Not like last year:
Viciedo, Beckham, Retherford, Allen, Danks, and Flowers. The extent of me following the Sox minor league teams this year will be when Dan Hudson starts. Other than that, I'll check stats once in a while.

The bulk of the top prospects are of course in Charlotte this year. The farm system is still in a rather sad state as evidenced by most of the rosters I've posted. I'm hoping some of the Kanny prospects break out. Other than that, I'm interested in how David Holmberg and Trayce Thompson perform once rookie ball starts.

AA would look a little better with Mitchell in the OF...speaks to state of the farm system a few years ago...there's no "wave" of prospects behind Beckham and the AAA group.

While not a "wave," I still like Morel quite a bit. I wouldn't be surprised if it were HE and not Viciedo that ends up taking Teahen's job in ~2012 or so.

Viciedo is already starting the shift to 1B.

Why were Danks and Viciedo promoted?

It sucks that he got injured

Not much to talk about with how bad Birmingham is, but Morel has put together a solid start to the season.

Recent BP blurb mentions:

Brent Morel, 3B, White Sox: Brent is up to .324/.361/.477 One scout noted that he is the best player on Birmingham by a mile. (not a huge accomplishment due to the lack of talent at AA) He is seen as a future every day third baseman.

Anyone have any reports on how Mitchell's rehab is going?

Morel is a potential bright spot. He has a strong glove and showed some offensive skills in the AFL last year.

Yep. Morel is pretty much the only touted prospect in AA. It's Morel and a bunch of "meh." I really like him, but I have a feeling he is tradebait.

Mitchell isn't playing this year at all according to reports. He also mentioned as such during last Friday's LSU/Georgia game when he was being interviewed. He mentioned there is a possibility he will play in the AFL/Winter Ball.

I actually have the opposite view, given that there really aren't any other options in the system for a future replacement for Teahen. Now, KW may again fill 3B via a trade or FA signing in a few seasons. But given what we know today, Morel looks like the most likely heir to that position, until he proves himself NOT to be, which would lead to KW's wheeling and dealing.

Three years is plenty of time to find alternative replacements though, and it's also a long time to keep your heir waiting in the wings.

That said I wouldn't trade him, unless he's the deal breaker in an A-Gon deal, but that's because I think Teahen will flop.

We agree on the bolded part. I always cheer for every White Sox player. But, I've seen scant evidence that Teahen will be a high-quality player at that position, both offensively and defensively.

I suspect that if Morel continues to progress, that Teahen's 3rd season under contract will be spent as a utility player for this team. That is, IF he's still on the team. Meanwhile, Morel would then take over the starting 3B spot.

Two other pitchers to watch are Henry Mabee and Miguel Socolovich. I like Mabee as a reliever. We'll see if he can keep moving up. Socolovich, for a guy who weighs so little (155 is his listed weight), can really whip the ball and gets it up there in the low 90s. If he can put some weight on his 6'1" frame, he might be all right.
