This Week In White Sox Minor League Baseball

This week:

  • Dayan Viciedo: .329/.369/.530. Recently named to the International League All-Star Team, I hope his appearance at that game on July 13 is his last act as a minor league player.  Because if he isn't called up by the end of the All-Star break (preferably sooner), this team is doing it wrong.
  • Some notable promotions this week. Everyone's favorite undrafted free agent, RHP Dan Remenowsky, was promoted to Charlotte. RHP Jacob Petricka returned from his rehab assignment and was promoted to Winston-Salem. SS Yolmer "Carlos" Sanchez is following the path of other recent young White Sox shortstop prospects, like Eduardo Escobar and Sergio Miranda, and spent barely a week in rookie ball before being promoted to Kannapolis.  Let's hope he's more like the former.
  • Jared Mitchell: .216/.280/.377.
  • The White Sox reportedly signed their top pick, OF Keenyn Walker.  He will be assigned to Great Falls.  He celebrated by going to see Transformers 3.  His review: "Transformers is probably the best movie I’ve seen this summer!"
  • 6th round pick SS Marcus Semien signed and was assigned to Kannapolis.  The remaining unsigned top ten picks are: 2nd rounder RHP Erik Johnson, 3rd rounder RHP Jeffrey Soptic, 8th rounder RHP Ian Gardeck and 10th rounder LHP Ben O'Shea.
  • SS Tyler Saladino was a favorite sleeper this offseason.  He broke his hand in a spring training game while appearing with the big club, so his season debut was delayed until mid-May.  He got off to a predictably slow start, batting .192/.286/.384 in May, but picked things up significantly in June: .306/.368/.588.  Saladino elicits a wide range of opinion from scouts, with some seeing a player who can't stick at SS and who doesn't have enough of a bat; others say there's little doubt he's a SS and like the bat quite a bit.  Kevin Goldstein is firmly in the latter camp: "having well above-average power for a middle infielder, he’s also a legitimate shortstop who makes up for average range with instincts and fundamentals."
  • RHP Addison Reed: 45.2 IP, 32 H, 8 BB, 63 K (over three levels).
