Pretty excited for minor league ball. Hopefully we have some players break through a la Carlos Sanchez last year. Looking forward to following Johnson, Beck, Snodgress, Trayce, Walker, and of course Hawkins. Also per usual, I'm very much anticipating the draft.

I'm hoping Molina steps up this year, but now there are plenty of guys worth watching for the first time in a while.

Charlotte and Birmingham are also both opening new ballparks this season, IIRC.

The Charlotte Knights will now play in North Carolina!

Charlotte rained out.

Birmingham wins 5- 2, Tyler Saladino with the grand slam.

Kanny wins 9-2, Kale Kiser 4 for 5 with 4 rbis.

Mixed results in his first start. Gives up 6 hits and 2 runs in 4 2/3, but also strikes out 6 and only walks 1.

Sox picked up utility IF Tyler Greene and SP Jason Berken from the scrap pile and sent them to Charlotte. Stefan Gartrell, a 2006 late round pick, was released.

The White Sox transactions page is also reporting they signed LF Luis Durango but I haven't seen anything else about it. He spent last year in AAA with the Braves, decent bat (.289/.352/.335) and speed (46 SB) and was sent to the Royals minor league training camp in March.

Knights get their first win of the year after starting out 0- 4. Guess the hitters took out their frustrations as they pounded Norfolk 21- 4. Phegley and Jim Gallagher with home runs, Zaleski with a pretty easy W.

Hawkins back in the lineup and seems go have shaken the slow start. 2-2 with 2 HRs thus far.

Courtney Hawkins hit his 3rd HR of the year last night. He also has struck out in 15 of 23 PAs.

Courtney Hawkins with another 3 K's in 3 AB's today. Getting sort of silly. If he continues to struggle, one wonders if they send him to Kanny.
