The White Sox have a B game and their Cactus League opener in the books. On Tuesday, the Sox lost 4-2 to the Dodgers in a B game at Camelback Ranch and yesterday they tied (yes, tied, welcome to spring training) the Angels 4-4 in Tempe. Let’s take a look at the early buzz surrounding White Sox prospects in camp.
Juan Pierre is “mentoring” Jared Mitchell and apparently Pierre realizes his own shortcomings:
Pierre, acquired in a Dec. 15 trade from the Dodgers, said there is only so much he can teach the Sox’ top prospect.
“He’s a speed and power guy,” Pierre said. “He’s a five-tool kind of guy. I think I can help him with two, two and a half. I tell him just to relax and just have fun, that’s the most important thing.”
Dayan Viciedo’s move to first base may end up being more than a trial and he looked pretty good there (and that link is a really good profile of him too):
Sergio Santos wowed people yesterday by striking out the side, proving he’s come a long way. For more on Santos, be sure to read Jeff Buchanan’s breakdown of Santos using Pitch f/x from the Arizona Fall League.
