White Sox Minor Keys: April 15, 2018

Micker Adolfo has another big game before the rain calls it off

The adverse weather that resulted in four postponements at the major league level also affected its share of minor league games. Kannapolis’ game was scratched while Charlotte and Winston-Salem had theirs shortened.

Micker Adolfo must think defense is for the birds.


Nice to see his K rate way down. Basabe had his around 30%, but is now down to a reasonable level as well.

I don’t think Adolfo is going to be a good defender, as he seems to be quite large and getting larger. He may have a Viciedo thing going on: large dude with a cannon.
