Just like Baseball America last week, MLB.com revised its top prospect lists to account for the newly drafted players.
The White Sox jumped five spaces in the overall organizational rankings, sitting 25th on the strength of Colson Montgomery’s jump to the No. 60 overall prospect, and Oscar Colás on the cusp of joining him.
As for the list, Jim Callis and Co. are higher on Noah Schultz than BA, placing him third, which may also give the system a little more juice in their eyes. Here’s the MLB Pipeline preseason top 10 compares to how it stands now.
|Colson Montgomery||1||Colson Montgomery|
|Oscar Colás||2||Oscar Colás|
|José Rodríguez||3||Noah Schultz|
|Yoelqui Céspedes||4||Lenyn Sosa|
|Norge Vera||5||Bryan Ramos|
|Wes Kath||6||Norge Vera|
|Jake Burger||7||José Rodríguez|
|Romy González||8||Peyton Pallette|
|Bryan Ramos||9||Sean Burke|
|Jared Kelley||10||Cristian Mena|
If you take recent draft picks Schultz and Pallette out of the equation, then Davis Martin and Yoelqui Céspedes slip into the top 10.
Wes Kath and Drew Dalquist continue to take the biggest hits, with Kath slipping 10 spots to No. 16, and Dalquist hanging by a thread at No. 29.
The most surprising name is Ryan Burrowes, who slipped into the rankings at No. 22. I’m mostly happy to see it for the detailed scouting report on a DSL guy whose numbers in his age-17 season are worth following (.258/.374/.384), even if he turns 18 today.
- Yolbert Sánchez went 2-for-5.
- Jake Burger, 1-for-5 with two strikeouts.
- Carlos Pérez was 3-for-4 with a double and a stolen base.
- Adam Haseley went 1-for-4 with a homer and two strikeouts.
*The White Sox promoted an outfielder from Birmingham to Charlotte, but it was Craig Dedelow, who went 1-for-4 with a strikeout in his Triple-A debut fater playing the entirety of the last two seasons with the Barons.
- José Rodríguez reached double digits in homers while going 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.
- Oscar Colás wore the collar and silver sombrero.
- Yoelqui Céspedes went 1-for-3 with a walk and a strikeout.
*Rodríguez is now slugging .776 in August, and making Barons history along the way.
