White Sox outfield prospect Courtney Hawkins went 3-for-4 with a home run and a walk for High-A Winston Salem on Wednesday.
Hawkins started the season off well, hitting .289/.358/.602 in April, but has hit .244/.331/.444 with 16 doubles, four triples, 10 home runs, and 82 strikeouts in 312 plate appearances in May, June, and July. For the season, he has 107 strikeouts in 407 plate appearances (26.3 percent), and is now primarily playing left field. Two years ago, the White Sox drafted Hawkins 13th overall, but he has fallen off every top 100 list, and would not even be on top 10 White Sox prospects were it not for the poor state of their farm system.
