2021 South Side Sox Prospect Vote: Round 29

Who is the 29th-best prospect in the White Sox system?

Bryce Bush had a rocky 2019, but his slight move up our poll indicates we still have a lot of faith in him.

Round 28 was a lot of fun, a close race from No. 1 through 10. In the end, Bryce Bush prevailed, with 28% (19 of 68 votes). Bush had a down 2019 but continues to find support in our poll, debuting at No. 25 in 2019 and dipping to 29th last year.

Yolbert Sánchez, who just missed the win here, was last year’s No. 28.

Sánchez seems to be the favorite for No. 29, but the entire ballot is pretty tight right now. Lency Delgado did earn a vote, but finished 10th on his first ballot.
