    We’re stuck. We don’t have the prospects to land the big rentals but the lower level options might not be a big enough upgrade?

    2021 White Sox draft selections and signings thread

    I’ve seen Terrell Tatum hit all year for NC State. Solid player, had the huge HR against Leiter in the CWS. Has some potential but raw. Who I really wanted was Tyler McDonough who Boston picked in the 3rd.

    Would we ever call up Beckham to play 2b?

    Option for a super utility type player in rounds 3-5ish? 14. Tyler McDonough, 2B/OF, North Carolina State (BA Rank: 128) Grade: R-So. • Ht: 5-10 • Wt: 180 • B-T: R-R • Commitment/Drafted: Never Drafted .341 | .428 | .641 | 223 AB | 57 R | 76 H | 15 HR | 44 RBI | 33 BB | 46 K | 13 SB McDonough rated as the No. 283 player in the 2020 class but went undrafted and headed back to North Carolina State for his third season, where for the third time he hit over .300 and continued to add more in-game power to his game. Listed at 5-foot-10, 180 pounds, McDonough doesn’t jump out at you with loud tools, but he’s become a player who scouts appreciate the more they watch him. He does everything on the field at a high level and is the sort of skilled gamer who area scouts are drawn to. McDonough controls the zone well, doesn’t swing and miss much and takes his share of walks, and this season he hit a career-high 15 homers. Scouts have said those homers have come with a longer swing and more aggressive hacks, and his 17% strikeout rate was the highest of his career, which shows a slight shift in his approach. McDonough has spread his homers all over the field and his exit velocities are impressive for a player of his size, so perhaps solid power will be part of his game at the next level as well. McDonough has spent most of his time in center field for the Wolfpack, but he has the defensive versatility to play all over the place, including second base, third base and perhaps even shortstop in a pinch. He’s a better runner underway than he is out of the box and went 30-for-36 (83%) over his career in stolen base attempts. McDonough has plenty of promising statistical indicators and he could go off the board in the second-to-fourth-round range.

    After watching him, absolutely. But I’m no scout! There’s tons of videos of him from this season. Take a look and let me know what you think.

    I’m ok with that. He would be a plug and play reliever. He’s got nasty stuff.

    Has Kevin Kopps been discussed yet? I’d be a fan of taking him in the 3-5th rounds. He was pretty dang dynamic reliever for Arkansas. I know he’s not the prototypical MLB reliever but he can pitch. im talking my book here, but I’m a huge fan of Jose Torres from NC State. He’s going to a great MLB player imo.
