Not too many prospects at Charlotte, though they do have 2 real good ones. KW has been adding AAAA vets left and right to improve their crappy record. Some notables players . . .
Anderson - Looks like hes ready whenever the Sox need him. .317 AVE, .384 OBP, .577 SLG and rising.
Lopez - Rushed to this level and struggled early, but has hit pretty well since surprise callup to the big-league club.
Burke and Davis - Mediocre in limited action.
McCarthy - Hes pitched better than his record and ERA indicate. His signature K:BB stat continues to impress at 61:14 in only 47.2 IP. Should be fine as a fill-in starter if Hernandez needs a rest. In the meanwhile, he's gaining valuable experience at a high level (for somebody who barely played AA).
Diaz - Just returned from the DL and has pitched well so far with a 2.53 ERA in 2 starts.
Adkins - Hit hard and often. Opponents batting .319 against him.
Bajenaru - Continues to dominate at all levels of the minors. Currently sporting a 0.52 ERA and .091 BAA with 1 K per IP.
Munoz - Hit hard at times but still Ks 1 batter per IP.

Diaz pitches pretty well at AAA, but I scratch my head at why that success hasn't translated to the big league level.

I saw Brian Anderson play in two games this season vs. Norfolk. Aside from being a big dude, he's really good. I can't wait to see him in the White Sox uniform, assuming he's not used as trade bait down the stretch.

I wonder the same thing about Baj...although we didnt get a great look at him last year.

I did get a chance to see Josh Fields pitch 2 times this year and is getting ground ball after ground ball along with a few strikeouts.

It looks like they are using him as a setup guy, however with Diaz pitching and with Marte at the show, I think he is not going to get his cup of coffee with the Sox. The Cubs sure could use some relief in their pen........

Diaz was fine out of the pen and had a couple of nice starts, when the Sox weren't screwing around with him. Barring serious injury, he'll be back in MLB . . . though maybe not with the Sox and maybe not as a starter.

Baj didn't get much of a shot last season. The Sox rarely give rookie relievers a real chance to contribute, though they often go on to success after being traded elsewhere.
