Oakland Athletics prospects Sean Manaea, Renato Nunez, and Chad Pinder were named to the East team for this Saturday's Arizona Fall League Fall Stars Game.

Left-handed starting pitcher Sean Manaea is tied for fourth in strikeouts in the AFL with 13 in three starts of four innings each and is scheduled to start Monday's contest for the Mesa Solar Sox. He has also allowed just three walks in those 12 innings.

Third baseman Renato Nunez owns an .881 slugging percentage in the Fall League so far, which is good enough for second best among third baseman in the league behind his Mesa teammate, Cubs prospect Jeimer Canderlario (1.106). Nunez is also second in home runs with four, three of them coming in one game on October 19.

Shortstop Chad Pinder has been away from the Mesa Solar Sox since October 21 on personal leave, but is back in the lineup for Monday's game. Pinder is 6-for-17 in the four games he has played, with two home runs, a walk, and four strikeouts, resulting in a .353/.389/.824 line (1.212 OPS).

The Fall Stars Game will be played this Saturday, November 7 at 5 o'clock Pacific Time at Salt Rivers Fields in Scottsdale, Ariz and televised on MLB Network and streamed at MLB.com.
