Baseball-Intellect: White Sox Top Prospects of 2011

 

For those interested, here is my White Sox top prospect list.  Links are below:

White Sox Top Prospects, No's 1 - 5

White Sox Top Prospects, No's 6 - 15

Some thoughts...I really like Chris Sale.  He would have been a straight A-, but I'm not fully confident that the White Sox will stick with him as a starter.

I know his mechanics got a ton of debate here, so I addressed those concerns and his arm action specifically. 

I also found Rienzo's mechanics on the unique side (somewhat Lincecum-esque)...I think I underrated Addison Reed a bit, and could revise his grade before all is said and done.  I look forward to addressing any feedback, but I probably won't be able to address it till tomorrow afternoon.  Here is the full list...

1. Chris Sale | LHP | Age – 22 | Grade – A-/B+

2. Brent Morel | 3b | Age – 24 | Grade – B-

3. Jared Mitchell | OF | Age – 22 | Grade – B-

4. Jacob Petricka | RHP | Age – 21 | Grade – B-

5. Trayce Thompson | OF | Age – 20 | Grade – C+

6. Addison Reed | RHP | Age – 23 | Grade – C+

7. Eduardo Escobar | SS | Age – 22 | Grade – C+

8. Tyler Flowers | C/1b | Age – 25 | Grade – C+

9. Greg Infante | RHP | Age – 23 | Grade – C+

10. Thomas Royse | RHP | Age – 22 | Grade – C+

11. Andre Rienzo | RHP | Age – 22 | Grade – C+

12. Tyler Saladino | SS | Age – 21 | Grade – C+

13. Brandon Short | OF | Age – 22 | Grade – C+
