Hot and Cold 8/8-8/14

Hot and Cold 8/8-8/14
The deadline for signing draft picks is fast approaching, but as usual there is little news on the White Sox front. 29th rounder Dustin Hayes signed, but that doesn’t seem like major news. With that in mind, let’s continue business as usual with a new Hot and Cold. Hot Hitter: Jon Gilmore, 1B/DH, AA Stats:... Read more »

FutureSox 2011 Midseason Top 25 Prospects

FutureSox 2011 Midseason Top 25 Prospects
FutureSox publishes multiple editions of top prospect lists each year. The list is created by a voting system, much like AP college sports rankings, with the votes coming from six of our knowledgeable prospect gurus. We got a little behind this year and missed our preseason list, but here now is the latest edition of the FutureSox Top 25...

The minor league season is underway!

In case you missed it, yesterday was Opening Day and I’m not talking about the White Sox home opener. The minor league season started yesterday, with Charlotte, Birmingham and Kannapolis kicking things off. We’ll have team previews coming next week, but for now let’s hit on the first impressions. Some of the biggest storylines early... Read more »

White Sox System Breakdown: Infielders

Gordon Beckham was a gem for the White Sox infield. He rushed through the minors and made an impact with the big league team not long after being drafted. Once Beckham graduated to the bigs the minor league system has lacked depth around the horn. Brent Morel and Dayan Viciedo (if the outfield experiment doesn’t... Read more »

FutureSox Post-Season Top Prospects List

FutureSox has published our 2010 Post-Season Top Prospects list! We publish the list three times a year – early April just as the minor league season begins, July after the draft picture gets solidified and the minor leaguers have part of a season under their belts, and then in the fall after the minor league...

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.

FutureSox Prospects of the Month: June 2010

Dan Hudson continues to show his slow April was just that and nothing to worry about. In six June starts he went 5-1 with a 2.08 ERA. He struck out 40 and walked 13 in 35 innings. A recall to the Majors has to be coming soon, whether it's via trade or injury. Others: Carlos Torres (1.71 ERA, 23 K, 13 BB in 31.2 IP) and Santos Rodriguez (1.17 ERA, 23 K, 6 BB in 15.1 IP).
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 »

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.

How good is the Winston-Salem offense?

The Winston-Salem Dash have been the hottest team in the White Sox organization and one of the hottest in all of the minors. The reason, for the most part, is their incredible offense. Dash hitters have the top five spots in batting average among Sox minor leaguers. They also moved to new BB&T Ballpark this... Read more »
