October 19th, 2023

Here's a look at Wednesday's top performers from the Arizona Fall League.

Mets: JT Schwartz, DH (Unranked), Glendale Desert Dogs
Schwartz isn't known for his power, but he's showing there is some thunder in his bat after all. The 23-year-old went deep for a second straight game, doubled and drove in three runs during a 3-for-4 performance for the Desert Dogs. Schwartz's first three-hit game this fall extended his hitting streak for to five games. The UCLA product has gone 8-for-20 (.400) with two homers, two doubles and seven RBIs over that stretch to increase his slash line to .324/.378/.559 in nine contests. More »

Marlins: Jacob Berry, 3B (No. 4), Peoria Javelinas
The hometown kid continues to amaze in the AFL. The Cortez, Ariz., native slugged his first Fall League homer and doubled as part of a three-hit afternoon for the Javelinas. Berry has 13 hits in nine games for the Javelinas, putting him among the leaders on the circuit. The 22-year-old amassed seven total bases in a single game just once in 107 contests between High-A Beloit and Double-A Pensacola this season.

Rays: Dominic Keegan, C (No. 9), Peoria Javelinas
Keegan cranked his third homer of the fall and added an RBI double in another eye-opening performance for Peoria. The 23-year-old backstop has hit safely in six of the seven games he's played, including four multihit efforts. Keegan is batting .400 with a 1.344 OPS, six extra-base hits and nine RBIs in seven Fall League games. More »

Red Sox: Corey Rosier, OF (Unranked), Glendale Desert Dogs
Rosier showed off his leadoff skills, setting the table for Glendale with three singles and a pair of stolen bases. The performance improved his slash line to .356/.396/.444 in 11 games. Rosier is tied for sixth on the circuit with 16 hits and has swiped five bases in six attempts.

Nationals: DJ Herz, LHP (No. 16), Scottsdale Scorpions
Herz put together a bounce-back performance against Surprise on the heels of an uneven start his last time out. After allowing three runs in his previous outing against Mesa, the 22-year-old struck out nine while giving up one run on one hit and four walks in four innings. Herz and Ricky Tiedemann (MLB No. 31) lead the circuit with 18 strikeouts.

Phillies: Gabriel Rincones Jr., OF (No. 9), Scottsdale Scorpions
Oliver Dunn, 2B (Unranked), Scottsdale Scorpions
Matt Kroon, 3B (Unranked), Scottsdale Scorpions
A trio of Phillies proved instrumental on the offensive side of things for the Scorpions. Rincones Jr. helped set the table from the two-hole, collecting his first triple and reaching base four times during a three-hit night. The 22-year-old scored three times, drove in a pair of runs and stole a base. He is batting .348 with a 1.048 OPS and eight extra-base hits while his five doubles and 16 hits rank among the Fall League's best.

One spot above Rincones in the lineup was Dunn, who continues to be a sparkplug as the leadoff hitter. The 26-year-old tripled, doubled, scored three runs and walked twice. Dunn, who swiped a bag and has been a perfect nine-for-nine in stolen-base attempts while hitting safely in all eight of his games, is batting .419 with a 1.320 OPS. His .514 OBP is the fifth-highest mark on the circuit.

Kroon enjoyed a four-hit night as he picks up the pace after a slow start to the fall campaign. The 26-year-old drove in a pair of runs, scored once and has nine hits in his last 15 at-bats after beginning the season 0-for-15. Kroon has collected six RBIs -- two in each of his past three games -- and is batting .300/.405/.433. More »

Rangers: Cameron Cauley, SS (No. 13), Surprise Saguaros
Cauley picked up a pair of hits, including a three-RBI double that highlighted a six-run frame for the Saguaros. The RBIs were the 20-year-old's first of the fall season. Cauley has hit safely in five of his last six games after beginning the campaign hitless in 18 at-bats.

Pirates: Carter Bins, C (Unranked), Salt River Rafters
Bins continues to make the most of his opportunities for Salt River. The 25-year-old racked up three hits Wednesday, including his second Fall League home run and a double. Bins is slugging .684 in five games, the second-highest figure among catchers on the circuit.
