Gartrell, 25, might be the White Sox’s biggest sleeper since Magglio Ordonez. A 31st-round pick in the 2006 draft, he has hit .280 with 21 home runs and 85 RBIs in 127 games between Birmingham and Triple-A Charlotte. He looks a little like Jermaine Dye on the field and will make the Sox think hard about exercising Dye’s $12 million option for 2010. “He really has improved his hitting,” Birmingham hitting coach Andy Tomberlin. “He has a chance to hit for serious power.”
