deeper than usual.

Feels a bit early for these sorts of articles, but, if they’re being written, we might as well link to them…..
