Biographical Information[edit]

Pitcher Sean Tracey was signed by the Chicago White Sox and scouts Joe Butler and Matt Hattabaugh as an eighth round pick in the 2002 amateur draft after going 8-7, 4.47 his last year in college. He made his pro debut that year with the Bristol White Sox and posted a 3.02 ERA for the club, 7th-best in the league and going 5-2. Tracey moved up to the Kannapolis Intimidators in 2003 but likely intimidated no one as he allowed a .305 average, walked 46 batters in 41 2/3 innings and went 2-7 with a 9.50 ERA. Sent down to the Great Falls White Sox when short-season leagues opened, Tracey went 8-5, 3.69 for that Pioneer League club and cut his walks to 22 in 93 innings. In 2004, Sean improved drastically in his second crack at A ball. With the Winston-Salem Warthogs, the right-hander went 9-8, 2.73, posting the second-best ERA in the league behind Trae McGill. Tracey did lead the league in both walks (69) and hit batsmen (23) but allowed just 109 hits and struck out 130 in 148 1/3 innings. 2005 brought Sean to the Birmingham Barons, where he had a 14-6, 4.07 record. He led the league in games started (28) and hit batters (14). He made it to the majors in 2006 after a 5-3, 3.18 start to the season with the Charlotte Knights.
