White Sox Minor Keys: May 21, 2022

“Bull Durham” immortalized the awkwardness of minor league records, but successful franchises should indulge opportunities to celebrate their history. With that in mind, the Charlotte Knights inducted Jordan Danks into their Charlotte Baseball Round Table of Honor on Saturday.

Most of Danks’ career predates the Knights’ transition to the park now known as Truist Field, but between his one year Uptown and everything that came before in Fort Mill, S.C., Danks ended up setting Knights records for hits (449), games played (463), runs scored (250), walks (215) and at-bats (1,682). He took the Charlotte Hit King title away from Joe Borchard, who received the same honor in 2019.

Right Size Wrong Shape

It’s so much more fun reading this year, with guys who are actually playing well. “Oh, yeah, I forgot about Kohl Simas” is a nice feeling.

Augusto Barojas

Any thoughts on whether Sosa might get promoted to AAA anytime soon? He is hitting .429 with 7 homers and a 1.25 OPS in May. .396 avg and 7 homers/1.12 OPS vs righties so far. That’s good Wimpy.

Maybe a little premature but that’s a pretty phenomenal stat line. You would think they would have to consider if he keeps anything close to this up much longer.


Colson didn’t get a hit??? Trade him now!
