Outfielder Jeremy Reed, named by Topps the Minor League Player of the Year after hitting .373, is among seven minor-leaguers who will join camp in Tucson, Ariz.

Story, for the Tribune-registered. (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/whitesox/cs-040121soxmoves,1,3935946.story?coll=cs-whitesox-headlines)

If he shines brightly in Tuscon, Reed may have an opportunity to hit his way into the Sox outfield picture.

According to the story, LTP also has been issued an invite to ST.

Reed and Joe Borchard, who struggled in Triple A last year, will be among the position players participating in workouts that begin Feb. 25.

"Our mind-set is they need more seasoning," Williams said. "But you can never overlook the unforeseen. If somebody goes down and they perform well, you could start a season with these guys."

Interesting. KW has not closed the door on either Reed or LTP making the roster if they perform well and someone else struggles (or gets hurt running into walls).

LTP automatically received an invite to spring training by virtue of being on the 40 man roster.

I'm not disappointed, but when I saw this headline I thought you meant Rick Reed. :(:

LTP = Light Tower Power. Joe Borchard, Former 1st round pick of the White Sox. The highly touted prospect. He once hit a home run that hit the light towers apparently.

When he was playing for Stanford he hit a homerun from both sides of the plate that cleared the light towers,in the same game.
