Owen White, Duran & Foscue have strong AFL

The Surprise Saguaros needed a win against the Desert Dogs to make it to the Arizona Fall League Championship game. They sent Rangers right-hander Owen White to the mound- who without question was the best pitcher in the AFL (he won pitcher of the year). White didn’t disappoint and earned the 5-3 win to send the Saguaros to the Arizona Fall League Championship game.

The Texas Rangers sent seven players to the Surprise Saguaros to get more work in before the off-season. The Surprise Saguaros is made up of players from the Baltimore Orioles, Kansas City Royals, New York Yankees, Texas Rangers and the Washington Nationals.

White pitched 5 solid innings in what may have been one of his most impressive starts to me. He ran into some trouble in the top of the 3rd inning, the Desert Dogs scored three runs on four hits and a walk.

White made six starts in the Arizona Fall League and earned 5 wins, pitching 28.1 innings which almost matches the 33.1 innings he pitched with the Down East Wood Ducks.

Foscue, the Rangers 4th ranked prospect had a strong showing overall – particularly with his on-base percentage. He missed out on being selected to the Fall-Stars game.

Sam Huff

It became apparent during the Fall League that Huff had some sort of injury as he didn’t play in quite a few games. It was later reported that the Rangers shut him down due to a tweak of his surgically repaired knee. In his 46 games with the Double-A Frisco RoughRiders, he hit 10 home runs with 23 RBI and a .748 OPS. Five of his home runs were records this season as far as distance.
