Elijah Dunham stands out among Yankees’ three prospects in AFL Fall Stars Game
A trio of Yankees potential customers — OF Elijah Dunham, C Austin Wells and RHP Zach Greene — played Saturday in the Arizona Fall League (AFL) Fall Stars Video Game.
Amongst the 3, Dunham made the majority of an effect in spite of AFL West’s 6-5 loss to AFL East at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz.
Playing left field, Dunham’s diving catch on a shallow fly ball by JJ Bleday robbed the ultimate Fall Stars Video game MVP and leading Miami Marlins possibility of a leadoff single in the 3rd inning.
A highlight-reel grab by Dunham — the Yankees’ No. 24 general possibility, according to MLB Pipeline — stuck out from an 0-for-2 night at the plate.
Wells, on the other hand — the Yankees’ No. 6 general possibility, according to MLB Pipeline — suffered a strikeout in his only plate look. He got in for a pinch-hit scenario in the 6th.
Greene started out Chicago Cubs possibility Andy Weber to tape-record AFL West’s last out in the ninth inning.
