2021 South Side Sox Prospect Vote: Round 13

New, 1 comment

Who is the 13th-best prospect in the White Sox system?

New York Yankees v Chicago White Sox

If you’re unsure of what this is, read our Top Prospect Vote primer.


Coming out of a very tight race last round, Jake Burger established himself early and didn’t let up his lead in order to become our No. 12 prospect, with 28% (104 of 371 votes). It’s a pretty impressive leap for Burger, who fell in the vote to No. 21 last year after finishing eighth and ninth in 2018 and 2019, starting his White Sox career.

In the 2020 poll, Matthew Thompson finished as our No. 12 prospect in the vote.

Blake Rutherford made a nice push this round, finishing third and setting up perhaps a wicked three-player battle to win the No. 13 vote.

Newcomer Bryan Ramos earned just two votes and finished in last place.
