CHICAGO -- Juan Silverio came to the White Sox from the Dominican Republic in 2008 as a highly touted 18-year-old shortstop prospect. It has taken him a couple of seasons and a position change to third base, but Silverio seems to now be producing in his second stint with Class A Kannapolis.
"I like what he does," said White Sox Minor League infield instructor Ever Magallanes, who recently watched the .285 hitter with 40 RBIs in action. "I'll tell you what, he made some big league plays the last three days I was at Kannapolis, incredible big league plays -- some diving stops to his right.
"He has an average to above average arm at third base. He has solid range. For being young, he handles himself pretty well. He is handling the adversity, so I like that kid. I really do."
