SB Nation's John Sickels has released his final mock draft ahead of the 2012 MLB Draft; he predicts that the White Sox will go with RHP Chris Stratton out of Mississippi State.
13) Chicago White Sox: I think this comes down to a high-upside high school bat (Hawkins, Seager, or perhaps speedy D.J. Davis) or the best college pitcher still on the board. In the end, Chris Stratton, RHP, Mississippi State has a great balance of upside and refinement.
