    2018 MLB Draft

    Just from the free portion of the article it looks like the top 3 are Mize, Stewart, Liberatore.

    Yeah but even if he knows he will lose the appeal it would buy us more time for Smith to hopefully get healthy so we don't have to worry about playing Alfredo Gonzalez

    Can players appeal PED suspensions? Minor league DL is only 7 days so if Castillo could do that we theoretically could have him available until Smith is back.

    Who was that emergency goalie the blackhawks used? He did pretty well in a squeeze. Maybe he is available.
  6. I'm pretty sure Smith is still on the 40 man. Edit: yep, still on the 40 man http://m.whitesox.mlb.com/cws/roster/40-man/

    Probably the guy we just signed to play in AAA. He has a ton of ML experience and none of the other AAA are really forcing the issue. If it's a serious injury for Leury maybe the Sox should have one of the older MIF in AAA start seeing some time in the OF in case we need them.

    White Sox Sign Alex Presley (on CHA Active roster)

    Well looks like he may get his shot real quick.

    There seems to have been a ton of injuries and turnover at Charlotte lately. Also Casey Gillaspie is listed as on the suspended list, so I don't know what's up with that. EDIT: Just saw future sox said temp inactive list. Still wonder what's up.

    Just looking through hitting stats this year (haven't gotten to pitchers yet) plus guys that I heard are towards the top of the draft Josh Jung 3B/SS Texas Tech - started showing more power this year and has a sub 1 K/BB ratio Bryson Stott SS UNLV - speedy SS with almost twice as many BBs as Ks; 29 doubles this year, so hopefully he adds the strength to put a few of those over the fence Andrew Vaughn 1B Cal - masher with high walks, low strikeouts; might be able to play an OF corner; not a prototypical size for a power guy Matt Wallner RF Southern Miss - definite corner OF with big power and at least average contact Drew Mendoza 3B FSU - intriguing power/contact profile at third, didn't make the jump this year, well thought of by prospect evaluators Michael Toglia OF UCLA - big power (college and cape); lot of walks and lot of strikeouts; may be playing 1B this year, but one evaluator said he is a definite corner OF Logan Davidson SS Clemson - reminds me of Jeremy Eierman in that he has speed & power but may end up at third; Davidson probably has better contact skills Adley Rutschman C Oregon State - good eye, good defense, developing power Will Wilson 2B/3B NC State - good power, improving eye; not much speed, so questionable range at 2B; young for grade so may have more development left Logan Wyatt OF Louisville - great eye and double power right now; could have a Trevor Larnach like rise if he gains more power Thomas Dillard C/OF Ole Miss - good power, good eye, good speed; not sure anything is plus; if he is a catcher he is much more interesting Shea Langliers C Baylor - good power, good eye, worryingly low batting average this year; apparently a good defender Braden Shewmake SS Texas A&M - showed great power/speed/contact/defense as a freshman but regressed this year; could be #1 pick, could be late rounds And then there are all the high school guys which perfect game has ranked. The big ones there seem to be Bobby Witt Jr as a potential 5 tool SS, CJ Abrams as a speedy SS with emerging power, Rece Hinds as a power hitting 3B, and Riley Greene and Jerrion Ealy as good hitters in the outfield. The two pitchers who's names I hear the most are HS LHP Hunter Barco and TCU LHP Nick Lodolo. Pretty nice that the top 2 guys right now are both lefties and the top HS hitter seems to be an exciting tooled up SS.

    Oh man, I already have a whole file of guys I like for 2019.

    So it looks like that top 4 guys might have just become a top 3. I really hope we aren't the one left without a guy

    I feel like Pipeline always errs towards the middle grades on players. Even in their write up of him they talk about his "considerable power potential" and the give him a 55. For Gorman they even said how he has 70 grade power and then they gave him a 60. Casas is said to have some of the best raw power in the draft and they give him a 55. It's one reason I really like how Fangraphs does the present and future grades because with Pipeline its hard to tell who they think has good power that will play versus great power that may play.
