Updated White Sox Top 10 Prospects: Baseball America


The White Sox Top 10 has undergone some significant renovations since we first released it. We update the lists in the Prospect Handbook with transactions through mid-December, and Chicago's has three new faces in Viciedo and two former Braves, catcher Tyler Flowers and shortstop Brent Lillibridge. GM Kenny Williams loves to wheel and deal, so we may not be done making changes. Clickthru for ranking goodness

Poreda Pushing For Promotion


Aaron Poreda hasn’t overwhelmed hitters in his first full pro season, but he throws hard, he throws strikes, and he’s pitched very well in the last month. That could lead to a big league promotion for the White Sox’ stretch run, but for now Poreda will have to settle for shutting down Southern League hitters, which he’s done quite well lately. Yesterday Poreda shut down a strong Huntsville lineup, going six innings and allowing just one run, which was unearned. Poreda walked two and struck out six, lowering his ERA with Birmingham to 3.17 in 76 2/3 innings with 21 walks and 62 strikeouts. Poreda, 21, began the year in high Class A Winston-Salem, where he had a 3.31 ERA in 73 1/3 innings with a 46-18 K-BB mark. In each of his last five starts, Poreda has not allowed more than three earned runs in one outing.

Richar off the DL, Optioned to Charlotte


Prior to tonight's game at Tampa Bay, the Chicago White Sox returned Danny Richar from an injury rehabilitation assignment at Class AAA Charlotte, reinstated the infielder from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Charlotte.

Lucy dislocates kneecap


Charlotte catcher Donny Lucy suffered a dislocated right kneecap in the fourth inning. Lucy ended the inning with a deep fly to left field, but on the follow through of his swing his right left twisted oddly and Lucy went down immediately, grabbing his knee. Lucy stayed down at home plate for several minutes before being carted off the field

Sox Machine : Minor League Monthly: April


I was going to perform a roundup of the Sox minors for the month, but the system is pretty dry and Jim's done a fine job here. And besides, the only names I'm really paying attention to anymore are Broadway, Egbert, Harrell (DL), Poreda, Cassell, Shelby (injured?), Miranda (poor start), and Martinez (no power).

Reporting From.... Knight's Stadium (Fort Mill, SC)

Josh Fields, 2-for-5 with 2 RBI's and an error, subscibes to the same shut-up-and-play plan. "Of course I wasn't happy about being back here at first. But it is what it is. It would be different if I'd lost out to another young guy. But Joe Crede has a Silver Slugger and is pretty much defined as an annual Gold Glove winner. So all I know to do is work on my defense, hit the ball, and not give them excuse to keep me down here." Or at least give them an excuse to trade Crede, which the Sox claim they tried to do during the spring. "It's all business,"Fields says. "It's no fun for anybody when it's like this."

THT: Pitching prospects to watch in 2008

Jack Egbert RHSP | Chicago White Sox (AA) | Age - 25 Since joining the White Sox in 2004, Egbert has done nothing but improve. He has seen his K% jump from 17.7% in Single-A to 26% in Double-A while maintaining good control. He also keeps the ball on the ground as evidenced by his microscopic HR rate, and this is due mostly to a low-to-mid-90s sinker and an above-average change-up that keeps hitters off balance. Egbert has been old for his levels, but that hasn't stopped him yet.
