Default Jacob Rasner

What's the status on this guy? Is he still in Class A? On the Sox? I thought the main "prize" in the Brandon McCarthy deal was not Danks, but this guy Rasner.

Can anybody give me some info? Thanks.

LOL no. rasner was a throw in, a wildcard if you will. Danks and Masset were definitely the main focuses.

They won't release minor league rosters until after spring training, he was drafted in 05 or 06, and has not been traded or released, so he is still the property of the White Sox. Jacob has the highest ceiling of the three the Sox got from the McCarthy trade, but only time will tell.

He was a top ten prospect last year in the Rangers system, definitely not a throw in. Why reply when you don't know what you're talking about?

Baseball America had him rated the Rangers #30 prospect at the time of the trade.

He was def. a throw in.

RHP Jacob Rasner was traded from the Rangers to the White Sox in a five-player deal.
Rasner, a 2005 seventh-round pick, went 6-16 with a 5.41 ERA, 154 H and 117/52 K/BB in 144 2/3 IP for low Single-A Clinton last season. He's a real long shot to ever reach the majors.
And he was in Kanny (A ball) last season and was brutal. 6.85 ERA, 1.79 WHIP, 185 H, in 139.2 IP.

In rookie ball in 2005 he was 1-5 with an 8.37 ERA and a WHIP of 1.99. So he has improved. He still is only 20, but he's a project at best. I don't think Texas would have held up a trade they liked by refusing to give him up.

so daver, do myself, sockinchisox, and dickallen ALL not know what we're talking about?? *****. he was a throw in. he wasn't the guy the deal was based around. i dont care if he was drafted out of high school. KW wanted danks and masset. he figured he'd take a shot with rasner as well ala john lujan, and TEX said sure, have him, just throw in another player on your side, and we did, that young OF.

to add proof that i "know what i'm talking about" daver, here's a link to their top 10 before the 2006 season:

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...s/rangers.html

rasner is mentioned way at the bottom, under promising high schoolers (oOoOoOo!).

and to their top 10 the winter before the 2007 season:

http://www.baseballamerica.com/today...es/262987.html

rasner's name isn't mentioned anywhere on there.

so, daver, do i know what i'm talking about now?

This should be good. Three against one. But the one is Daver. The questions are, what are the three packing, and how quickly can Daver re-load the elephant gun?

LOL the proof is right above. he loves to ACT like he knows everything about everything, but on this, he's wrong. instead of saying "i believe he was in the top 10 last year, but i'm not sure," he comes out with "why reply if you don't know what you're talking about?"

comical, i tell ya.....

I don't want to start an argument, mike asked where he/how he was doing was so I gave him an answer.
