White Sox Minor Keys: July 9, 2019

By picking high school athletes in the second, third and fourth round, the White Sox’ draft haul was already prep-heavy to an unprecedented degree, at least this century.

Thanks to a couple late signings, the rookie leagues are going to have even more names worth watching. Over the last three days, the White Sox have officially come to terms with 22nd-rounder Logan Glass, according to Friend of the Podcast Jim Callis:

Callis also certified the signing of 34th-rounder Chase Krogman, which his family already tipped:

This should round out the 2019 draft class, which includes eight prep players.

Forbes, baby!


Logan’s dad George must be proud.  


If only Seymour had held on to see this day.


“Vaughn’s Hoem debut” – typo fyi

Speaking of Vaughn, just send this man to Winston Salem lol

I await your first column on the Honkbal Hoofdklasse


With the influx of prep level talent (both HS and international), it seems like the White Sox are heading towards another rookie level affiliate. All signing the talent is one thing but the current playing situation doesn’t exactly seem best for development.


Yeah, when they shuttered the Bristol Sox larry said they should’ve had three stateside rookie affiliates.


Note to Brooks Boyer: A Sox affiliate playing several games against the Brooklyn Cyclones and Staten Island Yankees/Pizza Rats would be good stealth marketing in the nation’s largest media market.


Impressive work by Jonathan to catch Vaughn’s homer from his spot filming behind home plate :winking_tongue_out_emoji:


Yolbert Sanchez played in the DSL today.


When do you all think, realistically, Vaughn will be in WS? Selfishly, I’m hoping he’ll stick around in Kannapolis through the month. They’ll be in my town (Lexington) in a couple weeks. I’d love to see him. Got to see Cease pitch here a few years back.
