The Next Wave - Non-Top 25 Prospects to Watch in 2013

At any given point in the season, there are well over two hundred players in the White Sox minor league system, spread out among seven US affiliate teams, a Dominican Summer League squad, and instructional leagues.  Twice a year, we publish a list of the current Top 25 prospects in the system – roughly the top...

Our season preview series continues today with the Barons. Will they be able to recapture the magic of their 2009 season, or will they more resemble the disappointing 2010 team? The Birmingham Barons are the Double-A affiliate of the Chicago White Sox and they compete in the Southern League.   2010 in review: After a... Read more »

FutureSox Prospects of the Month: August/September 2010

Andre Rienzo (pictured) almost took pitcher of the month for the second straight month, but Reed's domination couldn't be overlooked. The Brazilian has arguably had the best season of any White Sox minor league pitcher and is one of the biggest breakout prospects of the system. In August and September he went 5-0 with a 2.00 ERA, striking out 47 and walking 10 in 36 innings. Since the all-star break he had a 2.85 ERA with 96 K and 20 BB in 75.2 IP. That'll work. Others: Matt Heidenreich (1.41 ERA, 22 K, 2 BB in 32 IP), Charlie Leesman (2.28 ERA, 31 K, 10 BB in 43.1 IP), Dylan Axelrod (1.10 ERA, 29 K, 2 BB in 32.2 IP) and Robert Young (0.29 ERA, 25 K, 7 BB in 30.2 IP).
The minor league season, playoffs included, is over. The White Sox are officially eliminated. It’s time FutureSox closes the book on in-season coverage for 2010 to make way for postseason prospects rankings, awards and other fun season-in-review features we’ll come up with. The Great Falls Voyagers lost in the first round of the Pioneer League... Read more »

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. 

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.
