Prospects Ready For Arizona Fall League
The Javelinas will be comprised of players from the Indians, Houston Astros, Toronto Blue Jays, Seattle Mariners and Boston Red Sox. Each of those clubs has one member of its organization on the team's coaching staff.
Among players assigned to Peoria are Koby Clemens, son of legendary pitcher Roger Clemens. He's a catcher-turned-infielder in the Astros' organization.
Dustin Ackley, the second overall choice by Seattle in 2009, returns for a second year in the AFL as he continues his transition from the outfield to second base.
That makes the position plenty crowded, since Kipnis also made that switch this year in the Indians organization after being Cleveland's second-round pick in 2009. Phelps also plays second base.
In 18 previous seasons, the AFL has featured more than 1,800 players who reached the majors, including 160 All-Stars. Seven players who won an MVP Award (Jason Giambi, Ryan Howard, Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Dustin Pedroia, Albert Pujols and Jimmy Rollins) along with three Cy Young winners (Chris Carpenter, Roy Halladay and Brandon Webb) played in the league.
