The White Sox selected two of the best college bats on Day 1 of the MLB Draft with Missouri State 3B Jake Burger and Wake Forest 1B Gavin Sheets.
That trend continued in Round 3 with the selection of New Mexico CF Luis Gonzalez (87th overall) before the White Sox went heavy with the arms of Day 2 of the 2017 MLB Draft.
Gonzalez hit .361 with 8 home runs, 42 RBIs and 62 runs in 55 games for the Lobos. The left-handed hitter had an on-base percentage of .500 and a 1.089 OPS and also swiped 14 bases in his junior season.
The run on arms began in the fourth round, including a pair of Louisville Cardinals:
4. Lincoln Henzman, RHP, Louisville (117th overall)
Henzman, Louisville's closer in 2017, saved 16 games for the Cardinals. He was 3-0 with a 1.77 ERA, striking out 36 and walking 9 in 35.2 innings. The White Sox announced Henzman as a starter.
5. Tyler Johnson, RHP, South Carolina (147th overall)
Johnson saved 10 games for the Gamecocks in his junior season, finishing with a 2.39 ERA in 26.1 innings. He struck out 40 batters and walked 15 in 19 appearances. The White Sox also announced Johnson as a starter.
6. Kade McClure, RHP, Louisville (177th overall)
McClure went 8-3 with a 3.43 ERA in 17 starts for the Cardinals, taylling 102 striekouts and just 35 walks in 97.0 innings in his junior season. He was outstanding as a sophomore, going 12-0 with a 2.54 ERA in 13 starts (15 total appearances).
7. Evan Skoug, C, TCU (207th overall)
Skoug appeared in 63 games for the Horned Frogs, slashing .277/.385/.562 with 20 home runs and 67 RBIs. The left-handed hitter is a local kid, playing his high-school ball in Libertyville.
8. Sam Abbott, 1B, Curtis HS (237th overall)
The massive first baseman stands 6-foot-4, 225 pounds.
9. Craig Dedelow, OF, Indiana (267th overall)
The outfielder had a power surge in his senior season, hitting 19 home runs and driving in 54 runs for the Hoosiers.
10. JB Olson, RHP, Oklahoma (297th overall)
