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.
For B.A. I believe it was in someone's after season update. Let me see if I can find it when I get home.
