As the White Sox minor-league affiliates wrap up their respective seasons, a couple of top prospects were honored on Tuesday.
The White Sox named Eloy Jimenez and Michael Kopech their minor league player and pitcher of the month for August and September.
Jimenez, who is currently MLB.com's No. 7 overall prospect, had a batting average of .345 with seven home runs, 19 RBI and 21 runs scored in 30 games between Double-A Birmingham and Single-A Winston Salem.
Jimenez, who was acquired by the White Sox in a five-player deal with the Cubs for Jose Quintana on July 13, was also named to the 2017 Carolina League mid and postseason All-Star teams.
Jimenez finished the 2017 season with a .312/.379/.568 slash line and had 19 home runs and 65 RBI in 89 games.
Kopech, who is MLB.com's No. 12 prospect, went 2-1 with a 1.55 ERA and 38 strikeouts across five starts between Triple-A Charlotte and Birmingham in August and September.
Kopech was recently named the Southern league Most Outstanding pitcher and was also selected to the Southern League mid and postseason All-Star Teams. Kopech compiled a 9-8 record with a 2.88 ERA and 172 strikeouts in 25 starts this season.
The White Sox will welcome both Jimenez and Kopech to Guaranteed Rate Field this week.
