White Sox's Luis Alexander Basabe: Jumps to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basabe was promoted to Double-A Birmingham on Thursday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

After making stops at High-A Winston-Salem in each of the past three seasons, Basabe will finally get his first taste of Double-A ball. The 21-year-old hit a solid .266/.370/.502 with nine homers and seven stolen bases in 58 games with the Dash before being rewarded with a promotion.

White Sox's Luis Alexander Basabe: Named organization's co-Player of the Month
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basabe was named the White Sox organization's co-Player of the Month for April, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Basabe, who shared the honors with catcher Seby Zavala (Double-A Birmingham), batted .313/.400/.614 with four homers, seven doubles, three triples and 17 RBI while reaching base safely in 19 of 21 games for High-A Winston-Salem. The 21-year-old has more than 550 plate appearances at the High-A level, so we should expect some level of proficiency, but it's good to see improvement on the .640 OPS he posted for the Dash in 2017.

White Sox's Luis Alexander Basabe: Hot start to begin year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basabe is 11-for-30 (.367) with four extra-base hits and two steals in seven games at High-A Winston-Salem.

The 21-year-old seems to have recovered swimmingly from the knee surgery he had at the end of the 2017 season. Though the sample size is small, Basabe's hit tool has never looked better, as he was a combined .240 hitter the past two seasons at High-A. Basabe has an immense ceiling due to his power and speed combo -- 42 steals and 17 home runs the past two seasons -- and projectable bat. The switch hitter is definitely a player to monitor in dynasty formats, even though his ETA isn't until 2019.

White Sox's Luis Alexander Basabe: Starts in left Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basabe (knee) is starting in left field and batting ninth during Sunday's spring training game against the Reds.

Basabe underwent knee surgery at the end of the 2017 season but has made a full recovery and is set to make his spring training debut Sunday. The 21-year-old could theoretically play his way onto the big-league roster with a monster spring performance, but he's a much likelier bet to open the year in the lower levels of the minors once again. He's certainly a player to keep an eye on in dynasty formats.

White Sox's Luis Alexander Basabe: Recovering from knee surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Basabe required knee surgery toward the end of the 2017 season, Josh Norris of Baseball America reports.

According to Norris, the knee injury may have been bothering Basabe for longer than he let on, which could have contributed to his struggles in 2017 (.221/.320/.320). The procedure seems like a cleanup of sorts, so look for Basabe to be ready to compete in minor-league camp this spring. Still just 21, Basabe is a solid bounce-back candidate this season. He has above-average raw power and plus speed, so if he can make strides with his hit tool, he could re-establish himself as a top-100 prospect for dynasty leagues.
