The Chicago White Sox have been near the bottom of the league in regards to their farm system but the past two drafts have helped them add some high-ceiling talent and a few potential mid-rotation starters.

The Chicago White Sox very well may have the worst farm system in the game, even after they acquired their top prospect in a trade this offseason.
There really is not a whole lot to say here. The front office has done a bad job of drafting and developing players through their farm system and before they traded for Molina they did not have a single prospect in my forthcoming top 100 prospects.
The system is full of power arms that project as relievers due to lack of command and secondary pitches and toolsy outfielders who all strike out way too much. It really is a trend in their system that seems like it was done on purpose due to the glaring amount of prospects who profile like that.
Below are my top 16 prospects with 2012 opening day age, position, and comments on each player. Below the top 16 is a small list of additional notable names. Enjoy.
