Goldstein:

Brandon Short, OF, White Sox (High-A Winston Salem)

An all but unknown 28th-round pick out of a Florida junior college in 2008, Short’s solid-but-unspectacular showing leading up to this season wasn’t enough to get him on anybody’s radar, but scouts are getting forced to take notice now. The 21-year-old skinny outfielder has above-average speed and little else in the way of tools, but with two hits in all three weekend games, his batting line is up to .372/.396/.531 for the Warthogs. As you can tell by the line, he doesn’t walk much and he’s not a big power guy. He is also not good enough defensively to stay in center field long-term. For now he’s just an interesting hitter, but anything out of the 28th round is an impressive find.

  1. I just have this to say….Brandon was my roommate in college and he is a GREAT person in general and I think an even better player…He shows a lot of consistency and brings alot to the table when talking prospect….In my opinion he will be ready for the bigs by next season, and I will be there to watch him do his thing just like in college…the kid is great and he deserves it all
