The 8 best prospects to watch at the Arizona Fall League

The Arizona Fall League season kicks off Wednesday night with some of baseball’s best prospects ready to capitalize on their summers, make up for lost time or gain traction in the professional ranks.

The AFL is an interesting place where future rivals play as teammates, and where it’s not an open secret that development is the main goal.

The Triple-A championship, the official close of the minor league season, ended the night before AFL opening day, which was moved up from its usually October start date for its 28th installment.

Each MLB team sends about six prospects to make up the rosters for the six AFL teams. As games begin Wednesday night, here’s a look at some of the prospects to follow, which might be particularly alluring for some baseball fans whose big-league teams are already eliminated this season.

So, anyone think they’ll be swinging by to see the league play this year?
