Each Major League Baseball team sends six top prospects to the Arizona Fall League, 180 players in all. Each August, Major League clubs hold a position draft to determine the players who will go to Arizona. Most are Double-A and Triple-A Minor League players. Each club can opt to send one player considered a Class-A player.
