MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins uber prospect Byron Buxton headlines seven of the organization's minor leaguers who will take part in the Arizona Fall League. Buxton will be joined by pitchers Alex Meyer, Trevor May, A.J. Achter and Zach Jones, as well as infielders Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario. The 19-year-old Buxton has climbed quickly up the prospect rankings this year, his first full season since the Twins drafted him No. 2 overall in 2012. Entering Tuesday, Buxton was batting .328 with four home runs, 20 RBI and 20 stolen bases in 49 games for High-A Fort Myers. He hit .341 with eight homers, 55 RBI and 32 steals this season for Low-A Cedar Rapids before his promotion. Meyer and May were both acquired this past offseason in trades -- Meyer from Washington in exchange for outfielder Denard Span, and May from the Phillies along with Vance Worley for center fielder Ben Revere. The 23-year-old May is 9-9 with a 4.48 ERA in 26 starts for Double-A New Britain this year, while Meyer has been limited by injuries and has made just 12 starts (4-3, 3.41 ERA) for New Britain. On Tuesday, Rosario was named the Eastern League Player of the Week after batting .433 for New Britain. In 64 games with the Rock Cats since a midseason call-up, the 21-year-old second baseman has hit .291 with 34 RBI and 18 doubles. The Arizona Fall League begins on Oct. 8 and runs through Nov. 16.
