Chicago White Sox Prospect Report AAA Charlotte Knights

The Charlotte Knights are the AAA affiliate for the Chicago White Sox and they have some players playing at a very high level.  Let’s take a look at some of the players who are doing the best.

SP Dylan Axelrod- Axelrod was actually just called up to the big league club due to Jesse Crain being placed on the DL.  But while with Charlotte, Axelrod had a 1.08 ERA through his first 4 starts.  He had a 26/4 K/BB ratio with 19 hits allowed in 25 innings pitched.

SP Eric Stults- Stults has been great in the Charlotte rotation with a 2.08 ERA in 4 starts.  He has 21 strikeouts to 10 walks in 21 innings.

RP Brian Bruney- Bruney was one of the last guys cut from the major league team at the end of Spring Training.  But has pitched very well out of the Knights pen with a 1.50 ERA with 12 Ks and 7 BBs in 12 innings pitched.

RP Leyson Septimo-  He has yet to let a run cross the plate with his 0.00 ERA in 10.2 IP.  He has a K/BB ratio of 11/8 while giving up 5 hits.

C Josh Phegley- Josh has an amazing slash line of .397/.423/.559 with 6 doubles, 1 triple, 1 home run and 8 RBI in 68 plate appearances.  He also has been very hard to strike out only fanning 7 times.

1B Dan Johnson- The veteran has been very good  at the plate hitting .303/.466/.545 for an OPS of 1.011.  He will be first in line to come up if Adam Dunn or Paul Konerko are forced onto the disabled list.

OF Jordan Danks- Danks is finally starting to put together a nice offensive season.  He has a line of .275/.409/.435 with 3 doubles, 1 triple and 2 home runs with 11 RBI.  Already has 17 walks to help that over .400 OBP.  Still could turn into a productive 4th outfielder.

The Chicago White Sox do have some players here that could come up if needed and produce.
