Arizona Fall League Notebook

BRYCE HARPER went 0-for-13 with four punchouts to start the Arizona Fall League, but the Scottsdale Scorpion finally broke out tonight. Harper doubled off A's prospect Tyson Ross, then homered on a 2-1 pitch against A's farmhand Anthony Capra, a lefty, for a two-run shot to left field. Going "Oppo-Taco" off a southpaw is an impressive feat, even at the homer-happy Phoenix diamond.

Chicago Cubs prospect Josh Vitters, a potential target for the Red Sox as compensation for Theo Epstein, has been raking (.405, 2 HR, 10 RBI) in the AFL. 

Blue Jays prospect Travis d'Arnaud, who suffered torn ligaments in left thumb, underwent surgery in Phoenix on Monday and should make a full recovery before spring training. d'Arnaud was playing for Team USA in Panama when he sustained the injury behind the plate, receiving a pitch. I spoke with one Blue Jays executive today who was optimistic about d'Arnaud's return.

Brazenhead is a great place to go with your family or for a business lunch or dinner, but if you are looking for a party atmosphere, this isn't it. Ask your local club to run this for you.
