So would I, but realistically Danks is a 4th OF/defensive replacement. It's his 3rd season in AAA.

It's mostly back end of the rotation depth, but better than nothing.

Nice to see him putting it together though even if it is his 3rd year. Hit a 3 run bomb last night. Slash line up to .302/.419/.516.

At this point of the season De Aza's OBP is about 40 points higher compared to Singleton's best year, so looking good so far.

According to Scott Merkin: Jared Mitchell named to North Division roster for 2012 Southern League All-Star Game. Would not be surprised to see him in Chi in September

Mark Gonzales ‏@MDGonzales Sox released Triple-A Charlotte pitcher Terry Doyle so he could pursue opportunities in Japan.

Kevin Goldstein ‏@Kevin_Goldstein I just talked to a scout about Doyle. He had ceiling as middle relief.

Anyone know what is up with Keenyn Walker? I noticed he hasn't played since 6/8.

Keon Barnum has hit his first minor league home run, a solo home run off of Kevin Comer of the Bluefield Blue Jays. The Bristol Sox are scheduled to play a double-header this evening against Bluefield, Wednesday's game having been rained out. The Sox lost their season-opener Tuesday evening.

Courtney Hawkins
has yet to make his first official appearance at Bristol, but may see action in the second game of tonight's double-header.

Barnum hit another home run in the 2nd game and Hawkins went 0-3

The Bristol White Sox are in action this weekend against the Danville Braves. Both Courtney Hawkins and Keon Barnum are in tonight's lineup against Danville: Hawkins is batting third and playing CF. Barnum is batting fourth, and playing 1B.

Edit: Barnum has hit his third home run in as many games, helping Bristol to a 4-2 lead through three innings. Barnum is 2-2 with a single, home run, and two runs batted in.

Rienzo strikes out 10 in 5 IP in a blowout win for the Barons.

Trayce Thompson smacks 2 more home runs in a WS 9th inning win.

3rd round pick in this year's draft Joey DeMichele tore the cover off the ball in his first few weeks of pro ball and has been promoted from Bristol to Kannapolis

Ran into a Sox farm hand's dad over the weekend (Ryan Kussmaul, Birmingham closer so it appears). His dad is a friend of my wife's uncle so I was introduced. I was wearing a Sox hat so he starts telling me about Ryan and how well he is doing and what he (the dad) thinks his prospects are of getting called up to the big club (he thinks they're good for Sept. and possibly beyond). I looked up his numbers and they are good. So I ask, what about this guy? He's 25 and a closer in AA. I don't see that as a great position to be in, but I'm curious to find out what those that follow the Sox farm teams better than I think.

Thanks in advance.

Edit-I'm not going to offended if everyone says "he sucks" or "has a snow ball's chance in hell."
