While Charlotte will play on for another few weeks, the other three White Sox full-season affiliates closed out their first halves on Sunday, and only one of them can call it a success.
Birmingham: Finished 27-42, the worst record in the Southern League.
Winston-Salem: Finished second in the Carolina League Southern Division at 38-26, including 20 wins in their last 26 games.
Kannapolis: Finished 28-40, the second-worst record in the South Atlantic League.
While they’re off, the Arizona Rookie League will start its season Monday night. I’ll have an AZL White Sox season preview at some point after the roster is released.
