Arizona Fall League Cubs Announced: Jimenez, Happ, Underwood, Caratini, More

Chicago Cubs News, Cubs Minor Leagues and Prospects

We’ll have to dig in on this a bit more soon, but I wanted to get the announcement in front of you quickly. The post-season prospect-packed Arizona Fall League announced its rosters today, and there are a bevy of Cubs prospects to see on the Mesa club:

  • Eloy Jimenez, OF
  • Ian Happ, OF/2B
  • Victor Caratini, C
  • Duane Underwood Jr., RHP
  • Stephen Perakslis, RHP
  • Ryan McNeil, RHP
  • James Farris, RHP

That’s a huge honor for Jimenez, who dominated this year, but only at Low-A. And he’s just 19.

It’s great to see Happ and Caratini in there, as both have had great years and are on the near-term radar. The pitching group includes injury recoveries, and older, possibly-fast-moving reliever types, which is often what you see in the offense-heavy AFL.

All right. As I said, more soon. But that’s the group. Woo. The AFL starts October 11.
