Sean's one sentence analysis: The Division II National Champion was dominant in the first half of the college season but struggled with control down the stretch.
Thoughts from the community: "Another small-college gamble, Hawkins had even better ratios than Mirowski with 10.48K/9 and 2.3K/BB. In a similar number of innings, his dropoff in production as a pro was much less significant. Just turned 22 in Nov., so a repeat at Auburn is possible." - Luke Erickson, Nationals Prospects (@nats_prospects)
Previous analysis and notes:
Hawkins threw a no-hitter this season for the eventual Division II National Champions, the University of West Florida Argonauts. During the regular season, Hawkins went 11-3 with a 2.91 ERA in 86 and 2/3 innings. He struck out 101 batters and walked 44, and allowed only 12 extra base hits all season. He continued to pitch well in the NCAA South Regional, allowing 4 runs on 6 hits in 12 and 1/3 innings. Hawkins did have control issues down the stretch, but could be a solid pickup from a smaller school.
Hawkins signed with the Nationals on June 16, 2011. Follow him @BenHawkins14 .
