Watching the Chicago White Sox slowly bring up their prospects has been a very fun ride.
The Chicago White Sox rebuilt this team from the ground up. The day they traded Chris Sale to the Boston Red Sox, they announced to the league that they are going to lose a lot of baseball games in the near future but that will be by design to eventually put together something special. Well, the times have been fun watching them develop all of these guys and bring them in slowly. They are not all here yet and they will continue looking for ways to make this team better.
Yesterday, they called up Nick Madrigal. He was their fourth overall pick in the 2018 MLB Draft out of Oregon State. He had a brilliant college career and was awesome as he climbed the ranks of the White Sox minor league system. He didn’t have his first MLB hit yet but he did reach base one time and made some plays at second base.
He is the next one in a long list of players that the White Sox have brought in to help develop and eventually give a chance at this level. We have seen guys like Yoan Moncada, Luis Robert, Eloy Jimenez, Dylan Cease, Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez, and Michael Kopech amongst others come in as a part of the rebuild and rise through the system. Some of these guys have a lot to prove but they are a symbol of hope that this team is finally doing it right.
It has been so fun to watch this organization grow after many years of mediocrity. There are still many more names on the way and they may never truly be done bringing guys up. There are always going to be players that move on in different ways so the cupboard always needs to be full of talent ready to go. All we have heard about since the rebuild began has been about the prospects. Well, now it is time for the prospects to continue helping this team win.
