This Week in White Sox Minor League Baseball

Carlos Sanchez

This week:

  • RHP Jake Petricka left his start on Friday after just four pitches when he took a line drive off his right elbow. There's no official word on the injury but Petricka tweeted yesterday that it felt like he'd thrown 200 pitches, not 4. It's probably safe to assume that he'll head to the 7-day DL and miss a start or two. For the season: 9 GS, 41 IP, 40 H, 24 BB, 41 K, 6 WP.
  • In other Winston-Salem injury news, SS Marcus Semien, who had been riding an 18 game hitting streak, was finally put on the disabled list. He hadn't played since May 12 due to a right shoulder injury. For the season: 280/.343/.480.
  • Jared Mitchell: .288/.408/.485. 15% walk rate, 26.5% strikeout rate.
  • RHP Jeff Soptic joined Kannapolis from extended spring training. The White Sox have brought him along slowly after drafting him in the third round last year. The tall righty with a power arm pitched just 2.2 innings in three games for Bristol last season. He'll likely see time in the Intimidators' bullpen as he tries to sharpen his erratic control.
  • The MLB Draft is coming up on June 4-6. The White Sox have the 13th pick overall. Per the new rules put in place by the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, they'll have $5,915,100 to spread over their 11 picks in the first 10 rounds of the draft. This year's draft is generally considered to be a weak talent pool. If you're interested in some of the names in the mix as top picks, there's plenty of coverage out there and mlb.com has a decent enough Top 100 List with some scouting information.
  • The White Sox Dominican Summer League affiliate begins their season on June 2. While the historically stingy and corrupt White Sox don't have much talent of note, their Dominican academy has seen a few current prospects pass through it. LHP Jefferson Olacio continues to hold his own as an 18 year old in Low-A: 11 G, 25.2 IP, 22 H, 15 BB, 26 K, 5 HBP, 4 WP. 2B/SS Carlos Sanchez, still just 19 years old, keeps hitting singles for the Dash: .307/.366/.380. And his teammate "3B" Juan Silverio has hit well since arriving in Winston-Salem on May 4: .388/.396/.673. His defense at third base, however, continues to scream "move me to the outfield".
  • RHP Simon Castro: 9 GS, 57 IP, 62 H, 13 BB, 49 K.
