White Sox MiLB Report: Six Prospects Ranked in MLB Pipeline Top 100
Dane Dunning-#80 Ranked Prospect
Dunning was acquired from the Washington Nationals back in December of 2016 along with Lucas Giolito and Reynaldo Lopez in exchange for Adam Eaton. Since being acquired, Dunning has been another solid pitching prospect for the Sox.
Along with Kopech and Cease, Dunning gives the Sox some solid pitching prospect depth. Last season Dunning ended his year early due to injury. In 15 combined starts with Winston-Salem and Birmingham, Dunning posted a 6-3 record with a 2.71 ERA, 100 strikeouts and a 1.193 WHIP through 86.1 innings pitched.
Dunning might not make his MLB debut until later this season if at all. If Dunning can remain healthy on the mound, he could end his season with Charlotte or possibly with the Sox when rosters expand in September. Dunning could be a solid middle of the rotation starter with the Sox in the near future.
