This Week in White Sox Minor League Baseball

Dayan wonders where all his new friends have gone.


This week:

  • There was a lot but let's start with a late-breaking one: Jordan Danks was in Chicago on Friday for tests on his wrist. Jordan had missed some games a couple weeks back when the issue apparently began on a check swing but was placed on the DL Thursday. The results of the tests are expected today. Update: "Jordan Danks' wrist will be in a splinter (sic) for a week and then he will be brought along slowly. No serious damage was found." Per Cowley. Sounds like a sprain
  • Brandon Allen received his expected mid-season promotion to Charlotte and enjoyed his debut: 3-4 with a couple doubles. His fellow promotee, Brian Omogrosso, did not make a good first impression: 2 IP, 4 runs, 4 hits, 1 BB, 1 K, 1 WP.
  • Carlos Torres threw a rain shortened perfect game Thursday for the Knights: 5 IP, 0 hits, 0 BB, 5 K. On Friday, Levi Maxwell threw a double header shortened no-hitter for the Dash: 7 IP, 0 hits, 3 BB, 2 K. It was at an opportune time for Maxwell, too, as he is likely one of the players being considered for release to make room for the mid-season additions in the low minors. He credits his recent success to the development of a cutter. Imagine that.
  • Daniel Hudson has moved quickly and impressively through the White Sox low minors. After a couple poor starts in late May, Hudson returned to fine form for the Dash in June and was rewarded with promotion to the Barons. His AA debut is scheduled for today.
  • No commentary required. Tyler Flowers: .278/.426/.521.
  • Steven Upchurch is back in Bristol to start his season but hopes to move up to Kannapolis quickly.
  • Dexter Carter hopes to be moving on from Kannapolis quickly. After yet another fine performance last night - 7 IP, 1 hit, 1 BB, 7 K - Carter has probably thrown his last pitch for the Intimidators and will join the recently promoted Justin Edwards in the Winston-Salem rotation.
  • There were lots of other promotions and roster moves this week (and expect more next week). Go here if you want to know them all.
  • LSU's Jared Mitchell has alternately impressed and frustrated in the College World Series. He's flashed the power and batting eye while also flashing the high strikeout rate. Watching him play, however, confirms his high upside. He'll be playing in the final on Monday and Tuesday next week at 6pm on ESPN.
  • Dayan Viciedo: .277/.298/.377.
  • In other free-swinging Latino prospect news, Juan Silverio continues to tear apart the DSL: .338/.390/.730.
  • On tap for next week is the start of the rookie leagues. The White Sox have the Bristol White Sox in the Appalachian League (usually assigned high school draftees and debuting Latino players) and the Great Falls Voyagers in the Pioneer League (usually assigned college draftees and "graduates" of Bristol).
