White Sox Minor League Update: Snowbird Edition

The Arizona Fall League begins tomorrow, October 4.  As a reminder, White Sox prospects play for the Mesa Solar Sox.  The participants are:

SP Terry Doyle

RP Jacob Petricka*

RP Nevin Griffith

RP Brandon Kloess

SS Tyler Saladino

OF Brandon Short

C Josh Phegley

C Mike Blanke [recently added]

*Note that me calling someone a relief pitcher is simply what role they will likely have in the AFL, not what I am projecting them to be in the future.

The fall instructional league has been going on for a couple weeks now.  Various writers have attended these games and Keith Law tweeted a couple notes about Petricka and Griffith as they warmed up for the AFL:

White Sox rhp [Jake] Petricka 91-96 but no offspeed pitch. Threw just one slider that didn't break

White Sox rhp Nevin Griffith 92-96 here in instructs. Needs a better second pitch

While we'll have to wait until November for the various winter leagues (Venezuela, Dominican and Puerto Rico) to get going, there is some other baseball action that is of some interest.  The baseball World Cup began last weekend.  On the USA team is OF Jordan Danks, INF Andrew Garcia and P Justin Cassell.  Their first game against Japan was postponed so tonight's game against Puerto Rico is their opener.  You can follow that tournament here:
