Arizona Fall League set to begin
By Adam Rubin
Several Mets prospects, including Jeurys Familia, begin play with the Scottsdale Scorpions in the Arizona Fall League on Tuesday night.
Familia was limited to 19 2/3 innings this season between the majors and minors because of a bone spur in his pitching elbow that required surgery to remove.
The other AFL participants: right-handers Chasen Bradford, Hansel Robles and Cody Satterwhite, catcher Cam Maron, infielder Aderlin Rodriguez and outfielder Cory Vaughn.
The group will play along with prospects from the Braves, Giants, Pirates and Yankees.
Luis Rivera from the Mets will serve as hitting coach.
