Baseball America conducted its post-draft re-rack of the farm systems for all 30 teams, and Bill Mitchell updated the White Sox’s system.
There’s a considerable amount of shift in the system considering 1) Jake Burger is the only graduation of note, and 2) no new White Sox draft pick cracks the top five. That said, Oscar Colás wasn’t official when the initial list was published, which explains his absence.
|Colson Montgomery||1||Colson Montgomery|
|Yoelqui Céspedes||2||Oscar Colás|
|Norge Vera||3||Bryan Ramos|
|Wes Kath||4||Norge Vera|
|José Rodríguez||5||José Rodríguez|
|Andrew Dalquist||6||Sean Burke|
|Jake Burger||7||Peyton Pallette|
|Jared Kelley||8||Jonathan Cannon|
|Sean Burke||9||Noah Schultz|
|Matthew Thompson||10||Yoelqui Céspedes|
If you’re curious about what an incumbent-only list looks like, Lenyn Sosa, Romy González and Yolbert Sánchez would fill out the remainder of the top 10 if you removed Pallette, Cannon and Schultz.
I appreciate the conservative placement of Schultz, as he barely pitched this past spring due to mono, especially compared to the major-conference work of Pallette and Cannon, although Tommy John surgery means that Pallette’s junior year was shot.
Davis Martin made the biggest jump, going from off the board to No. 15. Had he started the year on the list, I wonder if he would’ve finished higher, anchoring effect and all that. Ramos also moved up from No. 11 to No. 3.
As for prospects taking tumbles, Wes Kath fell from fourth to 21st, while Drew Dalquist dropped from sixth to 22nd. Neither was in my preseason top 10, and aside from Romy González’s year in sickness and poor health, I’m pretty pleased with my hit rate.
