I miss living in Arizona for many reasons, but one is the loss of easy access to the Arizona Fall League. This year, I just had a four-day, eight-game trip to scout the many prospects in that circuit. I did get to see every team's BP and two-thirds of the league's pitchers, so while it wasn't as much as I would have liked, it was enough to form some quick impressions and start some fresh evaluations.
Today I give you notes on the players who, in one way or another, stood out to me in a positive light, in most cases raising my opinions of those players. Two stipulations here:
1. I didn't see everybody, so the omission of any player isn't an indictment of his performance
2. The Fall League is a great place to scout, but sometimes players are tired or rusty from the layoff since the end of the minor league season, so the looks aren't always ideal.
