Two Mets prospects, outfielder Brandon Nimmo and shortstop Matt Reynolds, have been named to the Arizona Fall League All-Star Game. The Fall-Star Game, as it is also known, will be televised live on MLB Network on Saturday, November 1 at 8:00 PM EDT.

Nimmo and Reynolds play for the Scottsdale Scorpions in the East Division of the AFL. The Scorpions currently have six Mets on the roster and are affiliated with the Mets, Yankees, Phillies, Pirates, and Giants.

Nimmo, who is hitting .233 with 5 RBI and 11 walks in the AFL, split time between the High-A Savannah Sand Gnats and Double-A Binghamton Mets in 2014. He hit .238/.339/.396 in 279 plate appearances with Binghamton. Nimmo is also MLBPipeline.com's number 60 MLB prospect.

Reynolds is hitting .278 with three home runs, 9 RBI, and 10 walks in the AFL. He spent the majority of the year with the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s, hitting .333/.386/.479 in 301 plate appearances. Reynolds got the attention of both the organization and the media with his impressive hitting in 2014 but ultimately was not called up to the majors.
