SAN DIEGO -- Three Dodgers minor league players were named on Wednesday to the 2014 Arizona Fall League Top Prospects Team, with shortstop Corey Seager, outfielder Scott Schebler and second baseman Darnell Sweeney receiving the honors, which were voted on by Fall League managers and coaches.

Seager is arguably the Dodgers' top prospect - and no worse than third, depending on how one might value Julio Urias or Joc Pederson - and someone the team is preparing to have join them soon. He hit .281/.354/.472 in 23 games for the Glendale Desert Dogs, and led the AFL with 10 doubles. Seager finished the season on a 14-game hitting streak.

Schebler, who was added to the Dodgers' 40-man roster on Nov. 20, hit .310/.354/.524 in 23 games. He tied for third in the AFL with five home runs, tied for fourth with 17 runs scored, and was a finalist for league MVP. He made the Top Prospects Team as the designated hitter.

Sweeney hit .316/.386/.468 with two home runs and six doubles in 19 games, and was named to the team as a second baseman, the position he played most in the AFL while also seeing time at shortstop and center field.
