From today's Trib (http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/whitesox/cs-050817soxbits,1,590137.story?coll=cs-home-headlines):
The Sox will be sending a lot of their top prospects to the Arizona Fall League. Selected were pitcher Sean Tracey, who leads the Southern League with 12 wins for Double-A Birmingham; third baseman Josh Fields, the Sox's first-round draft pick in 2004, and Class A Winston-Salem shortstop Robert Valido. Birmingham outfielder Ryan Sweeney was selected but has been nagged by a sore wrist and could be replaced by outfielder Chris Young, who leads the Southern League with 38 doubles and is second with 21 home runs. The Sox will add two pitchers before the Arizona league opens Oct. 3.

Being rumored that Sweeney has been battling a wrist injury for over a month that will likely require surgery after the season. Hasn't been able to hit anything on the inner half of the plate for a while. Was hit on the same hand Tuesday night.
