The Catbird Speaks 11.17.17 – The White Sox Top 10 Prospects List

The White Sox Top 10 Prospects list was released Friday on Baseball Prospectus (read the whole thing right here), and Jarrett Seidler (@jaseidler) of BP’s prospect team joined Collin (@cowhitchurch) and Nick (@Nick_BPSS) to talk about what went into the construction of the list. Among the topics:

  • The overall state of the White Sox farm system.
  • The upside of Eloy Jimenez and Michael Kopech, what sets them apart from the rest of the system, and what went into picking between the two for the No. 1 spot.
  • The high upside but risk of a prospect like Dylan Cease.
  • Alec Hansen’s roller coaster ride from potential No. 1 draft pick to terrible college performance to top prospect.
  • How the hell you rank Luis Robert.
  • The next group of guys, what to like and dislike from Jake Burger, Dane Dunning, Blake Rutherford, and Zack Collins.
  • Thoughts on guys outside the Top 10, including Micker Adolfo, Spencer Adams, A.J. Puckett, Yeyson Yrizarri, and more.
  • The construction of the White Sox Under 25 rankings, as authored by Nick.
  • Some always necessary talk about Japanese wrestling between Jarrett and Collin, while Nick tries not to fall asleep.
