HE’S WHERE?: Righthander Chris Beck, the club’s second-round pick in 2012 out of Georgia Southern, is working on regaining flexibility that he lost when he bulked up last season. The White Sox have been impressed enough by the early results that they’ve jumped him over low Class A Kannapolis and will let him start in high Class A Winston-Salem. On the other hand, righthander Nestor Molina, the pitcher the White Sox picked up when they traded closer Sergio Santos to Toronto, is back for a third try at Double-A with an assignment to Birmingham. Molina went 2-0, 0.41 in five Double-A starts at the end of 2011 before the trade. He went 6-10, 4.26 in 22 appearances in Birmingham last year.
WHO’S MISSING: First baseman Keon Barnum is recovering from a broken hamate bone in his right hand. The club’s supplemental first-round pick in 2012 was expected to begin the season with low Class A Kannapolis.
GO SEE: The combination of Beck, 2012 first-round pick Courtney Hawkins and 2012 third-round pick Joey DeMichele on the high Class A Winston-Salem roster makes for a worthy trip, as the majority of the team’s big acquisitions from last year’s draft will all be on the same field.
