After a stellar campaign in the Arizona Fall League, Arizona Diamondbacks No. 4 prospect (MLB No. 96) Seth Beer was named to the All-Arizona Fall League Team.

The honor recognizes the top-performing prospects at each position who represent the MLB teams they are affiliated with in both the American and National Leagues.

Beer, a first baseman who was acquired at the trade deadline in the Zack Greinke deal, finished the AFL with a .315/.375/.452 slash. He recorded 23 hits including five doubles, a home run and 12 RBI.

His performance also landed him on a list of the hottest Fall League prospects by Baseball America.

A member of the Salt River Rafters, the Clemson alumnus helped the team win this year’s AFL Championship Game, the team’s first championship since 2014.

Before even stepping on a Fall League field, the 2018 No. 28 overall pick by Houston quickly climbed the prospect ranks, advancing through two levels of the minor leagues in his first full season.

Playing High-A in Fayetteville (Astros); Double-A Corpus Christi (Astros) and Jackson (D-backs), Beer finished 2019 batting .289/.388/.516 with 130 hits, 26 home runs and 103 RBI.

Beer, along with second baseman Vidal Brujan (Rays), third baseman Royce Lewis (Twins) and pitcher Ashton Goudeau (Rockies) were the four Rafters selected to the All-Arizona Fall League Team.

University of Arizona alumnus and Astros No. 17 prospect, J.J. Matijevic was the runner-up at first base for the All-AFL team.
