2012 MLB Draft Results: White Sox Complete 12th Draft Under Kenny Williams

Hoping to improve arguably the worst farm system in all of baseball, the Chicago White Sox completed their 12th draft under GM Kenny Williams on Wednesday afternoon. It's the first MLB Draft to follow the new spending rules within the CBA, which were pushed for by White Sox owner Jerry Reinsdorf.

Generally one of the cheapest teams in all of baseball when it comes to the draft despite playing in one of the nation's biggest markets, that's no longer as much of an issue now that CBA rules limit how much teams can spend in the draft. Reinsdorf was one of the key figures behind the changes.

On Wednesday, the final 25 rounds of the draft were completed, allowing Williams to put the final touches on his newest draft class. The White Sox did leave their comfort zone this year by nabbing a pair of prep bats with their first two picks, but they proceeded to take just two more prep players in their subsequent ten picks.

Here's the full list of White Sox draftees:

  1. OF Courtney Hawkins (No. 13 overall)
