The Desert Dogs, which will also include players from the A's, Blue Jays, Rockies and Twins, will play their home games at Phoenix Municipal Stadium.
Here's a closer look at the D-backs players with comments from Hinch:
Ambriz: "An opportunity for him to bounce back from a struggling year. Getting some more mound time and being surrounded by the pitchers and the position players that he will be in the Fall League is a good challenge for him. It allows him to continue his year and he's pitched better over the course of the season."
Barnette: "He's probably the lowest-profile guy coming out of it. He continues to miss bats. He has a good delivery and they've done a great job in Double-A of getting his delivery very sound. He earned the promotion. It's a promotion for him. It's the first time he will be exposed to this level of competition, and he's done it by good old-fashioned hard work."
Mahon: "He's probably the best story of the group. He was signed as a non-drafted free agent. One of our scouts, Mike Doughtry, found him at the University of Minnesota as a very unrefined, arm-strength-type pitcher. Our pitching department has done a great job with him and he's raced through the Minors. High velocity, good movement. A kid that hasn't been given anything, but he's pitched his tail off."
Hester: "With the trades that we made we hoped that people would step up and emerge as players deserving of these opportunities and Hester did. He's a pretty polished college catcher that has navigated his way through. He's battled a couple of bizarre incidents, a car wreck and was hit by a foul ball in the dugout. He got to Double-A and struggled early and rallied late. He's got the physical attribute and he's got some brains from Stanford."
Ryal: "Pretty athletic guy who is pretty much a baseball rat. He can play all over the field and probably his best attribute is that he doesn't do anything really poorly. He's kind of a throwback, dirty uniform every game, his father was a big leaguer. He knows the game, smart player, knows his strengths and limitations and put up a fantastic year in Double-A."
Frey: "You talk about guys that come up and grab opportunities, and he's a guy that sticks out. What a great job by our scouting department to find a 10th-rounder that after his first full season can end up in the Fall League is kudos to them. He's a true leadoff guy, high energy, plays all three outfield positons, he's a tough at-bat and knows how to grind. He does a lot of what we look for. Now he just needs to play more. It will be a big challenge coming out of A ball, but we wouldn't put him there if we didn't think he could handle it."
Brown: "He got to Double-A quickly and ended up having to repeat there this year, and he's performed about the same in both years. He's ready to face a little better competition, get a little more exposure and get over the hiccup of Double-A. He's earned his way out of Double-A and this is a reward for him."
