Scouting report

Snodgress, like many other early round pitchers drafted by the White Sox, has a big frame. What makes him a bit different from the typical mold the Sox draft from is that his secondary pitches are decently far along and his fastball was inconsistent in college. Snodgress went back and forth between low and mid 90s and his production wasn't consistent either. The left-hander was a reliever at Stanford and struck out more than a batter per inning over his last two seasons there but struggled with his control. In his pro debut with Great Falls in 2011, the control was much improved (17 BB in 59.1 IP) and the strikeouts remained (68). The fastball was better (consistently 91-93) and his solid curve and workable change gave him success as a starter. In 2012, Snodgress jumped into the prospect forefront, by posting decent results at Low-A Kannapolis (3.64 ERA, 84 K, 49 BB in 99 IP) and strong numbers at High-A Winston-Salem (1.50 ERA, 44 K, 15 BB in 42 IP). The original thought that he was likely a bullpen arm may be changing, and the Sox will likely keep him going as a starter as long as he is succeeding. That said, his strikeout numbers fell off the planet in AA in 2013, though his control remained respectable.

Major League Outlook: No. 3/4 starter or reliever
ETA: 2015-16
