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…

Leesman and Serafin promoted, Rodriguez to DL

Dan Hudson’s season debut with the White Sox is the top story for Sox prospects right now, but there were a few notable transactions today. Lefty Charlie Leesman was promoted to AA, fellow lefty Joe Serafin took his place in Winston-Salem and flashy but wild reliever Santos Rodriguez was placed on the disabled list. Serafin...

Dash, Intimidators have rosters full of All-Stars

Brandon Kloess has been a knockout reliever for the Intimidators this year posting a 1.16 ERA with 39 SO/6 BB in 31 innings out of the Kannapolis bullpen. Kloess is an older guy (25), so it's tough to know what to make of him as a prospect, but the numbers are certainly impressive.
With a 40-23 record it’s unsurprising to hear that the Winston-Salem Dash have several players named to the Carolina League All-Star team, but the Kannapolis Intimidators’ 30-33 record is rather less impressive, yet they have several All-Stars of their own.

Hot and Cold 6/3-6/9

Joe Serafin, a diminuitive lefty from Tariffville, CT had a rare bad start this week for the Kannapolis Intimidators. In 4.1 IP, Joe gave up 6 ER (12.46 ERA) on 12 hits, with 2 walks (3.23 WHIP) and 1 strikeout. Serafin has been a pleasent surprise since being drafted by the White Sox in the 37th round of the '09 draft. This year he has compiled a 5-3 record with a 3.55 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 36 SO/19 BB. He has a decent ground ball rate (1.83 GO/AO), but has given up a fairly high amount of home runs (7). Honorable mentions: Nevin Griffith (4 IP, 9.00 ERA, 0 SO/4 BB) and Justin Collop (5 IP, 7.20 ERA, 3 SO/1 BB).
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?

It’s back to our season previews. We go from what is arguably the deepest position in the system, catcher, to one of the thinnest, left-handed starting pitching. Let’s take a look at what few prospect the Sox have at the position. Highest upside: David Holmberg 2009 in review: Holmberg is a bit of a rarity... Read more »
