Chicago White Sox Baseball - When the Chicago White Sox selected Chris Beck 76th overall in the 2012 MLB draft, there was a lot of excitement surrounding his fundamentals, thinking he could bring 1st round value. Beck seemed to be overlooked by most clubs heading in the draft, but not by the White Sox. They believed his delivery was fixable (the cause of his struggles) and Beck would bring outstanding value. Well based on current reports, that could hold true and it will be exciting to see how he grows as a pitcher, especially at the Big League Level. (Image) Chris Beck’s 2013 turnaround is exactly what the White Sox were buying into and hopefully this is the start of a great career for the young prospect. “He went home, and credit to him he worked his rear end off and got back into baseball shape and took off,” White Sox director of player development Nick Capra said. Beck started 26 games between Single-A Winston-Salem and Double-A Birmingham, posting a 3.07 ERA in 146 2/3 innings. Future Expectations It is believed that although Beck is not a big strikeout guy, he could very well be a reliable starter capable of eating innings (Mark Buehrle anyone?). Baseball America ranks Beck as the White Sox ninth-best prospect for 2014. The White Sox 2014 rotation is a bit of a mystery after Chris Sale and Jose Quintana, so depending on the season goes; we could see Chris Beck at some point this year. Beck will begin 2014 at Double-A Birmingham.
