Although I do not think BA is worth much, I have seen no such article from them declaring that Hawkins was no longer on the prospect radar.

"A high school slugger from Texas, Hawkins was given a very aggressive assignment to High-A at age 19 and has suffered for it, hitting just .187 with 145 strikeouts in 342 at-bats. He's also slammed 19 homers. Most scouts felt Hawkins was too raw for this level and that judgment has been proven correct. His power remains impressive and he's quite young, but we'll have to see how the Sox handle him going forward."
There's no one taking him off of prospect lists, he's too young.
