Arizona Fall League Roundup: Brad Collmenter Ks 9 in 4 Innings

Before I get to the roundup, here is a tweet from ESPN's Jason Grey, responding to a question about who will get more saves in 2011-Craig Kimbrel or Kenley Jansen. Here is Grey's response:

@keithlaw @chickenkller26 - Braves want Kimbrel to seize job; situation for Jansen is more murky, so probably Kimbrel;needs to throw strikes

From Jayson Stark's Rumblings & Grumblings article on ESPN on Wednesday, a scout had this to say about Giants prospect Brandon Belt:

On Giants 1B Brandon Belt: "You can have Brett Harper. Give me that kid. He's got a chance to be Larry Walker. Athletic. Powerful. Good defender. And he hits the ball line-to-line with thunder.
