Oral Roberts University shortstop and former Palomar all-state and All-American selection Tyler Saladino, the Chicago White Sox’ seventh-round pick in the 2010 draft, signed with the Sox on Monday.

Saladino the 2010 Summit League Player of the Year as an Oral Roberts junior, has been assigned to the White Sox’ Bristol farm club of the Rookie Classification Appalachian League.

The White Sox system desperately needed a good middle infield prospect or two as the offensively deficient Eduardo Escobar currently ranks as the teams top SS prospect. Tyler Saladino has the potential to become a starting shortstop at the Major League level with a plus glove and an average to above above average bat. In order to reach his potential Tyler will need to start putting the ball into play more consistently, but even if he can’t do this, his defensive ability could be enough to carry him to the Major Leagues as a utility infielder.
