Arizona Fall League 10-10-14 Update (basically the Corey Seager update)

October 10, 2014

The AFL opened this week and so far two games have been played.  All eyes are on how the Dodgers use Corey this fall. Will he play all his games at SS? Will he start the transition to 3rd? How the Dodgers perceive Seager probably determines what they do with the major league roster. Seager is going to be part of the Dodgers plans as soon as 2016, and very well could force his way onto the 2015 roster if the need should arise.

Do the Dodgers offer Hanley a qualifying offer for 2015? If they do and he declines is Erisbel Arruebarrena the answer in 2015?  Can the defense of Erisbel offset the lost offense of Hanley? If Erisbel is the answer does that make Corey Seager a 3rd baseman? If Erisbel is not the answer do they find another answer for 2015, or wait for Corey Seager? Had to imagine a team whose only goal is a World Champion using a rookie SS at any point. Yet Corey Seager is not just any prospect.  At this point the 20-year-old Seager could be argued to be the best position prospect the Los Angeles Dodgers have ever had. I’ll start making that argument sometime next week.

For now, back to the AFL.

In the first AFL game, Corey played SS, batted 3rd, and collected two doubles, and two walks. Scott Schebler played LF and went 1 for 4. Darnell Sweeney played 2nd base and also collected two hits, both singles.  Sweeney also made an error.

The second game (rained out on Wednesday) had Scott Schebler as the only Dodger position prospect to play and he went hitless in four at bats. Matt Magill got eight outs in relief, giving up zero earned runs, with one walk and four strikeouts. Blake Smith finished up with one inning.
