The Chicago White Sox had their fair share of prospects make significant contributions during the 2012 season. And if the White Sox hope to build off of last year’s successes, more than one prospect will need to surprise them in 2013.
It's going to be hard to top what happened during Robin Ventura's first season managing the White Sox, though.
See, during the 2012 campaign, the list of rookies who made an impact was as lengthy as it was unexpected.
Addison Reed, Jose Quintana, Hector Santiago, Donnie Veal and Nate Jones led a group of young pitchers who will figure greatly into the team’s future.
The rookies were needed, and they delivered in a big way.
So, can the White Sox expect to receive the same type of surprise contributions in 2013 from their current collection of minor league prospects?
Well, there are six that stand at the front of the line when the need arises.
