The third and final player that I could personally see getting the call is Dane Dunning. Dunning is probably the least likely of the three, but his versatility makes it possible that we could see him before the 2018 season comes to an end. Though he has done nothing but start this year in the minors, Dunning has experience coming out of the bullpen and very well could ultimately do that for the big league club.
You can never have enough support in the bullpen, hence why Dunning may find himself in it. The former Gator was labeled as the “most polished of Chicago’s top pitching prospects” by MLB Pipeline in his scouting report.

Given that he has already had a good amount of professional success at age 23, that makes a lot of sense. It’s no secret that the Sox bullpen could use help, and it has been starving for some over the last couple of years. Dunning could be the answer to that, and it could ultimately end up being this year that he provides it.
There’s endless possibilities, and that could be an understatement considering the MLB roster expansion day on August 1st is quickly approaching. The Sox could potentially give 15 minor leaguers the call once that day comes. Though every fan would like to see the top 15 prospects in the system get the call, it, unfortunately, is more complicated than that thus making the next move unpredictable.
Time will tell, but the hope is that the Kopech news could be the first domino to fall in what would be the future of the White Sox. Regardless of who it is that gets the next few calls, the future is still bright regardless. What’s wrong with a little anticipation anyway?
