With the minor league season winding down and the AFL season coming up, who would everyone like to see the White Sox send to the AFL this year?

If it were up to me I'd probably send:

C.J. - he could end up with over 50 doubles this year; now that's doing work.
Marrero - I think he's a top-10 prospect in our system after this year
Ely - I'd like to see him really challenged by the AFL prospects, see if he's doing it with smoke and mirrors in AA
Morel - he's been on a tear since the All-Star break, if he could continue that against AFL competition it could be a major coming out party for him as a legit prospect

I'd send Hudson but he's due for a break after his unreal season this year and Flowers could probably use some time off as well.

No Dayan? The more U.S. pitching he sees the better in my opinion.

What about Mitchell? I like your best prospects playing as much as possible.

I'd like to see how Viciedo, Mitchell, Morel, and Ely would perform.

I'd like to see them send Flowers, so he can work on his defense behind the plate.

Sounds like Danks is an option, too, no?

I'm a fan of taking the slower approach with Viciedo and Mitchell, they're both still so raw that the AFL might just eat them alive.

I wouldn't want to send Danks to the AFL with his recurring wrist injury; the longer he can rest it, the better.

I'm going to throw out a name that will probably get laughed at, but KW Jr. would be a pick for me. The guy has been tearing it up this month, so naturally I'd want him to keep riding this streak to see if he can get things to click into next season. Not exactly the type of guy teams usually send, but I wouldn't mind it happening one bit.

I think he's on the DL. I'd send Viciedo, Flowers and that guy we just signed from LSU.

Danks played last night.
