UPDATE: A lot more on Terry Doyle here: http://soxbronzetitan.wordpress.com/tag/terry-doyle/
ORIGINAL: From the ‘Man among boys’ section of the 5/14 Prospect Hotsheet:
Terry Doyle, rhp, White Sox.
Your minor league strikeouts leader isn’t Stephen Strasburg, Mike Minor or Julio Teheran. It’s a 2008 37th-round pick out of Boston College. This season, Doyle, 24, is 4-2, 0.96 with 58 strikeouts in 47 innings. Last week he was sensational (14 IP, 6 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 24 Ks), but that’s not that surprising. He has pitched well ever since he became a pro—he was second in the Pioneer League in strikeouts last year—but he’s been treated as an organizational fill-in, spending two seasons in rookie ball despite his age and college experience. Doyle may just be an older pitcher beating up on younger prospects, but he’s pitched well enough to earn the right to prove he can handle competition more his own age.
Brandon Short and his 26-game hitting streak gets a mention too.
Doyle threw 7 innings of 1 BB / 10 K shutout ball yesterday:
