The Milwaukee Brewers will be represented by eight players in the Arizona Fall League, as the rosters for the six-team league were announced Tuesday afternoon.

Outfielder Tyrone Taylor, ranked by MLB.com as Milwaukee’s top prospect, headlines the group that also includes left-hander Wei-Chung Wang.

Ariel Pena (Triple-A Nashville), Brooks Hall (Double-A Huntsville) and Tyler Wagner (Class-A Advanced Brevard County) join Wang as the chosen Brewers pitchers. Shortstop Hector Gomez (Nashville) and first baseman Nick Ramirez (Huntsville) will also represent the Brewers, while catcher Shawn Zarraga (Huntsville) will be on the taxi squad, meaning he is active two days a week.

Milwaukee’s eight players will play for the Glendale Desert Dogs along with representatives from the Baltimore Orioles, Chicago White Sox, Detroit Tigers and Los Angeles Dodgers. Glendale will be managed by former All-Star catcher Lance Parrish. Chris Hook, pitching coach for Milwaukee’s Double-A affiliate in Huntsville, will serve as the pitching coach for the Desert Dogs.

The Arizona Fall League begins play on Oct. 7 at spring training complexes around the Phoenix area.
