Michael Kopech is just like White Sox fans: He wants to know when he’s going to reach the bigs. But Kopech has connections. As the Winter Meetings got started Monday in Florida, White Sox general manager Rick Hahn made an appearance on MLB Network, where analyst Harold Reynolds relayed a message from Kopech, asking the man who will eventually make that decision when the White Sox top pitching prospect will reach the big leagues. As for the answer to that question, Hahn made an apt comparison to last season, when the White Sox weren’t expecting Kopech to dominate the minor leagues the way he did. Kopech, acquired in the Chris Sale trade around this time last year, posted a 2.87 ERA in 22 starts with Double-A Birmingham, striking out 155 hitters in 119.1 innings of work. He gave up just five runs in a trio of starts with Triple-A Charlotte at the end of the minor league season.
