Weekly report on White Sox minor league affiliates including links for daily results

The White Sox recalled one of their top prospects in Tim Anderson on June 10 from Class AAA Charlotte. Since his promotion, the speedy shortstop has hit .282 and has been inserted as the team’s leadoff hitter.

With Anderson’s promotion, the next top prospect for the White Sox that is also a top 100 prospect according to mlbpipeline.com is Carson Fulmer. Fulmer, the 33rd ranked prospect in MLB, is struggling in his first season at Class AA Birmingham. The 2015 1st round pick (8th overall) has struggled with his command this season, and hasn’t pitched more than six innings in any contest for the Barons this season.

In his start on Sunday, Fulmer pitched 4 1/3 innings giving up six hits and nine earned runs to the Mississippi Braves. Fulmer recorded nine strikeouts to go along with three walks. The former Vanderbilt star is 3-8 with a 5.48 ERA for the Barons. Fulmer has 68 strikeouts but also has thrown 42 walks.

Another top prospect in the White Sox system however has been stellar over in three of his last four starts in Spencer Adams. Adams, a second round pick by the White Sox in 2014, was named Carolina League Pitcher of the Week on Monday for his performance against Class A Salem Red Sox on June 16. Adams is pitching for Class A Winston-Salem Dash.

Adams pitched a complete game against the Salem Red Sox in a 7-1 victory for Dash. The White Sox third ranked prospect according to mlbpipeline.com allowed one run on three hits and struck out four batters. For the season, Adams is 7-4 with a 3.59 ERA for the Dash.

While Adams has been good this year for the Dash, another pitcher for Winston-Salem is performing even better this season. Matt Cooper, a 16th round pick out of Hawaii in 2014 is 4-5 with a 3.36 ERA this season. Cooper, has registered double-digit strikeouts twice this season. In each of those games, Cooper pitched eight innings.

Next: Should White Sox Consider Firing Don Cooper

The White Sox will be able to add more depth to their minor league teams as they were able to sign nine of their first 10 recent draft picks over the weekend. With the University of Miami’s elimination by the University of California Santa Barbara on Monday, 2016 first round pick Zack Collins will now be free to sign with the White Sox.
