Guerrero went 4-0 with a 1.23 ERA in five June starts, including a shutout on June 13. Guerrero went at least seven innings all but one of those starts, a dominating run on a staff that also includes White Sox No. 2 prospect Michael Kopech. The 2017 midseason Southern League All-Star is 4-7 with a 3.51 ERA in the Minors this season.

So who else stood out in the White Sox system?

Jake Burger, Arizona League White Sox
The White Sox 2017 first-round Draft pick joined second-round pick Gavin Sheets in making their pro debuts on Sunday, with Burger going 1-for-2 with a double and an RBI. Burger and Sheets batted third and fourth in the order.

Alec Hansen, Class A Advanced Winston-Salem
Hansen's recent tear has continued even after he earned a promotion up from Kannapolis, as he threw five scoreless innings in his first start and followed it up with five innings of one-run ball on Saturday for the Dash. Hansen is the club's No. 10 prospect according to MLB Pipeline.

Danny Hayes, Triple-A Charlotte
The club's 2013 13th-round selection has homered twice in the last three games and hit at a .314 clip over his last 10 appearances. He's been a regular presence in the order for the Knights, posting a .777 OPS while hitting 15 homers and recording 49 RBIs.

Worth noting

Yoan Moncada, the No. 1 prospect in baseball, has hit safely in four consecutive games for Triple-A Charlotte to boost his batting average to .281. Moncada has an .830 OPS with 10 homers and 30 RBIs this season.

• Triple-A Charlotte right-hander Lucas Giolito, the club's No. 4 prospect, got rocked on Sunday in giving up seven runs in 3 2/3 innings. Giolito is 2-8 with a 5.40 ERA in 16 starts for the Knights.
