Juan Silverio promoted to Class A Kannapolis Intimidators and more

Mansch @ GF Tribune:

The Voyagers, who open a three-game series tonight in Casper, Wyo., against the Ghosts, will be without star third baseman Juan Silverio, who Tuesday was promoted to Single-A Kannapolis in the Sally League. Silverio was hitting .299 with team-high totals of 26 hits, nine doubles, three homers, 16 RBIs and 44 total bases.Cron said he is happy for Silverio, a 19-year-old from the Dominican Republic.

“That’s kind of what it’s all about,” he said of the promotion. “Juan came here with a nice positive attitude and worked his tail off to produce. He did a great job for us and he deserves a chance to move up. At the same time I feel real good about the guys who are going to step in there.”

Hopefully things go better this time.

UPDATE: FutureSox’ has more.

Merkin:

Upon signing with the White Sox, Sale is projected as a starter and will begin at either Class A Kannapolis or Class A[+] Winston-Salem. The White Sox obviously will monitor his innings, while Sale plans to continue his conditioning in the interim, although taking some time off from throwing.

Trayce Thompson at Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet

Filed under: Chicago White Sox — The Wizard @ April 23, 2010 12:50 pm
Tags: , , ,

at number 6:

Team: low Class A Kannapolis (South Atlantic)

Age: 19

Why He’s Here: .385/.500/.846 (10-for-26), 3 HR, 3 2B, 7 RBIs, 6 R, 3 BB, 8 SO, 0-for-1 SB

The Scoop: Thompson struck out 41 times in 106 at-bats last summer in Rookie ball. But even with a strikeout rate hovering near 40 percent, Appalachian League managers were not deterred, praising the second-round pick for his power and physicality. This year, Thompson is making his doubters look foolish, connecting for six extra-base hits in his first week of South Atlantic League play. It’s too soon to make lofty comparisons, but Thompson’s career beginnings are reminiscent of another second-round prep pick from Southern California: Mike Stanton. The Marlins’ slugger hit all of .161/.226/.268 with 21 whiffs in 56 at-bats during his 2007 pro debut.

And Nathan Jones is at the ‘Helium Watch’ section (end).

UPDATE: And from the hot sheet chat:

Mike (Utica, NY): Does Thompson have more upside than anyone in the Whitesox system?

Matthew Eddy: You could make that case. But Jared Mitchell might have something to say about that when all’s said and done.
