White Sox prospect Ryan Cordell has a broken clavicle and will miss at least eight weeks

Ryan Cordell is the latest White Sox prospect to be bitten by the injury bug.

Cordell, ranked as the White Sox No. 17 prospect, suffered a broken clavicle in Monday night's Charlotte Knights game and will miss at least the next eight weeks.

It's tough news for Cordell, a promising outfielder acquired in last summer's trade with the Milwaukee Brewers that sent Anthony Swarzak away from the South Side. He had a significant back injury last season and didn't play in any games after the trade.

Cordell impressed during spring training with a .317/.417/.512 slash line, six extra-base hits, seven walks, eight RBIs and eight runs scored in 17 games. Through 10 regular-season games at Triple-A Charlotte, he had five hits in 38 at-bats.

Though he lost out on the Opening Day center fielder job to Adam Engel, Cordell figured to be one of the first options to come up to the majors in the event of an opening in the outfield. That opportunity could now go to Charlie Tilson or Daniel Palka, who already has three homers this season.

Cordell's injury adds another to the list of White Sox prospects battling various ailments. Jake Burger will miss the entirety of the season with a ruptured Achilles. Luis Robert is recovering from a torn ligament in his thumb suffered during spring training. Eloy Jimenez and Alec Hansen are working their ways back from spring issues. And Micker Adolfo has continued playing while dealing with an elbow injury, the White Sox hoping he'll be able to avoid surgery.

Daily White Sox prospects update: Michael Kopech strong, Dash continue to mash

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

Triple-A Charlotte

Michael Kopech made his second start of the season and turned in another strong outing. He allowed just one run in six innings, with his ERA at 0.90 after four shutout innings in his first start of the year. He gave up five hits and walked a pair, striking out three. He's still looking for his first win of the season. Ryan Cordell had two hits, including a double, and two RBIs. Daniel Palka homered in the Knights' 10-5 loss. It was a bad night for the bullpen, including Thyago Vieiera, who gave up a run in his 1.1 innings and now has an ERA of 12.46.

Class A Winston-Salem

How much time do you have to go over the always-packed Winston-Salem box score? In Saturday's 6-5 win, Luis Alexander Basabe and Micker Adolfo kept on slugging, each hitting a home run. Basabe is hitting .410 after a two-hit night in which he also had two RBIs, a run scored and a walk. Adolfo is at .375 and had an RBI, a run scored and a walk. Blake Rutherford was 2-for-5 with a run scored. And Joel Booker â€” who had a walk-off steal of home the other night â€” had two hits including a homer and is hitting .400 on the season. The pitching was less impressive, with recently acquired Ricardo Pinto getting the start and giving up four runs in five innings.

Class A Kannapolis

Outfielder Luis Gonzalez walked three times and stole a base in Kannapolis' 4-3 win.

Daily White Sox prospects update: Dylan Cease throws six shutout innings

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

Class A Winston-Salem

The Dash are kind of amazing. Dylan Cease starred on the mound Friday, throwing six shutout innings and striking out five while only allowing two hits. His ERA is down to 1.69 on the year. And the offense, as it's doing on a daily basis, tore it up, too. Luis Alexander Basabe picked up three more hits, including a double, and is hitting .400. Micker Adolfo and Gavin Sheets each had two hits, and the three combined for five RBIs in the 8-1 win.

Triple-A Charlotte

Charlie Tilson, Ryan Cordell, Casey Gillaspie and Daniel Palka combined for six hits, with Palka homering in a 6-5 win.

Double-A Birmingham

Seby Zavala had a hit, a walk, a run scored and an RBI in a 5-4 win.

Class A Kannapolis

Luis Gonzalez and Evan Skoug combined for three walks in a 2-1 loss.
