Middle 5: Chris Young, Ray Liotta, Sean Tracey, Jerry Owens, Casey Rogowski. As a group, these guys are better than the prospects rated immediately above them, IMO. Young took a big step forward at Birmingham, improving his ISO, BB rate, and K rate (which is still a tad high, but showing improvement while jumping a level is definitely a plus). Liotta jumped from rookie ball in ‘04 to high class A by the end of the season, and although his K rate dropped when he moved up his other peripherals remained excellent. The other three guys have some pluses, some minuses, but the White Sox should get at least one major league contributor out of those three guys.
This is an odd organization to evaluate. It’s not that they’ve failed, exactly - Crede, Rowand, and Garland have performed decently in the majors, and McCarthy showed a lot of promise in his audition - but that the expectations seemed to have been set higher so that the players *seem* to be disappointments.
