Carlton Perkins brings a big, raw arm into the White Sox system.

White Sox select RHP Carlton Perkins in the 15th round (No. 449 overall)

Pale Hose loading up the pen, and this righty is another raw arm that could wreak some havoc

With the 449th overall pick in the 2023 MLB draft, the White Sox selected right-handed pitcher Carlton Perkins from Cowley County Community College in Arkansas City, Kan.

Another junior college arm, Perkins, made 21 appearances primarily out of the bullpen for the Tigers in 2023. He went 1-1 with a 6.13 ERA, one save, 21 walks, and 50 strikeouts. He owns a very respectable 11.34 K/9, which could be an indication there is some raw and/or deceptive power in that arm.

The 20-year-old hails from Lee’s Summit, Mo., and he played for the Trenton Thunder in the MLB Draft League, where he went 1-0 with a 4.15 ERA in 13 innings. The White Sox seem to be stocking up on arms this year; more possibilities for the big league mega pen.
