White Sox Sign 22 Of 51 MLB Draft Selections

The Chicago White Sox have come to terms with 22 of their 51 selections in this year's MLB Draft, according to the Daily Herald.

Among the signings are second-round pick Jacob Petricka, a right-handed pitcher from Indiana State University, and both of their third-round picks, right-handers Addison Reed of San Diego State University and Thomas Royse of the University of Louisville.

Chris Sale, the White Sox's first round selection out of Florida Gulf Coast University is still unsigned - though there isn't anything to worry about at this point.

SB Nation's Minor League Ball, run by John Sickels, has brief scouting reports on the other early-round picks the South Siders have signed in his White Sox draft review.

2) Jacob Petricka, RHP, Indiana State University: Raw before this year, Petricka improved his mechanics this year and got his fastball up to 98 MPH at times. He still needs refinement, but has a lot of potential as a relief arm.

3) Addison Reed, RHP,San Diego State: Very polished, Reed throws 89-92 as a starter but hit the mid-90s when used as a closer in '09. He has a good slider and changeup. If used in rotation, he looks like a number three or four starter, but if he moves to the pen he could move very fast as a closer through the system.

3S) Thomas Royse, RHP, University of Louisville: Another polished arm, with a 90 MPH fastball and a workable slider and changeup.
