John Sickels reviews his last White Sox prospects list (original list from December 9, 2009):

1) Dan Hudson, RHP, Grade B+:  3.47 ERA, 108/31 K/BB in 93 innings in Triple-A, 81 hits. 2-1, 4.56 with 18/12 K/BB in 24 innings so far in the majors. The White Sox will regret trading him.

2) Jared Mitchell, OF, Grade B: Missed entire season with nasty ankle injury. Rehab reportedly going well.

3) Tyler Flowers, C, Grade B:  .220/.326/.447, 16 homers, 106 strikeouts in 83 games for Triple-A Charlotte. Has drawn some walks but strikeouts are eating him up. Stock dropping.

4) Brent Morel, 3B, Grade B-:  .313/.354/.439 combined between Double-A and Triple-A. Doesn’t hit for much home run power and his walk rate is low this year, but has good contact hitting skills and a strong glove. …

What does Mark Buehrle think of Dan Hudson pitching-wise?

“I think [Dan Hudson] was going to be like Gavin [Floyd] and [John] Danks. You know, they struggled with control [their first year], and then each year it gets better and better. Obviously, I think [Hudson] would have stuck around if we weren’t in contention and been allowed to develop into that. Being in contention, that kind of changed things.”

Speaking of Hudson, his 2nd start since the trade:

Hudson, D(W, 3-1) 7.2 3 1 1 2 4 1 3.73
