South Side Sox Top 100

Countdown of White Sox 100 top prospects, 51-100 determined by staff, 1-50 determined by staff + SSS vote.

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 1: Eloy Jiménez

Of course, Eloy is no longer a prospect — but he was four months and 50,000 words ago, when we embarked on the most thorough ranking of the White Sox system ever

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 2: Michael Kopech

Yeah, we know he’s a major leaguer now; didn’t stop every outlet from keeping the fireballer on their prospect lists for 2019

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 3: Dylan Cease

The top active pitching prospect in the system is on the ‘Kopech track’ to a South Side debut later this season

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 4: Luis Robert

La Pantera is on the prowl, as the most exciting prospect in the entire White Sox system

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 5: Nick Madrigal

Small in stature but massive in skills, our newest first-rounder kicks off the Top 5

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 6: Dane Dunning

Yes, if you’re counting, it’s now three of the past four blue chips on the list having undergone major surgery in the past year

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 7: Micker Adolfo

Injuries threaten to derail a true gem unearthed by Marco Paddy

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 8: Blake Rutherford

One of the most aggressive assignments in the entire White Sox system has set this right fielder back on his heels to begin 2019

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 9: Jake Burger

It’s been a long road back, but our top hot corner prospect is about to begin his 2019 season after devastating Achilles surgery

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 10: Luis Basabe

With an arm strong enough for right field, enough speed to cause havoc on the bases, and a developing hit tool, superstardom could be on the horizon

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 11: Gavin Sheets

Another big bat having a rough early adjustment in Birmingham, the first sacker still needs to flash more power

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 12: Luis González

After an impressive 2018, this versatile outfielder has had a slow start in Birmingham

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 13: Zack Collins

Big power, and improved defense, mean this backstop’s time is coming soon on the South Side

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 14: Steele Walker

A quick call-up to Winston-Salem keeps the ebullient center fielder on track for Birmingham in 2020

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 15: Zack Burdi

The righty flamethrower is settling in with the Barons on his long road back from TJS

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 16: Ian Hamilton

A non-baseball injury this spring seems to have thrown off this fireballer’s entire season

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 17: Alec Hansen

As a starter or reliever, even after a disastrous 2018, the tall righthander has powerful upside

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 18: Tyler Johnson

A lat strain has kept this bright bullpen prospect in extended spring training

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 19: Jimmy Lambert

Getting his feet under him at Birmingham, the righthander continues to surprise

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 21: Laz Rivera

After burning through A-ball in 2018, our top shortstop has hit a wall in Birmingham

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 22: Jordan Stephens

It’s been a rough start to 2019 for the presupposed ‘first callup’ to the South Side rotation

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 20: Seby Zavala

In honor of today’s call-up to the White Sox, we’re jumping ahead a few spots on the list to profile our newest catcher

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 23: Kodi Medeiros

Our top left-handed starter prospect is suffering from another bout of wildness to start his 2019 season

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 24: Konnor Pilkington

The second-best LHSP prospect in the organization earned an instantaneous promotion with a hot start to 2019

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 26: Luis Curbelo

It’s been a very rough start to 2019 — but with plenty of time to right the season

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 27: Jonathan Stiever

Making his way steadily through the system, the righthander looks to put a full year in at Kannapolis

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 28: Bernardo Flores

This smooth-tossing southpaw currently resides in Birmingham, but could well be the first call-up for a White Sox spot start

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 29: Spencer Adams

As opportunities arise with the big club, the young righthander is struggling to find his footing (and role) in Charlotte

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 30: Lenyn Sosa

Even younger than Bryce Bush, this shortstop is likewise fielding his aggressive assignment in Kannapolis

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 25: Bryce Bush

After accepting his specs, this very young cornerman should bound up our prospect charts

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 31: Ryan Burr

Continuing to grow into a major league bullpen role, this tall righthander is the organization’s top non-closer relief prospect

South Side Sox Top Prospect No. 32: Lincoln Henzman

A little slow out of the gate in 2019, this converted closer has the stuff to advance to Double-A before the season is over
