Arizona Fall League Game Thread: Surprise Saguaros vs. Salt River Rafters

Since there’s no MLB action tonight, let’s check out what’s happening in the Arizona Fall League

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).

You may view the Saguaros’ roster here, and the Rafters’ roster here.

The future Rockie to watch? Sterlin Thompson. Here’s how 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.

Not bad.

Here are tonight’s lineups:

The lineups are listed here. Benny Montgomery will bat first, and Drew Romo will bat second.
