Thomas Brice Report

Thomas Brice, OF, Chicago White Sox
Drafted 720th Overall (24th Rd), 2002 Draft, Faulkner State CC
Bats L/Throws L
23 YO, 6'5", 210 lbs

Brice is another stealth prospect, with above average on-base skills, a line drive stroke, and some speed to go with it. He started 2004 in the Sally League, where he hit .313/.394/.488 with 16 doubles, 6 home runs, 28 walks, 48 K's, and 10 steals (14 attempts) in 217 at bats before moving up to the Carolina League, where he posted a .273/.333/.422 with 13 doubles, 3 home runs, 13 walks, 32 K's, and 5 steals (in 6 attempts) in 161 at bats.

While he's had some success in the minors, he still has yet to see AA, and may have to settle for being typecasted as a AAAA outfielder or a 4th outfielder on a good team. He'll probably start 2005 in Birmingham.

ETA: Early/Mid 2006
2 1/2 Stars
