José Rodriguez is one of the youngest top prospects in the White Sox system.

José Rodriguez had a resounding win after just missing the Top 20 this season. Still, he jumped more than 10 spots from his No. 32 finish a year ago, with 34% (21 of 62 votes).

Last year, Jake Burger finished at No. 21 in our vote.

Bryan Ramos has positioned himself for the win in the next round, but these look to be pretty open contests in the near term. New addition Konnor Pilkington earned five votes, and a tie for fifth.
