Baseball America’s White Sox Draft Review

The White Sox were known to be targeting college pitchers, and they picked four of them to start their draft. BA’s top-rated lefthander, slender strike-thrower LHP Chris Sale (1), fell to them at No. 13 overall. He had a 10-1 strikeout-walk ratio and could move quickly with his plus fastball and changeup and improved slider. He could be an absolute steal with a double-digit pick. RHPs Jacob Petricka (2), Addison Reed (3) and Thomas Royse (3s) give them three solid righthanded options, with Reed a potential fast riser if he moves back to a relief role. The position-player crop offers less upside, with hard-hitting junior-college 2B Joe Terry (8) and toolsy SS Tyler Saladino (7) the most intriguing prospects.

Here’s BA’s youtube video of Chris Sale.
