John Sickels’ favorite young players

John Sickels:

Gordon Beckham, 2B, Chicago White Sox: Age 25. Three-year downtrend in performance but still young enough to live up to what he showed in college. As with Pedro Alvarez, it is too soon to give up on him.

Dayan Viciedo, OF, Chicago White Sox: Age 23. Not as good as he hit in 2010, and not as bad as he hit in 2011. Real skills somewhere in the .280/.325/.440 range with a chance for more eventually.

UPDATE: And on the pitching side:

Chris Sale, LHP, Chicago White Sox: Age 23. I’m optimistic that the conversion to starting will go well, provided the White Sox don’t do something stupid with his workload. Considered for Top 12.
