We can, just not for more than $300k. It sounds like he is an okay prospect, but nothing crazy, and bonuses are down with the new hard pools, so we should be able to sign him for $300k.

Thanks, appreciate the explanation

 

I'd love that...wonder if it's better to get a handful of okay prospects or go all out for a Robert

Kiley McDaniel was talking about this in his chat a while back: whether its better to spend all your money on a few (or one) high upside guys or spread it out over a ton of lower level guys. There are so many guys who simply develop later and get passed over in their initial J2 or are very risky that you would be able to sign cheap, and we see so many of them in the majors, its weird no teams spread the money out. The only real downside is that you would have to operate several DSL teams and that would cost an extra few million per year.

 

The strategy I think we should use is to go after the big guys when we can, but concentrate on the lower level guys because we don't really have the big international draw like some other teams do, so we would be working at a disadvantage going against other bigger name teams for the same guys. I would have us operate two DSL teams standard and add more if we go big on a few guys and then pick up a ton of sub $10k guys. This would make sure we are always bring in good numbers to increase our odds, and when we do go for the big guy, bringing in even more guys to make up for the lower talent level of the players besides the big one.

Awesome, loved Tejada but I thought CWS can't sign any J2 guys for another year

 

No guys over $300k. They can sign as many $300k guys as will fit under the caps.

Any chance he is the 26th man and makes a spot start when we play the Royals in the double header? I guess it would depend on if they want to make a 40-man roster move that early or not (Rodon is currently on the 10-day dl and could probably be transferred to the 60-day).

I know I'm late but White Sox Dave has been saying early to mid May for Kopech, for whatever it's worth

I wonder if they have an amount of starts in mind for Kopech at AAA?

 

(For example, if he has 3 strong starts in AAA, is that the green light he needs to an MLB call up?)

I definitely think they want him up and throwing innings at the MLB level asap. If he has 3-4 more starts like he did in his season opener I see nobody blocking him from coming up.

If they still have him down today, there really isn't much of a good reason to not wait until after the Super Two deadline and call him up in the middle of June.

Any word on where Victor Diaz is or what his condition is? I can't recall hearing his name at all this spring.

He's on the DL. Again. Other than that I don't know, but our AZ correspondent will be checking on Extended ST this week and I will ask her to look for him.

MLB Pipeline?Verified account @MLBPipeline 51m51 minutes ago Blake Rutherford messed around and got a triple double for @WSDashBaseball today: 3-for-5 with 3 doubles & a walk. The #WhiteSox No. 7 prospect is 2nd in @MiLB with 7 two-baggers - in just 10 games. http://atmlb.com/2oD91Ca

Not sure if this guy is a pitcher or outfielder, but he is another slightly older guy we just signed. Best I can tell is he was an outfielder that got passed over and recently converted to pitching and may be able to hit 100mph. I guess we won't know for another couple years at best.
