Arizona Fall League Prospect Report — October 27, 2021

Mike Siani, OF, Reds — Siani is, ahem, Red hot. The Cincinnati prospect followed a four-hit day on Monday with a second one on Tuesday. This time, he showed a little more impact. Tuesday's effort featured a very long home run at Scottsdale Stadium as well as a double and a pair of singles. He also scored four times and drew a pair of walks. The AFL in 2021 is playing like an extreme hitter's league, and Siani has taken great advantage of the conditions over the past two days.

Nathan Eaton, OF, Royals — Very quietly, Eaton is having one of the best early starts to the AFL. The VMI alum, who was drafted by Kansas City in the 21st round in 2018, collected three hits—including a double—in six trips on Monday. That effort brings his AFL line to a cool 13-for-27 with five doubles and a triple. His regular season was limited to 70 games at High-A Quad Cities and a few more rehab outings in the Arizona Complex League.

Justin Foscue, 2B, Rangers — There are some in the Texas organization who believe Foscue is the system's best offensive prospect. Games like the one he had on Tuesday are evidence for that argument. Foscue went 3-for-6 for Surprise with a home run—his second of the AFL. His regular season was marred by injury, but when he was on the field he put together one of the more prodigious power runs in the minors. From July 8-23 he hit home runs in eight consecutive games, including a multi-homer effort on July 16.

Ezequiel Duran, INF, Rangers — This ... dude ... is on fiiiiiire. The infielder, acquired from the Yankees in the Joey Gallo deal, leads the AFL in both triples (4) and extra-base hits (9). He added to both of those ledgers on Tuesday with a 2-for-5 day with a triple and two runs. In the early going, Duran has a case as the MVP of the first half of the AFL. The other candidate is ...

Bryson Stott, SS, Phillies — Philadelphia's top hitting prospect has answered the bell in the AFL. The 2019 first-rounder went 4-for-6 and finished a longball shy of the cycle on Tuesday. Stott, who moved from High-A to Triple-A in the regular season, has been molten in the desert. The effort on Tuesday pushed him to second in the league in batting average behind only Spencer Torkelson (who has since left the league after spraining an ankle), third in on-base percentage and seventh in slugging percentage. His 14 hits are one behind Cubs prospect Nelson Velazquez.
