The updated 2022 MLB pipeline prospect rankings for the Chicago White Sox have been released, and a new face has taken the top spot on the list. That would be 20 year old shortstop Colson Montgomery who was drafted by the White Sox in 2021.
Also in the top 5 of the White Sox prospect rankings this year, are outfielders Oscar Colas at number 2, and Yoelqui Cespedes at number 4. These are two players to watch even closer due to the current hole the White Sox have at right field.
Although the White Sox already have their superstar shortstop in Tim Anderson, Montgomery is certainly a great talent to watch for in the White Sox farm system.
The White Sox farm system certainly is not what it used to be, but that is mostly because those players are now in the big leagues contributing to the team. However, names like Cespedes, Colas, and Montgomery are great talents that are on their way.
While many feel Cespedes and Colas should be the top spot on the prospects list, it is Montgomery that receives the nod at number 1.
Montgomery has had early comps to players like Corey Seager and is a left-handed bat that hits for power, something that the White Sox could use. Finding a spot in the lineup for him is going to be the big thing to watch as he could potentially make a move to third base if needed.
The most important take away? The White Sox still possess nice talent that could contribute in future years. The consensus with the White Sox these days is that the time to win is now.
Nonetheless, there is nothing wrong with smiling in regards to the future of White Sox baseball ay Tony La Russa?
