Although the Arizona Fall League features many of baseball’s top prospects, not every participant is regarded as a potential impact player in major leagues.

However, that’s precisely what makes the league so great: The AFL offers virtually unknown prospects a chance to significantly improve their stock against top-notch competition. 

A perfect example is St. Louis Cardinals left-hander Kevin Siegrist, the team’s 41st-round selection in the 2008 draft.

Fresh off a solid 2012 regular season between High-A and Double-A, Siegrist put himself on the Cardinals’ major league radar with an outstanding performance in the Arizona Fall League. Appearing in six games (five starts), the southpaw registered a 2.37 ERA with 27 strikeouts in 19 innings.

These days, Siegrist serves as the top left-handed arm out of the bullpen for the recently crowned National League champions, though his World Series debut on Wednesday night could have gone better.

Anyway, here’s a look at 10 under-the-radar AFL prospects with major league upside.
