BALTIMORE -- Seven players, one coach and a trainer from the Orioles' organization will take part in the Arizona Fall League this offseason.

Pitchers Parker Bridwell, Zach Davies, Mychal Givens and Ashur Tolliver, catcher Mike Ohlman, infielder Jason Esposito and outfielder Dariel Alvarez are the seven players who will play for the Glendale Desert Dogs, where Triple-A Norfolk pitching coach Mike Griffin and Class A Short Season Aberdeen trainer Chris Poole will also serve in those same roles.

Davies, Givens, Tolliver and Ohlman are all currently with Double-A Bowie, Bridwell and Esposito are with Class A Advanced Frederick and Alvarez is also with Norfolk. Both Alvarez and Ohlman played in the AFL last year with the Surprise Saguaros.

Davies, the No. 8 prospect in the organization, is the top Orioles prospect headed to Arizona, followed by the No. 10 prospect Ohlman and the No. 12 prospect Bridwell.

The AFL season begins on Oct. 7.
