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.

Tigers, Defense Beat Johnson in Second Start
