The Chicago White Sox organization will send three of their top prospects to the All-Star Futures game on Sunday, July 9th in Miami, Florida.

Three of the top prospects in the Chicago White Sox system will be hitting the big stage on July 9th to take part in the MLB All-Star Futures Game. Top Triple-A prospect and arguably the best prospect in the game Yoan Moncada leads the way. Moncada will be joined by White Sox flamethrower Michael Kopech and catcher Zach Collins.


We will get the chance to see a key player from each level of the minor league system. Moncada is currently playing for the Charlotte Knights in Triple-A. He is currently playing lights out with a .281 batting average and 10 home runs along with and .835 OPS.

Moncada looks like he is ready for the big leagues, however, the White Sox are taking their time with him and don’t want to rush him up. There is really no reason to bring him up right now anyway in my opinion. Sox fans should be very excited to see Moncada play in the Futures Game. It may be the first time for many to watch Moncada showcase his talents.

As for Michael Kopech, he is currently playing for the Birmingham Barons of Double-A. Kopech is 4-5 in 15 starts with a 3.72 era. Kopech had many Sox fans excited as he is known for his fastball that can reach over 100 mph. I can’t wait to see him pitch on this stage and see how he reacts to the lights and cameras of a bigger stage.

Kopech has the potential to be a player that White Sox fans will see for many years. It’s not every day that someone with his skill set comes in the league. However, he is still young and will need to figure out how to handle throwing at such a high speed continuously. Control and command can be an issue for Kopech.


Zach Collins is a very interesting piece to the Chicago White Sox rebuild puzzle. Collins currently is playing for The Winston-Salem Dash in Single-A. He was drafted by the White Sox last summer out of the University of Miami. Catcher has been a position that the Sox seem to struggle with finding consistency and they hope Collins can be that consistency.

I for one am very excited to see Collins develop and make it to the big leagues some day soon. He has a long road ahead of him but that’s fine, take the time in minors to perfect his game.
