LOS ANGELES -- Dodgers minor league pitcher Ralston Cash and Class-A Rancho Cucamonga manager Bill Haselman on Monday were named to the East roster for the 2015 Fall Stars Game in the Arizona Fall League. The duo could be joined by outfielder Jacob Scavuzzo as well.

The game will be played on Saturday night at 5 p.m. PT and will be televised by MLB Network and available online at MLB.com.

Cash was the Dodgers' second-round pick in 2010, and put up a 3.47 ERA in 49 games with Double-A Tulsa in 2015, with three saves, 58 strikeouts and 28 walks in 58 innings. The right-hander was also very effective against left-handed batters, holding them to hitting just .178/.275/.311 with 25 strikeouts in 102 plate appearances.

"We've noticed consistently poor contact from left-handed hitters against Ralston's slider and cutter. Those guys simply beat that pitch into the ground," Dodgers director of player development Gabe Kapler said in September. "That pitch in particular intrigues our group."

The 24-year-old has pitched in five games thus far in the Arizona Fall League, allowing one run on two hits in six innings, with four strikeouts and three walks.

Haselman is managing the Glendale Desert Dogs in the Arizona Fall League, after guiding the Quakes to the 2015 California League Championship. The former big league catcher has managed two seasons in the Dodgers system, also at the helm for Class-A Great Lakes in 2014.

Scavuzzo isn't yet on the Fall Stars roster, but is one of three "Final Vote" candidates for the last roster spot on the East squad. Fans can vote for Scavuzzo online through 11 a.m. PT on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old Scavuzzo, drafted in the 21st round out of Villa Park High School in Orange in 2012, hit .286/.337/.500 with 32 doubles and 18 home runs in 119 games between Great Lakes and Rancho Cucamonga in 2015.

In seven games with Glendale in the AFL, Scavuzzo is 11-for-28 with two home runs and two doubles, hitting .393/.400/.679.
