Goldstein:

  • Tyler Saladino, SS, White Sox (Low-A Kannapolis): 3-for-4, 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI.  Seventh-round pick isn’t loaded with tools, but he sure can play baseball; .327/.414/.469 in 13 Low-A games.
  • Andy Wilkins, 1B, White Sox (Rookie-level Great Falls): 3-for-5, HR (2), R, 3 RBI, K.  Fifth-round pick is a bat-only first baseman, but hitting .333/.398/.514 so far as a pro.

MiLB: Saladino, Wilkins.
