Five Yankee prospects will participate in the 2012 Arizona Fall League for the Scottsdale Scorpions, the team affiliated with the Yankees and four other teams in the prestigious six-team league which features rosters full of top prospects. Opening day for the 2012 season will be in early October, and the usually runs until mid-November, when the two top teams will square off for the championship. I had penned an article for Examiner.com which gives a full breakdown of the five prospects who are headed off to Arizona.

For those who don’t care to read the article, the Yankees will be sending Zachary Nuding, Mark Montgomery, David Adams, Slade Heathcott, and Austin Romine to the Fall League. Romine topped out this year at Triple-A, while Slade Heathcott stayed in High-A Tampa. The other three players are all on the Trenton Thunder playoff roster.
