2012 MLB Mock Draft: Baseball America Projects White Sox Will Take RHP/OF Courtney Hawkins At No. 13 Overall

Baseball America thinks the direction in which the Chicago White Sox go with their first pick depends on whether or not GM Kenny Williams believes his team is a contender. In this case, they project the Sox to go with a high school prospect:

13. WHITE SOX: If general manager Kenny Williams thinks his team can contend, Chicago figures to go for more immediate help from the second tier of college arms (Heaney, Wacha and Mississippi State righthander Chris Stratton). If Williams decided he has to move forward with rebuilding, the White Sox will go for a higher-ceiling, longer-term project such as Hawkins or injured Ohio high school lefthander Matt Smoral.
Projected Pick: COURTNEY HAWKINS.
