Time for this week’s weekly blog for the White Sox rebuild! Check out our minor league report for 06/07/17
Last Week’s Recap
Carlos Rodon had his first rehab start last night in Winston Salem. He gave up 5 runs and struck out 6 with 71 pitches in 3 1/3 innings. His next rehab start is this Sunday for Charlotte. Sox also recalled RP Brad Goldberg from Charlotte to replace the injured Michael Ynoa.
Class A – Winston Salem Dash
Zack Collins – C (2016 RD 1): Collins keeps doing his best to keep his average around .230 each week. He got 6 six hits and a HR. But 5 more walks got his OBP still around the 400 mark at .391
Dane Dunning – P(2016 RD 1): Two solid starts this week for Dunning. He gave up 2 runs on the 31st and 4 runs (0 ER) last start while striking out 11! He managed to drop his ERA from 5.79 to 3.86.
Class AA – Birmingham Barons
Michael Kopech – P (2014 RD 1): Kopech had a 1 run game on the 31st and followed that up with a 5 run clunker Yesterday. He added 15 more Ks this week to increase his total to 80 on the year! Kopech was recently announced as the #1 pitching prospect and #7 overall. Once someone from Charlotte gets called up, expect Kopech to move up as well.
Class AAA – Charlotte Knights
Yoan Moncada – 2B (Cuba): That’s it. Who broke Moncada? Ever since he came off the DL with his thumb injury he has been terrible. He’s had EIGHT 0-For games since coming off the DL and only collected 5 hits last weeks. He also hasn’t homered since May 7th. He’s dropped from a .331 BA to a .295 in a matter of two weeks. Don’t look for him to be called up during this slump.
Carson Fulmer – P (2015 RD 1): After giving up 17 runs in his last 3 starts, Fulmer got back in the groove and pitched a 1 run gem on Friday. He finally lowered his ERA (4.63) for the first time in 4 weeks.
Reynaldo Lopez – P (Dominican): Lopez righted the ship and had back to back quality starts. On the 31st he gave up only 1 run and struck out 6. Yesterday he gave up 3 runs. Opponents are still only hitting .229 off him. It looks like he moved on from that 8 run nightmare start two weeks ago.
Lucas Giolito – P (2012 RD 1): Giolito has been in a groove ever since his no-no! He gave up three runs and struck out 14 his last 2 starts combined! He now has a 2.57 ERA over his last 5 starts.
