No game today so let’s see how Sox prospects are doing so far:

Jordan Danks: .424/.513/.697/1.210 with 3 Ks and 5 BBs in 33 ABs
C.J. Retherford: .346/.414/.615/1.029 with 2 Ks and 2 BBs in 26 ABs
Dayan Viciedo: .333/.350/.556/.906 with 6 Ks and 1 BB in 18 ABs

In this small sample size Danks is hitting the cover of the ball and has cut down the Ks. Viciedo isn’t doing so well (remember, the AFL is a hitters league) and his plate discipline is awful. Retheford is somewhee in the middle.

You can see how all the Sox prospects are doing in their Winter Ball leagues here:

Peoria Javelinas vs. Mesa Solar Sox: Boxscore, Gameday. Dayan Viciedo is playing 3B. C.J. Retherford is playing DH. Weather: 88 degrees, sunny.

BTW, here’s Jonathan Mayo:

Sergio Santos, White Sox: Like Lo, he’s gone four innings without allowing a run. He has yielded five hits, but hasn’t walked anyone and has struck out four. Plus, it’s a cool story since Santos played in the Fall League a few years back as a shortstop.

And C.J. Retherford is twitting @ CJRetherfordAFL.

UPDATE: Peoria won 8-1:

Dayan Viciedo: 1-5, 2 RBI, 2 K, .333 AVG

Kevin Goldstein on Daniel Hudson and C.J. Retherford

Kevin Goldstein looks at those minor leaguers who saw their stock jump the most:

Chicago White Sox: The breakout pitcher of the year, right-hander Dan Hudson went from a non-descript fifth-round pick in 2008 to a big-leaguer, pitching at all four full-season affiliates while finishing with a 2.32 ERA and a remarkable 166/34 strikeout/walk ratio in 147 1/3 innings. All of the scouting evidence indicates that this breakout’s for real.

Runner-Up: An undrafted free agent out of Arizona, all C.J. Retherford has done is hit at every level. That continued at Double-A, as the second baseman hit .297/.340/.473 in 128 games for the Barons, including 46 doubles.

Jim’s first impression of Dayan Viciedo

SoxMachine:

I’m sold on Dayan Viciedo. … At the plate — the guy is a beast. You can tell Viciedo apart from the rest of the hitters on the field at Five County Stadium merely by the sound of the ball against his bat. Even his choppers have an echo, and that’s what tells me that I didn’t just see him on a good night. …

Jim also has video of Viciedo, reports on Jordan Danks, C.J. Retherford, Christian Marrero, and Jim Gallagher and some photos from the game too.

John Norris:

I’ll take this week’s edition to talk in depth about C.J. Retherford. I began following C.J.’s progress during the 2008 season while he was with Winston-Salem. Just based on his numbers there, he was impressive for being just an undrafted free agent. But, after watching him for almost an entire season, I can tell you guys he is a special player worth holding on to. …
