Trayce Thompson. Today, prospect expert John Sickels did a prospect report on Trayce Thompson. Here is just a small excerpt from the report:
He's a very good center fielder. I remain quite impressed with his tools, and I think the chance that he'll figure out how to use them is getting better. It isn't a slam dunk, and he needs a full year against Double-A pitching (and probably another year against Triple-A pitching) to fully adapt. That would put him challenging for a regular job in 2015, which seems like a long time from now, but he'll still be just 24.Another White Sox prospect list. South Side Sox released their top 10 list yesterday in two parts (part one and part deux). It really is a great list with tons and tons of content and I suggest reading it. SSS went against the grain of basically all national lists with putting both Scott Snodgress and Andre Rienzo ahead of Erik Johnson (Johnson was a top 4 prospect on almost all lists). Recently, I've seen more and more lists place Jefferson Olacio toward the top (comes in at #10 at SSS). Check out my profile on him if you aren't familiar with Olacio.
Hooray, we're not last. Keith Law released his farm rankings($) and the White Sox aren't last unlike last year. However, they are still near the bottom of the league at 28th. John Sickels released his last week and the White Sox are also 28th on the list (Detroit is last, by the way).
ICYMI. The White Sox signed former top Red Sox prospect Lars Anderson on Friday and I started spring training previews with the outfield.
