2022 White Sox Top 100 Prospects

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 1: Colson Montgomery

A first full pro season, sitting atop your organization’s prospect list? Not bad.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 2: Norge Vera

The clear top arm in the system will be handled very gingerly by the White Sox in his first Stateside season.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 3: Yoelqui Céspedes

With an enormous spring training effort, this outfielder is on the radar for a possible 2022 call-up.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 4: Oscar Colás

The potential long-term solution to right field begins his White Sox career in Winston-Salem.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 5: Jake Burger

In many prior seasons, he would have broken camp with the White Sox, but for now he’ll have to sit tight in Charlotte.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 6: José Rodríguez

This slugging shortstop was the superstar of the system a season ago.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 7: Wes Kath

Plan B for the first round turned into Plan A for the second, and the White Sox couldn’t be happier.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 8: Erick Hernández

OK, Juan Soto comps at 17 might be a bit much, but this toolsy outfielder is an incredible get for the system.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 9: Jared Kelley

It’s time to shake off a rough first full pro season and take a strong step forward toward Chicago.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 10: Bryan Ramos

Facing down more experienced pitching, this young slugger just mashes.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 11: Matthew Thompson

He proved too hittable in Kannapolis, despite his live arm, so a big step forward would be ideal in 2022.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 12: Drew Dalquist

With impressive durability, there are better days ahead in High-A.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 13: Micker Adolfo

It’s been a long road, but he may have finally slugged his way into the majors.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 14: Yolbert Sánchez

With a bat that now seems to be as dangerous as his glove, the sky’s the limit for this middle infielder.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 15: Romy González

Someone had this shortstop as the top prospect in the system — but there still are a lot of nonbelievers.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 16: Sean Burke

Somehow, this arm fell to the White Sox in the third round!

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 17: Jimmy Lambert

This righty once again will be the first starter up from Charlotte in 2022.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 18: Caleb Freeman

If you think the Craig Kimbrel trade leaves the White Sox wanting in the pen, sit tight for this short man.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 19: Luis Mieses

None of his five tools are off the charts, but the combination is mighty fine.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 20: Kade McClure

A cruise up the organization got stalled a bit in Charlotte.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 21: Tanner McDougal

Before injury, a promising start in Arizona.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 22: Jason Bilous

Whether in the rotation or pen, this is not an arm to sleep on.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 23: Wilfred Veras

The biggest masher in the system is still a teen.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 24: Lenyn Sosa

A rare player who slowly but steadily keeps moving higher up the prospect lists.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 25: Jonathan Stiever

It’s a wait-and-see season from this Triple-A righty, as he recovers from lat surgery.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 26: Brooks Gosswein

A very solid pro debut makes this recent add our top lefty starter for 2022.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 27: Misael González

This right fielder has mastered Arizona, so it’s on to Kannapolis.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 28: Terrell Tatum

Keep an eye on this very active bat.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 29: Carlos Pérez

By default or otherwise, he could be the primary backup backstop in 2022.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 30: Bennett Sousa

At risk of losing him (farewell, No. 34 Blake Rutherford and No. 32 McKinley Moore), here’s our top southpaw out of the pen.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 31: Luis Basabe

He’s back for a second go-around, and may actually see majors time with the White Sox in 2022.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 32: McKinley Moore

This mountain of a man is getting more and more traction in the White Sox system.
