This past weekend marked the official “halfway point” of the Arizona Fall League schedule, at least for the seven Yankees involved in the autumn exhibition.

The Scottsdale Scorpions played the 16th and 17th games of their 32-game schedule on Friday and Saturday respectively, ending the first half with an 8-4 loss to Mesa and beginning the second by tying Phoenix 8-8 for their first draw of the season.

The Arizona Fall League does not convene on Sundays, so as of Monday morning, Scottsdale’s record remained at 8-8-1, putting them one game behind the 9-7-1 Salt River Rafters for first place in the AFL East Division.

Of the septet of Yankees prospects playing under Scorpions manager Carlos Mendoza, the hurlers in particular are part of a pitching staff that is second in the six-team AFL in runs and earned runs allowed, leads the league in shutouts, and has given up the least home runs in the league.

Below are the lines for the seven Baby Bombers turned Scorpions so far this fall through 17 games:
