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.

Daily White Sox prospects update: Two doubles and a homer for Luis Gonzalez

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

Class A Kannapolis

Luis Gonzalez homered for the second straight game and doubled twice in a three-hit performance, also driving in a pair of runs and scoring once. A third-round pick in last year's draft, Gonzalez is having a mighty fine 2018 campaign so far, slashing .339/.403/.542 with five homers and 15 RBIs in 29 games. Kade McClure, meanwhile, faced only six batters and was taken out of the game after being hit with a line drive in the 7-5 win.

Double-A Birmingham

Eloy Jimenez lost his month-and-a-half-long hitting streak Saturday but bounced right back with a three-hit day Sunday, driving in a run and scoring a run, as well. Spencer Adams allowed three runs in six innings, also walking four in the 3-2 loss.

Class A Winston-Salem

Blake Rutherford had a triple and drove in two runs. Rutherford's updated numbers through 30 games: a .315/.341/.500 slash line with three homers, three triples and 30 RBIs. Alex Call had a big day with a homer, a double and three runs scored. Rutherford, Call, Micker Adolfo and Gavin Sheets combined for five walks in the 11-3 win.

Triple-A Charlotte

Charlotte picked up a 3-2 win.

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

Double-A Birmingham

Zack Collins and Seby Zavala, the White Sox two highest-rated catching prospects, each homered and drove in a pair of runs as part of two-hit days. Zavala now has seven home runs and 21 RBIs this season and is slashing .277/.377/.543 on the campaign. Collins, meanwhile, has turned an ice-cold start into a red-hot stretch and is slashing .425/.603/.750 in his last 13 games. Eloy Jimenez had another two-hit game, his seventh straight multi-hit performance. Dane Dunning allowed just three runs in his 5.2 innings, striking out six in a 9-6 win.

Class A Kannapolis

Kade McClure allowed zero earned runs over seven innings, lowering his season ERA to 2.63 and adding nine strikeouts to his season total. Evan Skoug singled and walked in a 2-0 loss.

Class A Winston-Salem

Micker Adolfo had three hits and was a home run shy of the cycle. Gavin Sheets added two singles in a 6-4 win.

Triple-A Charlotte

Charlie Tilson had a double, two RBIs and a run scored in a 5-4 win.
