White Sox Minor Keys: Aug. 6, 2019

Before MLB Pipeline released its list of top farm systems after the draft, there was quite a divide between the first two that published their lists. Baseball America still ranked the White Sox at No. 4, but FanGraphs said the Sox slid all the way down to ninth.

Jim Callis agrees with the latter take:

9. Chicago White Sox
Preseason Top 10 Rank:
No. 4

The White Sox have the most top-heavy system in the game with five of the top 43 prospects but not a lot of clear standouts beyond them. Developing pitching will be key, especially with Kopech and right-hander Dane Dunning recovering from Tommy John surgery, though righty Jonathan Stiever has impressed in his first full pro season.

All these plebs screaming at Hahn to bring up Robert like idiots. The REAL Galaxy brain demand is screaming at Hahn to bring up Benyamin Bailey.


Damn I feel sorry for Keith (NOT trolling)!


DSL Sox have 6 players hitting.339 and higher between the ages of18 to 20. Hopefully this can continue. Future Sox


That’s a funny age range to look at for the DSL. Should be 16-18

Keep Keith Law away from Luis Robert.
