Kind of disappointed that Reed isn't in the rotation. The Sox desperately need to churn out some starters. He could move pretty fast through the system as a bullpen guy though.
He is going to be a good RP. San Diego State is churning out some good talent lately. The White Sox could use some bullpen strength that they don't have to go out and overspend on.

I would agree if the organization actually had some starting pitching depth. There is really nothing there. I was hoping he'd get a chance to develop in the rotation, with the pen as a fallback option.

I'm wondering if this move is to fast track him. Many prognosticators believe that in a relief role he isn't that far off from helping a big league club. It would certainly fit the MO of the organization.

Games start today. Charlotte already in hand. Dash start tomorrow. Pray for breakout years.

Peavy goes 3 2/3 innings in AA start. Leaves after throwing 72 pitches. Far from the five innings he desired.

The walks and the errors didn't help. Pitch count was too high.

Glad they pulled him early.

Posting this here since John Sickels' website is about the minor leagues. Today he posted a Paul Konerko Career Profile, looking at his career from the minors to current day. Interesting read if you are into that sort of thing:

Mitchell had his 1st HR of the season yesterday. Flowers has his 1st today.

After 2 days of postponements, Petricka is finally making his debut at Kanny. So far he's mowing them down. 5 K 0 BB 0 H through 3 IP.

Petricka's final line:

6.0 IP 0 H 1 BB 9 SO

Very encouraging start, especially because of the absolute lack of decent starting pitching in the minors. With the state of the farm, he has a legitimate shot at being the system's top prospect this year. It really is a crap shoot at this point.

Reed strikes out the side in his relief debut. I have a feeling he's going to fly through the system as a bullpen arm.

Any word on how Petricka's secondary pitches are coming along? Obviously a very encouraging box score.

Early and small sample size, but Mitchell has 7 K's in 14 at bats. His strikeout rate is something that seriously needs to decrease. He had about a 34% K-rate in his season with Kanny. Hopefully the new and refined swing aids in this.

Blanke finally ends the 1st game of Kanny's doubleheader with a 2 run HR in the 16th inning. His 1st of the season.

Trayce Thompson hit his first HR of the season tonight.

Mitchell still shaking off that rust. 1 - 4 with a SO, BB, CS, and was picked off 1st.

Dayan: 1 - 4, 2 SO, HR
