White Sox Talk Podcast: The White Sox prospect you may not know but you should

Zach Thompson might be off your radar, but the White Sox prospect is someone to watch in the White Sox organization, not just for what he's doing on the field, but for what he says off of it.

Chuck Garfien spoke with Thompson who had a 1.55 ERA last season with Winston-Salem and Birmingham. Thompson talks about the message he received from God that helped turn his career around (2:30), why he becomes a different person when he's on the mound (6:00), the talent he sees in the White Sox farm system, playing for Omar Vizquel (8:42), why he watches videos of open heart surgeries in the clubhouse (12:20) and more.
