From Sickels AQA:

Q: What do you make of Flower’s year? Do you think its too early to call him a bust? And what do you make of Phegley? Thanks in advance.

A: Not liking what Flowers did this year….I think he went backward. not a bust yet, but heading in that direction. Phegley had limited playing time due to injury, but it looks like he’s got strikeout issues too. He’ll be in the Arizona Fall League and I hope to see him there.

On Brent Morel and Dayan Viciedo:

Q: If the White Sox do not sign Konerko, does that mean Viciedo slides over to first and Morel starts at third on opening day next year?

A: That’s plausable, although i’m not at all convinced that Viciedo will hit enough to be a good regular 1B at this point. He’s got holes.


Q: and ultimately, what are their ceilings? Will they both hit enough for those positions?

A: Morel….Joe Randa, and that’s a compliment, Joe Randa was a good player. Viciedo….ceiling, .300 hitter with 25 homer power if he gains any command of the zone. Floor: .220 hitter, washes out.

Stats: Tyler Flowers, Josh Phegley, Brent Morel, Dayan Viciedo.
