  • Sox Prospects/Minor Leagues Thread

    There won't be much to discuss this year since the MiLB season has been cancelled, but here's an article about Jake Burger making his way back to live game action this year (in this year's Collegiate League).

    Here's a video clip of a HR he hit yesterday in that league:

    I'm not suggesting that we pencil in Burger for anything moving forward, but it's great to see him making his way back after an extremely tough last two years (both physically and mentally). I'm really pulling for the guy even if there are serious doubts that he'll ever become an every day MLB player.

              We traded Jarrod Dyson for The rest of our International monies. Is there an updated list of international signings the Sox made during this period. Curious about Norge Carlos Vera specifically. It was reported that there was a deal in place in February when signing opens up in July, but the Sox org. never confirmed it.

                I think this deal was supposed to be in the next international signing period (2020-21), which was originally supposed to start in July but got pushed back to January because of the pandemic. I'm pretty sure it's a done deal it just can't be announced yet.

                  I see. I was a little nervous that since nothing was officially announced and they threw the last of their international monies to the Pirates for Dyson.

                    Chris Getz gives his thoughts on Blake Rutherford and Garrett Crochet. Also a comment on Andrew Vaughn playing some 3B and OF at Schaumburg. Getz says Rutherford has made the greatest strides among the players at Schaumburg. Too bad there was no MiLB this year to see if players like Rutherford would indeed make necessary improvements.

                      Blake looked really good this Spring. Some real hang wiffums in between other hard hit balls. Not to mention the obvious body change.

                        It'll be interesting to see how he does in spring training and the regular MiLB season next year. It seems like he's been a prospect forever, but that's because he was drafted by NYY out of high school. I believe he's younger than Nick Madrigal. He still has a couple of option years left, so it's not like 2021 is the year he must break through to the majors.
