Prospect of the Day:  1B Cody Hawn

Milwaukee drafted Hawn in the sixth round of the 2010 Draft out of the University of Tennessee. He enjoyed immediate success with the Helena Brewers after signing a professional contract, connecting with 13 home runs and posting a .948 OPS. The power production did not translate to full-season ball the next year with the Timber Rattlers, however, as his home run total dropped to six and his OPS dropped roughly 150-points to .787.

The numbers have continued to regress in High-A Brevard County, but his 2-for-4 day with a home run and four RBI on Thursday certainly turned some heads. The 6-foot-1 first baseman will need to show something extremely special with the bat to even sniff the big leagues, and with 26 strikeouts in 26 games at this point in the season, the chances of that happening seem overwhelmingly slim.

Still, the 23-year-old can do some good things with the bat from time to time. He is only hitting .202, but the power numbers appear to have returned to a certain extent. The Brewers need players such as Hawn to fill out the minor league rosters, and in the case of the Brewers’ organization, anchor the batting order for their respective team. Hawn should bat in the three or four position for the Manatees throughout the year. He will provide a modest amount of power and be a positive influence in the clubhouse.

    JP, I really enjoy the daily MiLB updates. Great addition to the site. It’s getting old reading about hitting prospects as potential positive influences in the clubhouse…has the system ever been so barren of offensive talent?? Brutal.

      The Brewers have 3 picks in the top 40 in this years draft, I think at least 2 of those need to be used on quality position prospects because they are certainly lacking in their system right now

    Chris, I agree now it seems we have a bunch of young pitching but the hitting is just terrible, it seems like you dont see much of Gindl, Schafer or Green on the list of updates.. its triple a pitching just crushing these guys
