Again, this needs to be addressed with a grain of salt that it's written by Resident Moron Phil Rogers, the guy of the +1 -1 off-season evaluation system.

So Jordan Danks is no longer among the top 10 Sox prospects?

Yep. Quite telling that the Sox didn't even bother protecting him in the Rule 5.

List is awful. Marinez and Martinez in the top 10 after the years they had ? Saladino 8th? Santiago not even on the list?

Sickels' list is much better.

Yes, they do. #Marlins, #Indians just barely better than them. @jonf1220: #WhiteSox have to have the worst farm system right?

Is he destined to be Jason Dallaero-outfielder version?

He's been writing these Baseball America summaries for the Sox for years, and IMO this year's summary is pretty spot on.

I do wonder why Eduardo Escobar didn't make the top 10 this year, and Ozzie Martinez did...

I don't know who that is, but Jordan Danks looks like a 4th outfielder at best who can't hit a lick due to contact issues.

Jason Dallero was a SS taken in the first round back in the nineties, he was supposed to be a five tool player but could never hit pro pitching. The White Sox tried to convert him into a pitcher, but Jason balked at that and was eventually released.

And even more telling he went unclaimed.
