10/12 Arizona Fall League
The Mesa Solar Sox opened the Arizona Fall League season on Tuesday against the Phoenix Desert Dogs. None of the Cubs’ prospects were in the Sox’s starting lineup but on Wednesday night at HoHoKam Park, expect to see pitchers Jake Muyco, Chris Carpenter, Kyle Smith and David Cales all get some innings. Third baseman Josh Vitters, who missed most of the season because of a broken hand, also was expected to be in the lineup. Former Cubs catcher Casey Kopitzke is the Solar Sox manager.
