Overlooked Prospects in White Sox Farm System
Craig Dedelow – OF (Not in the White Sox Top 30 Prospects)
Drafted 267th in the 2017 draft, Craig Dedelow made a name for himself at Indiana University. In his four years at the school, the 23-year-old hit .289 with 31 home runs, 19 coming in his senior year. Although he hit .258 that year, 19 home runs is the most he hit, getting seven and five in his sophomore and junior year. His contact numbers took a hit while his power numbers skyrocketed, no puns intended.
With Rookie-level Great Falls and Single-A Kannapolis last year, Dedelow managed to hit .306 with 13 home runs. Dedelow also has a combined right-center-left field minors career fielding percentage at .983, only two errors committed in two years at three positions.

In 2017, Dedelow “just missed” the top 30 prospects list for the Sox, but Nicky Delmonico was on that list as well. This just proves to tell you, with this game, you never know for sure.
