White Sox All-Draft Pick Team

White Sox All-Draft Pick Team
The White Sox have gotten a lot of flack for their drafts, more specifically draft spending. They have had some good picks that developed into solid ball players so let’s take a look at the best of that group for the last decade (2001-2010). This is an attempt at a 25-man roster based on the... Read more »

Hudson and Holmberg dealt for Edwin Jackson

White Sox top prospect Dan Hudson and 2009 second round draft pick David Holmberg have been traded to Arizona for starting pitcher Edwin Jackson. Hudson being traded is less than a surprise, but Holmberg’s name had not come up much. In our recently released midseason top 25 prospect rankings, Hudson was No. 1 while Holmberg... Read more »

Top 25 Review: 5-1

Everyone knew he needed to cut down on his strikeouts going into the year, but Danks hasn't been able to do that. 104 strikeouts in 339 plate appearances is ugly. He's hitting .245/.307/.387 for the Knights and it's hard to see him succeeding in the Majors. He HAS to cut down on the strikeouts and it's seeming less likely he will be able to do so.
The midseason top 25 review concludes with the top five White Sox prospects. Two players have met or surpassed expectations, two have had their struggles and of course Jared Mitchell’s injury was the early story of 2010. As this series concludes, we are preparing our midseason top 25 prospect rankings so keep an eye out... Read more »

FutureSox Prospects of the Month: June 2010

De Aza had been injured, but since coming back he has been killing the ball. He hit .440/.491/.720 with 2 HR, 3 BB and 8 K in 50 AB. His scorching hot June included a 5 hit performance June 28. Overall he is hitting .306/.391/.441. Solid enough numbers for a speedy outfielder. He also is 9/9 in steals. De Aza, 26, has Major League experience and probably has more Major League time in his future if he keeps hitting like this and stays healthy.
Rookie ball is gearing up and the second half of the minor league season is underway. The Winston-Salem Dash were the only first half division winners for the White Sox. There still have been a few strong performers in what has been an otherwise disappointing minor league season in the Sox organization. Let’s see who... Read more »

Hot and Cold 6/24-6/30

The first full week of rookie league action brings with it a whole host of new talent to consider for the Hot and Cold list. Unfortunately one recent draftee makes the list as the week’s cold hitter.

Hot and Cold 6/3-6/9

That’s right, Hot and Cold doesn’t take a break, not even for the draft. Guess which top catching prospect has started to perform again?

FutureSox Prospects of the Month: May 2010

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.

Hot and Cold 5/20-5/26

Cold hitting is clearly infectious as several members of Charlotte’s lineup put forward good cases to be this week’s cold hitter, with Tyler Flowers the pick (or non-pick?) of the bunch.

Hot and Cold 4/29-5/5

This weeks ‘Hot and Cold’ features a myriad of poor offensive performers from the Kannapolis Intimidators and a top pitching prospect’s return to form.
