- #16 – 2015 Midseason
Zack Erwin was the second player taken by the White Sox in the 2015 Draft, after Carson Fulmer, due to the team’s lack of second and third round pick. Erwin was a starter at Clemson University almost exclusively in 2015 and he developed his workload gradually in college – pitching 60 innings of relief his freshman year, 72.2 innings as a swing man in his sophomore year and 106.2 innings his junior year. Erwin’s fastball sits in the 87-91 mph range and he has decent command of his secondary stuff, but his calling card is his ability to induce ground balls with his sinking stuff. Erwin has seen early success this season at Great Falls as shown in his stellar strikeout-to-walk ratio.
