Chicago White Sox Prospect Report AAA Charlotte Knights

By Adam Sager

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.
