CHICAGO (CBS) — Oney Guillen with his caustic tweets may be the best known son of White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, but Oney’s younger brother Ozney is in the headlines now as he seeks to make his way into the Major Leagues.
Ozney Guillen, 19, hopes to be taken in on the second day Tuesday or final day Wednesday for the 2011 First-Year Player Draft, MLB.com reported.
Last year, the White Sox selected Ozney in the 22nd round with the No. 668 pick, from Monsignor Pace High School in Florida, MLB.com reported. The elder Guillen was openly disappointed by his son’s low placing, and said Ozney would be preparing himself for a better performance this year.
But regardless of the round in which he is taken, Ozney Guillen tells MLB.com he plans to sign with a Major League team this year.
Ozzie Guillen tells the Web site he wants his sons to follow their dreams, as sons Oney and Ozzie Jr. have, but he also wants them all to get an education.
