Here’s what they have to say on Dayan Viciedo:
What needs to improve: A little bit of everything. So far in his professional career, Viciedo has been unable to hit the breaking ball with any sense of consistency, leading to frequent strike outs. His defense was also put into serious question, after committing 30 errors at the hot corner in 284 chances.
Josh Phegley was one of six selections the team announced it had come to terms with from the 2009 First-Year Player Draft. Right-handed pitchers Matthew Heidenreich (fourth round), Kyle Bellamy (fifth round) and Jimmy Ballinger (11th round) joined Phegley, the 38th overall pick from Indiana University, infielder Jared McDonald (21st round) and first baseman Leighton Pangilinan (40th round) on that list. … Of the six picks, Phegley is the only one targeted for Class-A Kannapolis. The other five will begin at Advanced Rookie Bristol.
BTW, Mark Gonzales reported that “Jared Mitchell, the White Sox’s first pick in the June amateur draft, is expected to agree to terms soon.”
FutureSox speculates on the possible moves Phegley’s assignment will cause.
