With September coming up, who are some possible call-ups for the Chicago White Sox?

Here is a look at five of the top minor leaguers who may get promoted to the big club

1.Micah Johnson (2B)
Johnson is an elite base stealer, and could be a dynamic top of the order hitter. No one is sure if he will be the same game-changer as Billy Hamilton of the Cincinnati Reds, but there is no question that Eaton-Johnson at the top would not be fun to face.

Johnson has run into some injuries this year, however, he stole 84 bases in 2013, while being caught only 26 times.

Due to his injuries this season (mainly to his legs), Johnson has only swiped 21 bases. His speed is also evident when he hits as well, considering the fact that he had 15 triples in 131 games last year.

Throughout his minor league career, Johnson is a .300 hitter, and has a .369 OBP.

2.Carlos Rodon (LHP)
Rodon is the highest draft pick in years for the White Sox (No. 3 overall), and considering they drafted him in June it would seem unlikely that he would be brought to the majors this September.

According to Scott Mekrin of MLB.com, it is a possibility. Rodon has the potential to be a top of the rotation starter, but if he was called to the big leagues in September he would more than likely pitch out of the bullpen.
