    The University of Alabama's top prospect was supposed to be Gardeck, a juco transfer and unsigned eighth-round pick of the White Sox last June. His fastball has reached 98 mph and he's flashed a plus-plus slider, but neither of those were in evidence this spring. He was tough to scout as he didn't throw enough strikes to earn consistent innings for the Crimson Tide, even on a 21-34 team. He threw just 12 innings, walking 12 and striking out 16, and got just seven outs in Southeastern Conference play while walking four.
