Two Yankees prospects will be representing the Bronx at the Arizona Fall League's "Fall Stars Game" on Nov. 13.

Austin Wells and Elijah Dunham were named to the squad on Wednesday, per MLB.

Wells, the Yankees' sixth-best prospect per MLB Pipeline, slashed .275/.413/.471 with a homer, three doubles and two triples with 11 RBI over 14 games with the Surprise Saguaros, which also have prospects from the Washington Nationals, Cincinnati Reds, Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals.

Wells is coming off his first professional season, where he played Low- and High-A ball for the Yanks. In 103 games, the catcher produced a solid .264/.390/.476 slash with 16 homers, 23 doubles, 76 RBI and 101 total hits.

Some believe that Wells, a first-round pick for New York in 2020, has what it takes at the dish to move up quickly through the ranks.

As for Dunham, he had even better numbers than Wells in the AFL, slashing .354/.475/.585 with two homers, five doubles, two triples and 10 RBI in 18 games.

A 40th-round pick by the Pittsburgh Pirates back in 2019, Dunham was also impressive at both A-ball levels this season, hitting .263/.362/.463 with 13 dingers, 25 doubles and 57 RBI.
