The Chicago White Sox continued their search for hitters on Day two of the MLB Draft. In total, the organization added four position players, all of whom have great bats. Nick Hostetler, director of amateur scouting, told reporters, including Scott Merkin, Tuesday the goal was to take as many power hitters as possible.
"“What we did is go down the whole home run total and said let’s take them all. One of them is going to hit them.” Nick Hostetler, Director of Amateur Scouting"
The first two picks of the draft definitely had an offensive focus. And so did picks three through 10. So let’s see who the White Sox have added to the team. You can check out a complete list of their picks at MLB.com.
This was a good direction for the White Sox. Offensively they have struggled and pitching is definitely in a good place. Because of that, it’s no surprise they spent six of their first 10 picks on hitters.
