One hot-hitting infielder and one flamethrower showed their skills as Giants prospects in Saturday's Arizona Fall League All-Star game, known as the Fall Stars Game.
Christian Arroyo, recently named the Arizona Fall League Player of the Week, batted leadoff for the AFL East. But, Arroyo moved over on the diamond from his usual position.
Listed as a shortstop this year for the San Jose Giants, Arroyo played second base, while A's prospect Chad Pinder was slotted at shortstop for the game full of top prospects.
Arroyo finished 1-for-2 with a single, and was also caught by Yankees catching prospect Gary Sanchez when trying to steal second base.
Arroyo is ranked as the No. 2 Giants prospect by MLB.com. Heading into Saturday, he's hit .340/.400/.566 with three home runs in 13 Arizona Fall League games.
On the hill to represent the Giants, was the injury-laden, but hard-throwing -- to say the least -- Ray Black.
Black, ranked as the Giants No. 19 prospect by MLB.com, threw a dominant scoreless inning. Blowing up the radar gun, his eight pitches were: 99, 98, 100, 99, 100, 101, 84, and 99 miles per hour.
The West defeated the East, 8-3.
