Sox Sign First Round Pick Hawkins (http://chicago.whitesox.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120613&content_id=33235892&vkey=news_cws&c_id=cws)

I don't know much about this kid other than that he's had success both as an outfielder and as a pitcher. It looks he has more of a future in the OF than on the mound, however. If he pans out, it would be nice to team his power bat with Tank's in a few seasons.

Edit: It looks like Keon Barnum has also signed his contract. Barnum's pick was compensation for Mark Buehrle signing with the Marlins. Barnum has been compared to Ryan Howard, owing to his left-handed stroke and 6'5" frame. You can read about him here (http://www.tampabay.com/hometeam/blog/keon-barnum-signs-white-sox/14048/).
