WSC Birth Years: Jack Egbert

Card #44 - Jack Egbert

Born: May 12, 1983

When speaking with a representative of the White Sox AA club in 2008, Jack's name immediately came up. The Sox organization had high hopes for Egbert. Unfortunately, those hopes soon faded after seeing Jack pitch on the Major League level. Egbert made his MLB debut on April 21, 2009 and over 2.2 innings, giving up 8 runs in just two appearances.

While still a good prospect, he wasn't the fifth starter that the Sox had envisioned. Only a few short years ago, Jack was protected by the ChiSox in from the Rule 5 Draft. In September 2009, Egbert was claimed off of waivers by the New York Mets.
