The White Sox are close to signing supplemental round draft pick Keenyn Walker. The outfielder tweeted earlier today, "Ya buddy! Finally becoming a part of the Chicago White Sox family!!" The amount of Walker's apparent agreement is unknown, but slot would be about $740K.
Walker was drafted 47th overall out of Central Arizona Junior College as compensation for the loss of reliever J.J. Putz. The switch-hitter was Chicago's first pick in the draft, as they had to give the #23 pick to Washington to sign Adam Dunn.
Baseball America describes Walker as "mostly a gap hitter with above-average speed," who "profiles as a good defensive center fielder."
