Best Pitcher: A first-round pick in 2001 from the Chicago suburbs, Kris Honel is adjusting quite nicely to life outside the frozen climes. In his first full year as a pro, the 19-year-old compiled a 2.78 ERA and struck out 160 in 158 innings, all but five with Class A Kannapolis. Honel throws in the low 90s with terrific feel for a knuckle-curve, which acts like a slider.

Hes extremely polished for a pitcher who played a limited schedule as a high schooler and could be knocking on the door of Comiskey Park by late 2004.

Hopefully when he breaks in he wont be expected to be the number 2 starter from day 1

I'd kind of want the Sox to treat him like they treated Garland (without all the rushing and ****). Start him in the 'pen and let him work his way into the rotation.
