Ryan Pope added to the Arizona Fall League
Pope was mentioned early as a candidate, but he wasn't on the roster when the season ended. Once Hector Noesi arrived, Pope was converted to the bullpen, and finished the year as the team's closer. He racked up 17 saves and struck out 62 in 57 1/3 IP.
Pope joins Austin Romine, Brandon Laird, Jose Pirela, George Kontos, Manny Banuelos and Craig Heyer on the Phoenix Desert Dogs roster. Coach Danny Borrell and trainer Scott DiFrancesco will also be on the coaching staff.
