Arizona Fall League Update

I somehow missed this along the way, but RHP Nick Tropeano was added to the list of players who will be participating in the Arizona Fall League for the Astros. The complete list of Astros players on the Mesa Solar Sox team is as follows:

RHP Jarred Cosart
RHP Chia-Jen Lo
LHP Alex Sogard
RHP Nick Tropeano
SS Jio Mier
1B Jon Singleton
OF Bobby Borchering
OF George Springer

My understanding is that seven of the players will be on the active roster and one player will be on a taxi squad and only available for games on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Note that Borchering is listed on the roster as an outfielder, although he played 3B for the Hooks after he came to the Astros organization this year. Also note that Lancaster JetHawks Manager Rodney Linares will be managing the team. The other teams represented on the Solar Sox are the Dodgers, Cubs, Orioles and Tigers. The complete roster can be found here. And the schedule can be found here.

Check back after the season starts on October 9th as I will be recapping the performances of the Astros players participating in both fall and winter leagues.

  2. Jio Mier will be the player on the taxi squad. I will be in Arizona for the 1st week of the AFL...if I could assist you in anyway, let me know. I will see 10 games over 5 days, including the 5 Mesa Solar Sox games.
