2019 Fantasy Outlook
It is extremely rare for right-handed hitting college second basemen to be drafted in the first round, but the White Sox believed in Madrigal's hit tool and defense enough to pop him with the No. 4 overall pick last year. He came as advertised, hitting .303 with just five strikeouts (compared to seven walks) in 173 PA across stops in the AZL, Sally League and Carolina League. That bat-to-ball ability is Willians Astudillo-esque, that is to say, almost unparalleled. However, almost 50% of his hits went to the opposite field and he failed to hit a home run -- only seven of his 47 hits went for extra bases (all doubles). While he lacks power, Madrigal is a plus runner, and given how often he will end up at first base, that speed should lead to 20-plus steals annually. He is capable of playing shortstop but should be a plus defender at second base. Madrigal will likely head to Double-A at the start of his age-22 season, and should be on the fast track to the majors. Read Past Outlooks

June 5, 2019
Madrigal was promoted to Double-A Birmingham on Wednesday, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
ANALYSIS
Madrigal found his groove with High-A Winston-Salem prior to earning a promotion, slashing .307/.372/.427 with two homers and 11 stolen bases over his last 19 games with the Dash. If the 22-year-old holds his own in his first go-around at Double-A, he could get a taste of Triple-A action before the end of the season.
