In November, Tim McLeod visited the Arizona Fall League, and while a full scouting report won’t be coming this year, he took some photographs — tons of them in fact. Over the next few weeks, we will unveil our exhaustive collection of images of the top prospects at the AFL.

Brandon Maurer managed one win in six AFL starts, but emerged from the prospect showcase with a losing record.
Toronto Blue Jays starting pitcher prospect Drew Hutchinson continued to work his way back from Tommy John surgery, tossing five shutout innings of two-hit ball and flashing good velocity as part of a fine AFL in which he only gave up 10 runs (eight earned) in 21 2/3 IP.
Minnesota Twins second base prospect, Eddie Rosario, seen here taking a pitch that was a tad low, saw 20 games of AFL action, but struggled offensively.
Chicago White Sox outfield prospect Jared Mitchell has been trying to get his game back on track ever since a torn ankle tendon cost him all of 2010. In 20 games in the AFL, he put on a show, re-establishing himself as an up-and-comer.
Corey Seager’s strikeout rate at the AFL was a big concern and will need to be addressed before he reaches Double-A.
Marcus Semien is a fine base stealer, but he was thrown out on both his attempts in the AFL.
Stefen Romero failed to do much damage with his 66 AFL at-bats.
Pitching mostly in relief, Minnesota Twins starting pitcher prospect Trevor May performed well in the AFL, although he failed to earn a win.
Now it’s your turn. What do you think of Tim’s photos? Let us know in the comments below.
