MLB just updated their prospect lists yesterday I do believe.

While Semien's first full season of pro ball coming out of Cal was interrupted by some injuries, there were some very encouraging signs, particularly his second-half production: .290/.392/.514. He's been inconsistent with his offensive game overall and needs to show he can do what he did in the second half of 2012 for an entire season. He has average arm strength and speed, and while he shows he can make the plays at short, that's another part of his game that's been up and down. He did see some time at second base and his future might be as a utility man, one who can punish left-handed pitching.

Nice little write up about Semien after his 4- 4 performance.

Barons' Semien perfecting leadoff skills

Also went 1- 1 tonight (4 walks) with another HR.

The guy to get a little excited about us Micah Johnson. He's been extremely productive in getting on base and stealing bases. We haven't had a guy like that in a long time. He handled the jump to high A with aplomb.

Are KY people allowed to be excited about guys that went to IU?

I still have issue with his defense...

It's probably way too soon, but with the White Sox history of aggressiveness with minor league development/promotions, do you see Semien getting a September call-up or AAA promotion?

If it's possible to screw up his development by promoting him too quickly, that's what will happen. That's the MO of the organization.

I find it odd that Petricka is not in the top 20. Now that he is a reliever, he sure looks like he has a chance to fulfill the potentIal they saw in him when he was drafted in the second round.

Considering the Barons are heading to the playoffs, I do not see Semien going to AAA. A September call-up? Maybe, it will probably depend on the Barons' performance.

Most scouting services hold their noses when putting a reliever in any top 20...

Webb is there at #18, who appears to the Sox's premier relief pitching prospect

I ask again, please don't rush these guys. Give them their minor league time so that they don't revert to bad habits when they struggle in the majors.
A relief pitcher, fine, rush him. But not the starters and especially not position players.

Somewhat old news, but Semien named Southern League hitter of the week and Snodgress named pitcher of the week for 7/28:

Semien is putting it all together in his second full season.

Snodgress is the top left-handed prospect in the White Sox system

MILB just loves the White Sox this week. Nice write up about Brandon Jacobs starting off hot in AA.

Outfielder starts strong with Barons after trade from Red Sox

Jacobs went from the #11 prospect with the Red Sox to the #8 prospect with the White Sox?

Are our systems that close at the top?
