After the trades the White Sox completed at the deadline, their system is better, but it’s still in the bottom quartile of the league. Colson Montgomery is the top prospect, and he’s a high-floor player who lacks fantasy-friendly skills. Noah Shultz can’t stay healthy. I liked the trade for Nick Nastrini, but until he throws more strikes, he’s more of a number four starter instead of a top-of-the-rotation starter. Jacob Wilson, their first-round pick last July, is like Colson Montgomery. He should be able to hit, but I question how much power and speed he will have.
If you’re a White Sox fan, prepare for a drought, as I don’t see a lot of impact players in their system.
- Top Prospect: Colson Montgomery
