Dodgers News: Seven L.A. Prospects Named to Arizona Fall League Roster

The Dodgers announced on Friday that seven players from their minor-league system will be playing for the Glendale Desert Dogs of the Arizona Fall League next month.

The seven Dodgers named to the Desert Dogs are:

  • Infielder Jorbit Vivas
  • Outfielder Andy Pages
  • Outfielder Jose Ramos
  • RHP Hyun-Il Choi
  • RHP Tanner Dodson
  • LHP Ben Harris
  • RHP Emmet Sheehan.

Vivas is on the Dodgers’ 40-man roster, and a few of the others are likely 40-man additions this offseason.

The AFL is a showcase circuit for baseball’s top young talent, with games beginning October 3 and concluding with the AFL Championship Game on November 12.

Every MLB team sends seven of their best prospects to fill the AFL rosters. The six teams in the league draw players from five teams each. This year, the Desert Dogs are represented by the Dodgers, White Sox, Reds, Twins, and Brewers.

Last year’s AFL featured some big names in Dodgers prospects, including top pitching prospect Bobby Miller and 40-man roster hitters Jacob Amaya and James Outman. Miller made waves in the 2021 AFL, helping him to vault to the top of the Dodgers’ prospect rankings.

Some notable non-Dodgers will be playing for Glendale this fall, too. Noelvi Marte, who came to the Reds from the Mariners as the key piece in the Jose Castillo trade, and Austin Martin, sent from the Blue Jays to the Twins last year for Jose Berrios, will man the infield at Camelback Ranch. Former Dodger Daryle Ward, an 11-year MLB veteran whose father, Gary, spent 12 years in the big leagues, will be a member of the Desert Dogs staff, as will Dodgers minor league athletic trainer Chelsea Willette.
