The Blue Jays are sending 6 players to the Arizona Fall League, to play on the Salt River Rafters. The five are Rowdy Tellez,  Roemon Fields, Matt Dean, Justin Shafer, Chad Girodo and Brady Dragmire.

Fields played in 3 levels of the Jays farm system this year, spending most of the season in Dunedin, but also playing in New Hampshire and a few games in Buffalo. In all he hit .263/316/.322 in 113 games, with 2 home runs, 34 walks and 87 strikeouts. His selling card is his speed, he stole 42 bases, caught 14 times. He's 24, turns 25 in November.

Shafer has split time between Lansing and Dunedin, and has split time between the rotation and the bullpen, starting 11 games and relieving in 16. In all, he has a 4.33 ERA. In 89.1 innings he's allowed 93 hits, 30 walks and 52 strikeouts.
