Yeah, so Kim is a fairly new writer for FutureSox (she also writes for the A's scout.com site). She will be covering Sox presences in Arizona, including Spring Training, Extended ST, AZL, Instructs and AFL. If you're on Twitter for Sox stuff, you should follow her.

Kind of surprised about Mitchell, but then I realized he didn't pitch last year. He was injured, I presume?

It was odd, I asked the Sox about Mitchell last year. My source said they'd get back to me and never did. Wasn't important enough to push it. No idea what was going on there, but must have been more than TJS or something.

 

Also, with him and Ziz, that's a couple fairly recent Top 10 rounds picks being released.

To be fair, John Ziznewski was a senior signing, who got a small bonus, so he probably shouldn't be thought of in that high of respect.

Trexler didn't get any hype at draft time... then all of a sudden he made some changes in camp in AZ after draft year, and his velo went from 88-91 to like 92-96, and he showed a plus breaking pitch according to not one but two different scouting sources from different sites. That's why he jumped onto the radar. Kind of shocked they let him go this quickly.

 

None of the rest are surprises.

Nice. Welcome to SoxTalk and we'd appreciate more updates.

 

 

Yes sir. Joined last year. Enjoy the site very much.

 

Spencer worked hard and put on 20 lbs during the off season. Named opening day starter.

 

Look forward to following Spence and the entire Sox farm system this season.

Adams is one of the guys we are all excited about watching this year. I can't wait to hear updates. Thanks!

It would be awesome if Davidson plays well enough in AAA to make himself a contributor with the Sox

 

Jimmy in Chicago: Hi Keith – I read a scout said Matt Davidson has shortened his swing and looks salvageable. Did you see him at all? Or hear anything along those lines?

Klaw: I’ve actually heard that too, and heard that last year he was mentally shot, but all of that doesn’t add up to anything to me until he starts hitting in games.

OD starter at W-S, I assume?
