"He's got a chance to be a guy who plays shortstop and hits 20-plus home runs," Beane said, per Richard Justice of Sports Illustrated.
Semien was part of the six-player trade that sent Jeff Samardzija to the White Sox. Semien hit .240 with eight home runs and 35 RBI in 85 career games for Chicago.
Semien has hit .240 with eight home runs and 35 RBI in 85 career games for Chicago. He was considered a top-100 prospect (No. 91) by Baseball America heading into 2014. He has appeared at second base, third base and shortstop in his MLB career.
Bassitt went 1-1 with a 3.94 ERA and 1.58 WHIP in six outings (five starts) for the White Sox last season. He was 22-10 with a 2.97 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 96 career appearances (44 starts) in the minors.
Phegley hit .207 with seven home runs and 29 RBI in 76 games over the last two seasons for Chicago.
Ravelo hit .309 with a .473 slugging percentage, .859 OPS, 11 home runs, 37 doubles and 66 RBI in 133 games for Double-A Birmingham last season. He has a career .301/368/.424/.792 slash line. The 22-year-old Ravelo has played at both first base and third base in the minors.

His final numbers didn't look so hot, but he showed his potential with a couple nice weeks. When the White Sox finally shipped him to Triple-A Charlotte, he slumped so badly that he fell off the radar for a while, but he's rebounded in July and August, batting .288 (51 for 177) with six homers and 14 doubles. Most encouraging is his exceptional on-base percentage during that time thanks to a 35-to-30 strikeout to walk ratio. His plate discipline put him on the map as a prospect last year but hasn't been as evident during his time in the big leagues so far.
So why isn't he up yet? Good question, but MLB.com has reported he will be when rosters expand in September. My guess is he gets most of the at-bats then, and with an Ian Kinsler-like combination of power and speed, I could see him making an impact in Fantasy.
