Hot and Cold 6/10-6/17

Another week brings another Hot and Cold. Dayan Viciedo continues to kill the ball, while another Knight falls deeper into a slump. Dayan Viciedo Hot Hitter: Dayan Viciedo, 1B/OF, AAA Dayan Viciedo continues his excellent season with another hot week for the Knights. Viciedo has been one of the few shining lights for the Sox...

Hot and Cold 5/26-6/2

This weeks installment of Hot and Cold features a scuffling catcher who’s just been promoted to High-A, plus everyone’s new favorite screwball pitcher. Hot Hitter: Andy Wilkins, 1B, A+ Andy Wilkins was one of my favorite picks from the 2010 draft, and after a slow start to the season, he’s picked up his form of... Read more »

Hot and Cold: 4/28-5/4

Our first installment of Hot and Cold this season features the start of a possible breakout season from Steven Upchurch, and some Jared Mitchell negativity. Hot Hitter: Tyler Flowers, C, AAA After a miserable 2010 season, expectations for Tyler Flowers coming into this season were low, but a strong spring training showing where he hit... Read more »

Hot and Cold 8/19-8/25

After back-to-back solid seasons from Matt Zaleski, there was some mild expectation for him in 2010, but he certainly hasn't delivered. Zaleski's appearance this week was particularly disastrous as he managed to give up 6 ER without recording one out. He gave up 4 hits (3x1B, 1xHR), and walked 2. For the season he has a 5.40 ERA with 80 SO/46 BB in 133.1 IP and a 9.66 ERA in his last 10 games. Honorable mentions: Jeff Marquez (5.1 IP, 11.81 ERA, 1 BB/4 SO), Joe Serafin (3.2 IP, 17.18 ERA, 4 BB/2 SO) and Nate Jones (4.2 IP, 7.71 ERA, 4 BB/2 SO).
Another week brings another great start from Andre Rienzo and Trayce Thompson returns to action in style. The week was not so kind to a couple of Knights, however.

Hot and Cold 8/12-8/18

Justin Edwards looked like a potential breakout candidate after his fast start with Winston-Salem this year, but since his promotion to Birmingham he has been awful, and this week was no exception. In two starts (9.1 IP), Edwards gave up 14 ER (13.50 ERA), allowing 17 hits and 5 walks (2.36 WHIP), while punching out 6. Since his promotion to Birmingham Edwards' ERA is 6.06 and he has 41 SO/28 BB in 90.2 IP. Honorable mentions: Lucas Harrell (4.2 IP, 13.50 ERA, 4 BB/3 SO), Steven Upchurch (8 IP, 10.125 ERA, 3 BB/6 SO) and Joe Serafin (6 IP, 7.50 ERA, 2 BB/1 SO).
Ryan Buch’s breakout continues as Jon Gilmore starts to fade and Justin Edwards’ hot start to the season is almost completely forgotten in this week’s Hot and Cold. 

Hot and Cold 8/5-8/11

When you have a player who posts a 1.349 OPS and doesn’t make it as the hot hitter of the week, you know it’s been a good week on the offensive side of the ball.

Hot and Cold 7/29-8/4

Charlie Shirek was bumped up to Triple-A for his start this week but it was not one to remember. In 5.2 IP for the Knights Shirek gave up 7 ER (11.12 ERA), allowed 6 hits and 4 walks (1.76 WHIP) while striking out 3. Shirek was lights out to start the year but has battle injuries and mixed form since then. His season numbers now sit at 4.26 ERA, 1.49 WHIP and 40 SO/21 BB in 74 IP. Honorable mentions: Stephen Sauer (5 IP, 10.80 ERA, 2 BB/3 SO), Matthew Hopps (5 IP, 9.00 ERA, 1 BB/2 SO) and Matt Zaleski (6 IP, 7.50 ERA, 1 BB/7 SO).
Another trade deadline comes and goes, and with it, the White Sox farm system is further thinned out. While Dan Hudson and David Holmberg will no longer be appearing on the Hot and Cold list, there are still plenty of other prospects to choose from.

Hot and Cold 7/22-7/28

Brazilian pitcher Andre Rienzo increases his scoreless innings streak to 21.2 IP and in the process becomes our pitcher of the week, though Ryan Buch and David Holmberg pushed him close by putting up identical 7 IP, 0 R, 0 BB, 5 SO lines.

Hot and Cold 7/15-7/21

If you thought hitting .516 would be good enough to make you the hitter of the week, you’d be wrong, as Ryan Lee misses out due to an even better week by a certain Winston-Salem Dash outfielder. That’s right, it’s time for another Hot and Cold…

Hot and Cold 7/8-7/14

After a somewhat baffling promotion to Double-A it was unsurprising to see Charlie Leesman struggle in his first start for the Barons. In 4.1 IP he gave up 5 ER (10.38 ERA), allowing 4 hits, 3 walks (1.40 WHIP) and striking out 6. His GO/AO was a very solid 5.00 and his FIP (2.66) actually makes for very good reading. For the year Leesman has a 5.36 ERA in 89 IP, with 47 BB/45 SO. Honorable mentions: Cameron Bayne (5 IP, 12.60 ERA, 0 BB/3 SO), Justin Edwards (4 IP, 9.00 ERA, 0 BB/3 SO) and Joe Serafin (6.2 IP, 6.75 ERA, 1 BB/4 SO).
An All-Star break shortened week wasn’t enough to slow down one Charlotte Knights hitter and Brandon Short’s numbers continue to slide.
