The Mesa Solar Sox defeated the Glendale Desert Dogs 9-3 on Thursday afternoon and clinched the Arizona Fall League’s East Division title.
Top Chicago Cubs’ prospects Albert Almora, Kris Bryant, Jorge Soler and others will play the Surprise Saguaros in the AFL Championship game at Scottsdale, this Saturday at 2 p.m. CT. The game will be televised on MLB Network.
Soler went 2-for-5, Bryant was 1-for-3 and Almora 0-for-1 before leaving the game with a reported minor injury. Almora was replaced by Zach Borenstein (Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim) who hit a two-run home run to spark the Sox offense.
MLB Pipeline.com’s scout and analyst Bernie Pleskoff followed up on Almora’s injury news on Twitter.
@CubsDen He may have tweaked something running to 1B. It doesn't look serious at all because he played another inning. No news here.

Bryant and Soler both had playoff experience this year when they won the Florida State League with Class A-Advanced Daytona. Tune in Saturday night for the last chance to see the Cubs top prospects and baseball before the winter.
