From the Field: Charlie Tilson, of, Chicago White Sox

  • Charlie Tilson was drafted by the Cardinals in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft out of New Trier HS in Winnetka, Illinois.
  • Coming out of high school he was projected to be your classic, top of the order hitting center fielder. He was never going to have a lot of power, but he would not need it. His good hitting abilities and 65/80 speed would do enough damage. Despite not getting an at-bat in the regular season, he was still considered on the the organizations Top 20 prospects entering 2012.
  • During the spring of his first pro season he went down with a shoulder injury, and was out the entire season. He would be back by instructs, and showing no ill effects from the injury
  • He would have a fine 2013 in low-A, hitting .303/.349/.388, and would end the season in high-A.
  • His 2014 was solid–he would get his first taste of AA–but an injury late in the season resulted in him missing the AFL. Still, he was a well regarded prospect, now ranking in the Cardinals Top 10.
  • In 2016 he hit .282/.345/.407 in AAA, and in late July was traded to the White Sox for Zach Duke. He would get his first taste of the majors as well, getting two at-bats with the big league club.
  • Tilson projects more as a 4th outfielder at this point, with somewhat limited utility since he does not have a cannon for an arm. Still, 4th outfielder is not a bad deal, and he is certainly young enough to develop into something more.
