This kid is supposed to be one of the big fish prospect-wise. He's got some mad power and a strong arm. He will need a lot of refinement, especially in pitch selection, but this is one of, if not, the biggest international signing the White Sox have made in a real long time. Tank was under different circumstances.

How do you know the international signing budget? Is that like the slot value rules?

If the Sox find a taker for Dunn or Paulie heads to the DL, Wilkins could find his way on the team this year. I like the fact that he is an OBP guy too. He is only 24 years old and could be starting to figure things out. It's nice that we have at least one decent 1B/DH prospect who appears to be close to MLB ready.

Lots of errors, and against some younger competition. This will be a more appropriate examination.

Also, Jacob May and Nick Basto to Kanny from Great Falls.

He was more than holding his own out there. He should be on good ground for a college draftee in low A. I like the move.

1-2-3 inning and 1K for Andre Reinzo at the Futures game. He is the only White Sox representative, since Josh Phegley got called up.

Rienzo has been outstanding during the months of June & July. He's probably going to see the majors this year.

If Webb is for real, see if we can get an elite prospect for Reed.
