Chris Getz named Chicago White Sox Starting 2B
Mar 24, 2009
Chris Getz won the starting Second Base job for the Chicago White Sox by beating out Jayson Nix, Brent Lillibridge and Gordon Beckham. Getz played in ten games last year going 2 for 7 (.286) with two Runs, and RB, and a SB.
Last year for Charlotte Knights of the International League (Chicago’s AAA affiliate) Getz hit .302 (122 for 404) with 60 Runs, 24 Doubles, 1 Triple, 11 HRs, 52 RBI, and 11 SBs in 111 games. He had just six HRs in his first 1024 Minor League At Bats so don’t expect many from him at the Big League level. He did have 55 SBs in 374 games, which would translate to 24 in a full MLB season so he could be helpful in that category. He’s not a player that I would concern myself with on Draft Day, but I would keep an eye on him on the waiver wire as he could be a decent source for Runs and SBs.
