In a bit of “you heard it here first,” the White Sox are pulling a Sergio Santos and converting another position player into a pitcher. Whom do you ask? Non other than 28 year old outfielder Miguel Negron. Negron is listed on the Barons DL, but that is dubious because he’s in the process of conversion. … I was told by a member of the front office that Negron looks as if he’s throwing in the high 90’s. I trust this person’s baseball acumen enough to take his word for it. One other thing…Negron throws left handed. One thing I know for sure is that Negron has a cannon and a right fielder’s arm, he just has the range of a center fielder.
