FutureSox reviews the 2010 Birmingham Barons

Norris:

Jim Gallagher ended up being named the Barons team MVP for 2010.  Deservedly so, as he led the team in most offensive categories.  I’ve already stated before that I see him as a Ross Gload type if he were to make it to the majors.  He certainly is passionate enough to put forth the effort to get there.  I expect him to be in Charlotte for 2011.

Anthony Carter was named Barons pitcher of the year after having a fantastic run as a closer.  Hopefully he can build on that and put himself into consideration as a future big league reliever.  Deunte Heath pitched excellently for the Barons in relief, striking out 84 in 57.2 innings.  The White Sox made a good call giving him a second chance.  Both Carter and Heath should be in Charlotte in 2011.

Stats:

Gallagher (25 years old): .590 PA, 292/.390/.425/.815, 74 BB / 89 K, .339 BABIP, .361 wOBA
Carter (24)
: 57.1 IP, 22 BB / 58 K, 3.92 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 3.91 FIP, .282 BABIP
Heath (25): 57.2 IP, 32 BB / 84 K, 3.12 ERA, 1.40 WHIP, 3.23 FIP, .369 BABIP

FutureSox reviews Sox Relieving pitching prospects

Here’s what they have to say on Sergio Santos:

What he needs to improve: Control, big time. Santos has the ability to be a very good Major League reliever, but until he can harness his stuff he isn’t going to succeed. His slider can be inconsistent.

Fangraphs reviews the last 4 Sox drafts

Hulet:

[Jared] Mitchell’s .417 on-base average was impressive in just 34 low-A ball games. However, his line of .296/.417/.435 was aided by a crazy-high .453 BABIP. His walk rate of 16.7% was offset by a nasty strikeout rate at 34.8%, which is obviously going to have to come down. With an ISO of .139, his power is undeveloped at this time, although he could develop into a 15-homer hitter. Despite good speed, Mitchell nabbed just five steals in eight attempts. …

SoxMachine’s AFL Review

Jim:

… Watching Danks from the center field cam instead of from the side, that’s who he reminded me of, which isn’t good. Especially since Erstad once had good bat speed, but lost it as age and injuries took their toll.  If Danks can be busted with fastballs in — just like Ryan Sweeney, and just like Jerry Owens if you want to keep it to age-relevant types — it’s going to be an uphill climb.

The good news is that Danks handled all chances in center with ease, even with the dreaded high sky causing problems for others.  He also can take a pitch, and when you package it all together, you get a guy who can be useful. He’s just not a bat anybody should be counting on.

Sox protect Gartrell/Hynick/Omogrosso/Santos/Luis

DH:

The White Sox have purchased the contracts of outfielder Stefan Gartrell and right-handed pitchers Brandon Hynick, Brian Omogrosso and Sergio Santos from Class AAA Charlotte and right-hander Santo Luis from Class A Winston-Salem. With the moves, the White Sox 40-man roster is at 37.

No Shelby?

UPDATE: whitesox.com:

Santos’ numbers might not stand out, but he’s touched 97 mph while pitching in the Arizona Fall League over the past month and has shown improvement

“Sergio has a plus arm, and he’s someone who is drawing attention out there,” said Kirk Champion, the White Sox Minor League pitching coordinator.

Champion also said Santos’ slider is around the plate more than when he first transitioned and he has an outstanding changeup.

Mayo has the Rule 5 Draft order. The Sox have the 13th pick.

Rule 5 Draft 40-man roster deadline: Friday (Nov 20)

Filed under: Chicago White Sox,MiLB — The Wizard @ November 18, 2009 1:57 pm
Tags: , , , ,

Rogers:

Stefan Gartrell, a 25-year-old right fielder who hit 23 home runs last season in the high minors, is expected to be added to the White Sox’s 40-man roster by Friday, which is the deadline to protect players from the upcoming Rule 5 draft.

Besides Stefan Gartrell, other Sox players that must be protected are 24-year-old CF John Shelby, and 25-year-old pitchers Brian Omogrosso, Matt Long, and Justin Cassel.

FutureSox on several Sox minor-league players

Norris:

I’ve liked what I’ve seen out of Henry Mabee. Although already 24, he throws a hard fastball 95 to 97, a high 70’s curveball and a high 80’s splitter. As long as he keeps the fastball down, hitters are frozen. He has a large frame and I’m eager to see what he can do next season possibly splitting time between Birmingham and Charlotte. …

Reports on Clevelan Santeliz, Lucas Harrell, Brian Omogrosso, Christian Marrero, Stefan Gartrell, Jordan Danks, and Daniel Hudson too.

Daniel Hudson promoted to AAA-Charlotte? (UPDATE)

Tags: , ,

FutureSox:

JPN hearing that Dan Hudson has been promoted to AAA Charlotte and Brian Omogrosso has a torn labrum and is out for the season.

UPDATE: This would be Huson’s 4th minor-league level for 2009. The 22-year old righty is 12-5 with a 2.14 ERA and a 142/25 K/BB ratio on the 3 teams (A, A+, AA) he has played. He’s 7-0 with a 1.57 ERA (0.85 WHIP) with a 64/10 K/BB ratio in AA Birmingham.
