Chicago White Sox Farm System

Until recently the White Sox farm system has been a bottom-feeder for several years. Their time spent on rebuilding their farm system is starting to pay off. When they were able to draft Carlos Rodon with the third overall pick in the 2014 draft and Spencer Adams at 44, they were absolutely thrilled. These two guys have extremely high-ceilings and are their prized prospects. Rodon is one of the top left handed pitching prospects in the game, ranking #3 on our list (TOP LHP Prospects LIST) and #1 prospect for the White Sox.

As for Spencer Adams, #3 overall on the White Sox Top Prospect list. As an 18 year old Adams struck out 59 batters in 41.2 innings and walking just 4 batters over his 9 starts for the Arizona League Sox. Rodon skyrocketed to Triple-A and is expected to make his MLB debut this year.
The Sox gave up a lot to acquire Jeff Samardzija including Marcus Semien, Chris Bassitt, Josh Phegley and Rangel Ravelo. Their rotation mid-season would be Shark, Chris Sale and Rodon. Sweet Jesus that’s scary.

Over the last couple years they acquired young players such as Adam “Spanky” Eaton and Matt Davidson for overrated guys i.e Addison Reed. Eaton is a quality hitter if he can ever stay healthy and Davidson needs to tone down his K’s a lot. The Jose Abreu signing provided believe that the farm director and scouts still have a clue in what they do.

Second Baseman Micah Johnson slots in as a top 2B prospect, #2 on our LIST. He can hit for average, steal a bunch of bases and is a solid defender. Overall it’s a sub-par farm system but it’s steadily getting better.
