Yankees signed OF Jared Mitchell to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old was a first round pick of the White Sox in 2009. He spent most of the 2015 campaign in the Angels organization, slashing .209/.298/.318 with five homers and 22 RBI in 100 games between two minor league levels.

White Sox released OF Jared Mitchell.

The former first-round pick was just never able to progress as hoped. Now 26, Mitchell was off to a 2-for-40 start at Triple-A Charlotte.

White Sox sent OF Jared Mitchell outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Mitchell was a first-round pick in 2009 and once considered a top prospect, but he has not met the hype. The 26-year-old is no longer on Chicago's 40-man roster.

Jared Mitchell was promoted to Triple-A Charlotte on Saturday.

Rightly so. Mitchell destroyed the ball in Double-A Birmingham. In Double-A he slashed .299/.367/.561. Earlier this season, he struggled in Triple-A (hence why he was in Double-A to begin with), but he's coming in on a roll this time 'round.

White Sox outfield prospect Jared Mitchell was placed on the 7-day disabled list with a strained right oblique.

Mitchell was sent down to Double-A after batting just .132 (7-for-53) with two extra-base hits (zero homers) and 27 strikeouts in 12 games with Triple-A Charlotte, so this provides some context for his early struggles. He had a good spring with the White Sox, but the injury will slow his track to the big league level.

White Sox prospect outfielder Jared Mitchell has been demoted to Double-A Birmingham.

Mitchell, 24, began the season with Triple-A Charlotte, but he batted just .132 (7-for-53) with two extra-base hits (zero homers) and 27 strikeouts in 12 games. The 2009 first-round pick will try to get back on track against lesser competition.

White Sox optioned OF Jared Mitchell, RHP Andre Rienzo, C Josh Phegley and RHP Jhan Marinez to Triple-A Charlotte.

Mitchell showed off some of his promise, hitting .367 (11-for-30) with a homer, five RBI and a pair of steals in 13 spring games. The White Sox outfield was just too crowded for him to crack the Opening Day roster. Expect to see him at the big league level at some point during the 2013 season.

The White Sox believe that outfielder Jared Mitchell could have an impact at the major league level in 2013.

The former first round pick is fully recovered from an ankle injury he suffered in 2010, and has been drawing rave reviews from the team's instructional league this offseason. He has troubled to make consistent contact, but possesses an intriguing blend of power and speed and could compete for a reserve outfielder's role in spring training.

White Sox purchased the contract of OF Jared Mitchell from Triple-A Charlotte.

Mitchell, 24, batted .237/.358/.420 with 11 home runs, 67 RBI, 21 stolen bases and a .778 OPS in 130 games this season between Double- and Triple-A. He still strikes out way too much, but finally appears to have his speed back following his ankle injury in 2010.

White Sox outfield prospect Jared Mitchell underwent surgery to repair a torn tendon in his left ankle on Tuesday.

The surgery was called a success -- as they all are -- but the 21-year-old is expected to miss the entire 2010 season. He'll begin rehabbing in approximately 4-6 weeks. Mitchell suffered the injury while making a spectacular catch last Friday. It's a tough blow for Mitchell, who was selected by the White Sox in the first round of last year's First-Year Player Draft. He was recently ranked as the organization's No. 1 prospect by Baseball America.

Jared Mitchell, who was carted off in Friday's game, could miss the entire 2010 season after tearing a tendon in his left ankle.

This is a huge blow for Mitchell, who had been progressing well through the White Sox's system. He's a phenomenal athlete, so coming back from this shouldn't be the issue, but the loss of development time is what may hold Mitchell back going forward. Hopefully he'll be able to return for a bit of action at the end of the year, but even that seems unlikely now.

White Sox outfield prospect Jared Mitchell was carted off the field Friday after suffering an apparent leg injury while making a diving catch.

Mitchell was selected 23rd overall out of LSU in last year's first-year player draft and is off to a decent start this spring. He went down pretty hard Friday, but it's not clear if the injury is serious or if the cart was brought out as a precautionary measure. Stay tuned.

Jared Mitchell doubled twice, walked and scored three runs Saturday as a White Sox split-squad took down the Dodgers 8-4.

The White Sox are plenty excited about Mitchell, who was taken 23rd overall in last year's draft. He's due to start off this year in high-A ball after hitting .296/.417/.435 in 34 games for low Single-A Kannapolis in his pro debut.

White Sox signed first round draft pick OF Jared Mitchell.

Mitchell was selected 23rd overall out of Louisiana State University. The 20-year-old boasts 20-to-25 home run potential and good speed. He will make his professional debut with Single-A Kannapolis on Thursday.
