The lone bright spot in AA has been promoted to Charlotte. No longer is there a need to check Birmingham's box scores.

I do not have a link. There likely isn't one just yet. I'm just re-posting what others with legitimate sources have stated.

Just got this from Marty Maloney regarding today's conference call with Brent:

Guys,

I sincerely apologize, but this is simply a case of bad timing/luck. Brent has just been called up to Charlotte today and will be on a flight at 3:00 p.m. I cannot apologize enough for any inconvenience these cancellations have caused. We’ll give me a day or so to get settled but hope to have him on by the end of the week.

Sorry again.

Marty

I'm pleased that the only "prospect" in the system that has a glove is being promoted. [Or is he merely a "suspect?"]

I'm also concerned about his development. Here's hoping that he isn't being rushed. I also hope that his bat progresses as much as his glove has up to this point.

The kid was tearing it up in AA it was clear that he needed to move up

Nothing is "clear" with the White Sox farm system.

I beg to differ.

One thing is clear:

It was a tiny 10 game sample size, and I'd prefer to give Morel more time per level to work on other aspects of his game. [Such as trying to develop power in addition to his high average.]

Besides, it's not exactly like he will be able to single-handedly turn the organization around. I fail to see any harm in him spending half a season in AA before moving to AAA. Let him make the AA All Star Game, and increase his trade value, for example. Or let him make Birmingham [marginally] watchable until reinforcements are promoted from A or demoted from AAA. Or let him enjoy being a STAR @ AA for a little while longer, while letting Viciedo get a few more innings @ 3rd base in Charlotte.

I have no qualms with this promotion really. Morel is a pretty solid prospect and very well rounded. Exceptional makeup too. He doesn't have any glaring holes in his game like many of the Sox other prospects. I'd like to see him take more walks, but that's about it. He's never going to be a power hitter.

This is the White Sox, if you hit at the minor league level you get promoted to the next level, it doesn't matter if you only hit for ten days, or that you field the ball with your face, or that the only thing you know about base running is that it is OK to over run first base, if you can hit it's all that matters.

I take it that this is not something that has changed under Buddy Bell?

Is the problem with the minor league system Bell, Kenny, ownership or all three?

FWIW, Viciedo has only played 9 games at 3B this season, as opposed to around 40 at first. We can pretty safely say, I think, that Dayan Viciedo is now a first baseman.

I just don't see what the rush is i guess .. i think that they move guys up way too fast these days .. it appears as if we might have some down years coming, so make sure that he is ready to face big-league pitching and is able to adjust to the speed of the game at the top level .. i wish Beckham would have had more time down there ..
