Tito Polo – OF (Not in White Sox Top 30 Prospects)

Also sent over here in the midseason blockbuster trade with the Yankees last year, Tito Polo has been overlooked. In a trade involving six players, Polo’s name was the least known. But his 2017 season, especially his time with Double A-Birmingham, has made efforts in changing that.

With three teams last season, Single-A Advanced Tampa, Double A-Trenton and Double A-Birmingham, Polo had a fantastic season. He hit a slash of .301/.363/.442. He was 34 for 44 in stolen bases with nine triples, displaying his above average speed. His 27 walks also shows his patience at the plate.

It appears Polo just missed out making the White Sox top 30. It may be awhile before Polo can make his way to the south side, but before then he will definitely find himself inside the top 30. And if he translates his numbers from last year to this year, he may even find himself inside the MLB top 100.
