Trayce now has more HR's and is quickly catching up to the OPS that bryce harper has in the same league...

Trayce is a better power hitting prospect then Bryce Harper (that was for joey)

If you mean Mychal Thompson, the ex-NBA PF/C, then yes Trayce is one of his sons.

BTW, Mychal Thompson is Bahamian, not puertorican. :)

 **The Chicago White Sox promoted right-handed pitching prospect Addison Reed from Low-A Kannapolis to High-A Winston-Salem, where he threw two shutout innings of relief on April 23rd. He now has 10 innings pitched combined at the two levels, giving up four hits, one run, one walk, with 14 strikeouts. Drafted in the third round out of San Diego State last  year, Reed closed in 2009 but started last year in college. The Sox seem to think he'll advanced more quickly as a reliever, due to outstanding command of his low-90s fastball, slider, and curve. His arsenal is diverse enough to start, but he throws harder when used in the bullpen. Personally, I'd use him as a starter until he proves he can't handle it, but he could reach the majors within a year as a reliever.

The "other" pitcher we traded with Hudson to DBacks for Edwin

• Low Class A South Bend lefty David Holmberg (Diamondbacks) struck out a career-high 12 batters in seven innings of work. He allowed two runs (both unearned) on four hits and took the loss because his Silver Hawks teammates scored only one run.

CHICAGO—Considering that the White Sox dealt with an array of relief problems during the first two weeks of the regular season, it might not be long before former starting pitcher Anthony Carter gets a shot to display his talents.

Carter, 25, has embarked on his second season as a reliever at Triple-A Charlotte and hadn't allowed a run in his first two appearances for the Knights while striking out three in four innings.

Carter's acceptance and adapting to relief after four minor league seasons as a starter could help him advance.

"I didn't have to preserve myself so I could go six innings," said Carter, who signed as a draft-and-follow as a 26th-round pick out of Georgia Perimeter College in the 2005 draft. "I was out there for one or two innings, and whatever I had in the tank was what I put out there."

Carter made a strong impression in spring training but was blocked out of a veteran bullpen. The coaching staff, however, was aware of his success for Team USA in the Pan Am qualifying tournament last fall and in the Arizona Fall League.

Carter credited Double-A pitching coach J.R. Perdew and pitching coordinators Kirk Champion and Curt Hasler with helping him make a smooth transition.

"He didn't look at it as a demotion," Champion said. "He looked at it as an opportunity. So that was the first hurdle he had to clear. He started being more aggressive and becoming more of a 'I'm coming at you' mentality rather than as a starter where he's moving the fastball around and changing speeds, He really took to it. He was never afraid to throw inside as a starter.

"He takes the mound with confidence because he knows he's prepared and doesn't think about being a reliever instead of a starter."

CHI-LITES

• To replace Jerry Krause as their director of international scouting, the White Sox will train several evaluators—including Dominican academy coordinator Rafael Santana, Dominican scout Guillermo Reyes and Venezuelan scout Amador Arias—in the "White Sox way," general manager Ken Williams said. Those scouts will work with amateur and pro scouts and prepare in case a worldwide draft becomes part of the next Basic Agreement, Williams said.

• Third baseman Jon Gilmore and shortstop Tyler Saladino were in extended spring training recovering from hand injuries. Gilmore could resume playing by the end of April, while Saladino was expected to return in May.

Carter not doing too well in AAA yet. I would bring up Kinney or Bruney if we needed someone.

Given the problems they've had with international player recruitment, is this a good idea?

Charlotte lost 8-5, Dolsi took the loss. Charlotte appears to have a good bullpen. Viciedo hit another homer among his 2 hits, but he had 2 errors in RF too. Danks and Lucy also homered.

Birmingham postponed
 
 
Winston-Salem lost 4-2, Santiago with a so-so start. Homers for Wilkins and Martinez, Martinez is still over .400. Mitchell had a double with 2 Ks in 4 ABs.

Can't talk about him much when he does not deserve it. He and Phegley are both so over-rated.

I sure hope not. I doubt we see Harrell back on the Sox. He pissed them off this spring, and he is not doing much. I would rather see Kinney or Bruney.
