White Sox Nab 2nd Pick

Chicago, last place finisher in the 2003 season, secured the second draft pick. (For a complete history of draft lottery results, click here.) The White Sox appear poised to start turning around their past seasons performances based on an influx of new talent. Chicago had three picks out of the first 23 players selected in last season's draft and came away with Jose Reyes (#2 selected player), Jeremy Bonderman (#14) and Brandon Phillips (#23). In the upcoming draft, Chicago once again has a few extra picks: a #2 and #4 from Arizona in the A. J. Pierzynski deal and an extra #3 in the Sammy Sosa trade with Montreal. It will be interesting to see how the White Sox team improves in the the upcoming season.
