Braves: Keshawn Ogans, SS (Unranked), Salt River Rafters

Pirates: Carter Bins, C (Unranked), Salt River Rafters
Bins may be a glove-first catcher, but his bat has been red-hot in the desert. The 25-year-old clubbed his first homer of the fall campaign on Oct. 10, and hasn’t slowed down since. He recorded his third multhit game in seven contests and his second three-hit performance. Bins got going early, swatting an RBI single in the opening frame and following that up with a double in his next at-bat. In limited appearances, the Fresno State product has posted a .357 BA and 1.079 OPS.
Reds: Jacob Hurtubise, OF (Unranked), Surprise Saguaros
Hurtubise drove in three runs to help lead Surprise to victory. The 2019 39th-round pick got going with a run-scoring single in the sixth. He came up huge for the Saguaros in his next at-bat, swatting a game-tying two-RBI double in the eighth to set up the eventual go-ahead runs. Hurtubise is coming off a season in which he posted a .961 OPS between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Louisville.
Rockies: Sterlin Thompson, OF (No. 6), Salt River Rafters
Thompson’s 55-grade hit tool has been on full display this fall. The 22-year-old added to his already impressive campaign with three more hits, all coming in the first four innings. Thompson added an RBI in the ninth on a sacrifice fly. The 2022 first-round pick has been on a roll since the Fall League began, recording a hit in 12 of his 14 games, including six multihit performances.
Tigers: Justice Bigbie, OF (No. 21) Salt River Rafters
In a game that featured 33 hits between the two teams, Bigbie was the lone batter to deliver a four-knock night, his fourth multihit game this fall. The performance was Bigbie’s strongest of the season and raised his average a whopping 57 points from .256 to .313. The outfielder used the entire field with two singles going to center, one to the left side and one to the right. The 24-year-old climbed from High-A to Triple-A in 2023, posting a combined .943 OPS across three levels.
