If you take Baseball America’s word for it, the White Sox have two top 100 prospects, and not just Colson Montgomery.
BA re-racked its list after the draft, and while Montgomery is holding steady at No. 38, he’s joined by Oscar Colás at No. 99.
It’s still hard for me to think that Colás has the trade value of a typical rising top-100 prospect, because we just saw how he was valued on an open-ish market, and the White Sox signed him for $2.7 million. That’s probably more money than it sounds like considering most teams have such signings lined up years in advance, whereas the Sox only had to wait one signing period to line up the money.
That said, if Colás’ left-handed bat can translate to the majors sooner rather than later while playing quality defense in a corner, then trading him is the last thing they’re going to want to do. Just don’t hold Saturday’s performance against him.
