In The Minors

2003 first round pick Brian Anderson is now hitting .350 with a good walk rate and a good slugging percentage in High-A Winston-Salem after tonight's 2-4 performance. One would think the Sox would put him on the same track as Jeremy Reed last year - bring him up to Birmingham for the second half. He'd on track to be in the Sox's outfield in 2006.

Jeremy Reed went 0-4 tonight and his average has dropped under .287. I have a feeling, though, when he gets hot, he'll come up to the big club. There are several rumors flying around whitesoxinteractive and soxtalk that he's having continuing wrist problems. Let's hope not, because wrist problems are, well, problems. But it seems more likely that he's just in a temporary slump against AAA pitching.

Andy Gonzalez is getting on base quite a bit for Winston-Salem. Nice to have a shortstop in the minors with a good walk rate. I'm not sold on Juan Uribe as a long term answer at SS for the White Sox. I think he's in the process of regressing to the mean of his lifetime performance.
