Florida Marlins in the AFL

The Arizona Fall League is in full swing and John Raynor is trying to make some noise by hitting for the cycle on Friday.

John Raynor liked what he saw at the plate Friday.

"The ball was really looking big to me today," the Marlins prospect said after hitting for the cycle and driving in three runs to lead the Mesa Solar Sox to a 9-5 victory over the Surprise Rafters.

The 24-year-old center fielder went 4-for-5 with two runs scored to raise his fall average to .462 (6-for-13) through four games for the Solar Sox (2-2).

If you like to follow the young ones, our good friend Matt, aka Maverick, is doing at good job of covering the winter leagues at Future Fish.  So be sure to checkout his site out from time to time.  I must say, I completely agree with Matt about Thompson, it is way too early in his career to have him coming out of the pen.

Should you want to check on all the players cumulative stats, go no further than here:

Arizona is where it is at when it comes to watching the young players.  It was in the AFL that Dan Uggla first caught the eye of the Marlins baseball operations people.
