White Sox promote 10th ranked top prospect to Class A Advanced Winston-Salem Dash. The 2016 first round draft pick was succeeding for Class A Kannapolis before promotion.
The Chicago White Sox promoted Dane Dunning from Class A Kannapolis to Class A Winston-Salem Dash on Friday. The right-handed pitcher was part of a trade that featured Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez from the Washington Nationals in exchange for Adam Eaton this past offseason.
Dunning compiled a 2-0 record in four starts for Kannaoplis with a superb 0.35 ERA. The 2016 first round pick of the Nationals (29th overall) recorded 33 strikeouts to just two walks through four starts for the Intimidators this season.

The former Florida Gator has been impressive early in the season, and he should see more advanced hitters as a part of the Dash starting rotation. Dunning hasn’t pitched higher than Class A, and he will be tested in the Carolina League with Winston-Salem.
The Sox have a wealth of pitching talent in the minors, and Dunning has been one of the more impressive prospects early in the season. Dunning could become a contributor to the Sox rotation in a few years, but his early success hasn’t gone unnoticed by the organization.
In a corresponding move, the White Sox promoted right-handed pitcher Ian Hamilton to Double-A Birmingham. Hamilton was drafted in the 11th round of the 2016 draft and didn’t give up any earned runs in seven appearances for Winston-Salem this season.
