White Sox Winter Leagues Preview: Dominican Republic

Each year, the White Sox organization has a couple dozen or so minor and major leagers playing in winter leagues around the Caribbean and/or in Australia. The leagues start at various times and not all of them have their rosters up yet, so we’re breaking up the previews into multiple editions this year. We published the Venezuelan League preview on the... Read more »

White Sox Prospects of the Month - May 2014

After each month of the minor league season, we name one position player and one pitcher as players of the month on the White Sox farm.  There were some tough choices this month, with a couple hitters and a couple pitchers who could easily claim the awards.  Let’s take a look at who we chose,...

State of the System: Corner Infield

Positional Overview: Prior to this off-season, the corner infield positions were both viewed as being weak spots in this organization, but GM Rick Hahn has done a good job of bringing in potential long-term occupants at both 1B and 3B this off-season in the shape of Jose Abreu and Matt Davidson, respectively. Beyond those two... Read more »

Note: there are two Sox prospects still playing... Read more »

Q&A with First Baseman Dan Black

With all the attention on the signing of Jose Dariel Abreu (to the largest international signing to date), the waiting game on Paul Konerko’s possible retirement, and calls for trading Adam Dunn, a question goes unasked: are there any first basemen in the Sox minor league system who could play a role in the near future? ...

FutureSox Prospects of the Month: August/September 2013

This is 2013’s better (way) late than never final edition of prospects of the month. As is usual protocol around here, August and September have been combined into the same post due to September being so short. Oddly enough, this was probably the most competitive month of the season in terms of finding standout prospects.... Read more »

FutureSox Prospects of the Month: July 2013

One month remains in the minor league season, but some prospects are heating up down the stretch. July was filled with a no-hitter and a couple more close calls by White Sox pitchers and a scorching hot run from a hitter that has some major helium. Affiliate Records Charlotte: 54-62 overall, 14-12 in July Birmingham:... Read more »

Q&A with Infielder Marcus Semien

No prospect in the White Sox system is hotter right now than infielder Marcus Semien.  At age 22 in AA he is on the younger side, but you wouldn’t know it looking at what he’s done in July: .372/.524/.745, 29 BB, 12 K and 6 stolen bases for good measure.  He’s played all three skill infield...
