     Oakland A's Sending 7 to Arizona Fall League
A Texas League MVP, a recent first-round pick and a highly regarded mid-season acquisition are part of a group of talented Oakland A's prospects slated to play in the 2015 Arizona Fall League. Chad Pinder, Matt Chapman, Sean Manaea, Jaycob Brugman, Kris Hall, Aaron Kurcz and Brendan McCurry are the seven A's prospects currently scheduled to play in this year's Arizona Fall League. The AFL is a prospect showcase league that features many of the top up-and-coming talents from around Major League Baseball each fall.

The AFL announced its 2015 rosters on Tuesday. The A's have seven players set to suit up for the Mesa Solar Sox. The A's will join the Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Angels, Miami Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays as the teams contributing to the Solar Sox's roster. The Solar Sox will play their home games at Sloan Park, the spring training home of the Cubs. The season will run from mid October until late November.

Pinder heads to Arizona after a breakout 2015 campaign that saw him take home the award for top player in the Texas League. The A's 2013 competitive balance round A pick is batting .318/.363/.487 with a career-high 15 homeruns through Monday. Pinder will have the opportunity to show teams around baseball that his Texas League campaign wasn't a fluke. He is also likely to showcase his defensive versatility. Pinder, who played shortstop and third base in college, spent the 2014 season mostly at second base. He moved to shortstop full-time in 2015 and could see playing time at short, second and third this fall.
