With the first week of play in the Arizona Fall League at an end, the Saguaros find themselves sitting at 2-2 tied for second in the West with the Peoria Javelinas. The Saguaros started off strong, winning their first two games of the league’s season, but lost their last two.

Offensively, Michael Ohlman who is a catcher in the Baltimore Orioles’ organization, leads the team with a .600/.750/1.400 slash line and one homer and one RBI. Behind him sits the Brewers’ outfielder Mitch Haniger who is sporting a .563/.588/.938 slash line with one home run and seven RBIs, the most on the team so far.

Jason Rogers, another Brewers’ outfield prospect, is hitting .286/.500/.429 while catching propsect Adam Weisenburger is 0-for-3 at the plate, but does have one walk and one strikeout.

From the mound, the Boston Red Sox’s Miguel Pena has not allowed a run in three innings of work while striking out a batter. Tyler Cravy, who is one of the Brew Crew’s four pitching prospects in the league, has pitched in three scoreless innings (two games) while allowing one hit and a walk.

Prospect David Goforth has been perfect out of the bullpen in two innings while Kevin Shackelford surrendered three runs in only two innings and currently has an ERA of 9.00. Schackelford has struck out four and allowed only one walk.

After three days off, today the Saguaros play at 2:35 p.m. ET / 1:35 p.m. CT against the Salt River Rafters who are 1-3. Taylor Jungmann, one of the highest ranked Brewers’ prospects, has yet to make an appearance in the league.
