    QUOTE (SpainSOXfan09 @ Jun 7, 2012 -> 12:46 AM) Trayce Thompson still hitting pretty poorly in A ball. Not sure how much time he will be given past this year before the BUST label starts getting floated. A 21 yr old playing in High A should not even be in the running for any consideration for the Bust label. It's a small sample size, but his June splits look encouraging. .259/.344/.630/.973 Give him some time. Those that follow T2 know that he's a raw prospect, high upside. I wouldn't be surprised to see him in the minors until he's 24.

    2012 White Sox draft picks

    QUOTE (danman31 @ Jun 8, 2012 -> 09:36 PM) Good finds everyone. I was a bit fried after updating the draft tracker so I've been too lazy to follow up on these guys. I did catch that 26th rounder Jason Coats tore his ACL on May 20. He was thought to be a potential first rounder a couple years ago, but took a bit of a step back the last two seasons. He was still first-team all-Mountain West the last two years so that says something still. The injury explains why he slipped so far, but I still like the pick. The crappy thing for him is that the article linked above said he turned down 6 figures in the 12th round last year. He won't get that in the 26th. At least he has a degree, but that sucks. I found a good story on the 36 rounder Matt Patishall here. Basically if the offer from the Sox is a good one, Patishall MAY sign.

    Baseball Instinct, LLC · 18 like this 2 minutes ago · Astros sign #1 pick Carlos Correa. Deal rumored to be around $5mm which is about $2.2mm under the slot. That will give them enough to sign either McCullers or Virant. Impressive haul if they land either.

    2012 MLB draft talk

    Well I was close, guessing a 1b. Keon Barnum. Keon Barnum Rank: 66 King HS (Fla.), Senior Height: 6'4", Weight: 220 Position: 1B DOB: 01/16/1993 Bats: L, Throws: L Commitment: Miami For a player to profile at first, teams will typically want to see plenty of power and run production potential. Barnum, a Florida prep product, has both. A big, strong physical specimen, Barnum can generate a lot of bat speed and has the ability to drive the ball to all parts of the ballpark. He shows most of his home run power to the pull side, but there's plenty of raw pop there all-around. Barnum's fine defensively at first, and some have even asked to see him play an outfield corner. Like many young hitters with power, Barnum will get long with his swing at times and try to muscle the ball out. The ability to make adjustments and have a more refined approach will likely come with time and experience.

    Good stuff, though I would list Dunn as a B, Beckham as a C (especially his HOT bat recently).
