The Alabama native was drafted by the White Sox in the first round of the 2013 draft and spent last season with Double-A Birmingham, where he batted .312.

He was named Chicago’s top prospect this week by ESPN and was one of eleven minor leaguers to be invited to big league camp by the White Sox this year.
