2020 South Side Sox Prospect Vote: Round 45

New, 2 comments

Vote for the 45th-best prospect in the White Sox system!

Three years in, we finally have our act together enough to kick off our prospect vote so the end doesn’t run into the regular season.

Here’s how 2018 wrangled out — all 42 picks. Also, here’s an archive of every article in the 2018 series. Here’s how 2019 came together, all 50 picks, and the archive as well.

There are some cursory stats attached to help you out in your decision-making, but all the great bio writing from WSM you’re used to seeing here is over at South Side Hit Pen, as we count down the Top 100 White Sox Prospects over there.

By starting our vote here and the Top 100 countdown at SSHP at the same time, by the time the SSHP Top 100 has counted from 100 to 50, this SSS poll vote will have counted down from 1 to 50. We’ll meet in the middle, with the SSS poll vote factoring in the order of our final 50 prospects.

Sound cool? Now, get voting!


In fairly tight voting on Monday, Ronaldo Guzman pulled away with the win, earning 21% (22 of 107 votes).

There are now four left-handed starting pitchers among our first 44 picks, as lefties continue to dominate the results of late:

Last year’s No. 44 prospect was Kade McClure.

Newcomer Harvin Mendoza finished ninth in his debut, earning three votes. Zach Remillard and Taylor Varnell tied for the second straight vote, both gaining five votes this round. Very few votes separated every player on this past ballot, so next round’s favorite is anybody’s guess.
