Arizona Fall League (AFL) action has been in full swing for three weeks now. The Peoria Javelinas, to which seven Philadelphia Phillies prospects are assigned, sit at 8-8 in the West Division. 

The Javelinas have gone 4-1 in the last week, and Bryson Stott has been a key contributor to Peoria's success. Let's check in on what him and the six other Phillies prospects have been up to in the last week.

SS Bryson Stott (no. 2): Stott's slashline is up to .346/.471/.481 through his third week in the AFL. He now has 18 hits, five doubles, a triple, 17 RBI, 15 walks, and a .952 OPS for his fall campaign.

C Logan O'Hoppe: Although Stott has largely stolen the show, O'Hoppe is right behind him offensively, and even slightly ranks above his teammate in slugging percentage (.511) and OPS (1.003). The catching prospect raised his average to .319, and his habit of walking (his 16 BBs lead the AFL) has resulted in an impressive .492 OBP.

LF Simon Muzziotti: Muzziotti has picked it up offensively in the last week, batting .293/.431/.317. He's up to 12 hits, a double, 11 RBI, and 10 walks on the season.

RHP James McArthur: The 6-foot-7 right-hander McArthur started his third game of the Fall on Nov. 1. He had a rough outing his last time on the mound, which saw his ERA balloon to 11.17. He's now allowed 12 runs on 14 hits and struck out 12 through 9.2 innings in the AFL.

RHP Hans Crouse (no. 3): In Crouse's third start of the Fall on Oct. 30, he struck out five through four innings of work. Senior writer for MLB Pipeline Jim Callis noted that Crouse's cutter/slider is "one of the most unhittable pitches in the Arizona Fall League, yet he also struggles to harness it."

Crouse's signature pitch, which Javelinas manager Anthony Contreras dubbed a "unicorn pitch," has resulted in 19 strikeouts, which leads Peoria. But he's also allowed nine runs in 11 innings. Either way, his unique delivery and tattooed appearance make him interesting to watch on the mound.

LHP Damon Jones: The 26-year-old Jones has had a solid Fall campaign thus far. His ERA sits at 1.50 through five games, with just one run allowed and five strikeouts across six innings.

LHP Erik Miller: Miller is up to a 4.50 ERA in three games in the AFL. He's struck out six batters and allowed three runs on five hits through four innings.
