Let’s try something new tonight: a game thread discussion of the Arizona Fall League.
Tonight, the Surprise Saguaros (1-2) will be traveling to Salt River Fields to meet the Salt River Rafters (1-2).
The future Rockie to watch? Sterlin Thompson. Here’s how MLB.com summarizes his performance so far:
The 2022 first-rounder continued his hot hitting in the Fall League with a 3-for-4 outing that featured an RBI triple, a stolen base, a run scored and a walk. Through three games, Thompson has reached base in eight of his 12 plate appearances. His ninth-inning triple was a rocket, traveling 341 feet to center field at 96.4 mph and that was actually his softest hit of the day — his singles produced exit velocities of 98.1 and 100.3 mph.
Here are tonight’s lineups:
