Over the last decade, the Chicago White Sox have struggled to produce legitimate major leaguer players with the exception of Chris Sale—though he was only in the system for a few months before receiving a big league promotion.

The White Sox’s lack of impact prospects is largely due to their drafting strategy. Rather than offering big money to high school prospects, the organization has made a habit of targeting raw, toolsy college outfielders and mid-rotation-ceiling college pitchers. In fact, of their current top 10 prospects, there are seven players who fit that mold.

However, the White Sox deviated from the aforementioned strategy this season when they selected prep outfielder Courtney Hawkins with their first-round draft pick. And although there is intriguing talent spread throughout their system, the White Sox noticeably lack prospects capable of making an impact in the near future.
