Chicago White Sox: Solving the Felipe Paulino problem

The White Sox have a record of 13-13 and they’ve gotten a hot start from Jose Abreu, who has set the MLB record for most HRs and RBIs in April as a rookie.

Paulino has been on the DL since April 19 but before then, he was getting hammered by his...

Erik Johnson, Ball is in Your Hand…

Pitching Prospect Erik Johnson has a great opportunity to earn one of the two open spots in the Chicago White Sox starting rotation come Opening Day.

Chicago White Sox Top Prospects

I’m not sure that this team is rebuilding, but just in case they ever decide that they are, here are some of the Chicago White Sox top prospects. We did not include Abreu because we have reason to believe that he will be on the 25 man roster come April, and that reason is: $68 MIL. The list is in no particular order. 1.

Johnson offers White Sox 'a sample' in first career victory

Erik Johnson’s first two outings didn’t give White Sox manager Robin Ventura a chance to properly evaluate the young right-hander. A combination of shoddy defense high pitch counts and zero offense limited Johnson’s chances of pitching competitively. But White Sox catcher Bryan Anderson knows all about the team’s top pitching prospect after he caught him a half-dozen times...

Erik Johnson's MLB Debut Could've Been Much Worse

Erik Johnson, the White Sox pitching prospect that currently has the most promise of anyone in the organization made his debut Wednesday evening. Although his final line (6.0 IP, 5R, 3ER) looks about as pedestrian as can be, what we did see from him should not worry anybody.
