Courtney Hawkins, White Sox set to agree
Courtney Hawkins, the No. 13 overall pick in this year’s Draft, will be in Chicago on Monday and officially sign with the White Sox. His bonus will be for $2.475 million, the assigned value for the pick.
Hawkins was the No. 12 player on MLB.com’s Top 100 Draft Prospects list heading into the Draft. The Texas high schooler has as much raw power as anyone in the class and also hit the low 90s from the mound. His future, though, will be as a power-hitting outfielder. His calling card right now might be his backflipping ability, but the bat will take over soon.
