Arizona Fall League Roundup: Jerry Sands Hits First AFL HR

Here is Saturday's AFL roundup, but first we have a tweet from ESPN's Jason Grey on Dodgers hitting prospect Jerry Sands from Saturday's action:

@Jason_Grey #Dodgers Jerry Sands hits a bomb to straight-away center - hits halfway up batter's eye over the 410 sign on a night ball not carrying well 32 minutes ago

Sands hit his first HR in the AFL, after hitting 35 during the regular season. As a Dodgers fan, I have high hopes for Sands, as the Dodgers need a power hitter in their lineup in the next year or two. He hit .301-.395-.586 with 35 HRs, 95 RBIs and 18 SBs between Low A and AA in 2010, but for some reason, the prospect experts are not high on him. 

Let's take a look at Saturday's top performers:

Josh Harrison, PIT-2-5, 2 RS, 2B, RBI, 2 SB

Josh Vitters, CHC-1-5, RS, 2 SB

Andrew Lambo, PIT-2-5, RS

John Tolisano, TOR- 3-4, 3 RBI

Jose Iglesias, BOS-2-5, RS

Jason Kipnis, 4-4, RS, 3 2B, 3 RBI

Mike McDade, TOR-3-5, 3 RS, 3B

Bryce Harper, WAS-0-3, RS, BB, SB

Conor Gillaspie, SFG-3-4, RS, HR, 2 RBI, SB

Zack Cox, STL-2-4, 2 RS, HR, RBI

Johnny Giovotella, KC-2-4, RS, HR, RBI

Cale Iorg, DET-3-4, 2B

Jerry Sands, LAD-1-2, 2 RS, HR, 2 RBI, BB

Trayvon Robinson, LAD-2-3, RS, 2B, RBI, BB, SB

Stephen Parker, OAK, 2-3, RS, 2B, HR, 3 RBI

Here is a very interesting tweet from Baseball America's Ben Badler on the day that saw the Marlins deal outfielder Cameron Maybin to the Padres for two relievers:

Cameron Maybin is five months younger than Desmond Jennings (and one day younger than Jason Kipnis)

I was shocked when I read that. He, as many have said, was rushed by the Marlins a few years ago. As a Maybin owner in an NL-only keeper league, I hope he can turn things around.
