Updating the White Sox Prospect Record, Put up-Stop Commerce

Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports activities

I noticed Dylan Stop’s begin on Monday evening and wished to cross alongside some notes and video of him following his commerce to the Padres. I additionally wished to share contemporary spring notes on the brand new White Sox prospects acquired yesterday. Let’s begin with Stop. Right here is my video from his unbroadcast begin:

Stop sat largely 95-96 mph, with a handful of pitches within the 97-98 vary. His slider was its standard 85-87, with late, nasty break and plus size for a pitch of that velocity. His curveball is a second plus or higher providing at 80-81 mph and has hitter-freezing depth. He seemed like a contender’s entrance line starter. Padres and Rangers personnel had been in attendance (there have been a ton of scouts there — it was one among solely two Cactus League evening video games Monday) and left as soon as Stop was completed.

You’re in all probability conscious that we’ve got each Jairo Iriarte and Drew Thorpe ranked as Prime 100 prospects. I’ve made no change to their evaluations, however I do have some notes on their spring seems to be to cross alongside. Iriarte sat 92-95 in his March 1 outing, which is beneath what you sometimes see from him. A scout who noticed him that day famous to me that his slider appeared extra vertically oriented than standard.

Thorpe threw that day, too, and was 91-93 with the identical dominant changeup that spearheads his placement on the Prime 100. Per my scout supply, he acquired seven whiffs on 9 changeups that day.

Each Thorpe and Iriarte are on the Prime 100, so you understand the place they stand within the White Sox system no matter an replace. The ultimate prospect within the commerce, teenage outfielder Samuel Zavala, has a contemporary report and rating on the White Sox listing, which you’ll be able to both learn right here or right here. Briefly, I’m not optimistic about him hitting. I’ve him stacked within the Chicago system close to different White Sox prospects who’ve what I take into account to be excessive hit software danger.
