The New York Yankees sent eight prospects to the Arizona Fall League, and almost all are playing well with the Scottsdale Scorpions. The Scorpions (10-9-1) are in second place, 1 1/2 games behind Mesa. Let's see how the individual players are performing as the league gets set for Saturday's Fall Stars Game.

LHP Justus Sheffield (Yankees No. 4, No. 79 overall) has been dazzling in his AFL stint. In 19 innings, Sheffield holds a 2.37 ERA, has held batters to a .191 batting average and owns a spectacular 21:2 strikeout to walk ratio. Sheffield, another prize from the Andrew Miller deal from 2016, missed part of the regular season with a right oblique strain and logged just 93 1/3 innings at Double-A Trenton. Sheffield, 21, figures to begin the 2018 season at Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre considering his outstanding effort thus far. Sheffield will join Estrada and McKinney at the Fall Stars Game.
