White Sox Minor Keys: June 22, 2023

Truist Field in Charlotte
(Laura Wolff / Charlotte Knights)

Sean Burke hadn’t pitched since June 10, and it appears that he’ll miss at least another turn, as the Charlotte Knights put him on the injured list this week.

The start of Burke’s season was delayed by a shoulder issue, and he took a turn on the developmental list after his first start. But he then made seven consecutive starts on schedule, and while the numbers remained ugly, he showed steady progress in terms of in-game stamina and control.

Alas, his season is back on pause with a 7.61 ERA, and 27 walks against 34 strikeouts over 36⅔ innings. Between his struggles staying healthy and Davis Martin’s Tommy John surgery, it’s going to require some imagination to restock the White Sox rotation if Lucas Giolito, Lance Lynn and Mike Clevinger all aren’t a part of it.

Louisville 2, Charlotte 1

  • Oscar Colás went 2-for-4.
  • Lenyn Sosa, 0-for-4.
  • Carlos Pérez walked twice during a 1-for-2 night.

Mississippi 6, Birmingham 1

  • Alsander Womack went 2-for-3 with a double, walk and stolen base.
  • Bryan Ramos was 0-for-2 with two walks and a strikeout.
  • Yoelqui Céspedes singled twice, struck out twice and stole two bases.
  • Luis Mieses went 0-for-3 with a walk and two strikeouts.
  • Adam Hackenberg went 2-for-4.
  • Brooks Gosswein: 3 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 8 BB, 1 K, 1 WP, 1 HBP, 30 of 76 pitches for strikes.
  • Lulke Shilling returned to Double-A: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 1 BB, 2 K, 1 WP


*Gosswein walked the first four batters of the third inning, but only allowed one run on a sac fly because Adam Hackenberg cut down a stolen-base attempt to erase the leadoff walk.

Greensboro 8, Winston-Salem 1

  • Terrell Tatum went 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.
  • DJ Gladney, 1-for-4.
  • Same for Wilfred Veras, who doubled and struck out.
  • Loidel Chapelli was 1-for-3 with a double and a K.
  • Jared Kelley bleeds: 4 IP, 4 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 1 BB, 4 K, 1 HR, 44 of 69 pitches for strikes.

Kannapolis 5, Myrtle Beach 4 (5 innings, rain)

  • Jacob Burke homered, walked, struck out and stole two bases.
  • Peyton Pallette: 4 IP, 5 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 2 BB, 3 K, 1 HR

ACL Dodgers 7, ACL White Sox 5

  • Colson Montgomery was back at shortstop after a day off, going 0-for-2 with two walks.
  • Ryan Burrowes struck out in a pinch-hitting attempt.
  • Ronny Hernandez went 1-for-3 with his first homer, a walk and a strikeout.
  • Dario Borrero was 0-for-4.
  • Erick Hernandez singled and struck out thrice.

DSL Padres Gold 8, DSL White Sox 5 (7 innings)

  • Abraham Nunez went 1-for-2 with his third homer and a walk.

  • Franklin Reyes’ ERA is 23.63 after another tough one: 1.1 IP, 4 H, 5 R, 5 ER, 3 BB, 2 K, 2 HR, 1 WP

Hopefully Chris Getz is fired along with Hahn and KW. But alas, this is the White Sox.

#3 for HOF

We will be luck if he’s not promoted into Hahn’s role after Rick becomes a special adviser to the chairman.


Little off topic but man has the college world series been fun, what an awesome game last night. Really hoping Skenes doesnt fall to the Twins at 5…. not sure why he isnt the consensus number 2 pick, sure the high velo arms carry injury risk but he is effortless 99-101 mph and doesnt walk anyone, super impressive.


Some thoughts.

Gosswein looks like he’s ready to slide into the Sox rotation if anyone goes down.

Birmingham had a lot of baserunners for only scoring 1 run. 10 from the listed guys.

Kelley showed good control. 64% strikes.

With 8 BB in 3 IP, that sounds about right


MLB.com’s latest mock has OF Chase Davis going to the Sox. With a name like that, I can only imagine what his plate discipline looks like.

Skenes #1 to Pittsburgh.


Abraham Nunez currently has the highest single season OPS of any DSL White Sox since 2006 (which is how far back the Fangraphs DSL stats go), minimum 40 PAs. Obviously he’s had a much smaller sample than players who’ve played the whole season.


Has the only player in the top 7 of said leaderboard with a BABIP under .360 (.321).


In 3 June starts, Pallette has pitched 10.1 innings and has a 6.10 ERA.
