Fall/Winter Ball: Week 1

Trying this? Maybe?

Arizona Fall League

The White Sox AFL class features 8 players  (3 position players, 5 pitchers) playing on the Glendale Desert Dogs alongside prospects from the Dodgers, Red Sox, Twins, and Mets:

  • SS Colson Montgomery
  • 3B Bryan Ramos
  • OF Jacob Burke
  • LHSP Jake Eder
  • RHSP Josimar Cousin
  • RHRP Jordan Leasure
  • LHRP Fraser Ellard
  • RHRP Adisyn Coffey

Montgomery is the highest ranked prospect participating this year. Him, Ramos, and Eder are looking to make up for lost time from injury, while the relief corps will be trying to demonstrate 40-man readiness against some solid competition. Cousin and Burke will be looking to build off of promising but not eyepopping seasons en route to taking the next step towards the majors.

Winter Ball:

It will be a little bit before we know the full slate of winter ball participants. Oscar Colas will be there, and Wilfred Veras returns to Estrellas de Oriente for a second year. Both should benefit from extra ABs and OF reps. Veras probably did enough to merit R5 protection as is, but a good showing potentially earns him a close look at ST.

The Week Ahead:

The Glendale Desert Dogs play six games this week, with an off day on Sunday. Jake Eder is scheduled to start on Tuesday. Live streams should be available for at least Monday (10/2) and Friday (10/6), both are 8:30 CST starts.

Colson popped out, but then made a great defensive play on a hit-and-run.

Jase Bowen takes off from 2nd. Benny Montgomery hits a ball between Colson/Ramos, Colson throws out Bowen at home.

Here's that play:

And here's Burke's OF assist:

Ramos also had an apparently impressive snag on a 106mph liner, but the camera didn't catch that one.

Ramos and Burke both finish 1-4 with a 2B each. Colson was hitless, but the only Desert Dog who didn't strike out. Hit a couple hard, but right at guys.

Game 2: GDD vs. SCO (Gameday | No Stream)

Eder gets the 8:30 CST start. Burke on the bench after a solid game yesterday, Colson and Ramos are batting 2/3 again.

No stream or statcast today, but highlights should still trickle out on Twitter.

Fun Fact: The opposing starter is RHP Tekoah Roby (Cards #5), part of the return for Jordan Montgomery who had an excellent playoff start today.

Leasure threw a perfect 2K 9th to force extras, but the Dogs strand the free runner and the next guy out of the pen got walked off to lose 1-0.

Still, a total of 5 no hit innings from Sox arms is cool. Would love to have seen it, but the league doesn't want to invest in streaming the full slate for whatever reason, and all the pitching/prospect folks were at the Tiedemann game.

White Sox: Jake Eder, LHP (No. 5), Glendale Desert Dogs
It’s safe to say Tuesday’s matchup against Scottsdale was a pitcher’s duel. The two squads totaled eight combined hits in 10 innings, none of which were allowed by Eder. The former Vanderbilt star fanned three batters in three hitless and scoreless innings in his first Fall League appearance. The start was a good opening salvo for Eder, who was traded to the White Sox from the Marlins

Sox arms combined for 5IP 0ER 0H 3BB 5K yesterday. Cousin is scheduled to start on Friday, and there should be a live stream for that one.

Desert Dogs are actually putting up runs this game!

Burke still leading off: 1 run scored off a walk. No Ramos or Colson.

He also had a SB it looks like.
