BP's Top 15 White Sox Prospects


Four-Star Prospects 1. Daniel Hudson, RHP 2. Jared Mitchell, OF 3. Tyler Flowers, C Three-Star Prospects 4. Jordan Danks, CF 5. Dayan Viciedo, 3B 6. Brent Morel, 3B 7. Clevelan Santeliz, RHP 8. Trayce Thompson, OF Two-Star Prospects 9. Santos Rodriguez, LHP 10. David Holmberg, LHP 11. C.J. Retherford, 2B Four More: 12. Jhonny Nunez, RHP: Nunez has a 93-95 mph fastball and a very good slider, both of which should fit in a big-league bullpen, though he falls short of being the late-inning type. 13. Josh Phegley, C: The 2009 draftee is the rare college catcher with power and patience, but there are way too many questions about his defensive prowess. 14. John Ely, RHP: Ely has consistently gotten minor league hitters out, but on a pure scouting level, he has merely average stuff and command. 15. Nathan Jones, RHP: Standing 6-foot-5, he's projectable as all get out and dialed up heat clocked up to 97 mph this year; he'll also be 24 in January while having yet to get out of A-ball. ... The Sleeper: While the White Sox are rarely big players on the international scene, they might have found something in 18-year-old Venezuelan catcher Miguel Gonzalez, who combines a good bat with power potential and impressive catch-and-throw skills.
