Notes: Knights starter Carlos Rodon is the White Sox No. 1 prospect according to literally every publication that weighs in on such things. The 22-year-old southpaw possesses the best slider in the White Sox system. ... Knights' SS Tyler Saladino finished 2 for 5 with a run scored and three stolen bases on Friday night. In two games this season, Saladino is now 5 for 9 with a triple, two runs knocked in, and four steals. ... This morning the White Sox optioned LHP Eric Surkamp to the Knights. Following their win on Saturday, the White Sox also optioned infielder Carlos Sanchez to Charlotte. ... Through two games, the Knights have struck out 25 times (worst in the IL) and drawn just three walks (also worst in the IL). ... Norfolk starter T.J. McFarland made three starts against the Knights last season posting a 0-0 record with a 2.45 ERA. ... The Knights will play the final game of their four-game series with the Tides on Sunday at 2:05 p.m. RHP Scott Carroll (0-0) will take the mound across from RHP Zach Davies (0-0).
