Daily White Sox prospects update: Quality starts from Dane Dunning and Dylan Cease

Here's your daily update on what the White Sox highly touted prospects are doing in the minor leagues.

Class A Winston-Salem

Domination all around for the Dash in this 10-4 win. Dylan Cease turned in a quality start, with three runs allowed and nine strikeouts in six innings to bring his ERA to 2.97 on the campaign. Blake Rutherford and Joel Booker each had three hits. Micker Adolfo had two hits, including his seventh home run of the season.

Double-A Birmingham

Dane Dunning was once again very good, giving up just one run in 6.2 innings in this 3-1 win. He added seven strikeouts to his season total, which now stands at 55 in 50.1 innings since being promoted to Double-A. He's got a 3.22 ERA in nine starts since joining the Barons. Eloy Jimenez added a hit and a run scored in this one, and Seby Zavala had a hit and a walk.

Triple-A Charlotte

Thyago Vieira still has a 4.23 ERA on the season, but he's settled into a nice groove recently. He hasn't allowed a run in his last six appearances, including the scoreless inning he tossed in this 8-6 win. He's given up just two hits during that stretch, too, which has been 7.2 innings long.

Class A Kannapolis

Luis Robert had two hits in this 5-4 loss. So too did Luis Curbelo, the White Sox No. 23 prospect. Curbelo, a sixth-round draft pick in 2016, is slashing .293/.356/.366 in 12 games with the Intimidators this season.

Daily White Sox prospects update: Dane Dunning, Seby Zavala with big days for Birmingham

Here's your daily update on what the White Sox highly touted prospects are doing in the minor leagues.

Double-A Birmingham

Seby Zavala returned from the disabled list and immediately banged out three hits in a 7-1 win. Zack Collins had two hits including a double and walked, also driving in a pair of runs and scoring one. Dane Dunning was terrific on the mound, striking out nine hitters during his seven innings of one-run ball. He's got a 3.03 ERA and 40 strikeouts in seven Double-A starts.

Class A Kannapolis

Kade McClure, the White Sox sixth-round pick from a year ago, will miss the remainder of the season with a knee injury. He was having a nice season, with a 3.02 ERA in eight starts and 42 strikeouts in 41.2 innings,

Meanwhile, Luis Gonzalez doubled in Wednesday's 9-8 win.

Triple-A Charlotte

Carson Fulmer made his second start with the Knights since being sent down by the White Sox earlier this month. After walking six batters in that first start, Fulmer issued four more walks in this one, a 5-0 loss. He allowed three runs on five hits and struck out seven in six innings, with those walks remaining a big concern.

Class A Winston-Salem

Luis Alexander Basabe had a triple and a walk in a 3-0 loss. Alex Call had two hits, Micker Adolfo had one and Blake Rutherford walked.
