Default Daniel Black

Our 14th round draft pick out of Purdue, Daniel Black, is the first member of the Sox 2009 draft class to earn a promotion, from rookie ball to class A Kannapolis.

Future Sox has a great post-draft write up on Black.


Sounds like we have a promising late round sleeper on our hands.

Black made his debut tonight with Kannapolis and went 2 for 5. He played 1B.

if he's 2 or three years from the majors has a strong arm has some catching experience. I think that our greatest need in 3 years would be a sub or starting catcher. FLowers will be catching while AJ may be on the decline. Training Black to play multiple positions would be a great help.

So, I guess they're going with him, Curtis and Phegley platooning at C/1B/DH. No real point in a callup for Curtis at this point with the Ricks/Johnson platoon working well in W-S, that is unless they plan on some promotions above, and those make no sense to me (even for Flowers).
