Anthony Gruppuso-USA TODAY Sport

The Arizona Fall League begins its season on October 8 and goes until November 14. The White Sox have sent  RHP Chris Bassit, LHSP Charlie Leesman, LHP Stephen McCray, RHP Kevin Vance, INF Micah Johnson, SS Marcus Semien, OF Brandon Jacobs and OF Jared Mitchell to play for the Glendale Desert Dogs, along with prospects from the Dodgers, Marlins, Reds and Twins. Jacobs is a "taxi-squad" player and will only be available for certain games.

The Venezuelan Winter League starts play on October 10.  Trayce Thompson and Andy Wilkins will play for Tiburones La Guaira. Carlos Sanchez is likely to play for the Tiburones, as well.  Avisail Garcia has played for Caribes de Anzoategui in the past. Nestor Molina has played for Cardenales de Lara in the past.

The Dominican Winter League starts play on October 18. The 2013 Rookie Draft had RHP Euclides Leyer going to Tigres Del Licey, RHP Fracellis Montas and RHP Braulio Ortiz to Leones Del Escogido and LHP Jefferson Olacio to Toros del Este. This does not mean that they will play, simply that they are now property of those teams.

Alejandro De Aza is confirmed to be playing for the Toros. Frank de los Santos is on the Toros' roster; RHP Simon Castro is on the Tigres' roster, Leury Garcia is on the Gigantes del Cibao roste (and is expected to play)r; and Santos Rodriguez is on the Leones' roster.

The Puerto Rican Winter League begins in November. Hector Santiago has played for Gigantes de Carolina in the past..
