Chicago White Sox

Earlier this year, Baseball America ranked the White Sox No. 23 in organizational talent. A look at a few of the top prospects in the White Sox system:

Top White Sox prospects

Name, Position, Current team

Jordan Danks, OF, Charlotte

The former Texas Longhorn has struggled in his first Triple-A season, and strikeouts are a big reason why. He's struck out 127 times in 381 at bats heading into Wednesday's games.

Tyler Flowers, C, Triple-A Charlotte

Flowers hasn't hit for average for the Knights this year (.226), but the power is evident. He's hit 16 home runs and driven in 52, with a .788 OPS.

Jared Mitchell, OF, Class-A Kannapolis (2009)

Mitchell has missed all of this season after undergoing surgery for a torn tendon in his left ankle that occurred in spring training.

Brent Morel, 3B, Charlotte

Part of a strong 2008 White Sox draft, the 23-year-old has remained strong since his promotion to Triple-A on June 1. Morel is hitting .315 and cutting down on his strikeouts.

Trayce Thompson, OF, Kannapolis

Just 19, the White Sox second round pick a year ago has struggled with the Intimidators, hitting just .236. But the son of former NBA No. 1 pick Mychal Thompson has plenty up upside.
