Jordan Lawlar, Bryan Woo Star On Arizona Fall League Opening Day



Jordan Lawlar, SS, D-backs – Lawlar went 2-for-3 with a home run, three runs scored, three RBIs and two stolen bases in Salt River’s 11-6 loss to Saguaro in the AFL opener. The dynamic shortstop took Pirates prospect Tahnaj Thomas deep for a three-run homer in the seventh inning to cap the Rafters’ scoring.

Bryan Woo, RHP, Mariners – The fast-rising Mariners prospect opened the Arizona Fall League with four no-hit innings and five strikeouts for Peoria. Woo walked one and hit one but didn’t allow anyone else to reach base.

Julio Rodriguez, OF, Mariners – Rodriguez returned from the injured list Monday and didn’t miss a beat. The Mariners center fielder went 3-for-4 with a double, a run scored and an RBI out of the leadoff spot in Seattle’s 4-3 loss to the Tigers. He is now batting .284 with an .851 OPS on the season and has two more games to add to his totals before leading the Mariners into the postseason.

Hunter Greene, RHP, Reds – Greene had an up-and-down rookie season, but he was able to finish it on a high note. The 23-year-old righthander pitched six scoreless innings with two hits allowed, one walk and eight strikeouts to earn the win in a 3-1 Reds victory over the Cubs. Overall, Greene posted a 0.78 ERA in his final four starts after returning from a shoulder strain.
