Week 4 Arizona Fall League Cheat Sheet

Below is a list of the top five hitters and pitchers currently playing in the 2009 Arizona Fall League in each standard 5×5 fantasy baseball category.

We are now a month into the Arizona Fall League, and the league championship is only 10 days away. For fantasy baseball experts, watching the league is beneficial for finding prospects and sleepers for 2010. Keeper leaguers who need to make decisions about minor league rosters can also use fall league stats to evaluate a player’s value for future investment.

Similar to the WBC, the fall leagues seem to have something to gain for hitters. They face pretty talented pitching and are playing year-round in live-game situations. Pitchers who get hammered in the Fall Leagues probably won’t be on an invite list to Spring Training, but dominant pitchers in the Fall League could get overvalued.
