Good to see Jordan Danks staying consistent in the batters box. Nothing earth shattering but still, our farm system needs that from him. Now if he slowly improve his BA and his OBP, he could become a major prospect for the Sox's outfield again.

How about that, the light hitting Dash light up a stud pitching prospect.

You really still are hanging on to hope? Even after the interview with Buddy Bell basically said his swing didn't respond well to the coaching and reverted back to the norm? He's going to be 25 years old in less than two months, I just don't see it.

I see a 4th outfielder or a 2nd division starter at best.

I keep watching Kuhn's stats . Is he that good? How high is his ceiling and when will he be moved to Charlotte?

Which is what I see too.

Maybe I should have said "if he continues to develop and progress he might be an asset in some way shape or form for the parent club or another team". All that I'm wanting to see is any of the OF prospects develop into ballplayers for the South Side as a fan, that's all. Call it what anyone will, false hope, homerism, whatever. And if some/any of them turn out something then all the better. I guess that is hope in a relative sense, sure.

 

I will tell you this: from what I've seen of Jordan Danks when he used to play ball at UT to today, the kid has talent. Just needs to put it together. Yes, time is against him but so what? If he doesn't make it as a starter, then what were we expecting as a 19th/later a 7th rounder?

Yes. He could be a prototype leadoff hitter. Soon I imagine, him and Drew Garcia will probably swap places after the first half is over.

Wilkins got moved up to the 3-hole despite being in a slump. Still doing a good job of drawing walks and not striking out too much. Just seems to be getting a little unlucky.

Hmm... I just reread that part of the interview several times... and I'm not sure I would interpret it the way you did.

 

Bell seems to think Danks was over-coached over the winter... and was over-thinking his approach at the plate.

 

His recent changes don't imply that he scrapped improvements to his swing.

And I think him becoming a 4th outfielder would be very valuable. He's a strong defender who's capable of playing all three OF positions. His left-handed bat would work well behind Rios and Viciedo. Also, anything that gives John Danks another reason to stay long-term is a plus.

You mean the interview where Buddy Bell said, "Jordan Danks looks better than I've ever seen him"?

Problem is...right now our 4th OF keeps winning games for us.

He's been slumping again for the last week or so.
