The White Sox hope to have a very good rotation in a few years led by Michael Kopech, Dylan Cease, Reynaldo Lopez, and Carlos Rodon. They also have some help on the way but there have been injuries that have put a cloud around the future of some of these guys. It is important that they keep adding any way they can.

The 2019 Draft might have a guy available to them that might develop into a really nice pitcher. Everybody loves a good left-handed pitcher and there aren’t much better than Tommy Henry out of the University of Michigan. His 2019 season is going very well with 14 game starts and an 8-5 record. He also has one complete game in there with a shutout. In 85.1 innings pitched he has 95 strikeouts and only 21 walks. His ERA is at 3.69. If a guy like this is sitting there for the White Sox in the third round, he would be a great addition to the future of this organization.

Wellington Castillo is a stop gap at the catching position for the Sox as the 32-year old is batting under 0.200 on the 2019 season. The closest thing they have to next in line is Seby Zavala who is ranked as the 22nd best prospect in the Sox organization.

Matt Dyer is a great value pick for the Sox in the third round. The Arizona product originally began his collegiate career at Oregon, hitting 0.268 with eight doubles and 17 RBI’s in 2017. He wanted to be closer to home in Glendale and spent 2018 at Central Arizona College and then transferred into Arizona for his junior season. Dyer slashed 0.393/0.480/0.571 with four home runs and 28 RBI’s last season
