Charlie Tilson
Birthdate: 12/2/1992 (24 y, 3 m, 25 d)     Bats/Throws: L/L     Height/Weight: 5-11/175     Position: OF
Drafted: 2011 June Amateur Draft - Round: 2, Pick: 19, Overall: 79, Team: St. Louis Cardinals
Contract: Add New Contract
RotoWire News: Tilson (foot) is expected to need at least a month to ramp up baseball activity after he's able to shed a walking boot, Colleen Kane of the Chicago Tribune reports. (3/26/2017)
Injury: Foot, Day-to-Day

Profile: Tilson's value isn't represented well by the counting stats. He's never hit more than seven home runs in a season as a professional and, for a player whose reputation is largely built on footspeed, he actually hasn't produced much in the way of impressive stolen-base totals. Consider: other than the 46 steals he recorded in 2015, he's never posted a mark of 15 or better in a given year as a professional. Nevertheless, Tilson's skills translate reasonably well to the actual game. His combination of contact ability and center field defense (where his speed is an asset) conspires to create a useful player. That was likely the White Sox' opinion on the matter when they acquired him from St. Louis in exchange for reliever Zach Duke at the 2016 trade deadline. Unfortunately, Tilson tore a hamstring in his first game with Chicago and missed the remainder of the season after that. A stress reaction in his right foot, suffered at the start of spring training, has left his availability for Opening Day of 2017 in doubt, as well. If healthy, he's likely to play a lot for his new club. Health remains a question as of press time, though. (Carson Cistulli)

The Quick Opinion: Greater than the sum of his counting stats, Tilson is expected to be the White Sox' center fielder in 2017, health allowing. Monitor his health status through the spring to determine his worthiness in AL-only and deep mixed league formats.
