White Sox prospects Marcus Semien and Chris Bassitt were named Arizona Fall League West Division All-Stars Monday.

Semien, an infielder who was named the (AA) Southern League MVP this summer, batted .261 with two homers and seven RBI after being called up to the majors for the first time this September. He had two homers and two doubles while hitting only .171 over his first 12 games in the Fall League, primarily playing shortstop.

Bassitt, a 24-year-old right-handed pitcher drafted in the 16th round in 2011, had a 1.50 ERA over six appearances in the Fall League.

He was 11-4 with a 3.08 ERA Class A Winston Salem and Birmingham.

The Fall League’s “Fall Stars Game” is Saturday (7 p.m., MLB Network).
