South Side Hit Pen Top Prospect No. 100: José Nin

Nin for you: The righthander’s rise was stalled a bit with a tepid 2019, forcing a fall in his ranking. (Winston-Salem Dash)

Top Prospect ranking a year ago: 73

Nin, who signed an international contract with the Philadelphia Phillies prior to the 2014 season, pitched well for their organization and ultimately reached their High-A team in Clearwater before being released prior to the 2017 season. The White Sox picked him up and inserted him into the DSL bullpen that season, where he excelled against hitters typically more than three years younger.

Nin continued his great work with Kannapolis in 2018, as he posted a 1.68 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in 37 outings. In his 48 1/3 innings for the Intimidators, he allowed just 35 hits (.202 OBA) and 13 walks (6.8%) while striking out 40 (20.8%).

Nin’s 2019 numbers with Winston-Salem weren’t nearly as gaudy, however, as he compiled a 3.93 ERA and 1.44 WHIP for the Dash in 40 outings totaling 55 innings — relinquishing 57 hits (.269 OBA) and 22 walks (9.3%) while fanning 44 (18.6%). On the plus side, he recovered from a sluggish start to post a 2.70 ERA and 1.28 WHIP once the calendar hit July. Nin will be a borderline pick to begin the 2020 season with Birmingham.

Despite my entire family being Cub fans, I grew up listening to Harry Caray and Jimmy Piersall on the radio as I listened to the entire season of the South Side Hit Men of '77. While it's true I have a myriad of other interests (American history, classic literature, classic rock, classic country, blues, jazz, gardening, family,etc.--not all in that order), few things aside from family surpass my interest in all things baseball--especially the White Sox.
