Thanks to a league-best 41-29 record, Winston-Salem clinched a first-half Southern Division title for the first time since 2012, and their fifth playoff berth in the Dash era (2009-present). The Dash’s opponent for the Southern Division Championship Series has yet to be determined. The 2018 Dash Playoff campaign is presented by Pepsi.
Led by first-year manager Omar Vizquel, who was a three-time All-Star and 11-time Gold Glove winner during his 24-year big league career, the Dash’s .586 winning percentage was 34 points better than the next best team in the circuit, as the first-half Northern Division champion Potomac Nationals posted a .552 mark by going 37-30.
Winston-Salem currently boasts eight of the top prospects in the White Sox system per MLB Pipeline on its active roster, including infielders Nick Madrigal (No. 4), Gavin Sheets (No. 15) and Laz Rivera (No. 28), outfielders Blake Rutherford (No. 7) and Luis Gonzalez (No. 14), and right-handers Alec Hansen (No. 10), Tyler Johnson (No. 23) and Lincoln Henzman (No. 30).
