What made the club decide to pick Jared Mitchell, and how high is his ceiling?
I would have to say the biggest reason is his athleticism. He possesses the tools that cannot be taught, the main one being game-changing type of speed. Speed is the only tool in the game that you can use both offensively and defensively, and hopefully we see him using his tools in a White Sox uniform very soon. Jared has a very high ceiling that he will hopefully begin to develop soon.
Which pitchers you drafted excite you the most as far as star potential?
Probably the first three high school pitchers (2nd round lefty David Holmberg, 4th round righty Matthew Heidenreich and 7th round lefty Justin Jones). We have not taken many high school pitchers early in the draft in some time, so I am really pumped up about getting them with our player development people and seeing what we can do with them.
