What do you mean?

Dude is pretty raw and need reps. He missed a whole season. His K-rate was worrisome in Low-A and he also isn't the greatest base-stealer despite great speed. The Sox are often too aggressive with their prospects so I wouldn't be surprised if he starts in AA. I'd rather see him in Winston-Salem though. Overall, he has tons to work on and plenty to prove. I'm not penciling him in anywhere with the Sox just yet.

They're starting him in Kanny.

My concern is that it is reported most scouts say he is a good football player and a good athlete. Unfortunately, the Sox are not the Bears.

Didn't expect that at all. Love it though.

As opposed to being a good baseball player. You can be a good athlete, but lack the higher, more specialized, skill set of a MLB player.

Buddy Bell noted on the radio that Mitchell will be going to Winston-Salem.

so, anyone have any updates on Mitchell?
or at least a link to a good website where I can follow his progress?

I'm helping run an LSU site now, and I'm trying to keep the locals updated on former Tigers in the minors (and majors)

You don't have to be an athlete to be a ball player.

You can keep a tab on the daily box scores, play-by-play, and individual stats, on the Winston-Salem Dash site. One can listen to broadcasts of the games for free as well.

http://web.minorleaguebaseball.com/index.jsp?sid=t580

Baseball Reference & Fangraphs are great for stats too. Unfortunately Jared isn't doing too hot. .216/.266/.398 at the moment with 2 SB's, and 3 CS on the year. The 34% K-rate will have to go down significantly for him to be successful.

We have to treat this like year 1 for him. You are allowed to say it's early when a player is returning from a big injury and hasn't played much baseball in a long time.

Knowing the Sox, the plans are to bring him up to the bigs and start him by August. They don't like to rush their prospects.
