Choice finishes off impressive AFL season

OAKLAND -- Arizona Fall League action concluded this week, with several players in Oakland's organization posting impressive results.

Top outfield prospect Michael Choice, the club's No. 1 pick in the 2010 Draft, finished with a .318 average, six home runs and 18 RBIs -- along with a 1.090 OPS -- in 66 at-bats spanning 17 games for the Phoenix Desert Dogs.

Leading the team in at-bats was fellow outfield prospect Grant Green with 107. He posted a .290 average with five homers, nine doubles and 19 RBIs while also progressing in his transition from shortstop to center field.

On the mound, right-hander Tyson Ross made seven starts, going 1-3 with a 5.94 ERA. Reliever Andrew Carignan, who, like Ross, spent time in Oakland this year, made 12 appearances, compiling a 6.57 ERA while striking out 16 in 12 1/3 innings.

A handful of other A's players are still in action in the Caribbean Winter Leagues, including first baseman Brandon Allen and pitchers Fautino De Los Santos, Graham Godfrey and Jordan Norberto.
