AFL: Salt River Rafters @ Mesa Solar Sox, 9:35 p.m. ET
The Solar Sox will deploy No. 24 A’s prospect Colin Peluse, who owns a 2.25 ERA through 12 AFL innings. He blanked Surprise over three frames in his previous outing. It won’t be easy for the right-hander, though, as Salt River’s lineup is filled with powerful bats. Top Cardinals prospects Jordan Walker (MLB No. 6) and Masyn Winn (MLB No. 51) lead the way for the Rafters with 23 runs and 22 RBIs over 33 combined games.
AFL: Mesa Solar Sox @ Peoria Javelinas, 3:35 p.m. ET
Another impressive Oakland arm starts for Mesa on Friday, this time ninth-ranked J.T. Ginn. The right-hander put up four zeros against Surprise his past time out, and he’s held opposing hitters to a .195 batting average. Ginn gave up two runs to Peoria on Oct. 21, with Padres outfielder Tirso Ornelas (No. 18) and Mariners infielder Jose Caballero each tagging him for an RBI double. Washington catcher Drew Millas (No. 30) has been a force for the Javelinas, posting a .314/.333/.529 slash line through 13 games entering Thursday.
