In 2014, the Salt River Rafters won the Arizona Fall League title. Prospects from the Minnesota Twins were one reason they were the best team in the league. Zack Jones and Jake Reed were used regularly in relief, posting ERAs of 0.00 and 0.71 respectively. Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario excelled on the position player side, with Rosario just missing out on the league's batting title.
This year's crop of prospects aren't quite as exciting, but Reed and Taylor Rogers have returned surrounded by a number of players worth following. If you haven't done so, check out our AFL preview from last week.
Here's how Minnesota's seven players have performed so far.

Through five games, the Scottsdale Scorpions are 3-2. Rogers started the second game of the season. Walker has started four of the club's five contests, two in left field at two at designated hitter, all while hitting seventh. Turner and Garver have each started two games at catcher, with Cleveland's Jeremy Lucas getting the other look. But unlike Hildenberger and Reed, Nick Burdi has yet to make his AFL debut in 2015.
We'll continue to track the progress of all seven players as the Arizona Fall League continues. Who are you the most interested in seeing succeed this year?
