The White Sox minor league system is having a rough season. The first three picks from the 2009 draft are injured and will miss a significant amount of time. However, there are still some bright spots. Let's take a look at the best of May.
News and notes
Brady Shoemaker, Brandon Kloess, Brandon Short, Brent Morel, Dan Hudson, Dayan Viciedo, Kyle Bellamy, Terry Doyle
Viciedo has an explosive bat. It is great to see him turning things around. I'm curious what is ailing him down in Charlotte since he's missed the last 3 games.
The biggest thing that stands out about Viciedo is his bat speed (it is at the elite level). He is apparently a really good kid so he should continue to develop.
The guy will hit at the big league level but the thing that will determine whether he turns into an above average hitter (or even an elite hitter) is his pitch recognition.
