The White Sox received an injury scare this past week when one of its top pitching prospects in Spencer Adams, injured his ankle after delivering a pitch for Single-A Winston-Salem Dash. Adams was pitching against the Myrtle Beach Pelicans on July 7 when his right ankle was injured after he delivered a pitch. Adams will miss 1-2 starts as the Dash expect him to be out 7-10 days after the injury. The 2014 second-round pick was 7-7 this season with a 4.07 ERA for the Dash.
As Adams will recover from his injury, the White Sox 2016 first-round pick made his professional debut last week for the Arizona League White Sox.

In the contest against the Chattanooga Lookouts, Burdi walked four batters and gave up four earned runs in one inning. Burdi didn’t record an out and only allowed one hit. His second appearance was much better on July 9 as he pitched one scoreless inning with two strikeouts against the Jacksonville Suns.
