Mitchell really impressed me during the College World Series. I'm hoping he can improve enough to come up for good sometime next year.

I'm going to guess 2012 at the earliest as he has many things he needs to refine. Base stealing, reducing the K-rate, and hitting lefties all need work.

It sure is fun to have a player with his upside though. Hopefully we draft more of them in the future.

I was at game on Saturday and Monday and Mitchell was easily the most impressive white sox player over those 2 days, easily. The kid will be called up at the very least as a September call up this year. He is a good sized kid who can fly. He showed his speed on a triple that was to the left field gap. Pretty impressive to see someone leg out a triple to left field. I was surprised how big he is.

I also thought De Aza looked pretty good as a 4th/5th OF. Good skills to have on bench.

Idk about this year. I've heard he still has a lot of work to do on his swing. Also, he won't be ready for at least a couple years. At least, that's what I've heard.

Haha. Mitchell will not be up this year. Good tools, but not many skills. Not yet at least. I'm a big fan though.

You would be correct in that he has plenty to work on. Most importantly I want to see a big cut in the K-rate.
