Trayce Thompson | OF, White Sox | Born:  3/15/1991 As usual, roster activity around the minors has increased greatly as the MiLB regular season approaches its final weeks.  A slew of notable prospects are on the move to new clubs at new levels, and I’ve been doing my best to keep y’all informed in my weekly Minor Accomplishments posts.  Well this past Sunday, I neglected to mention that Trayce Thompson, a big swinging outfielder in the White Sox system, was bumped up to Double-A Birmingham in the Southern League.  The reports on Thompson have always been consistent:  extremely toolsy, but extremely raw.  With a huge swing from the right side he generates big time bat speed, translating to plus-plus power.  Thompson hit 24 homers and posted an ISO of .216 last year at Low-A, and the power didn’t cease this year when the Sox moved him to High-A:  55 XBH (22 HR) in 510 PA, .232 ISO.

Ozzie Guillen: I need the FBI or DEA to protect Giancarlo Stanton

There are very few pitchers in baseball who look forward to facing young Marlins star Giancarlo Stanton. The 22-year-old outfielder is hitting .292 this season with 22 homers and 66 RBI. Whenever an opponent gets the opportunity to pitch around him, they almost always cash in. This leads to some tricky lineup decisions for Ozzie Guillen, who has recently been criticized for not giving...

Minor League System Pays Dividends for White Sox

Ozzie Guillen Ready to Turn to FBI, DEA to Protect Giancarlo Stanton in Marlins Lineup

If you're a Major League Baseball pitcher, you might want to avoid pitching to Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton. Because if you do decide to pitch to the guy who's built like a brick outhouse, very bad things can happen to you. You know, things like this. Or this. And this. The decision to give Stanton anything in the strike zone becomes even more insane when you consider...
