Arizona Fall League plans

The Yankees have started to assign players to the Arizona Fall League. Their prospects will play for the Peoria Javelinas.

Outfielder Austin Jackson and infielder Kevin Russo are headed there. The Yankees have slots for another infielder and four pitchers.

The league starts play on Oct. 7 and runs through Nov. 22.

It’ll be interesting to see whether the Yankees use the AFL to build up innings for Phil Hughes, Ian Kennedy or Joba Chamberlain. The more innings they can build up now, the more they could be used next season.
