South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 75: Jhoandro Alfonso

The organization’s best defensive catcher is learning to hit a bit as well

At the dish: It’s been a long road for Alfonso with the White Sox, but later this summer he could get his first taste of full-season ball.

Jhoandro Alfaro
180 pounds
Bats: Both
Age: 21
SSS rank among all catchers in the system: 6

Alfaro is considered by many to be the best defensive catcher in the White Sox organization. As a bonus in 2018, Alfaro enjoyed his most successful offensive season so far, which isn’t surprising due to the high altitude of the Pioneer League. He hit .250/.298/.385 over 96 at-bats, with three homers, 18 RBIs, two stolen bases, three walks, and 18 strikeouts. Interestingly, Alfaro hit .250 against lefties and righties alike. He committed just two passed balls in his 28 games, but he did eliminate 31.5% of attempted base thefts.

It’s possible he’s promoted to Kannapolis to start 2019, but more likely he’ll return to Great Falls with a chance for promotion in August.

Take a look!
