Charlotte starts our review of farm system off — and it kicks off a very bad 2021 for the North Carolina teams.
The Knights went 47-81 this season, which was the worst Triple-A record — yes, Charlotte was 30th of 30 clubs.
Early on, this team quickly turned into the White Sox travel club with the amount of injuries the Sox suffered, especially with position players. There were also a lot of breakouts for players, from Gavin Sheets to Jake Burger. Meanwhile Charlotte’s pitching staff, which was probably considered the team’s the strength before the season, faltered both at Triple-A and the majors.
