Chicago White Sox: 3 Minor Leaguers Who Will See Time in the Majors This Season
Morry Gash
Micah Johnson is just one of the youngsters who will be in a major league uniform this season.

The Chicago White Sox have a young team, and with the rash of injuries to key components, they are getting younger.

Already, Avisail Garcia has been lost for the season, while Felipe Paulino, Nate Jones and Chris Sale have been sent to the disabled list with a variety of ailments. Add the lingering injuries Conor Gillaspie and Adam Eaton are dealing with to the mix, and the White Sox appear in for a long season.

That means that minor leaguers from the suddenly resurgent farm system are being called upon sooner than expected to play an important role this season. Charles Leesman and Andre Rienzo, for example, have already made starts, and Zach Putnam, who was a late addition to the organization, is making his presence felt after Donnie Veal was designated for assignment.
