With the 539th overall pick in the 2023 MLB draft, the White Sox selected left-handed pitcher Anthony Imhoff from Pima Community College in Tuscon, Ariz.

Imhoff is a hulking lefty, standing at 6´8´´ and 190 pounds. He’s got a fastball that sits 88-90 mph with plenty of room for growth, and a nasty sweeping slider. Another junior college arm, Imhoff, made 16 starts for the Aztecs in 2023. He went 10-5 with a 3.78 ERA and an impressive 12 K/9. The 21-year-old earned the ACCAC Division I Pitcher of the Week honors twice this year, and he also threw a complete-game shutout, giving up only two hits with nine strikeouts and one walk on 86 pitches.
