Several Fisher Cats will begin play on Tuesday in the prestigious Arizona Fall League. Known as a finishing school for some of the game's top prospects, the Fall League features six teams with prospects from each major league team scattered over the Arizona desert. Each year, several players from the Fall League open the next season in the major leagues. This list includes players like Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Ryan Howard, and many, many more.

This year's Fisher Cats contingent will join fellow Blue Jays prospects on the Salt River Rafters. They'll share the dugout with prospects from the Cardinals, Diamondbacks, Rays, and Rockies. 

Former Fisher Cats include:

  • RHP Marcus Stroman
  • RHP Drew Hutchison
  • RHP John Stilson
  • 3B Andy Burns
  • OF Kenny Wilson

Additional Blue Jays propsects - and future Fisher Cats - include:

  • RHP Aaron Sanchez (Dunedin in 2013)
  • C Derrick Chung (Dunedin)

We'll keep you up to date on how the Jays prospects are doing from Opening Day, Oct. 8, to the final game on Nov. 16. You can follow the daily scores right here.
