At this point Rutherford has shown as much, if not more, than any other outfielder in their system. That includes the White Sox prospects that have their busts currently being carved for Cooperstown.

The perceived lack of power, at this point, means nothing. He's a baseball player in a White Sox system desperately in need of baseball players.

He stays...

I am not willing to say the kid is through but I never expected this type of performance.

Did the White Sox scouts not see that? Did they not see Fulmer's herky/rushed delivery?

They actually commented on this that they thought they could rework it and get him to slow down and pitch more contained. Obviously at the moment that's not working.

And its still April.

I want Blake to be awesome, but he was not impressive in the least last year.

He is very young, and has a huge ceiling, but without power he isn't a starter.

I am fine with keeping him, but to say you have seen more from Blake than Eloy is just trolling (unless you are literally just talking this extremely small sample size, which is just a pointless debate).

Also it seemed to me like a pretty big risk to take for that high of a draft pick if you have to completely rework his motion that he's had for years and hope it works at the big league level.

It's the roughly the same issue with Giolito.

In terms of being a complete player. Rutherford is better than Jimenez defensively as well as on the base paths.

Saw the Knights in Indianapolis today. At least Dylan Covey can throw six shutout innings against a Triple-A lineup.
