Minnesota Twins top prospect Byron Buxton will be a member of the Arizona Fall League, according to multiple baseball sources.

The Twins are expected to send another handful of players to the Fall League when rosters are officially released.

The 19-year-old phenom has hit .335/.426/.532 with 12 home runs and 75 RBIs across two levels. He's also scored 105 runs with 52 stolen bases, while playing for low-A Cedar Rapids and High-A Fort Myers.

The Fall League runs from Oct. 8 through Nov. 16 and invites annually some of the games brightest prospects. 

If Buxton starts off at Double-A next season, there's a chance he could be in a Twins uniform sometime later in the year.
