MINORS: The Eyes have it—Blake Rutherford and Khalil Lee

Blake Rutherford (OF, CWS)
White Sox #6 prospect (Single-A)
Dates seen: 5/7/18, 5/8/18, 6/1/18 (double-header)
ETA: 2020

As a first round pick in 2016 and the prize of the White Sox trade that sent Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle to the Yankees, Blake Rutherford has had massive expectations stacked on him throughout his young minor league career. Rutherford, at 21 years old, has had a good amount of success already, but has not yet lived up to his potential. Some prospect analysts have considered Rutherford a disappointment, as he has not hit for much power throughout his minor league career.  Rutherford’s 6 HRs in 2018 through 61 games is a career high—but some scouts projected him to have 20-25 HR potential.
