White Sox Add Five Prospects to 40-Man Roster Ahead of Rule 5 Draft
Micker Adolfo, OF
Micker Adolfo is the third addition to the 40-man roster. Adolfo was the second-best prospect during the 2013-2014 international signing period. He hit .264 with 16 home runs and 68 RBIs in 112 games at Single-A Kannapolis this past season. He’s another guy in the system that has a lot of power.
The 21-year-old profiles as a right fielder and has a fantastic arm. His bat and his arm are his two best tools and should make him an interesting player to watch. The White Sox have a log jam of outfield prospects. But you can never have too many quality prospects.
Adolfo did have a great season in Single-A but we’d like to see him continue developing and take the other levels by storm. Similar to what Jimenez has done. That’s probably a lofty comparison but we can dream big!
