This is a revised list from Baseball America print edition (issue #0902 - January 12-25, 2009)
1. Gordon Beckham, SS
- The #8 overall pick in the 2008 draft out of Georgia led NCAA Division I with 28 homers last spring that concluded with an appearance in the College World Series.
2. Dayan Viciedo, 3B
- The Cuban defector compares to the Giants' first baseman Angel Villalona as a power prospect, but with better defense.
3. Aaron Poreda, LHP
- The power lefty's strong Arizona fall league performance could help him make the big league staff.
4. Tyler Flowers, C
- Freed from being stuck behind Brian McCann, Flowers topped the AFL with 12 homers but his catching skills are suspect.
5. Clayton Richards, LHP
- Many White Sox fans were hoping the lefthander would get a postseason start in place of Vasquez.
6. Brandon Allen, 1B
- He showed off impressive power by homering twice off David Price in his first Double-A game.
7. Jordan Danks, OF
- John's little brother is best athlete in the White Sox system.
8. Brent Lillibridge, SS
- With 2008 rookie star Alexei Ramirez moving to shortstop, Lillibridge will get a chance to compete for the second-base job.
9. Chris Getz, 2B/SS/OF
- Speaking of second base competitions, Getz is in the mix as well, though he must recover from a broken wrist.
10. John Shelby, OF
- The son of the former big leaguer had 15 homers and 33 steals last year.
