Here are the prospects ranked 16th through 30th in the White Sox system, with capsules for each. This section of the list is deeper on talent than it has been in a long time, not surprisingly.

What do you think? Who were we too high or low on, in your view?

Tomorrow, the full list goes up.

Expected to see Call/Fisher in this list, I guess they maintained your interest even as the system beefed up.

Quite a fall for Micker. Really hope he can stay healthy and have a season here.

I think if guys like Call and Curbelo are top 15 prospects, then this system probably isn't as good as people think it is. It's very top heavy. The next 2 years are very important.

The 2016 draft is looking very good. And that's not just me or FS saying it, that's the consensus across the industry. Call and Fisher both have a lot of potential, in addition obviously to Collins, Hansen and Burdi, and others as well.

Adolfo should have made bigger strides this year and didn't. Some of that was injuries, but that's becoming a recurring theme too.

I didn't realize that Luis Martinez took such a step in the right direction.

Agreed. Which is why I don't think it is too crazy that some analysts may rank us closer in the 10-15 range. Sox have definitely improved their system though.

Curbelo's ceiling keeps him high while Call's production in CF keeps him. You're not going to find world beaters in any systems 15 range, but both of them have the ability to shoot up.

I'll talk about the top 15 when FS releases the top 15.

As for this list, I dont know I like a lot of the names here. Michalczewski is still only going to be 22 when the season starts and yea he's struggled lately but there was legitimate reason to be excited about him and he hasn't completely drowned despite being pushed through the org very aggressively. I think we could be pleasantly surprised by what he can do with a full year to catch his breath and repeat at Birmingham.

This season is make or break for Michalczewski, as he really needs to show something or else he will be written off as a prospect

I doubt he ever pans out as he has not displayed a decent enough hit tool to have much value

Whatever happened to the 1-15 list? I don't see it anywhere and it was supposed to be posted the day after the 16-30 thread ?

It was in PHT, just like the others. But the main final list was never migrated back to the FS area, it's still in PHT.
