The Chicago White Sox, along with every other team in Major League Baseball, started spring training with just their prospects due to the lockout. The White Sox have one of the lower-ranked farm systems but that is because everyone has graduated to the big leagues.

With that in mind, the White Sox have a newly acquired prospect that they hope will make an impact for them one day in the future. That is Oscar Colas who signed with them as an international free agent prospect earlier this winter.

Colas made his arrival to Arizona over the weekend and participated in team activities on Monday for the first time. It was the clear-cut start to his Major League career which is really cool. There is no doubt that he looks outstanding rocking the black and white of the Chicago White Sox.

We don’t know for sure how this season is going to go in terms of what team he is on but we do know that he will find success wherever that is. He is a supremely talented player that is ready to get his career going. Some time in MiLB will really do him some good.

Oscar Colas is going to be a great player for the future Chicago White Sox.

This was great to see during a bad time to be a baseball fan. Even during the toughest days of the lockout, Oscar Colas gave White Sox fans a reason to be excited. A lot of people are excited about this kid and they should be.

The coolest part is that he also seems to be equally as excited. He has had a smile on his face throughout it all and can’t wait to become a big-league baseball player. That type of attitude is really going to help him become a great player.

Chicago of the American League is the perfect place for Colas. He comes from Cuba and the White Sox has a lot of different players that can be there for him as he tries to adjust. Yoan Moncada, Jose Abreu, Yasmani Grandal, Luis Robert, and Yoenis Cespedes are all Cuban players that are a part of the organization which should really help him.

They are also all at different points of their careers so he will be getting advice from every type of player imaginable. Colas has all of the tools to be a great MLB player on a great MLB team. Hopefully, he goes out there and shows it. Monday was a great start.
