NOTE: The Venezuelan League (LVBP) and Dominican Winter League (LIDOM) had scheduled off days on Monday.

ARIZONA FALL LEAGUE (AFL) – SCOTTSDALE SCORPIONS

MESA SOLAR SOX 11, SCORPIONS 10

Jose Tena (2B): 2-5, 2 R, 1 K – Tena picked up where he left off prior to Sunday’s off day with his second consecutive multi-hit, multi-run game. For anybody at NORAD tracking Tena’s autumnal OPS through the stratosphere, it now stands at 1.067.

Richie Palacios (LF): 2-5, 1 R, 1 2B, 1 RBI, 2 K – While his OPS is just on the other side of 1.000 (.949), that doesn’t mean that Palacios hasn’t been spectacular at the plate in the AFL. Add in the fact that his spectacular defense has carried over from the summer to the fall and Richie has been one of the top prospects in the Valley of the Sun the past month.

Tanner Tully (SP): ND, 4 IP, 6 H, 6 R (all earned), 3 K, 2 HR allowed, 1 HBP – If I had to sum up Tully’s fall in two words, it would be “maddeningly inconsistent.” Hopefully, we see the fruits of his AFL experience when he returns to Arizona in the spring.

Aaron Pinto (RP): 1.2 IP, 1 H, 1 BB, 2 K – Pinto, on the other hand, has consistently improved as the fall has worn on and seems to be learning a lot from his AFL stint.
