Prospects To Get In On Before the Arizona Fall League
Chris Clegg breaks down 5 prospects who could see their stocks soar in the Arizona Fall League.
The Arizona Fall League is always a fun time for prospect fanatics after the Minors League season ends. All eyes are on the players sent to Arizona, and often times we over-react to performances, forgetting players are often sent with specific things to work on.
Right or wrong, performance will always affect the way most people think about players values. Here are five players I think could see their consensus stock take a step forward this fall.

Bryan Ramos, 3B, CHW, 21, AA
Ramos’ 2023 season got started a bit late as he was dealing with a groin strain in the early part of the year. A short rehab stint in Single-A led to him Double-A where he spent 77 games and progressively improved throughout the year. Ramos Finished Double-A with a .272/.369/.457 slash with 14 HR in 77 games.
Ramos saw his 90th percentile exit velocity take a huge jump forward to over 106 mph while posting respectable contact rates. I moved Ramos into my top 100 in my August update, but a strong performance in the AFL likely causes the consensus to jump on board.
Justice Bigbie, OF, DET, 24, AAA
A 19th-rounder in the 2021 MLB Draft out of Western Carolina, Bigbie does not get a lot of respect in prospect circles despite having an incredible season. After moving from High-A all the way to Triple-A this year, Bigbie slashed .343/.405/.537 with 19 home runs and 45 extra-base hits in 485 plate appearances.
Bigbie makes respectable contact despite being an aggressive hitter and hits the ball with authority. Arizona seems like an ideal hitting environment for Bigbie to look rather impressive and improve his dynasty stock.
Jadiel Sanchez, OF, LAA, 22, A
Sanchez’s 2023 stat line is not the most impressive as he hit just 11 home runs as a 22-year-old in Single-A with a .297/.378/.475 slash. Sanchez has an intriguing frame at 6’2”/185 and a swing that could allow him to tap into more power. Sanchez ran an 82 percent contact rate this year and posted a walk rate north of 10 percent.
I'm not saying that Sanchez will be a fantasy star, but he could be someone who jumps on more radars after the fall.
Max Muncy, SS, OAK, 21, AA
Muncy has not lived up to the billing of the first-round selection he was in the 2021 draft, but he has taken small strides forward each season, especially in Double-A this year. For the year, Muncy hit ten home runs and stole 13 bases while slashing .275/.353/.411, but his Double-A numbers were even better.
The contact rates took a huge step forward in the second half, going from 66.5 percent through June 30 to 73 percent from July 1 forward. Muncy may never be a huge fantasy asset, but he could rebuild his stock in Arizona.
David McCabe, CI, ATL, 23, A+
McCabe was a player I saw several times this year, and at first glance, he is just one of those who looks like he has the it factor when he gets off the bus. Standing at 6’3”/230 lb, McCabe may seem like he is fully a power over hit type, but you might be surprised that he ran an 80 percent contact rate that jumped to 84 percent in the second half.
He does hit the ball hard despite the 17 home runs, maybe feeling a bit disappointing in the 123 games he played this year. McCabe was hamstrung by the fact that 81 of the games were spent in High-A Rome, where his home park was one of the worst-hitting environments in the Minors. If he carries the contact skills to Arizona with him, you can expect the power to be there.
