With their first-round pick (23rd overall) in the 2009 amateur draft, the Chicago White Sox were looking for a high-ceiling hitter with lots of tools and projection, and they got their man in LSU outfielder Jared Mitchell, who also played wide receiver on the football team.

The most important thing that Mitchell, who turned 22 last week, needs in his development right now is simply at-bats and time on the field. He's at the Arizona Fall League to make up for lost time after missing the entire 2010 season because of a tendon tear in his left ankle, an injury he suffered while making a catch in a spring training game on March 12.
