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

The White Sox Triple-A minor league affiliate Charlotte Knights welcomed back Jacob May on August 9. May, who had missed time recovering from an oblique injury hadn’t appeared in a game since July 15. May wasn’t having much of a productive season with the Knights before his injury.

More from White Sox Prospects

The outfielder’s return for the Knights can serve as a showcase for a potential call-up next month. May, who has tools to be a fourth outfielder is currently hitting .237 with Charlotte. May has collected four hits over six games since his return. The 2013 third-round pick could still find himself with the White Sox next month, but he will need improve offensively over the next two weeks.

While May is adjusting back to playing with the Knights, another player is adjusting to pitching in Triple-A. Zack Burdi, the White Sox second pick of the first round was assigned to Charlotte on August 11. Burdi has been fast tracked through the farm system since being drafted. After appearing in 12 games for Double-A Birmingham, Burdi finds himself closer to MLB. With the Barons, Burdi sported a 3.94 ERA.

Burdi became a force in Birmingham’s bullpen after a rough start to his Double-A career. Burdi pitched in six consecutive scoreless appearances after allowing two earned runs on July 20. In his two appearances with the Knights, Burdi has recorded three strikeouts in three innings pitched. A native of Downers Grove, Ill., Burdi has three strikeouts with one walk allowed so far for the Knights.

Alec Hansen, has continued to pitch well for Great Falls of the Pioneer League. Hansen, the 49th overall pick in the 2016 MLB draft, has been impressive thus far. Through five starts for the Voyagers, Hansen is 2-0 with a 1.75 ERA. In his last start on August 10, Hansen recorded 10 strikeouts in six innings pitched. The second-round pick from Oklahoma University didn’t give up an earned run in his start. This was the second consecutive start where Hansen gave up no earned runs, with double-digit strikeouts.
