Taken by the Red Sox in the 10th round of the 2009 MLB June Amateur Draft, outfielder Brandon Jacobs was sort of lost man in the Boston system ever after. Overshadowed by a number of other players while in Boston, Jacobs nonetheless slowly climbed his way into relevance, and should have an easier path to the Majors from the White Sox starting blocks.

A running back in high school, Jacobs still looks the part. Now he's a strong, fireplug-shaped outfielder destined for a corner (probably left). His fielding is still rough, and he won't win any 100m dashes, but he's got a power hitter's body and a strong (if long) swing with plus bat speed. If anything gets him to MLB, it'll be what he can do with a fastball that drifts too far over the plate. Give him another year or two.

Brandon Jacobs has been traded to the White Sox for reliever Matt Thornton, according to ESPN. Jacobs should have a better shot in farm-poor Chicago, as he was blocked in Boston by more highly-touted prospects.
