This Week in White Sox Minor League Baseball

Dayan Viciedo

This week:

  • Dayan Viciedo may finally be adjusting to American pro baseball. After a putrid start, he's currently 9-26 in his last six games, including a double and two homers. He was initially having trouble with breaking balls, especially the slider. It seems like he's been better at fighting those off recently and, as he sees more fastballs, his power numbers should further improve.
  • Clevelan Santeliz came off the DL and all he did in his season debut at Birmingham was face four batters and strike all of them out.
  • Gordon Beckham: .310/.396/.524.
  • Roster Machinations: Derek Rodriguez was promoted to Charlotte. Justin Cassel moved into the Knights' starting rotation.
  • Jeffrey Marquez had been atrocious so far this season: 0-4, 14.18 ERA, 13.1 IP, 26 hits, 10 BB, 7 K and a 0.94 GO/AO. I never thought he was a good pitcher but he certainly should not be this bad. So it probably shouldn't be a shock that he was placed on the DL after his last start.
  • Sox Machine recaps April for Charlotte and Birmingham and Winston-Salem and Kannapolis.
  • The Intimidators' starting pitching has been putting up some gaudy numbers so far this year. Daniel Hudson leads the group with a 1-2 record, 1.23 ERA, 22 IP, 15 H, 2 BB, 30 K (yes, that walk to strikeout ratio is correct). Roommate Dexter Carter isn't far behind with a 1-0 record, 1.69 ERA, 21.1 IP, 15 H, 5 BB, 23 K. Gregory Infante rounds things out with a 1-0 record, 0.75 ERA, 24 IP, 13 H, 9 BB, 22 K. Charlie Leesman and Garrett Johnson haven't been bad, either. Of course, what has been bad is the hitting in the South Atlantic League this year. As always, keep in mind the context of the numbers you see. Some of these guys are pretty good. But they're probably not that good.
  • A scout says Jordan Danks has a long-ish swing. Imagine that.
  • Tyler Flowers: .292/.407/.569. Now, if he could only catch...

As always, check the Minor League Update Fanpost on the right sidebar for daily updates and commentary. Additionally, I twitter updates from the minor league games that I watch/listen to so, if you're interested in that or my other random baseball thoughts, follow me: http://twitter.com/SouthSidelarry.
