How about another minor league 1st baseman?

Scott Merkin:

Conor Jackson signed a Minor League deal with the White Sox on Saturday and was assigned to Triple-A Charlotte. The right-handed-hitting outfielder was in camp with the Rangers during Spring Training before being released.

Jackson, 29, is a .271 career hitter with 52 home runs over stops with the D-backs, Red Sox and A’s in seven seasons. But as general manager Ken Williams pointed out, Jackson never really fully recovered from Valley Fever that hit him in 2009.

“He was on a career trajectory where his ceiling was through the roof,” said Williams of Jackson, who had three productive seasons in Arizona from 2006-08. “He got Valley Fever, which was a terrible thing to catch. He will be working his way back in Triple-A.”

Terry Doyle is back with the Sox

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ March 21, 2012 8:00 pm
Tags: , , ,

I see Doyle had a 2/3 K/BB ratio in 5.1 innings with the Twinkies. 5.1 innings is a pretty small sample size. Seems the last of his 3 outings did the most damage. Hopefully, Dotson can keep his ratios as they were in AA-Birmingham.

UPDATE: Here’s Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan:

“We offered him back to the White Sox, with some discussion about possibly trying to keep him,” said Minnesota general manager Terry Ryan of Doyle, who cleared waivers and posted a 3.07 ERA over 26 starts for Class A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham last year. “I threw some things at Kenny, he threw some things back just like any of those discussions go. We couldn’t work it out, so we’re sending him back today.”

He needs to get on with his career. You never like to see a young kid that’s trying to make his way to the Major Leagues sit around too long. He’s only had a few innings here. That’s not good for anybody’s career, so we made a decision sooner rather than later.”

Ex-catcher and A’s bench coach Joel Skinner will manage AAA-Charlotte

Corey Brock:

Joel Skinner, who spent last season as the bench coach for the A’s, has been named as the manager of the White Sox Triple-A affiliate in Charlotte, N.C. Skinner spent nine seasons on the Indians’ Major League staff, with stints as the third-base coach, interim manager and bench coach. Skinner appeared in 564 games as a catcher with the White Sox (1983-86), Yankees (1986-88) and Indians (1989-91).

Other moves are Tim Laker will be the Minor League roving hitting instructor, Andy Tomberlin will be the hitting coach at AAA-Charlotte, Brandon Moore will be the hitting coach at AA Birmingham, and Bobby Thigpen will be the pitching coach at AA-Birmingham. Van Schouwen has a rundown of the Sox developmental instructors.

Trying to predict Adam Dunn’s 2nd half rebound

Zimmerman @ FG:

… The performance of this group of players did jump quite a bit in the 2nd half of the season with the biggest increase coming in the form of power (SLG increases by 0.115 and ISO increasing by 0.086). Using these numbers to predict how the rest of the season would go, Adam Dunn would have a 2nd half triple slash line of 0.198/0.340/0.427. …

BTW, Adam Dunn is felling good. And Jake Peavy agrees: “That looked like you.” Hey you two, get a room!

John Sickels on Dayan Viciedo (video) [UPDATE]

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ July 4, 2011 2:40 pm

Sickels on MLBall:

[Dayan] Viciedo is a big guy at 5-11, 230. A right-handed hitter, he has outstanding raw power and has tapped into his physical strength more effectively over the last year. He crushes fastballs and has power to all fields, giving him a good chance to hit for a high average. He has made progress improving his reads on breaking pitches, but while his plate discipline is still a weakness, he’s shown the willingness to make adjustments and learn from his mistakes. Given his age, his upside is huge. …

After launching 2 Home Runs and drawing a walk on Saturday, the Cuban Tank went 0-4 with a BB and a K yesterday and now he is hitting .323/.366/.535/.901 according to firstinning.com, .322/.365/.534/.898 according to minorleaguebaseball.com, with 20 BB and 62 K. That’s a 5.7% BB% and a a 17.7 K%. Other numbers: .363 BABIP, 47% GB%, 17% LD%, 58 RC, 6.75 RC/27, .382 wOBA, 120 wOBA+, 145 OPS+.

And here’s video of his second Home Run on Saturday (0:31).

UPDATE: And here’s video of all 5 home runs Viciedo hit while he was with the White Sox last year:

Hey, Tony Pena is in Charlotte too. Unlike Peavy, he hasn’t been missed though.

Also, Dayan Viciedo went 3-4 with 2 doubles and a homer. He’s hitting .325/.370/.542/.913 with a 16/44 BB/K ratio in 249 AB. The dude is on fire. Bring him up Kenny!

UPDATE: Seems Peavy was pitching exclusively from the left side of the mound.
